We had an excellent stay at Fraoch House, We were only there for a very brief one night stop over, but we were made to feel very welcome. Nothing seemed too much bother for Gareth, The room was clean, comfortable and there was a very hearty breakfast. We thought it was well situated, only a 15 minute walk to Princes Street and the Royal mile.
We will be returning to Edinburgh sometime in the near future and we will try to book into Fraoch House again,
It is on a fairly busy road and the bus stops outside the property, Which is ideal if you don't want to walk into or back from town and there is some traffic noise from around 07:00am. This was not a problem for us, but it might be for some people, next time I will ask for a room at the rear of the property.
Well worth the money, We would stay there again

Fraoch house is a lovely bed and breakfast which is only 20 minutes walk from prince's street, the shopping heart of the city. The number 11 bus also runs from the front door to the city centre every ten minutes or so. Staff at Fraoch house are always friendly and are full of humour. Rooms are spotless and quiet which makes them very tranquil places to spend the night. Breakfast is superb and has a good range of options to suit everyone. Couple this with the excellent prices and I couldn't imagine a better place to stay while in Edinburgh!

We had a really nice stay at Fraoch house. We were a group of two couples who had come up to Edinburgh for the weekend for sightseeing and the Christmas markets.

We arrived on a Friday evening and were very welcomed by Andrea. She showed us to our two standard double rooms (Rooms 5 & 6) at the very top of the house. Both were very well decorated, clean and comfortable. Ideal for a weekend stay and a base for seeing the City.

Breakfast was an enjoyable event not only because of the choice and the yummy cooked food but also due to our host Kat. Kat was very welcoming and continued to make sure that we had everything we needed.

On our first morning we had to report a slight issue with the shower. By the time we returned on the evening this was all fixed -no hassle at all.

The reason we chose Fraoch House was due to TripAdvisor reviews and that we would be able to park and still see the city by foot. We weren't disappointed at all. Plenty of on-street parking, restaurants close by to choose from on our first evening and an easy stroll into the heart of the city for sightseeing, shopping and eating over the rest of the weekend. If we return to Edinburgh we will definitely be staying at Fraoch House again.

Stayed here overnight on a visit to the theatre. Very friendly, extremely clean, excellent breakfast.
So good we have booked again for next December on our visit to see Wicked.Hotels in Edinburgh can be a hit or a miss. This was a hit. No hesitation on recommending it.

We have just returned from a short visit to Edinburgh and had a great stay at Fraoch House. The staff were very friendly, the bedroom was very comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. We found the location to be very good as parking was easy to find and it was a nice walk to Princes Street. We would have no hesitation in going back and would recommend this place to family and friends.

We arrived at midnight, no problem getting the keys out of the wall safe, delighted to find flapjacks and brownies waiting in the hall and an Eat Me sign. Gareth the host injects an atmosphere of optimism and warmth and has plenty of time to give advice. He makes a great breakfast too - yes maybe a bit of classic FM would stop the whispering but this is a minor point. Easily walkable from the centre, and plenty of buses too.
