Found this B&B on booking.com with excellent reviews. Called the place direct to confirm availability, and ended up getting it cheaper - excellent. Lovely, clean, bright place. Friendly owners, who are welcoming and accommodating - excellent breakfast (even tho I was too hungover to finish it). Highly recommend.

Lovely wee B&B close enough to Princes Street and surrounding areas. Comfy bed, beautiful breakfasts. Great to use as a base for exploring this stunning city. Even provide a wide selection of Organic teas and mug sized chocolate sachets. Was lovely to stay at Browns again and will return upon our next visit to Edinburgh. Go and stay, you won't... More

Just after returning from magical Edinburgh and I cannot stress that this B&B made it a perfect holiday for my boyfriend and I. The location is great. It's a 10 minute walk from the tram and playhouse and everything else would be a 20 minute walk. The B&B itself is absolutely lovely, it's located in one of the historically beautiful... More

2 night stay was very relaxed and easy. Rooms very well equipped including wide variety of teas and coffee options in room and extras in the bathroom you don't normally see. Breakfast very nice - recommend the scrambled egg and smoked salmon. Very near theatre and also easy walk to Princes Street and Castle etc. Taxi to center when you... More

we stayed for 2 nights in September. Our room was very well equipped and comfortable however the bathroom was very small, reminded me of my son's college room! Room number 4 was obviously the one to get reading other reviews! Having said that everything was there that you could have possibly wanted and Marion was extremely helpful. There are pubs... More

My mom and I stayed at Browns for 4 nights and we couldn't have picked a better place! Norrie and Marion were wonderful hosts and made us feel right at home! All our needs were attended to with no qualms, we were even given a wonderfully packed lavish breakfast on the day we had an early morning departure for a... More

We only stayed for one night, but would gladly have stayed the entire week. Browns B&B is unlike any other B&B I've ever stayed in, and is more like a great boutique hotel. The room (no 4) was big, luxurious and beautifully decorated. The bed was very comfortable, with a lovely down duvet. The landlord and landlady couldn't be lovelier,... More

Just returned from a fabulous 3 night stay at Browns B&B. We had a lovely quiet, clean room and the bed was so comfy. Almost every need is catered for in your room from wash bag items to sewing kits, alarm clock, hairdryer etc - you almost only need to bring your clothes! and an excellent stocked welcome tea/coffee tray...
