Rowallan is a solid & lovely old house set in a mature garden, and is a very well run & welcoming guest house. If you normally stay in modern hotels of the anonymous / corporate interior designer style, this establishment may not be for you, but for those used to staying basically in other people’s interesting homes, this is one of the best. The house is very clean, the bed and bed linen was extremely comfortable, the water was hot and plentiful for a bath (the over-bath shower pressure was a bit low). The house is very quiet and I slept better than I have in any hotel of any grade in as many years as I can remember. The food, both breakfast and the optional set evening meal was excellent. Coffee at breakfast time was really good too. There is a “house bar” in the lounge selling a limited but perfectly adequate small range of drinks for two hours around dinner time. Newton Stewart is literally minutes away on foot so there are pubs and eateries in easy reach. For serious dining options you may need to drive if you are looking for “fine dining” but the town offers a variety of options which the owners of Rowallan will list for you. Wi Fi is free and good in the bar / lounge - not so great in our bedroom but this was not a problem for us. We would happily return.
