“Basic overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

While touring Scotland The Rowentreebank was our last stop. If you're a young backpacker it's ideal, for those looking for 4star plus don't go. It's basic clean & you get an excellent breakfast. Location lovely looking out towards the loch. This little B&B needs a lick of paint & TLC.warm & friendly welcome but sadly overpriced.

Stayed with dave and his wife at the start of september, the guest house is a lovely dated dorma bungalow, scenery from the front of building is stunning, loch long and and the ben arthur directly in front of you. The owner is a very friendly person who goes out of his way for your comfort,the rooms are warm and cosy and are ideal for a couple of nights stop over, food was absolutely beautifull well served and plenty of it at breakfast time, full english was given a mark out of ten, ten well done,rowantree and the owners, and thanks for making my stay a happy one,

Me and my friend were looking for twin romm for ine night and we were very happy to find this small B&B. May be it was a bit old at night, but still I highly recommend this place.
The breakfast is ok if you know what to order.

Room Tip: We had a twin room facing the road and the lake.

We booked a double room (en suite). The room was very small, facing the road and appointed with a tiny TV. The mattresses were old and very well used.
The bathroom was in a very bad condition. The shower head was leaking and the laminate floor was swollen from water. There also was mildew in the bathroom (baseboards and ceiling).
In the dinnig room there was mildew on the ceiling as well. We had a full English breakfast which was too greasy.
We really cannot recommend this place - it was not worth the money.

can't describe the feeling after a long drive to arrive at this place and feel my heart sink.
The smell of damp hung about the rooms which the plug in air fresheners and open windows did not dispel. Everywhere looked shabby and and couldn't imagine having to use the shower or loo.
couldn't face staying in the room so walked round Arrochar knocking on doors of hotels and B&b's to try and find somewhere else to sleep that night (and on our return a week later.) At 8.30pm we were directed to a fabulous house about 3 doors away in which we stayed both that night and again our return. We returned to Rowantreebank paid our money, got our belongings and moved up the road. I hate being rude about the place as they are obviously struggling but it is dreadful and with a £5 price difference between them and the fabulous house we ended up staying in then its not even as if its a cheap option.

The landlord was welcoming and helpful. My single room was small and the establishment a bit tired and worn and in need of a spruce-up, but I felt this was acceptable given the price I paid through my online booking. If I peered out of the velux window in my top floor room there were great views of the loch and mountains - affording a very useful early-warning weather assessment for climbing Ben Arthur (The Cobbler) on the opposite side of the loch (Ben Arthur makes for an excellent walk - or scramble to the rocky summits for the more adventurous). Nice pub not far down the road for an evening meal. Good breakfast. The B&B is on a busy A-road which made it a bit noisy at night. Useful location en route to the Highlands. Not the most romantic of establishments but not a rip-off either.

Room Tip: I suspect all rooms will suffer a bit from road noise.
