We stayed here for 3 nights. We loved Browns B&B a lot: a warm welcome, a delicious breakfast, very nice and clean room, good location (quiet and near the centre). And above, the weather was much better than in Europe! So we make already plans to go back!

She left us with a great first impression (and two glasses of whiskey, which...

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...
