“Exceptional Stay and the Best Guesthouse I have ever been too!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2010

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!

Rowallan House was a lovely place to stay. The setting is a lovely house with an abundance of space to relax, a pretty garden, copious parking and tucked quietly away. Crucially our room was spacious and the bed very comfortable (one time 8 month pregnant lady slept well!). By far the best aspect is the welcoming couple who run Rowallan House; you are made to feel most welcome and they have a real personal touch, happy to chat. The breakfasts provided was delicious and a good size. The whole place has a homely and pleasant atmosphere.

I would recommend this B&B to anyone and only wish we travelled to the Galloway area more often to take advantage of Rowallan House and its charming owners.

Rob and Julie's friendly welcome for my wife and I after nearly five hundred miles on a wet day speaks for their approach and hospitality to guests. A large, clean en-suit room with a comfortable bed is available. After a good nights sleep, home cooked breakfast awaits with fresh local produce. Fuelled up for the day, with the sun showing promise we headed out each morning to walk, talk, and admire the stunning countryside views over moorlands, loch and bays. Thoughtfully, picnics and dinner can be provided if booked in advance with more home cooked food.
Rowallan House provides a homely, well run guest house base to conveniently explore this part of Galloway and coast just off the A75. Highly recommended.

The home cooked food is always great , the service and cleanliness i cannot fault . I look forward to arriving whenever i hear i've got to go to scotland for work , it's like a home from home and if you are a snooker or pool fan then the snooker table their will suit you down to the ground . Also rob plays a mean game of snooker if you are up for it !! I have been going for many years and will continue to visit as long as they own it for many years to come . thanks

We were a group of six on a two day walk passing through Newton Stewart and stopped off with Rob and Julie for the night. We received a very warm welcome and they pulled out all the stops to cater for our needs which was much appreciated after a long - wet! - walk. Even though 2 of our number were vegetarian Julie still provided a great evening meal. We had a great evening in the bar/lounge where Rob proved a superb host - but no good at snooker! Would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone.
