Second time myself and my girlfriend have stayed here and the reason for that is its excellent! Gareth is a brilliant host and cooks a great Scottish breakfast and he also cooks anything thats not on the menu...I recommend the bagels! Fraoch house is special to us and we will be back in the summer. The rooms are very clean... More

This was by far the best place I stayed during my 10 day trip in the UK. The owner is a doll, so welcoming and helpful. The breakfast was fantastic with more choices than any other place we stayed. My boyfriend and I arrived early in the day and Garth offered to take our bags and place them in our... More

Kat and Gareth were very welcoming and took the time to tell us about things to see and do around Edinburgh. Breakfast was amazing with plenty of choices. The room was clean and even though my sister and I had the room with a separate bathroom, it was private and we had the key to it. The location was also... More

I've stayed here twice now and can't recommend it highly enough - great location, friendly people and spotless room. Fraoch House is not far from the city centre - 10/15 minutes walking or a short hop on a bus - so it's well placed for everything Edinburgh has to offer Breakfast is excellent - personally I wouldn't stay anywhere else!

Just left after three nights at the Fraoch House in Edinburgh. Can't say enough about our host, Gareth. He greeted us upon arrival and helped to make our stay memorable. The room was clean and updated. The bathroom seemed new. The breakfast was hot and quick. There are many choices for dining within walking distance. Make this your choice in... More

Me and my partner recently had a 2 night stay here and were very pleased with our choice of B&B. Fraoch House is not far from the main sights of Princes Street and the Royal Mile with a number of good restaurants only a few minutes walk away. The bus stop outside is ideal for those that do not want... More

Our group of 6 French and 1 Brit enjoyed a very warm welcome. Mix and match breakfasts, time taken to understand and choose from the menu - nothing was too much trouble. Rooms were lovely and 5% discount for cash much appreciated. French members particularly enjoyed the excellent, hearty breakfasts as it was their first experience of such bounty.... Hope... More

We had such a great stay here. The owner Gareth and all of his team were so friendly and helpful. The rooms are fantastic (especially the double premier ones - like having your own suite). It's an easy bus ride (or 15 minute walk) into the centre - and the bus stop is right outside! We can't imagine you'd find... More

We stayed in Fraoch House for 3 nights and cannot fault it what so ever. Great welcoming where we was told all the best places to go and how to get out and about at ease. Our room was perfect and immaculate, bed was comfortable and there was enough space. It has a welcoming atmosphere with 'eat me' treats left... More

Our room on the first floor was spotless and very comfortable. The host and his staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful. The cooked breakfasts were really excellent and there was a good selection of fresh fruit, homemade bread and a variety of jams etc. The house is perfectly situated as there is a bus stop outside the...
