We stayed 3 days by Brown B&B. it is located in a very good place very near the city centre and the port. Marion and Norman, the owners, were helpful in giving advices and very kind. The breakfast is super. the en-suite room was warm and very quiet. Everything was perfect!

Together with some friends of ours we spent some wonderful days in Edinburgh in February 2012. The accommodation at Brown´s B&B was perfect, just fantastic. The Browns are extremely friendly people, who did simply everything for us. One of the highlights of our stay were the daily "breakfast-chats", during which we really learned a lot about Scotland, the people living there and their special kind of humour - a thousand thanks for that. Breakfast, by the way, is excellent (my personal favourite, believe it or not, was the home-made haggis). And the en-suite rooms are very, very nice and spotless. In addition to that, the guest house is ideally situated for all of Edinburgh´s major tourist attractions. To sum it up in a nutshell: Brown´s B&B can definitely be recommended for a stay in Scotland´s capital! And we will definitely come back as soon as possible. Thank you very much again for everything.

We had a lovely one-night stay at this B&B. Marion and her husband are incredibly kind, and really helpful. Our room was very nicely decorated and clean. Breakfast was absolutely great!
It's located close to the center (20 min walk max).

This was the first time we have ever stayed in a bed and breakfast and it was wonderful. Norman and Marion, the owners, make you feel like family. The room was beautiful and the bathroom even has a heated towel rack. Everything was very clean and comfortable. I felt like I was at home. Marion even set us up to go on a tour of the Highlands and the tour bus picked us up right across the street. Very close to anywhere you would like to go in Edinburgh. I enjoyed the walks around town....all roads lead to Brown's Bed and Breakfast. I would recommend this Bed and Breakfast to anyone traveling to Edinburgh and if you aren't planning to travel to Edinburgh I would make a special trip and stay here.
