We had the room downstairs, which is large and very nicely decorated! Breakfast was good, great selection! There is also a pc that can be used... More

The rooms are not too big but very nicely furnished; the bathroom is very nice but the best is the breakfast in the morning: Homemade bread, fresh fruit, yoghurt, Scottish breakfast and and and.... One of the best breakfast we had in Scotland. Gareth was very helpful and giving us sightseeing proposals.

Based on TripAdvisor reviews we booked Fraoch House. Many truly things have already been told. We were given room #8 downstairs, which is a kind of "special suite". Large room, huge bathroom. Bed and pillows were by far very comfy. Also they welcome you with a selection of tea, candies and a bottle of water in the room. As referred... More

Just a lovely place to use as a base to visit Edinburgh. The bus is at the front door and Pilrig street is a... More

We stayed at the Fraoch House for 4 nights in October of 2011. We had a fantastic time in Edinburgh and at the Fraoch House. Gareth was extreamly friendly and welcoming, the breakfasts were fantastic and he even packed us some early morning to-go breakfasts on our last morning. Our room was ample and clean with a large bathroom and... More

We stayed at the Fraoch House for three nights in June 2012. The location was great, about a 30 minute walk to Edinburgh Castle. There were a lot of places to eat on Leith Walk, a few great Italian places! We stayed in Room 1 and it was adorable, comfortable, and spacious. So much more than I expected! Breakfast was... More

What a find, we were greeted by Graham who straight away offered us a coffee or tea and some caramel wafers and chocolate tea cakes. He gave us a run down of the B&B and then some info on where to eat in Edinburgh and what to see. The room was beautifully decorated which made it feel very homely especially... More

We only stayed one night, but it was worth every penny. The breakfast was delicious, the room was spacious and we did appreciate the collection of DVDs to choose from. We arrived late, even so the staff was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. If we could have we would have stayed longer.

We absolutely loved everything about this place. From the moment we arrived and were greeted at the door we felt like we were simply staying at a friends place and not a hotel. However, the friend cooks, cleans, books your taxi, loans you all of his DVD's, and gives you the keys to the place. The service at this guest... More
