Guest house has 1 room on the ground floor and 5 rooms on the first floor (stairs/no lift). My husband and I chose the "superior double" room with king bed. The larger spaced room was very nice. The room included a flat screen TV, hairdryer and free WiFi. The mattress is firm (OK for sleeping - a bit of a... More

Room was small but cosy, very clean and well maintained. The bathroom is really small, which is clearly a drawback. But overall, it is difficult to find any other problem with this guesthouse. The breakfast is good and location is OK (10 to 15 minutes to reach the center by foot). We would come back.

This guest house is immaculate, with an attentive host who does not intrude. Our room had every comfort and overlooked the pretty garden. The bed linen had been professionally laundered and the vast bed was really comfortable. The breakfast was perfectly cooked, and there was an astonishing variety of fresh fruit, cereals, juice and yoghurt. It was excellent value for... 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.
