What a lucky find Fraoch House was. With it's knowledgeable and friendly host, the lovely garden and entrance, it was a winner before we even saw our gorgeous room. Looking forward to coming back next year!

Excellent room, great choices at breakfast including veggie options and a very friendly and informative host - nothing too much trouble and in an ideal location. Also on the number 11 bus route to Princes Street - very regular and cheap but also walkable into the centre.

Many thanks to our host extraordinaire Gareth. Excellent breakfasts, lovely room (fantastic shower), great advice, and that sense of humour! I am very honoured to have been first to use the new jar of Vegemite!! Thanks again Gareth. Lorraine and David. Perth, Australia. Ps, what colour did you choose for the front door?

This B&B has great access to public transportation (just across the street from the B&B) that will take you into the heart of Edinburgh. The host, Gareth, is delightful and will help you plan out and navigate the big city sights of Edinburgh. The breakfasts were delicious and the rooms were very comfortable.

Very good stay, was upgraded to larger room and breakfast was excellent. Would recommend for short stay, reasonably close to town centre although be sure to cross to opposite side of the road to the guesthouse to get on the bus into city centre

We stayed here for two nights in late July. Gareth was an excellent host! He has a great sense of humor and provided us with lots of useful information about touring in Edinburgh. We stayed at three B&B's during our two week trip to the UK, and of the three, this was the only place at which the owner was... More

We have stayed in larger rooms (ours was on the top floor), but the decor was interesting and fun, the bathroom beautiful with excellent light and our host could not have been more pleasant and entertaining. It made our trip to Edinburgh very special.

First of all Gareth is very friendly, helpful, has very good knowledge about the local, transports, attractions and restaurants. The house's location is very good, jump on the bus 11 which stop in front of the house and you are in town centre just a few minutes. We were offered tea and shortbread on our arrival which made us feel... More
