We stayed for 4 nights in late August (2 couples,2 premier double rooms). It was our second stay, and our friends first. We had room one which overlooks the road and our friends had a baseroom room which was extremely big and surprisingly light. The main reasons we returned were the location and the quality of the welcome. Breakfast is... More

We stayed over the last week of the festival. We had a room we had was very nicely decorated and very clean. As we were on the top floor the room we had was a little small but there was still enough room to be comfortable. The breakfast was delicious with plenty of choice and the ingredients used are clearly... More

Warm welcome and wonderful hosting throughout our stay. Great breakfast with good quality ingredients. Nice clean shower room. Thoughtful extras and nothing was too much trouble. New location for us in Edinburgh with good links via public transport into the city.

My mum and I stayed here for a couple of nights and we had a lovely experience. They were very warm, helpful, and accommodating. The breakfast was incredible and the location is very close to town (with a bus stop across the street). As someone said, they are "the Gold[en] Standard by which ALL B & B's should be measured"...

The room and bath were immaculate, the breakfast options were delicious, and Kat, the manager, was extremely helpful, but the room we had on the top floor was impossibly small. We had booked many months ago because of the Tattoo and The Fringe, so we were somewhat surprised. I would suggest fewer decorative pillows to allow more space to open... More

This is an excellent B&B and fairly priced for Edinburgh during the season. Owner most helpful. Breakfast very good - HUGE portions. #11 Bus right in front. Very convenient to town and the shore. Decent restaurants nearby too.

We were 2 couples during our trip to Edinburgh. Fraoch House and our host Gareth was above our expectations. The rooms were very comfortable and updated. The breakfast was out of this world. The location was also very convenient. It was a nice walk to downtown and major sites. There was even public transit outside the door if needed. Gareth... More

My wife and I spent two weeks in Scotland and Edinburgh was the final stop during our trip. We had read reviews of Fraoch House prior to booking and are happy to say that they didn't mislead us. From the initial warm welcome to our departure, Gareth (the proprietor) was infinitely hospitable and accommodating. The location is convenient to City... More

This was my first time traveling to Edinburgh and to Scotland as a whole. Gareth was so welcoming! My roommate and I arrived early in the morning and were hoping to clean up a bit before our first tour started, so he graciously had our room prepared early for us. The room was really clean, the bathroom was better than... More

Upon our arrival (early so we could drop our luggage and start sightseeing) Garreth greets you with a warm smile and welcome. Sit for a moment and have some tea or coffee and shortbread. Garreth will answer any questions you may have to make the most of your visit. Its a 20 walk to the center of town. I recommend... More
