Rowallan House
Ranked #4 of 17 Newton Stewart B&B and Inns
Reviewed 20 April 2012

My husband & I stayed at Rowallan House one night on our way to Belfast on a business trip in March. We were welcomed warmly by our hosts Rob & Julie, a delightful & interesting couple, nothing was to much trouble to make our short stay enjoyable. Our bedroom was spacious and comfortable and we were served a lovely breakfast in the conservatory overlooking the garden. Rowallan House is a beautiful old house steeped in history and as it's owners Rob & Julie are doing a sterling and sensitive job of retaining its original charm yet creating a comfortable home for present day guests to enjoy. We will certainly return to Rowallan House to explore the area when we have more time. A BIG THANK YOU to Rob for driving round the town on a Sunday morning to find us and return the shoe I'd lost! A real Prince Charming!

With nice large rooms ,great gardens and great service , you won't find a nicer place to stay in the area than here . There is a well stocked bar and snooker room for those who don't want to stray to far at night and the home cooked food is second to none , before you look somewhere else stay here first and you'll be glad you did . I cannot reccommend this 4* b&b highly enough !!

Room Tip: All the rooms are large but my favorite is room one plenty of light and a nice view over the gardens

A really nice place to stay - a bit more pricey than most B&Bs but you'll see why.

We had a warm welcome, the room was clean and comfortable and the bathroom was huge! Newton Stewart is a good base for exploring the surrounding countryside. The nearest Pub was welcoming and well stocked with whisky and the Cinema had the most comfortable seats ever. We didn't see the red squirrel, so we will have to come back!

Two very nice people run a spotlessly clean and comfortable b & b. Very quiet location with ample secure parking. Ideal for 2 or 3 couples having a reunion (as were we). An evening meal on the 1st night prepared by Julie was typical good home cooking. A short walk into town lead us to the Galloway Arms for dinner on other nights where we found excelent local food (with piles of chips that could not be avoided). There were no important negative features but those planning a visit might like to consider bringing some extra clothes hangers, a bottle of shampoo and some non slimline tonic for the G&T.
Please go and see the red kites being fed at 2pm. The local golf course was a pleasure to play with reasonable green fee and buggy hire (phone 1st). The town itself, appart from its location, is rather undistinguished.
We greatly enjoyed meeting Rob and Julie and would certainly stay again if we were in the area.

I spent 5 night at Rowallan over the August bank holiday weekend. The area, the house, the garden, the host's, the beauty, the breakfast and dinners, the fun of the trip was overwhelming. What a Fanatatic guesthouse a beuatiful area.

I look forward to my next visit

A five day stay in an extremely comfortable and quiet B and B. The bedroom was spotless well equipped, ensuite with a lovely view over the town to the hills beyond. There are two very comfortable resident lounges, one being a private, residents' bar, a conservatory dining room overlooking the garden, excellent parking space, a lovely garden with seats and benches and 6 bedrooms. Wi-fi is available, dinner and or packed lunches can be arranged in advance. It is a five minute walk into the town centre and there are at least six restaurants available within a ten minute walk; yet the building and garden are quiet and very restful. Rob and Julie, the owners are very welcoming and eager to meet guests' requirements. I heartily recommend Rowallan to those seeking a comfortable and peaceful place to stay. The weather over the weekend was brilliant, too!
