From the welcome tea on arrival to the caramel shortcake squares laid out at night. we thoroughly enjoyed the Fraoch ("heather") experience! The host Gareth was friendly and helpful, the room was spacious and just WOW, the en suite was amazing, and the loaf of bread at breakfast is homemade. They also have one of the largest DVD collection of...

Stayed for three nights with friends, visiting Edinburgh. Chose this B and B as it was located just outside the city but within walking distance. What a great choice it was! The owner Gareth was welcoming and as it was raining and cold when we arrived he immediately put the kettle on and we had tea and shortbread biscuits in...

I cannot praise Fraoch House highly enough, everything was perfect for our weekend stay. The staff were so friendly & helpful, our room was perfect (room 6), the location was great, with a bus stopping right outside the door with a regular service. The breakfast was the best I have ever had, with the usual fresh fruit and cereal to...

My husband and I, together with his mum and partner spent three days here and had a great time. The guest house is located just about a mile from Princes Street and the main shopping area in Edinburgh. There are plenty of local buses if you don't fancy the walk, which run every few minutes through the day. The property...

I stayed at Fraoch House with my 10 year old daughter. We were greeted by Gareth on arrival after a long day travelling who straight away offered us a welcome cup of tea. Gareth was great, very bubbly (my daughter loved him) and offered us loads of info about things to do and good places to eat in Edinburgh. Our...

We had a wonderful 2 day stay at Fraoch House. We loved the welcoming tea and biscuits on our arrival from the wonderful owner, Gareth. He directed us to the best parts of the city to visit so that we would make the most of our short stay which was very helpful. Lovely little touches like a plate of chocolates...

Stayed for only one night on7th April 2013, wished we could have stayed longer. Gareth was as usual an excellent host and spent loads of time with us chatting. Room 8 was lovely and spacious and very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was delicious and nothing was too much trouble. We will always go back to Fraoch in future, thanks Gareth...

We stayed at Fraoch Hose just before Easter. As seasoned Australian travellers, this B&B is in the top 5 percent of B&B's in the UK. It is beautifully appointed and the owner Gareth, was a superb host and bon vivant with an excellent knowledge of what to do and where to go in Edinburgh. The rooms are a good size...

We really enjoyed staying here! From the moment we arrived we were shown round the b&b, and were offered some lovely little chocolates (nice touch!). We were also shown a cabinet full of dvds which we were allowed to help ourselves to during our stay. Our room was absolutely lovely. A really comfy double bed with a lovely ensuite shower...
