Fraser Court is a lovely halls all in all, the newly refurbished rooms are pretty big and modern with wonderful views of Arthur's Seat. Although it is a bit of a trek into town and to both campuses, it's conveniently close to Pollock, Holyrood Park and the Meadows. Everything is basically a 20 - 30 min walk and if you've got a bike, you're fine. I've personally managed without buses and taxis all year and most people do walk everywhere (including on nights out!). The new common room is absolutely lovely, flats are pretty spacious. The quality of cleaning in our flat was pretty poor and we had very unreliable hot water. Despite this, staff were generally helpful in fixing any problems (bar the mice infestation that took months to be addressed).

The management was rude as f*** most of the time and the cleaning lady didn't do her job properly

Would be a lovely halls were it not for the mouse infestations which accommodation services seems completely unable to fathom, let alone fix. I've personally been in a flat where the hot water was very unreliable, an added downside. The common room IS great, but we were promised it would be opened after renovation in October- it wasn't actually open until March! In other circumstances I'd recommend highly as it's not a bad location and I made lots of friends but honestly the issues I've faced and the unhelpfulness of the management has made it kind of a nightmare

Fraser Court is definitely value for money. The kitchen and bathroom of each flat are basic but don't let the aesthetic put you off, they're not going to stay clean anyway. The bedrooms have recently renovated and are actually much nicer than the majority of other halls. The common room was built alongside the renovation and it's definitely one of the best. I personally had the best social life at Fraser Court but that is totally dependent on who else ends up in your halls. The only downside I experienced was the location. It is ideal for socialising with Pollock and getting to King's for 9am, but you can't really pop down to the shop, and nights out definitely mean taxis.
