Myself and my girlfriend stayed at Fraoch house at the end of November. We were warmly welcomed by Gareth who provided us with a complimentary pot of tea and Scottish shortbread, which really set the tone for our stay. With their exemplary local knowledge of places to dine, drink and seek entertainment the team at Fraoch house were never too... More

Stayed in Edinburgh just for one night en route to the highlands...so glad we picked this B n B! We were greeted at the door by Gareth and he immediately made us feel at home by bringing a pot of tea and some shortbread offering to help with our bags. There was always some nice tidbits to eat in the... More

This B&B is about 1km from the centre of Edinburgh. So you could walk to the centre or take the bus right in front of the B&B. Gareth helped us and we had a perfect stay. Our room (nr 9) was in the basement at the back. So it was very quiet. The room is very clean and everything you... More

Just an easy mile's walk from the city centre, with many frequent bus services into the city nearby, one stopping just across the road. Despite this, the house is lovely and quiet at night, even with the window open. We picked this B & B based on other reviews of Gareth's breakfast, and were not disappointed; it was both perfectly...

Found Fraoch (means Heather - hence Ling reference in title - try to keep up) House on Trip Advisor and booked with Expedia for one night's business stop over. Gareth runs the place and greeted me with a pot of coffee and delicious shortbread while I filled out the arrival forms. He recommended a couple of restaurants in Leith (see... More

Lovely quiet guest house that is convenient for city centre. Great breakfast and nothing is too much trouble for Gareth who has a genuine interest in making sure his guests are well catered for . Room on first floor at back was very quiet, clean and comfortable. Would definitely recommend

Delighted to have discovered this guest house! We will most definitely recommend it to friends should they ever be visiting Edinburgh..Fraoch House is ideally situated for buses i.e. to Scottish Parliament, Royal Britannia,Princes St. etc, and has free car parking at its door. It is stylishly decorated, warm and comfortable, welcoming and friendly. Thank you to Gareth, who owns this... More

This is a very warm and welcoming B&B. Gareth is a fantastic host and nothing is too much trouble. Our room was lovely and comfortable with a nice ensuite. The location of Fraoch House is perfect for exploring Edinburgh. Buses into the city are only a short walk away. This has been a great stay for us and we will... More

We have just returned from a 2 night stay at the Fraoch House. It was our first time staying at a B&B and we loved it! Gareth welcomed us when we arrived and he was lovely. He gave us a map of Edinburgh and explained everything we needed to know about transport etc. We loved how Gareth has a cabinet... More

What a pleasant experience, never stayed in a B&B always opted for hotels,but this has changed my mind and would recommend Fraoch House for anyone visiting Edinburgh, conviently situated just a 10-15 min walk to the east end of princess street and walking distance to most attractions and shopping on street free parking is great as the cost of parking...
