“Nice place to stop, does the job!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

We stopped here after a decent day of walking, and found it to be just what we needed. The rooms were done to a modern spec, and the facilities in the rooms were great. The communal areas look like they could do with a refurbishment, but it's by no means dull or grotty.

The bar is decent enough, with friendly service, and food is also good. It has wifi, which is a rarity on the West Highland Way, and overall it's a good place to stay for walkers needing a bit of rest.

Day Two of the West Highland Way found me lodging here and it was great! They even had a "Drying Room" for my sodden clothing. My room had a bathroom in a separate room, but it was designated for my use only. That was fine. The bar had a good menu and the breakfast the next day was excellent!

In short, I arrived at 8.30pm on sunday 5th august, after a long days walk from milngavie. No-one on reception despite shouting in the door for 10mins, no answer on phone despite 5 calls, therefore no way of booking in. I decided to walk on to another accommodation as I needed sleep. I called the hotel a few days later to obtain a refund but despite acknowledging my booking was advised that this wasn't going to happen!!!!! If I pay for a product and the seller does not provide the goods, then I am entitled to a refund. Cheats

Only stayed there for one night but due to the weather we spent the full 24 hours in the hotel. Nice room, very good bar,very friendly staff decent food for the money and a good breakfast, couldn't ask for much more really.

A wonderful welcome to a beautiful hotel in a wonderful setting on the banks of Loch Lomond. What a great idea for a wedding - a marquee in the grounds of the Rowardennan Hotel with the celebrations going on to three in the morning – everyone had a great time. We made a long weekend of the wedding celebrations.

On arrival we were greeted with a smiling face at reception – shown to a large well fitted out bedroom and ensuite - it was ideal. The staff are very welcoming from the barman to breakfast and restaurant staff – they could not have been more helpful and all worked hard to make our stay enjoyable and worthwhile.

The food was exceptional and very well presented making you very proud of our Scottish heritage. The Italian guests were well looked after and they had a wonderful time making their long journey well worthwhile. We will be back and will try out the beautiful chalets over looking Loch Lomond.

Absolutely loved everything about our stay at Rowandennan Hotel. The room was gorgeous, the staff were brilliant and the location was breathtaking. Having read some of the reviews on Tripadviser about this hotel I was a bit worried about what our stay would be like. I can honestly say that I cannot fault this hotel in any way and wonder what on earth people who have written negative reviews are talking about? The Rowndennan Hotel is beautifully decorated, extremely comfortable and I feel great value for money. I would definately reccomend it to anyone wanting to visit this amazing part of the world!
