We had a reservation for June 24 and circumstances on both ends prevented us from meeting Gareth in person. Gereth contacted us on June 23 that there was a problem that had to be repaired that would prevent our stay in our room. Instead of leaving us scrambling for another place (we were flying out that day), he had made... More

Fraoch House was a great find, I'll definitely be staying again. The warm welcome was a real change from the characterless hotels in the centre of Edinburgh, which charge a lot more. It's really handy for the centre of Edinburgh without being right in the middle. The breakfast was great, loads of fresh fruit. Thanks for a great stay.

Just spent 3 nights at Froach House with my wife ( room 5 ). The staff are very welcoming and friendly, nothing is too much trouble for them. A lovely clean room with a comfortable bed. The breakfast menu selection is very good and the food very tasty. I would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone and will certainly be... More

We loved Fraoch House! Gareth was extremely friendly, helpful, and welcoming. The room was spotlessly clean with a spacious bathroom (we were in room 6). Fun decor throughout the whole house. There are lots of options for breakfast, and the food was all delicious. Great location close to town, and there is even a bus stop right across the street... More

We spent three nights at Fraoch House and everything was great starting with our arrival. We arrived from Glen Coe during a busy time of day and couldn't find a place to park, but we just wanted to park, drop our bags and then go return our rental car. Gareth welcomed us warmly, helped us carry our bags in, quickly... More

Just returned from a two night break at this superb residence. We had the basement room which was more like a flat let. Spotlessly clean, lovely decor. Breakfasts to die for, if you stayed here too long they would have to roll you out! Easy for parking in the street. Good location for shopping, restaurants and theatre. Gareth is the... More

You wont find a friendlier host than this. Gareth couldn't do enough for us. Gave us some tea, coffee and biscuits on arrival, and then spent considerable time going annotating our map of the city with some recommendations for bars, restaurants, and sights worth seeing in the city. He also took a genuine interest in how our trip had been... More

A group of friends and I had a wonderful stay in this terrific establishment. The house is very well appointed and has some of those lovely querks we all enjoy. It is clean and obviously cherished by it's owners and operators, who are lovely and engaging hosts. One of the very best we have stayed at and very highly recommended.
