Extremely helpful and attentive staff. Room was very lovely, comfortable bed, wifi works great, cleanliness. Breakfast was great.
Nothing in particular.
Great location within walking distance of all facilities in Balloch. The owners were extremely friendly and obliging and even did some much needed washing for us for a small fee which saved us a lot of time. The room was spotless and breakfast excellent.
The welcome at Gowanlea was first class. It is very comfortable and within easy walking distance of Loch Lomond,the station and lots of eating places. Andrea provided lots of advice on local attractions and amenities. The breakfast was excellent. All in all it was a very enjoyable stay.
Breakfast was excellent, staff were very helpful and friendly. Overall superb guest house.
Great room and breakfast. Andrea was fantastic. We had a great stay
breakfast choices were wonderful. a very warm welcome was constant throughout.the bed was very comfy.
very tiny bathroom,however did the job and was spotless
Friendly welcome Coffee & biscuits on arrival Knowledgeable about local area - I took advice on where to eat, & drink and also where to go for an evening stroll
Check-in time of by 18:00 potentially limiting if needing to arrive later; however this is a guesthouse and not a hotel so to be expected. I'm sure the owners can be accommodating where possible.
Friendliness of the Owners,not seemed to be of any trouble,always willing to find out if you were experiencing any difficulties
breakfast location is close to Loch Lomond
It is a beautiful village and the staffs were very friendly. The decorations in the house were good.
The shower system in the family room seems not good with a loud sound.
Room was obviously recently updated and very nicely decorated and very comfortable
Clean, quite, spacious Great bathroom Well equiped Parking Excellent breakfast, I recommend the smoked fish
Nice host but very busy, we could not really take the time to exchange about the sightseeings
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
We chose Gowanlea for its location, about an hour from the Troon ferry and on our way to the Isle of Skye. In many years of traveling in Britain and Ireland, we have stayed in many B&Bs and guest houses. Gowanlea would rank in our top 5 of all time. Our room was spacious, attractive, and comfortable with a large bathroom and amenities. We were welcomed warmly then sent off quickly to a nearby restaurant since the kitchen was about to close for the night. The next morning's breakfast was delicious. The guest house is at the south end of Loch Lomond and very convenient for touring,
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
