Lomond Hills Hotel
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Freuchie
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Just spent three superb nights at this comfortable and very welcoming hotel in the village of Freuchie. Ronnie, Gillian, David, Erica, and the rest of a very competent and friendly staff could not do more to make your stay pleasant and enjoyable. There is a very relaxed and chilled atmosphere, and my seven year old son loved the pool and spa. We dined in for the three nights and the service matched the quality and value of the food - excellent. Ronnie keeps two real ales on hand pump and they are in tip-top condition. Friendly locals in the bar who helped us plan great outings to St Andrews and the Isle of May.

Will definitely be back, and if you like staying in comfortable and unpretentious hotels run by genuine people who know what they are doing, then you will love the Lomond Hills Hotel.

A friend and I rented a cottage for a few days in march this year and the same time last year about 200 yards away from the lomond hotel and used it to eat and drink and the food is very good the staff are very helpfull and the high tea is good value for money and a good choice.
The owner which I think his name was Ronnie came and chatted to us for a while what a nice chap, we go up for the dog sledding in tentsmuir forest so hope to be back in October or march next year I would recommend this hotel to anyone oh the beer is good and a nice range of whiskys.

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night as our house was being decorated. It is in the little vilage of Fruechie, when we arrived the staff at this hotel were most helpful and very friendly. Nothing was too trouble for them. Ronnie was excellent, a perfect host. We had a meal booked at night and it did not disappoint, the meal was cooked to perfection, one of the best surf and turf I have had for a long time and the staff brilliant. We went into the lounge by the open fire after our meal and had a quiet drink before retiring to our room. The breakfast was as equaly excellent the next morning as they used good local produce.The decor could be a little updated but it did not detract from a lovely little hotel. The hotel has a lovely little swimming pool if you wanted to use that as well.
We went back the next week for a meal and it was excellent again.
I would most definitely go back and stay again.

The lomond hills has it all whether your on business or leisure, a hotel with character and good facilities Having a restaurant that do's excellent food and a good choice it also has very good bar meals .Ronnie keeps a good selection of beers with regular guest ales and an extensive range of whiskys. The swimming pool is a bonus and the breakfasts are great with wide choice of continental and Scottish but the best thing about this hotel is the staff. They are very attentive and very friendly if its not on the menu ask for it and they shall do there best to accommodate .Nothing is too much trouble ,ive been a regular guest there over the last few months and hope to return in the future ,big thanks to all the staff

From beginning to end the staff at this hotel were extremely helpful and very friendly. Nothing was any trouble.
The high tea menu had something for everyone and the timing in between each course was just right. A most enjoyable meal and good value for money. We will defiantly be back!

Very warm welcome, staff couldnt do anymore for me, lovely fresh evening meal cooked to suit my needs. Good pint of Guinness, friendly staff and an array of other guests from all warps of life both on vacation and business, appears to have a good following of regulars from all over the country as well. Clean, warm and comfortable room. Good breakfast which you couldnt ask anymore of and all at a good competitive rate! Fully recommend this place for either business or pleasure. I will be going back!!! Good job Ronnie & Staff - Costa ;-)
