Fraoch house is absolutely wonderful. Gareth provided a lovely reception when we arrived with T and shortbread in the afternoon and we swapped tips on the festival. The rooms are lovely - fresh and vibrant and the beds, linnens and towels are top quality. I'm quite fussy about beds and pillows and both were really excellent. They have a computer... More

We stayed at Fraoch House for 3 nights in August as part of a three week holiday throughout the UK and Ireland. Fraoch House was, without a doubt, the best of our accommodations, which even included a luxury hotel in Dublin! We stayed in the family room located on the lower floor, room #8, and found it to be exquisitely... More

Upon arriving earlier than expected after travelling fom Ireland we were offered breakfast by Gareth. He showed the same courtesy and attention throughout our stay, nothing was too much trouble. Room was spacious, very clean and comfortable. A large bathroom with an excellent shower and bath with piping hot water at all times. We also had access to the lovely... More

This B&B for the price was excellent.The location is 20mins from Princess street if you are walking,a taxi will cost you £5 or the bus is £1.20. Great breakfast to start you off and a large selection of DVDs to use if you have tired yourself out and fancy a night in.

We were there two nights and everything was wonderful, good room, large and clean bathroom, breakfast superb, very very clean and Gareth is really kind and good cooker (gorgeous scottish breakfast!) Maybe, a little bit far from city centre, but at least we can park the car without problems.

I stayed here for three nights with my husband and our two teenaged sons. The room was large, clean, beautifully decorated, with comfortable beds and a large, modern en suite bathroom. The breakfasts were delicious--the best we had on our trip. Gareth is indeed a wonderful host, managing to run everything efficiently and to be sincerely hospitable. All four of... More

We spent 3 nights at Fraoch during that time Gareth was the perfect host. He was warm, friendly, very helpful with a good sense of humour and a great customer service ethos. The room we had was spacious, light, airy and well appointed with a large bed. The en-suite was modern with a great shower. The choice at breakfast was... More

this was actually the second time we'd stayed at Fraoch house after a scottish friend recommended them. It's an example of how a b and b should be- gorgeously done up, nice squashy beds, lots of facilities like internet in the hallway and a selection of (admittedly cheesy) dvds to watch in our room. You can walk into town in... More
