Superb B & B in a great location. Free parking on the road outside the door, which was ideal for a city break. Very friendly owner and breakfast superb. Would definatley stay again. Read more
Gareth could not have been more pleasant or helpful, he helped us with our luggage, gave us a welcoming coffee and shortbread and described all the tourist opportunities for our brief stay.
When we were leaving he again helped us with our luggage and sent us on our merry way.....as we left for the tour of the Brittania. Read more
I had a lovely, spacious room in the dungeon (=basement), as Gareth put it, joking as always. My bed was just perfect, not to soft, not too hard, just good for good dreams.
Everybody at Fraoch House are friendly, but Gareth is really special, so friendly and helpful. You do not have to feel lonely even if you come alone, he has always time for a lovely chat, many chats if you want to. It would be difficult to find a happier or more positive person.
Superb breakfast,enough also for a big Read more

We (two friends from the Netherlands) stayed in Froach house for four nights to visit the city. We had a great time: the city is wonderful, and we felt right at home in Fraoch house. We had a beautiful and warm room, comfortable bed, good shower (hot & lots of water), with everything we needed, like a tv and a kettle to make tea, fresh water, soap, shampoo etc. Gareth is an extremely good and friendly host, and did everything to make our stay excellent.

I was there one night for business and wanted a stylish, homely, affordable place to stay (which isn't easily found in Edinburgh, in my experience). I am so pleased that I took a chance on Fraoch House. It's a bit further from the centre than I usually stay, but the quality of the rooms, the quality of the breakfast, and the friendliness of the owner more than made up for that. I would definitely stay there again. Read more

Gareth was an ideal host. When we first arrived he greeted us and gave the perfect overview for touring the city and getting around. Our next two days of sightseeing were super easy, thanks to him. The rooms were lovely and very well kept. This was one of the most comfortable places we stayed. Our room looked out over the road, which was lovely and not very noisy, even with the bus.

From the time that we arrived Gareth was extremely helpful (helping us get parked, get our luggage in and get directions to gas and car return quickly) and friendly.

Gareth gave us great info about the city and restaurant suggestions.
Breakfasts were delicious and substantial.

Garrent was extremely helpful and full of information. The room was beautiful, large, with very comfortable beds and many nice decorative touches. Impeccably clean throughout.

It is about a 15-20" walk from the train and bus stations and center of town which we found to be an easy distance; in fact we liked getting out of the 'tourist zone' a bit. Read more

I can not possibly find fault with any aspect of our visit.

What a great place to stay, Gareth could not be more accommodating. We loved every
bit of the stay, from the large, comfy room to the wonderful breakfast each morning.

Fraoch house was the best b&b we have stayed in and our experience was made even better by some great recommendations by the owner, Gareth. Gareth was a superb host and made you feel as if you were staying at a house rather than a hotel. The bottle of prosecco for New Year's Eve and two cans of irn bru for the morning were also great additions to our first night. We will definitely be making a return trip! Read more

Warm welcome from Gareth after a long journey. Shown to rooms which were large and comfy. Bit awkward in one room as wardrobe door opened out to side of bed which was huge and solid wood, and I kept banging my thigh on it to try to avoid walking into wardrobe door! The other room was more spaciously set out with no hindrances.Bedrooms were clean but bathrooms could have
been cleaner, built up dust around skirting and shower,and mildew between tiles in shower. Overall very nice and would go bac Read more

My wife and I were on a 3 week trip in Great Britain that took us from London, up through Scotland, and down through Ireland. We stayed in a total of 7 hotels and 9 bed and breakfasts during our trip. Communication was excellent with every place we stayed.

There was a very limited amount of common area but there was a sitting area in our room that made up for it. Read more

Garath was great, very prompt in responding to our booking and very friendly when we arrived. The rooms were lovely - modern and clean, and very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent with a full range of continental breakfast items as well as a great choice of hot breakfasts as well.

As soon as me and my partner arrived, we were greeted warmly by the staff who offered us tea and biscuits on entry. We sat down and were made to feel comfortable from the start, they seemed genuine in their attempts to make sure we had the best time for ourselves.

I would definitely recommend to anyone!! Read more
Fraoch House is lovely and very cosy. The room was beautiful and nicely decorated. Bathroom facilities were very good, with lovely toiletries.

