We stayed at Fraoch House for 3 nights; this was the perfect place for us. The bus stop is right outside (no. 11) to take you into the centre or it’s a stroll up the main road, it took us about 15 minutes to get to Princes Street. We had the room downstairs, the room was a perfect size the... More

We stayed one night in a room on the top floor. The staff was accommodating, the room modest-sized and clean, and breakfast good. Be aware that an "in suite" bathroom is across the hall. John and Ann, Milwaukee, WI

We stayed for 5 nights in August during the city's busiest time and paid around £550 through booking.com. The house is easy to find being right by the number 11 bus stop. This bus runs every 10 minutes or you can walk to the main road and catch any number of buses that take you either to Princes Street or... More

What can i add that has not already been written? Well at first you think maybe a little out of the way from the centre, then you get out of the taxi to see a delightful frontage and a beaming propriotor in the form of Gareth who I latter would call the man with the smile or the oracle being...

So glad we found this fantastic place - such a warm welcome and all the help and advise you could possibly need. Our room was spacious and well furnished. The shower was great and we felt right at home. The property itself is only a short bus ride from Princes Street and Waverley Station, and indeed easily walk-able if you... More

My wife and I were warmly welcomed by Gareth and offered afternoon tea. He even carried our heavy suitcases to the upstairs ensuited room. All staff who served us at breakfast we're were friendly and made us feel very special. Fraoch House is conveniently located and within walking distance to many quality restaurants and CBD. There is also a bus... More

Just returned from a lovely few days in Edinburgh. We would highly recommend Fraoch House to anyone looking to visit this wonderful city. The 20 minute walk to Princes Street is enjoyable and very manageable. Fraoch House has its own Tourist Information Centre in Gareth - he is a mine of information which he is only too happy to share... More

We stayed two nights in the downstairs room which was beautifully furnished, had plenty of room and a spacious bathroom. Gareth was very friendly and helpful with a cup of tea and shortbread on arrival. Car parking was relatively easy on the street outside and a bus stop at the door made for a quick trip to the city centre.... More
