Fraoch House
Ranked #7 of 396 Edinburgh B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 October 2017

We stayed 4 nights in 2 rooms. The place is perfect- stop looking. The hospitality superb, the breakfast wonderful, and the treats in the rooms and common rooms, a thoughtful touch. Despite many nice hotels, the teens stated hands-down, this is the most comfortable place we have stayed in all of our travels. It has raised the bar.

The B&B is situated in a great area full of small shops and restaurants, with good access to the public transport and walking distance from The Shore and Albert Docks (pictured below). Very helpful, talkative and cheerfu Gareth - the owner, is the heart and soul of the place.

Our stay was very pleasant, the room was quiet, comfortable and clean with good WiFi connection and quirky deco. Breakfasts were very filling and varied with plenty of coffee and tea offered throughout.

Gareth had always made sure that, before we left the Fraoch House to explore Edinburgh, we were given plenty of directions and visiting tips as well as a smile was installed on our faces.

We enjoyed our stay and can recommend Fraoch House to everyone.

We stayed 3 nights at Fraoch House in September. This was our first stop in our Scotland tour. So we stayed in a few B&Bs along the way. Of all the B&Bs we stayed in, my 2 teen daughters voted this the best! The bedrooms and ensuites are all decent sizes and clean! Toiletries are supplied in big bottles and not those teeny, tiny little bottles! We love the afternoon treats Gareth left for his guests every day! Breakfast was good too. We kept comparing the fresh black berries we ate there at every subsequent B&Bs we stayed in! Location was good too. If I ever have the good fortune to return to Edinburgh again, I would certainly stay here again! Thank you Gareth for your hospitality! It more than makes up for the rainy reception we got :)

We arrived an hour early and were immediately greeted by the innkeeper Gareth. Gareth was very welcoming and treated us like family! Immediately offered us some coffee and gave us an overview of Edinburgh. Our room was lovely, very clean and bed was awesome. Gareth serves a wonderful breakfast each morning and we couldn't have been happier with our stay. We highly recommend the Fraoch House and will stay there again when we come back to Edinburgh. Thanks Gareth!!!!

Our host, Gareth, was warm and welcoming and so helpful. It felt like staying over at a friend's house. Comfortable beds and our room and private bathroom were both spotless. Well appointed with decent towels, robes and nice toiletries. We booked and stayed for one night. We had a nice breakfast and would stay here again if we return to Edinburgh.
The guest house is walking distance to numerous places to eat, drink and shop. There is a bus stop just by the house with a regular service. Walking distance to shops, bars, restaurants, pubs.
