Me and my girlfriend were met by a very friendly gentleman who appeared to be running the hotel alone - and doing a very good job. We felt very well looked after and were able to quickly settle into the hotel itself almost like a home even though we only stayed one night. The room was lovely and spacious with... More

First impressions can be important and we were not disappointed by the reception we received from Gareth. He unloaded all our luggage while we had coffee and shortcakes which he had already prepared for us. After asking what we wanted to see and do in Edinburgh, he described how we could best accomplish them. The bus stop into town was... More

It was my sixth time in Edinburgh, I just like the town, but the first time alone. I was a bit apprehensive of the fact, to be honest. The minute I arrived at Fraoch House I felt welcome and at home and not at all awkward. Gareth was full of good advice and very friendly even though I turned up... More

You know when you read through all those 5* reviews and think, I doubt it, surely not or it is probably exaggerated? You know when you get there and finally find out what all the fuss is about?

The Fraoch House lived up to its 5 star hype! Everything written about the friendliness and helpfulness of Garreth and Kat is well deserved. Both were happy to answer our questions and we ready to offer a few suggestions as well. Breakfast was delicious, including a homemade plum jam that I thoroughly enjoyed. Sadly, we had to leave early our... More

We very much enjoyed our 3 days at Fraoch House. Gareth, from our first cup of tea with shortbread, was a terrific and entertaining host. Our conversations always included smiles and laughs. Our room, on the lower level, was very nice...quiet and private. The bed was comfortable, and the bathroom spotless. Breakfast, a busy time, was very good, with much... More