The breakfast was generous and filling, with choices from the side table (cereals, toast, fruit etc) as well as a cooked! Thank you Gareth for a fab stay! Read more
Overall fraoch house is well situated within easy reach of the city centre a short 15 minute walk. The ocean terminal is about 25 minute walk. There is a bus stop just outside which will take you to either of these. The staff where very welcoming on arrival. As with most b&bs people read reviews and Fraoch house had very good reviews, overall 5 stars. I could see nothing special about this b&b. It is just an adequate place to stay for a night or a few days and nothing more. Over rated. Read more

Fraoch House is possibly the best b&b we've stayed in. Lovely room,great position,superb breakfast. You don't need tourist information when your host is Gareth. Read more

Etremely friendly and tidy. Very quiet location - not disturbed at all at night by traffic. Breakfast was really good and set us up for the day. Read more
Our stay at Fraoch was just as we'd hoped. They were even worried that we were a few minutes late of our predicted arrival time, even though we'd driven from Devon. Initial welcome was fantastic, by presumably Gareth's wife adn small son, and Gareth could not have been more helpful and friendly every morning at breakfast Read more
Very helpful staff giving info on where/when breakfast was served, what was on in the city atm, paying attention to our arrival time to advise on what would be best to see with the remainder of our day.
The room was beautifully decorated, had the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in, shower great & always had hot water.
So much choice at breakfast, fruit/yogart/cerial/toast/crumpets/muffins/cooked breakfast. All tasty & plentiful.
Great location, just a 5min bus journey from city centre. Read more

it was the best guest house i have ever stayed in better than some hotel's. all staff are very friendly gareth especially they couldnt do enougth for you Read more
Final two nights of a hectic one week tour. Hotel was best of the lot although a couple of points stopped it being excellent. Shower pressure not great and loose drawer front on wardrobe - just a niggly point really - didn't spoil my stay. The location, on the top floor (in the roof) wasn't ideal - but I suppose someone has to be there. Hosts great, location good, breakfast good - would recommend and would stay again if coming to Edinburgh. Read more
It was a very comfortable break, Gareth was extremely friendly and helpful. The room was very comfortable, especially the bed, everything we needed was included Read more

We stayed at the Fraoch House for a couple nights to visit Edinburgh prior to going to get married in Scotland! Straight from the beginning, we were welcomed by Garrett... The super friendly and helpful owner of the B & B. He took our luggage even though our room wasn't ready (we were very early!)& gave us great recommendations of things to do and places to eat. We tried a few and they were fantastic!! The room was beautiful, fully equipped and comfortable! Breakfast was fresh & delicious! Read more
I was only able to stay one night. It is a great location for visiting Edinburgh. I was greeted warmly, room was very comfortable, bathroom lovely, very helpful so I was able to quickly get cash and get a great dinner. And had a lovely smoked salmon breakfast! What amazed me the most is that I thought I was the only one there because I never heard anyone else...but when I went to breakfast, I saw many others. Very private rooms! Read more
Rien à dire si ce n'est que vous pouvez vous y rendre les yeux fermés Read more
We had a wonderful stay at Fraoch House. The welcome was exceptionally friendly and included tea, biscuits and a great overview of the local area.
Each day's breakfast was very tasty with plenty of variety. Read more
Gareth is a great host, very knowledgable and friendly. About 10 minutes walk to town (uphill, usually into the wind:-) ).
The only problem was the bathroom in my room (#7). Avoid this at all costs. The room has been set up for disabled guests and as such when you shower water goes everywhere (no shower curtain) and you need to mop up the water.
All that said, I would stay there again but not in room 7. Read more
Wanted somewhere fairly central to stay on a long weekend to Edinburgh. On reading other reviews we chose here and are so glad we did. Gareth was wonderful making us totally welcome with tea/biscuits on arrival. Breakfasts set you up for the day no need for lunch! On a direct bus route to the centre made it a perfect choice and nothing was too much trouble. Thanks so much. Looking forward to a return visit. Read more

Two nights while exploring Edinburgh at end of a multi-city/town trip. Read more
Short stay to explore the city. It's an easy 10 minutes walk from the Froach house into the City center and especially Calton Hill with great views over the town is easy to reach by foot. If you arrive with luggage it's better to take the bus 11 from Princes street, with 30kilo luggage even 10 minutes can be very, very long ;-) Read more
Very pleasant and comfortable. Read more
Fabulous loads to do in and about. Very comfortable bed and lovely biscuits and tea making facilities, with sweets and lollies for me and my daughter :-) Read more

We had an exceedingly enjoyable stay in Froach House, kicked off with a much needed cuppa after we stumbled in out of the wind and rain.

