We stayed at seven B&Bs during a 12-day stretch in the UK. All were nice but Fraoch House stands out as the "most excellent." Gareth, our host, was friendly but not "in your face" as some B&B hosts can be. The room was comfortable, clean, and well-appointed. Breakfast was outstanding!

Had a great stay at Fraoch House. The breakfast was great and the location was perfect. Gareth was very helpful during our stay. He gave us lots of information about the city. The room was very comfy. Wish we would have stayed longer. We hope to be back soon.

Having read the reviews about Fraoch House, we booked in for our four day break to Edinburgh. B&B is brilliantly located for town (the 11 bus stops by the front door) and Leith waterfront (for delicious eateries). We were welcomed by Kat who was lovely. We were spoilt for choice at breakfast and enjoyed the morning chats with Gareth. A...

The reviews are definitely right. I stayed for 2 nights & was made soo welcome. The breakfast selection was fantastic for both cooked breakfast as well as the cereal selection. The room was nice, well laid out. I would definitely go back again.

One of the best bed and breakfast we've stayed in. Gareth was welcoming and really helpful. The bedroom and bathroom were spacious and immaculate. Love the little personal touches of sweets and biscuits. Breakfast was good and filling. Homemade bread was lovely. Will definitely stay here again.

Can't rate Fraoch House highly enough; from the perfectly convenient location, the super friendly welcome and attentive service received from Gareth and Kat to the exceptional comfort from the beautifully furnished bedrooms. It really in exceptional value and my overall experience was better than that received from some high end hotels across the country. I will certainly be returning with...

Stayed for the first time this week. Great location, great room and great breakfast. Lots of little, welcoming touches around the building shows the effort the owner puts in to make it an enjoyable stay. Will definitely stay again.

Stayed here based on the reviews and really glad we did. The owner (Gareth) is friendly, helpful and enthusiastic. The room was immaculate. The whole building was warm and cosy. This is a place that goes the extra mile, nothing is too much trouble. Lots of well thought-out little touches abound. Gareth's local knowledge helped us to find places to...

We visited Froach house about five years ago, and obviously when we decided to revisit Edinburgh there is no question where we were staying! Gareth is a brilliant host nothing is too much trouble! We had room number nine this time which was as he called it 'in the dungeon', far from the truth it was in the basement with...
