We recently booked two rooms at The Rathgowry to attend our daughters' graduation. Late check up was no problem at all, Sharon was friendly and welcoming. The perfectly white, high quality linen makes all the difference when you're tired! First class choice at breakfast, help yourself to cereal, tea, coffee, juice, plentiful toast, followed by your choice of hot breakfast.... More

We found The Rathgowry more by accident than anything else, but were pleasantly surprised by the uncomplicated manner in which we were greeted well before check in time. After storing our cases in our wonderfully clean room and amusing our seven month old daughter with the lovingly supplied dancing bears above the cot, we wandered the few yards down to... More

There aren't enough stars in the sky to rate how perfect this place is. Perfectly clean, prefecty located, perfectly run with prefect hosts. Sharon and Mike indulged our (ratgher, my) rather odd requestes to make my partner's biirthday trip away as special and wonderful as I could have hoped for. Cannot recommend this place highly enough.

My first impressions of the Guest House start with email correspondence with Sharon. She is very efficient and responded to all my emails in a timely manner answering all my questions in a hugely helpful way. Upon arrival we were checked in very quickly (payment upfront) and shown to our Family Room. The room is large and very clean -... More

My single room was equipped with everything I could have wanted, spotlessly... More

The bedroom was beautifully decorated very clean and comfortable. It was especially nice having a sofa to sit on as well. The breakfasts were... More

Having just returned from a three day break we can only say that the Rathgowry was a wonderful experience. Hosts Sharon & Mike were extremely pleasant and helpful. The whole place was spotlessly clean and Mike's breakfasts were a delight, setting us up for the day. Clive and Audrey, Bath
