What a place We had room 1 over looking Loch Lomond what a wonderful view every morning as we stayed here for 4 nights. It is very remote and about 7 miles up a dead end road. The staff were great and made the holiday. The food was very tasty and the breakfast was first class. It is mainly a... More

The Rowardennan Hotel is exactly what one would expect from a Scottish 3 star hotel that has cornered its local market. The bar is nice enough, the food is fine but not great and the rooms are large and clean, if a little dated. Most of the staff do come across as pretty dissatisfied, apart from the nice South African... More

We stayed here to do some walking in summer 2014 and had a brilliant experience. It was quiet, clean and had brilliant ammenties - great food, great bar and lovely staff and in the most picturesque location with stunning views over the Loch. Would definately stay again.

Arrived tired after a long day walking - the receptionist couldn't find our reservation and suggested we had booked the youth hostel instead to which I was about to have a sense of humour failure - however it turned out the booking was in my sister in laws name even though I had booked it . The room was nice... More

Location is lovely. Room was fine (double with ensuite) although nothing out of the ordinary for a relatively expansive hotel but as it has a monopoly in the area it can charge what it likes. Wi-fi did not work. We agree with earlier posters about the not overly friendly receptionist and we were not made aware we were entitled to... More

The Rowardennan Hotel is an elegant old hotel with a fantastic lake front location. The rooms are large and comfortable however there are no modern convinces like air conditioning or elevators. WIFI is limited to the attached pub only, not in the rooms. It is also very slow so that web browsing is all but impossible. Mobility challenged guests should... More

Whilst walking the West Highland Way we had booked into the Rowardennan Hotel. Unfortunately after a long day we were greeted by a very unfriendly hostile receptionist. We were a very happy group of three ladies but this particular day a little tired, so was not impressed when the receptionist told us to smile after telling us we had to... More

The receptionist at the hotel was very unfriendly so our first impression was not very good. However; our room was clean and spacious and we had an amazing view! We ate in the hotel pub and the wait staff were very nice and the food was great! We were traveling with our dog and she was welcome in the pub.

We were a party of 5 walking the WEST HIGHLAND WAY, we were initially impressed by the bed rooms, we soon discovered it was let down by the little things, the triple room had towels for two, the twin room had only one hand towel. Both rooms had a very poor hospitality tray. The twin room energy saving lighting in... More
