“Fantastic Hotel”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

Just home from a weekend staying 2 nights in the Lomond Hills Hotel and I have to say this hotel was one of the best hotel experiences I have had. The purpose of our visit was to attend a family wedding. The wedding venue was just stunning and all the staff were excellent, they were so friendly and could'nt have been more helpful. The restaurant food was impressive and the wedding meal was absolutely superb. The rooms were very spacious, extremely clean and comfortable. The whole hotel had a wonderful atmosphere to it and the local village is gorgeous, with fantastic views. The children just loved their time in the swimming pool and jaccuzi after Ronnie making sure they were kitted out with swimming gear, as husband forgot to pack ours. All in all a wonderful hotel, loved every minute of my weekend, Thank You to Ronnie and your team for making my Brother and new sister in laws wedding so memorabe :) . Lynne Ogilvie & Family

Hi Lynne and thanks for your fantastic review!!!
I'm delighted to see that you, your family and friends had a great time at the wedding. It is very hard work and takes lots of forward planning by our staff to ensure that such a big day goes without a hitch. We all get a kick out of hearing afterwards that guests (especially the bride and groom) leave content and with happy memories which last a lifetime.
It is easy to look after nice people and that was certainly the case for Marion's and Steven's wedding.
We also like to make sure that children are pampered as this allows the adults to chill out and relax.
We hope to see you all again soon and thanks again for your kind review.
Best wishes.
Ronnie and all the staff at The Lomond Hills Hotel.

As before excellent hotel, good food and very friendly and helpful staff, particularly Tracy in the restaurant. My strange request for cold porridge was no problem for the kitchen - even if they did think it was bit weird!

Hi Kie S. I would like to thank you personally for taking the time to write a review after your recent stay with us at The Lomond Hills Hotel.
I printed a copy for Tracey who was delighted that she had looked after you enough to merit a personal mention and she has asked me to say thanks. Some of our other staff are so jealous I can see our customer care improving no end ha ha!!!
As for your cold porridge, I must admit that after 25 years in the hospitality industry this was the first such request. The customer, as they say, however, is always right.
I am pleased that you enjoyed your time with us and hopefully we will see you again in the future.
Best wishes from Freuchie and thanks again.

I booked Lomondhills for our group of 26 for two nights, without any prior knowledge of the hotel but on the basis on its central location in Fife.
From the outset, Helen and Erica dealt with the booking, and the many changes which inevitably followed, with warmth, friendliness and efficiency. During our stay, none of us was in any way disappointed with our rooms - clean, comfortable, well appointed and well laid out, even mirrors and power sockets in the right places! The hotel's beautiful location also appealed as did its facilities.
The owners, Ronnie and Faye, were very hands-on and helpful, especially when the excellent meals were being served - dietary needs taken care of too - and the (local) staff were also pleasant and efficient.
Nothing was too much trouble and the group, all well-travelled and with a wide experience of hotel accommodation, were impressed with the level of care and attention - "we were looked after really well".

The hotel is a hidden gem, and deserves to be better and more widely known.

It was so good to learn that your group enjoyed their stay with us at The Lomond Hills Hotel. Thanks for posting such a kind review.
Your party were easy to look after as they were all so lovely (unusual for a large group ha ha).
I know through talking to many of them that they enjoyed their visits to St Andrews and Falkland Palace.
I am especially pleased that our wonderful (local) staff looked after you and hope to have the opportunity to do so again in the future.
Best wishes to all and thanks again.

We booked this hotel for a 2 night short break. We were delighted with the results!

From checking-in we received a warm, friendly welcome from all the staff. Our room was comfortable and clean, and the leisure facilities were an added bonus.

We were very much at home relaxing in lounge bar before having an amazing dining experience on both nights. The menu is mouthwatering, and when the food arrives you won't be disappointed. This is extended to breakfast service.

The staff are extremely friendly and we will certainly be returning in the future.

Hi Christopher!
I was very happy to read your great review....thank you so much for posting it.
The fact that you found our fabulous staff so welcoming and helpful is very pleasing to me. I think they are the best assets we have in the hotel. I have given a copy of your review to our kitchen team to show them that their efforts are appreciated and that you enjoyed the food they prepared for you. We try to make our menu varied and appealing, ensuring that our guests have a choice from steaks, fish, chicken and vegetarian options among others.
It's great to know that you plan to come and stay with us again and we all look forward to looking after you.
Best wishes and thanks again.
Ronnie.

My daughter and I travel to watch the British Touring Car event at Knockhill Racing Circuit each year. For several years now we've made the Lomond Hills Hotel the base for our week-end.

Each time we've been given a warm welcome by Ronnie, Faye and all their staff, particularly Erica the Assistant Manager. The food really is of the highest standard and is a highlight of our week-end, and when eaten in the lounge bar with a couple of pints then a wee dram to finish off, it's the perfect end to a long day out.

On this occasion we forgot that they stop serving food quite early on a Sunday evening, however, as we sat at the bar trying to decide what to do, Ronnie appeared unbidden from the kitchen with two rounds of the most succulent roast beef sandwiches either of us have ever tasted. On this occasion I couldn't even buy him a dram to say thank you, as he was barman for the night!

I've read some of the other reviews and must say that if you're expecting a hotel where the room has the standard international layout and you could be anywhere in the world, then Lomond Hills is not the place for you; this is an old inn which is family owned and run and has it's quirks! Yes, there might be wee bits here and there where the decoration or fabrics could be brightened up, but the warmth of the staff more than makes up for any short-comings.

Thank you very much for your lovely review! It is really nice to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us again and we thoroughly appreciate your comments.
It is great to have you stay with us every year, when you're in the area attending the BTC event at Knockhill, and hope you see the improvements we are striving to make in and around the hotel. We're sorry you missed our High Tea on Sunday but I'm more sorry to have personally missed the Roast Beef Sandwiches! I'm sure Ronnie will be sure to have a dram with you on your return next year!
See you soon!
Best Regards,
Erica :-)

We had a lunch in the restaurant midweek at the reasonable price of £7.95 for two courses. There was ample to choose from the daily special menu for this price. The a-la-carte menu is also available should a wider choice be necessary. The dining room is tastefully decorated and quite homely. Our meal portions were quite big and they were well cooked. The dining room was quiet when we were there so there wasn't much atmosphere but it did not detract from the experience of having an enjoyable meal. We will certainly be eating there again in the not so distant future.

Stayed for two nights in late August. The second night was also the reception for the wedding of a friend's daughter. The owner was always around making sure everything was going well. The food at the dinner was excellent, as were the two breakfasts. I particularly appreciated the veggies sausages at breakfast, and also the vegetarian potato/cheese melt they whipped up specially for dinner. The wifi was good, the shower had great pressure and plenty of hot water, and the room had plenty of space and a comfortable bed. About the only thing that I could complain about was that the skylight in the bedroom seemed to be stuck shut.

Room Tip: There are some queen-sized beds and some twin ones, so reserve early to get the queen. Rooms 20-22 a...

Many thanks for your very kind review.
We are all pleased to learn that you enjoyed your trip to Scotland for what really was a great wedding. hopefully you left with some good photos and memories!
I have passed on your comments to our staff who very much appreciate them. I have also taken on board the window which was difficult to open and have now had it repaired. I hope this did not spoil your stay too much.
Best wishes and thanks again.
