Located very, very close to Edinburgh; the rooms are very comfortable and clean, the breakfast is cooked perfectly to order and Gareth is a witty, informative and incredibly friendly bloke. I would return to Edinburgh just to stay here.

Lets make this short and sweet; if you're staying in Edinburgh, stay here! The staff are exceptionally friendly, the breakfast was first class, the room was beautiful and warm with tea/coffee making facilities provided. If the distance from the city centre is putting you off, dont fret! There is a frequent bus in the street outside and a 2min walk... More

We stayed for a couple of days in October. We were greeted with a warm welcome and a cup of tea. I had asked for a room on the back as I'm a light sleeper and there is a bus route in front of the hotel on saying that I do think I would have been ok as it wasn't... More

My and my partner stayed for a weekend in November and we were very impressed with our stay. Gareth was incredibly welcoming and very accommodating. The room was excellent and very spacious with a lovely, comfortable bed. The breakfast buffet was lovely with a fantastic option of fresh fruits, home-made bread and cereal. The various options for cooked breakfasts were... More

Fraoch House kindly offered to provide us with reasonably priced accommodation at very short notice during the Fringe festival following a booking mix up at another B&B. A warm welcome on arrival from Gareth’s wife who offered us tea and coffee to settle us in after a long drive. Our room was supposedly the smallest in the house but was... More

Stayed here mid November for 3 nights and really enjoyed the warm welcome and hospitality throughout our stay. The room was decent size and nicely decorated, the bathroom in particular was excellent. All your usual facilities and amenities are available within the room. Location was a nice and easy 20 minute walk to the city centre. It is also right... More

Fraoch House is probably one of those guest houses which would give run for the money even to much bigger establishments in Edinburgh and wider across Scotland when it comes to many things! At the time of scribbling this particular review Fraoch House is rated No 16 out of 443 similar establishments in the city of Edinburgh. 607 reviews for... More

Gareth was friendly and welcoming from the start. Provided us with refreshments on arrival and also upgraded our room for free due to a cancellation, thought this was excellent service. Room was cosy and quirky, quiet too. Not too far from town but a good walk to work off the traditional Scottish breakfast I had each morning - which was... More
