We were the first guests of the new owner and it looks very promising! I went with my 4-year old twin daughters and their godmother; we were given two connected en suite rooms which was very handy. One had twins beds and the other a double bed, perfect for a family. There was a lovely garden which my daughters made... More

On arrival at the Brownlow we saw a door marked reception and went in. On the table was a handbell which we rang. A voice from the interior shouted whose ringing that bell and when the lady came out she said rather huffily that we should have rung the bell outside (which we had not seen) and not come straight...

I've said it all before. My wife and I stayed here again last weekend and have no hesitation in recommending it again. Sue and Eric are great hosts and the accommodation cannot be faulted. As for the breakfasts, wow ! We think the few people who posted adverse reviews of The Brownlows must have made a mistake. They were obviously... More

Having made a mess of our booking Sue rather bizarrely tried to blame us for it - would recommend getting email confirmation to avoid our experience. On arrival and while we were there she was rude and unhelpful. We decided to skip breakfast to avoid having to stay any longer than necessary. Room and bathroom were clean and pleasant if... More

This was our first visit to The Brownlow. We had booked a table for dinner at The Kings Head in Ivinghoe and didn't want to drive back home late at night. We arrived at The Brownlow at 4pm and were shown to our room which was delightful. A large room with double bed, 2 armchairs, wardrobe, TV, kettle with tea... More

This is our second visit to the Brownlow and it was just as good on the second visit. Lovely big room, nice and warm. Sue is friendly and welcoming and provides a lovely fresh and hot breakfast. Right on the edge of the canal. We like to stay here when having dinner at The Kings Head just a mile away.... More

I stayed with my son as a half way point during a two day walk between Christmas and the New Year. Contrary to a couple of other reviews I found the hosting refreshingly good. The lady host (whose name I've forgotten - Sue I think) was direct (no nonsense) and pleasant, also very accommodating. the room was adequately sized (the... More

This B&B is well worthy of it's AA rating. Our hosts were helpful and very friendly and the accommodation matched good 4 star hotels and bettered many. Breakfast was excellent. Our room was one of several in converted stables once used for the horses of the bargees plying the adjacent canal.

Just stayed for the first time at The Brownlows. Fabulous location. Fantastic accommodation. Excellent hosts. Great attention to detail and no expense spared on the rooms. Breakfast was excellent too. Great canal walks on the doorstep, fantastic local pubs. Will definitely return. Phil and Julia.

A lovely location by the bridge leading to towpath walk along the Grand Union canal. Close to small village with nice pubs. Very good standard of accommodation, large, comfortable bed, spotless room with tea&coffee tray. Really nice, helpful owners. Only criticism would be the very early breakfast and check-out times which we've never found in the many other B&Bs/hotels we've... More
