Stayed here for one night. We were welcomed by the owners with a glass of whiskey for my husband and a glass of amaretto for myself. What a lovely way to start. Our room was spotless and extremely well appointed. A very comfortable bed. There was a good choice of cooked dishes for breakfast including a full Scottish and scrambled... More

We stayed in double room 2, maybe not with the biggest bed, but what counts are all other things. Immediately upon our arrival, Sharon - the doughter of our hosts - welcomed us and explained everything that is to know about the b&b and about Edinburgh. She left us with a great first impression (and two glasses of whiskey, which... More

I am writing this review on behalf of my parents. My sister and I organised a trip to Edinburgh for their Golden Wedding Anniversary celebrations. Mrs. Brown made contact with me personally before they were due to arrive to explain a couple of things in order to make the stay trouble free. I have spoken at length with my parents... More

We really enjoyed our time at the Browns Bed and Breakfast in Edinburgh. We stayed 3 nights and could not have felt more welcome from our hosts who were full of personality and were just a delight to deal with. We originally could only get a twin bed room since their king size bed room was spoken for. However, when... More

Marion looked after us very well during our stay. The room was spotlessly clean, with good furniture and space. Very comfortable indeed, including toiletries and a good selection of teas and hot chocolate. Breakfast choice was excellent without being overwhelming. Plenty of fresh fruit, a selection of cereal, yoghurt and cooked breakfasts available. The cooked food was all of excellent... More

The Browns is an excellent choice if you happen to stay in Edinburgh. It's within walking distance to all major tourist attractions, the hosts are adorable and the breakfast is typical Scottish. Fresh fruit, cereal, juices, coffee, tea etc. are available as well. We stayed in room #3 for two nights, and even though it's been rather small, the intererior... More

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.
