Fraoch House is truly an amazing B&B and the best one we ever stayed! Beautiful rooms, excellent breakfast, a great location and eye for details! Gareth, the owner, is very friendly and helpful, knows all the 'right' places and made us feel really at home. Fraoch House is a once in a lifetime experience! Annemarie and Marc, Netherlands

On this trip to England, Scotland, and Amsterdam, we committed to avoiding chain hotels, and chose only to visit accommodations that offered a personal touch. At Fraoch House, we were pleased in every way. First and foremost, Gareth accommodated my request to reduce my stay from 3 to 2 nights without penalty, something he certainly did not need to do,...

Absolutely brilliant little B+B. We stayed for 2 nights, to sight see Edinburgh, it's a really good location, ten minutes walk to the city or you can grab a bus outside. Room was large, warm, clean and comfortable. It has everything you need. Lovely greeting from owner and staff. And breakfast was gorgeous, and you have a huge choice. Would... More

Gareth was the perfect host who accommodated our change of plans with no trouble. Very friendly and full of local knowledge, he was always on hand to help with our sight seeing questions. We were made to feel very welcome and it had a homely feel that hotels just cant offer. On our last day after checkout he let us... More

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
