I would highly recommend this B&B! Gareth is the best host. He remembers just about everything you tell him and his service is beyond compare. Just a lovely person and place to stay with excellent breakfasts and home made breads and jams. The Plum Jam was yummy! I had a very early flight and he left breakfast for me to... More

Ensuite with very good power shower, large mirror over built in sink, great for two ladies sharing when applying the makeup for a night out. Mini kettle for numerous cups of tea and coffee. Bottled water... More

Came back to this B&B when we were visiting for the fringe last month as we'd stayed here before and loved it so much. Everything was as great as last time, poached eggs still as brilliantly cooked as before, plus a great range of breakfast items.

Have just spent 2 nights here and would highly recommend Fraoch House. The location was spot on for ease of access to the city and the host Gareth was so welcoming. He gave us some great tips and local information and the breakfasts were amazing. The room was spacious, beautifully decorated and very clean. We will certainly be visiting again!

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.