Fraoch House is a wonderful place to stay in Edinburgh. From the very warm welcome when you arrive, to the hearty tasty breakfast in the morning. The room was lovely, warmly decorated, very comfortable bed, clean and nice and quiet. The location is great, 10 min bus ride to the city centre, with bars/restaurants only a short walk away. We will definitely be recommended this place for our friends to stay. Read more

A very concentrated short break of two nights + a full day sightseeing and two part days.
Unfortunately, our break coincided with the Pope's visit (which we did not know when arranging the holiday) which resulted in certain tourist facilities being cancelled (eg tourist buses) Read more
Our stay was absolutely wonderful. Sadly i was ill whilst on holiday and therefore was not able to enjoy Edinburgh but fraoch house was amazingly comfortable and made being ill bearable. Read more
Friendly welcome. Room with more then enough space and with all facilities that you need to complete the stay. Good breakfast with hot meals (freshly cooked and not as a buffet), fresh fruit, good coffee. So nothing to complain. Read more
My mum and I stayed in the twin room. This was a treat for her 70th birthday and Gareth couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. He allowed us to leave our bags when we first arrived from the sleeper train and even offered us breakfast. At the end of our stay our train didn't leave until 11pm, so Gareth allowed us to leave the bags there and collect later. The breakfast was lovely and the staff very helpful. Our shower wasn't working but Gareth sorted it out very quickly. Read more
Excellent service from being met with coffee, recomendations on where to eat, to having breakfast served before normal start time (breakfast was superb-was late in the day before i thought about eating again!) Read more

I stayed for two nights. I was greeted warmly as soon as I arrived. It was my first few days of my holiday and I try to stay in a place that makes it easy for me to relax, see some sights, and get adjusted to the time change. Fraoch House was perfect, very comfortable. It is a short walk for places to eat and I was able to walk to all of the places I wanted to see during my short stay in Edinburgh. Heather, the host while I was there, was a joy to talk to and helpful in suggesting restaurants. Read more

The breakfast was amazing and really set us up for a day of sightseeing.
Our room had DVD player and downstairs is a DVD library for you to grab a film whenever you like! There is a laptop in lobby for free internet use as well.
The location is good because it is a short bus ride up Leith Walk to the town centre. Read more

This is our third stay at Fraoch House, it's very clean, the beds are comfortable, hospitality tray in the bedroom replenished every day, toiletries in the bathroom, the breakfast is varied and plentiful, Gareth is always very helpful. Froach House is also exactly as presented on the Internet, this in our experience is not always the case. Read more
My mother and I stayed at Fraoch House from February 22 till 26.
In one word, the place is PERFECT. Of course Edinburgh is beautiful and five days certainly was not enough to enjoy everything it has to offer. But I mostly credit our choice of hotel for the wonderful time we had. Despite the weather, which with the exception of one day was mostly wet, we had the warmest of experiences staying at Fraoch House. The atmosphere, the owners’ hospitality (always taking the time to help, give advice a Read more
We got a comfortable room, good facilities including use of internet and DVD library. The main reason we came back a second time is that Fraoch House do a great breakfast for vegetarians. Walking into the city centre took us about 15 minutes so it was a good base for us to set out from, on a quiet street. Read more
Beautiful rooms and en suite, staff attentive but you have to seek them out to find out information. That was the only negative. Every thing else was wonderful, it was very quiet and peaceful. I will stay again! Read more
We wanted to get acquinted with Scotland as we have been charmed by several visits to Ireland. Even this short break gave us the envie to return whenever possible. Read more
Warm, beautifully decorated, clean, comfortable and welcoming with good food. Read more
Could not fault Froach House. Stayed at the Dakota (5* hotel) for the 2 nights previous and can honestly say Froach House is far superior. The rooms are decorated to very high standard with contemporary furnishings, the breakfast really is the best in Scotland - wonderful porridge with fresh berries, nuts and seeds and a truly outstanding "full Scottish". My husband raved over the DVD collection which reflected his own personal and extensive taste. Highly highly recommended. I will be back Read more
The B&B was lovely and had been decorated to a high standard, the service was lovely as was the breakfast. We would definately go again and stay in the same B&B and would recommend to others. Was in a great location too, right by bars, restaurants and 10 mins walk from the centre. Read more

The staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful during my entire stay. The single room was small but quite satisfactory, the private bathroom was across the hall, which was perhaps not ideal. However, this minor inconvenience was more than compensated for by the room rate. The whole house was clean and in excellent condition. The breakfasts were excellent and there was a good selection of fresh fruits on offer. The bathroom was well stocked with creams, shampoos etc. Read more
This is a good bed and breakfast with great access to the City Centre which is within walking distance. We parked in front of the house which was a bonus. Our room was large and well furnished in a modern style. Breakfast was good. The host was lovely, very friendly and helped us to see as much of the city as we could in a limited amount of time. 10 out of 10 for friendliness. Read more
Although this property is a short walk from the centre it was warm and inviting to come home to Gareth was an excellent host, very accommodating to our needs.
