I loved staying at Browns bed and breakfast! I already felt the warm welcome through the email exchange I had with Marion before my arrival. Marion and Norman are great hosts, who really manage to make you feel at home, away from home. Marion patiently answered all my many questions about tours and where to go. She was extremely helpful...

We stayed at Marion and Norman's guesthouse during the Hogmanay 2011. Our room was spacious, warm, cosy and very clean. Hosts are extremely friendly and the house itself is welcoming and very quiet. Breakfast was fabulous and enjoyable along with 'Pots' jokes! If we will go back to Edinburgh we would definitely stay there again! Tapadh leat!

Just got back from Edinburgh went with a friend to celebrate my birthday and it was my first time in Scotland. We received a warm welcome from Marion and Norrie.
