5 stars is not enough to describe the customer service provided by the guesthouse, the comfort of the room and the bed, immaculate bathroom, the cleanliness of the whole place and the quality of the breakfast. And, surprisingly, Scottish breakfast wasn't the only choice you had. A range of pancakes, porridge, eggs, you name it. Stewart could teach Customer Service.... More

My husband and I along with 2 of our friends visited Perth on the 21st and had a 2 nights stay at Rowanlea. On our arrival we all were welcomed by a heart warming smile by Stewart who was our host all throughout the stay. He happily accommodated us 2 hrs before the standard check in time. A modest looking... More

Our party of eight stayed here on the start of our coast-to-coast walk across Scotland. The property is well located about 10 minutes walk from town and the railway station. The rooms are intimate and beautifully presented. Our host Stuart was friendly but not intrusive, and nothing at all was a problem. It was almost like staying at a friend's... More

The house is located on the edge of Perth within reasonable walking distance of the bus and train depots. It is clean, tidy, and well appointed. Stuart, the host, is most accommodating, helping with luggage, directions, good recommendations for restaurants, etc. We arrived after a long drive from the west coast, and his assistance and good cheer were a tonic...
