Fraoch House, Edinburgh
great host, breakfast and room!
My first true bnb experience and it was great! First, I arrived at a time the host was unavailable so he contacted me with just enough timing to have some correspondence but not too far advanced for the details to get lost in my inbox! He arranged how I could retrieve the key to enter and upon my entry, there was an envelope with my name, some useful information about the bnb and the location including bus info and the best part was that there was a welcome tray of sweets for incoming guests!! I booked the Single - Private Bathroom. It had a double bed and a window that looked out the front of the house. The bathroom was across the way with its own key and it is strictly for your use only. It had all the amenities so you don't need anything except for your toothbrush and toothpaste. The room was very comfortable and I didn't hear anything coming from the neighboring rooms despite being fully booked. Breakfast was delicious and hearty and the host came in to greet every single table, asked what their plan was and offered any help that anyone might need, including a map. Breakfast included fresh fruits, yogurt, apple and orange juice, different breads and the option to order off of the menu for hot foods. The location of the Froach House is a short walk to Leith Walk which has many pubs and other restaurants. I highly recommend this place and would stay here all over again!

Didn’t ever want to leave.
We didn’t ever want to leave. What a great stay. We loved our room, full of architectural interest with high ceilings, period molding and a lovely bay window. The bathroom was modern and adequate in size. But here’s the real treat: being welcomed with great warmth and humor by proprietor, Gareth. He’s a really good cook, too. Great breakfasts. The guy was born to welcome people to Edinburgh, it seems. The weekend host, Kat, was sensational, too. In addition, her communication with us prior to the trip was prompt and very accommodating. Applause for the lovely woman (sorry, I forgot her name) that helps Gareth out with breakfast. So nice, she made us feel like family. We wish all involved with Fraoch House all the good fortune in the world. Thanks for adding to our many reasons to cherish Edinburgh!

Excellent B&B with a great host.
This B&B was in a great location for visiting sites of interest in Edinburgh. The host was very helpful in giving us directions, tips for what to see, calling a taxi, etc. He was also quite accommodating during check-in and with regard to the times he offered breakfast---which were excellent. It was a pleasure chatting with him. The room was large, well equipped, and comfortable.

Great start to our stay in Scotland.....
This B&B was fantastic. Garett was the perfect host and very friendly and knowledgeable. The breakfast was also amazing. The location is great, only a 15-20 min walk into town. Busses also very close. The room we stayed in was very clean and comfortable. Would definitely come back here again and would recommend staying here.
