We enjoy staying at B&Bs and were thrilled to find Rowanlea as we wanted to explore the Southern Highlands from Perth. Rowanlea was perfect. Within walking distance to the city centre and excellent restaurants (with discounts if you stay at Rowanlea). We had a beautiful room with the most comfortable bed. The amenties and attention to detail were very well... More

I haven't had much experience of guest houses as I tend to opt for hotels. I highly recommend staying at Rowanlea and will certainly return. For me, it was the added extras of quality bedding, towels and a decent hairdryer which will see me return. Added to this was the personal service given by Stewart from arrival to departure.

I stayed here in July 2015 for one night whilst on a solo cycle tour passing through Perth. I can honestly say it is one of the best B&Bs I have stayed in for a long time. I was given a single room which was spotlessly clean, well decorated with a superb en-suite shower. Very comfortable nights sleep! The owner... More

I booked Rowanlea for my parents for their visit end June/ early July and they could not speak highly enough of Rowanlea and Stewart. They were made to feel very welcome. The room was great. Service was faultless. Breakfast was great. Thanks you Stewart for looking after them so well
