Response from Andrea D, Owner at Rowallan House
Responded 13 Jul 2018
Dear Guest We are very sorry that you had such a disappointing stay at Rowallan Guest House. We took over the business on the 12th July 2018, hence the delay in replying to you, and we will be embarking on a gradual renovation of the property. We would like to assure you that we are happy to accommodate business travelers as well as holidaying guests and that we will happily be flexible regarding breakfast. We have also taken on board your other comments and will use them to build our new business. One of the first is that we will be taking card payments as well as cash. Most of all, as the new owners of Rowallan Guest House we will be working very hard to make sure that all our guests will want to return time after time . So I hope that if you visit Newton Stewart again you will consider us. Kind regards Andrea & Nicolas Deschamps

This a reasonable B&B which is clean and has good access to Newton Stewart. I would describe it as 'tired', the decor inside & the garden outside are in need of a tidy up. At £79 for single occupancy it is a bit expensive.
