This was the perfect base for exploring Edinburgh! Many thanks to the host Gareth for such a warm welcome and for thinking of all of the little details that made my four-night stay so special. The room was comfortable, quiet, and stocked with a nice tray of teas and snacks. Breakfast was delicious and generous; it included both a made-to-order... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Fraoch house B&B recently. Gareth, the owner, is a jovial and very helpful person - both when you are there and through e-mails. The breakfast was great - lot's to choose from and they are willing to vary what they serve. We particularly liked the salmon on bagels and the english breakfast. The breakfast... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely bed and breakfast. Lovely breakfast with plenty of choice, cooked and continental, lovely fresh fruit. The host Gareth was lovely extremely friendly and knew about the local attractions which often is not the case. About mile walk into middle of Edinburgh and mile and a half from ocean terminal for royal yacht... More

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
