This hotel is perfect, the room was at a high standard and the food offered was better than expected. It is perfectly suited for both walkers as well as holiday makers. We had an amazing view of the loch from our room and the weather was surprisingly beautiful. The staff were lovely and checked us in very quickly. We plan... More

After you have managed to climb your way to the hotel it is a real treat. The staff are amazing & nothing is too much trouble. We took a rest day from the West Highland way to climb Ben Lomond. Bit of a gamble as you are at the mercy of the weather but worth it. Will certainly return.

This is really the only option in the area if you are walking the West Highland Way and following the typical itinerary, fortunately it is a pleasant place. The staff were attentive and the room I stayed in large and clean. The bathroom was updated and quite nice. I didn't have a view to speak of, but having just come... More

While walking the West Highland Way we stayed for 1 night at Rowardennan Hotel. On average friendly staff, very nice interior, room clean with beautiful view, bathroom of sufficient size, buffet breakfast which left nothing to ask for. Dinner was taken in the pub connected to the hotel: meals of good size and price. Bottom line: we enjoyed and could... More

A very average hotel but overpriced but with no competition in the area can probably charge what they like. Room very small but nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was buffet style from 7-9 a bit early for Sunday mornings but catering mainly for people walking the west highland way. Dinner was great, plain fare and well cooked = on... More

Rowardennan itself is tiny and there are no options other than this if you want a hotel. We stayed here on a West Highland Way walk. The hotel was clean and comfortable, but very loud the night we stayed as there was an event in the Bothy connected to the hotel. We may have been the only room affected but... More

This hotel is at the end of the line, as roads go, on the east of Loch Lomond. It mostly caters to travellers on the West Highland Way or, in our case, walkers intent on climbing Ben Lomond. It is a hotel with a joining pub which serves reasonable food in good quantity – essential for hungry outdoors types. We... More

Location & views wonderful. Room comfortable & clean. Staff friendly and service good. Food good. All very acceptable, but not spectacular. WiFi restricted to bar. Prices are for a hotel offering much greater services/food - this is as a result of this being the only accommodation in the area of WHW other than camping. Over - pricing is not justified.

We stayed in the bunk house . It was small and compact . Each item hired had a cost . So 1 nights stay cost 27 pounds . The bar and food were the greatest disappointment . Food was ordered and arrived within 4 minutes . My pasta dish was hot on top. The bottom layer was cold and had... More
