“Five star service at three star prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

We were there last night to meet a group of hotelier friends. Could not fault anything from the warm welcome to our departure,
Brilliant location and what a bonus to have full leisure facilities. Would certainly go again!

Steve. Thanks for taking the time to post such an encouraging review. I am pleased to hear that your long journey from Turkey to have dinner at The Lomond Hills Hotel was so worth it! I know from some of your friends who attended that a great time was had by all.
I will pass on your review to the staff who look after your party.
We hope to see you back in Scoptland again soon. Thanks again.
Ronnie.

I work and stay at hotels all around the UK on a weekly basis and have been staying at the Lomond Hills Hotel for the last 4 weeks and can easily say it is one of the best run hotels I have aquainted. The rooms are lovely and clean, bedding and towels changed everyday.

The food in the restaurant is second to none with a brilliant variety of meals, if you fancy something that isn't on the menu the chef will go out of his way to prepare what you want.

I would just like to finish this review with this.....the proprietor Ronnie is one of the nicest people I have ever met and will bend over backwards to ensure your stay at the Lomond Hills Hotel is an enjoyable one. You will not be disappointed!!!

At The Lomond Hills Hotel we welcome the thoughts and opinions of all of our many visitors so thank you for yours.
I have investigated your comments and would now like to respond.
It is interesting that fourteen of our last fifteen reviews on Tripadvisor have rated us five out of five but you gave us one out of five....something out of the ordinary and of great concern to me as the powner of the hotel.
You rated us one for location despite being situated in a beautiful Fife village and abviously after you had researched the area as you mention previous reviews. a bit odd to me. Further, you rated sleep quality one star despite not sleeping in the hotel. Odd again!
You arrived during a rainstorm and walked through our extremely busy lounge are (not the bar). Is it possible the "damp smelling" area was perhaps wet people and clothing? I have owned the hotel for nine years and have never heard reports of damp smells previously.
the rating you gave us for value was one out of five. I cannot understand why, after researching your stay, a booking was made for a hotel you did not thinks was good value.
The bedroom you were allocated has recently been upgraded with new double glazed windows, new bed and bedroom furniture, new carpet and new bathroom. When a bedroom is occupied, the shower curtain is machine washed and replaced with a clean one. I could find no trace of mould anywhere in the room.
There was slight damage to the interior bedroom door as you mentioned, which happened two days before your visit. This has now been repaired.
As you stated, as your booking was made through a third party and not cancelled as per their terms and conditions, we were within our rights to debit your card for the value of one night's stay but decided, as a gesture of goodwill, not to do so.

As a coincidence, VISIT SCOTLAND INSPECTORS visited my hotel a few days after your experience. During their visit I showed them your review and the room concerned.
Their Regional Director, Shona Anderson gave me permission to use her name to state in this response that she found your review difficult to understand and was very enthusiastic about the hotel and in awarding us extremely high marks after her visit.

I also note that you left The Lomond Hills Hotel for At Andrews where you felt let down by a Five Staer Hotel, according to your next review.
I hope my response assures you that your experience here was very out of the ordinary and not what our guests normally have .
Ronnie.

Myself and clients have stayed at the Lomond Hills and have done for a number of years and have received the very best of attention at all times ,nothing is to much trouble the staff and the owners are second to none, very friendly and professional. They try and cater for all your needs and always succeed.The food is excellent for the price the beers and wines are as good as any hotels I have visited in Scotland. The rooms are well equipped with all the usual and a few more. There is a superb well equipped leisure centre for members and hotel guests.
The old coaching inn is 18th century with a few creaks and groans which add to warm and friendly attention you receive from everybody at The Lomond Hills, Freuchie, Scotland

Room Tip: I have stayed in most and found them all to be adequate for my needs and slept well in them all

We booked at the last minute as we very sadly had to attend a great friend's funeral. We travelled as a family of 5 and staying at the Lomond Hills was first class. The facilities - all of us accommodated in an excellent family room and the swimming pool were just what we needed and the food and service excellent. All the staff were lovely and Ronnie and Faye have created a first class establishment. We hope to return in happier personal circumstances. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Room 20 - for 2 adults and 3 children - excellent

The Lomond HIlls was such a surprise package. We arrived late and without a reservation, simply looking for a clean, comfortable hotel room for one night. We found a lovely hotel with a wonderful atmosphere and great facilities. The room was spacious, clean and equipped with every convenience. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. All of this topped off by a charming host, Ronnie, and lovely, helpful front desk staff. What more could you want?
