cleanliness helpful owner great breakfast good lounge for residents
There was lots to like, beginning with the very happy, friendly welcome by our host Andrea. The room was lovely, clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was a great start to the day. Balloch is a lovely town to visit with a delightful walk behind the castle and along the Loch to the Marina.
We could only stay one night.
Location , staff , breakfast amazing !
Andrea and John is very approachable and helpful. Andrea brought a cup of milk for my son which is very kind of her.
I knocked my head against the table where the kettle is placed. The front room was noisy with cars.
Convenience to Balloch and lake
Bathroom facility was too small
Andrea was friendly and helpful. Perfect location for visiting the Loch Lomond area. the stay was short, but very pleasant one. would highly recommend to all.
I recommend this B&B, nice place to stay, the owner is very attentive and nice breakfast!
Exceeded expectations. Value for money, one of the best breakfasts I've had my entire life, quiet and spotless room, slept like babies. Would recommend, would definitely stay again.
Everything was fine. Tea and biscuits on arrival which was very welcome. Good advice on where to eat etc. Excellent breakfast and plenty, and even made us a flask of coffee for our onward journey. Will use again when in the area
A wonderful place to stay. Breakfast was sensational. Thank you
Clean and comfortable room. Excellent breakfast. Helpful host.
Excellent accommodation with friendly staff
We were very comfortable at the Gowanlea. The room was spotless and the beds comfortable. Our room was at the back of the property and very quiet. There was a very good selection to choose from for breakfast which you chose the night before. John was very helpful and friendly.
Excellent for our one night stopover at Loch Lomond. Very friendly and helpful owner plus excellent location.
Nice and comfy rooms, great breakfast
greeted with a very warm welcome, and tea and biscuits were given on arrival. Beautiful en suite room, everything spotless. Breakfast excellent, plenty of choices. We wish all guesthouses were like Gowanlea. A credit to Scotland. Thank you
There was nothing at all to dislike
The location was good. The room was comfortable and there was a good variety for breakfast. Wifi worked well and was free. Parking available on site.
There were a few lights not working in the bathroom and the fan didn't seem to be working.
Lovely hostess made us a cup of tea in the lounge as soon as we arrived. We had lovely room and it was very quiet. We will book to stay here again.

The breakfast was amazing, the owners were very welcoming and helpful. Convenient location and easy to find.

Really liked the set-up for breakfast. Wide selection to choose from and really well cooked.
excellent breakfast. House owner very helpful and kind.
Room is small and at the attic of the house. wifi unstable (probably because we are on the top floor of the house weak signal)
Everything was good. Great location within walking distance of activities, pubs, restaurants etc.
this is a great place to stay. beautiful and large room, very good breakfast, friendly and helpful staff. the location is also perfect, just a couple of minutes walking from the lake and pubs.
