My husband & I had been touring the UK by car since the beginning of June. We had stayed in many different bed and breakfast places along the way. We found Browns to be one of the most spotlessly clean, even a tray for your shoes! The room was exquisitely decorated & had the usual supplies of tea/coffee facilities &... More

What a gem! We found this B&B on Trip Advisor and emailed. Marion was quite helpful in arranging our visit. We actually had the place to ourselves as we had enough folks in our group to take every room. The place is spotlessly clean, the meals were the best in Scotland and the location was perfect for our week long... More

Beautiful-, absolutely clean room, delicious breakfast and very lovely staff. Eventhough the B&B is close to a mainstreet you don't hear any noise in the room. We slept wonderful. A lot of small details made the stay to a perfect visit. Big variety of teas in the room, soap for showering, cotton swabs, first aid kit...etc. It was even thought... More

Never been to Edinburgh before and really enjoyed it. Much rested on how good the hotel was and it is! Good value for money, good food, good room and excellent, helpful staff. Would stay again without hesitation.

We had a fantastic stay on the weekend of the Edinburgh marathon, Marion and Norrie were fantastic hosts, the rooms were spotless, the breakfast was lovely, they catered for my boyfriend who is gluten and dairy intolerant and the complimentary biscuits and toiletries were a lovely touch. The location is great and if you have any questions Norrie knows everything!!!... More

I stayed at this lovely Bed and Breakfast for 5 nights at the beginning if May and I enjoyed every second! The hosts are very kind and helpful. We got a lovely breakfast every morning and even breakfast to go, if we got up very early due to a day trip or our departure time. The rooms are lovely decorated... More

Together with three colleagues of mine I spent four nights at Browns B&B. And all I can say is that it is the perfect place to stay when you would like to visit Scotland´s fantastic capital. The rooms are clean and comfortable, breakfast is delicious, the city centre is within walking distance and, last but by no means least, Mr... More

My sisters, mum and I just stayed for 1 night here as we were going to the Playhouse to see a show! What a really lovely couple who couldn't do enough for you, rooms were immaculate and excellent breakfast! Brilliant location and we will definitely be back. 5 minutes walk to Playhouse and Princes Street so very handy.

Decor fab, hosts lovely, lots of lovely touches in the room and only a 5 minute stroll fo the playhouse. Lots of take-aways, restaurants, pubs nearby as well as tesco express & co-op. If you... More

What a lovely bed and breakfast in Edinburgh, Browns took our booking as a last minute plan as we'd been let down by another and we were grateful for this but everything defiantly worked out for the best as we couldn't of asked for a nicer place to stay. I arrived with two friends at 11.30am and we were able... More
