Absolutely fantastic ! What can I say ! A lovely warm welcome when shown to our seats , lovely atmosphere and great views of Louden Hill . Food is superb and very reasonably priced . Children are more than welcome . They even do an early morning breakfast which looked great ! Definitely be returning soon.

We stayed at the Loudon Hill Inn while flying at Strathaven balloon festival, the room was well presented to a high standard and comfortable, the staff were very friendly and the food was cooked to perfection by Dan.

Wee bit remote location, so if you expect to enjoy alternatives you need to drive... More

Had started as a nice visit, lovely setting and can't hear the road too much. Short menu, but nice food nonetheless. Breakfast was not included, I thought this was the idea of a BnB. Room was nice enough, except light fittings poorly On, towel rail came off the wall as I pulled the towel off. The Wi-Fi didn't work the... More

Stopped here while visiting relatives. Nice comfortable room. Very friendly and helpful owners. Food top notch. I would advise making contact with the owners if you require an evening meal as restaurant is not always open. Owners kept it open especially for us (thanks). Looking forward to our next visit.

I called the hotel and booked two double rooms, on arrival we were shown to our rooms that on first glance looked nice but on closer inspection showed signs of being... More
