Friendly and warm welcome Made pot of tea with biscuits in residents lounge when you arrived. Cleanliness, lovely room with great en-suite. WiFi access easy with good signal Accepting of well behaved pooch Pub nearby that allowed dogs Fabulous park nearby to walk dog Fantastic choice of breakfast (ordered the night before) - well organised. Fantastic tasting breakfast too Owner very nice, engaging with a fabulous sense of humour too. Thanks for a wonderful stay - we will be back and recommend you highly.
Soundproofing between rooms felt a bit thin and I worried I'd disturb others - but this is a bed and breakfast and the benefits far outweighed this.
Homely and comfortable atmosphere. Lovely breakfast.
Owners are very friendly Room a Little small, but tidy and clean Very good breakfast

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
