Froach House is a nice clean, modern and reasonably priced guest-house. It has been recently refurbished with tasteful neutral decor whilst retaining great period features of the house. The breakfasts are great and Gareth, the host, seems like a really decent bloke.

Reviewed June 20, 2004

We stayed at Fraoch House for a long weekend in May 2004, having chanced upon it in the Yellow Pages and after checking out its website.

Fraoch House is not your normal, run of the mill B&B. There's no chintz in sight and all rooms have digital TV plus tea & coffee making facilities. There's even free internet access in the lobby if you need to check emails etc. Breakfast is great - full Scottish breakfast, cereals, toast, juice etc and even the opportunity for smoked salmon, cream cheese bagels - not your standard B&B breakfast fare!

The owners are a brother and sister team and are very welcoming. They're happy to advise on places to eat and places to go and we were very thankful for their lunchtime recommendation that was only a short walk away.

The rooms are very comfortable and we stayed in a room with an ensuite bathroom which was very stylish.

Fraoch House is a little bit out of the city centre, which means that parking is no problem, and it is only a short 10 - 15 minute walk to Princes Street and an even shorter walk to some fantastic restaurants in the evening.

We'll definitely be going back to Fraoch House next time we stay in Edinburgh.

Room Tip: Ganz oben ist es am ruhigsten, aber man muss 2 Stockwerke hoch ohne Aufzug!
