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

It may rain a lot in Edinburgh but it's always sunny at Fraoch House. That may be cheesy but it's no less true. Garreth, the owner, is the sunniest person alive. When he flings the door open to greet you upon arrival you just feel instantly so welcome. The place is clean, the breakfast varied and formidible, and it's nice... More

Really accommodating and helpful host and friendly staff. Rooms were very comfortable, spacious and modern. No car park but plenty of street parking available. Bus stop right out front which runs into town regularly. Delicious breakfast.

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
