Gareth is very friendly and provides helpful advice for places to visit etc. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast is excellent in terms of choice and quality. Very handy location as the bus stops right outside and it is a short trip into the centre. Highly recommended.

I had a fantastic weekend just gone in Edinburgh and mainly that was due to the lovely stay I had at the Fraoch House in Edinburgh just off Leith Walk in Pilrig street. I was greeted in the warmest manor and made totally welcome. The young lady really made me feel at home, she explained everything about the hotel and... More

Was greeted by the owner Gareth upon our arrival and offered something to eat and drink straight away, as well as tons of information and recommendations of things to see and do as we had planned to head straight out. Located in a great location we managed to walk wherever we needed to instead of navigating transport (even though there's... More

Just returned home after a 2 night stay in Fraoch House! What a lovely BnB! Great hosts, in particular a lady called Cat (I believe she was running the place while the owner was away). Rooms are spotless & decorated tastefully. Breakfast was superb and everyone who worked there went the extra mile to make sure we enjoyed our stay.... More

When we were first looking for B&B's in Edinburgh we chose Fraoch House because it was nicely situated in a quite area close to what we wanted to see. We also noted that the price seemed very reasonable and that Garith the owner sounded to good to be true. After spending two nights we are happy to report that all... More

An excellent B and B, welcoming friendly owner, nothing was too much trouble, we had a large very comfortable double en suite room and my son a very pleasant twin with his own bathroom opposite his bedroom door. The breakfast was awesome, with something for everyone from a fry up through to fresh fruit, there was parking outside, we never... More

Having just spent the weekend at Froach House, we must say what a fantastic B&B. Gareth you should quite rightly be very proud of your establishment. Nothing was too much trouble, the accommodation was first class and the breakfast was one of the best that we have ever experienced. A simple thank you just does not seem enough. We would... More

Knew at once we'd hit on the right place as Gareth is a fellow beardie! Lovely large very clean room on the first floor, well furnished and with good en suite. Excellent towels and bedding including pillows (sometimes a weak spot). Super courtesy drinks and toiletries. Bed proved to be slumberous! Gareth is an amusing, helpful and very friendly host....
