My wife and I stayed for one night in this excellent bed and breakfast house. Norrie and Marion were extremely pleasant & helpful and added to our stay in Edinburgh.
The accommodation was very clean, well furnished and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast was of an excellent standard with good choices and exceptionally well presented with quality accessories.
Set in a quite location, it is only 10 - 12 minutes walk into the centre of Edinburgh and only 5 minutes to the Playhouse.

My husband and I stayed here over the long weekend while on a mini break to Edinburgh. Browns B&B was an excellent choice of accomodation- really lovely and cosy rooms, very clean, great breakfast selection, central and very warm welcoming hosts! Its no more than 10 mins walk to the city centre. Would highly recommend!

We booked two rooms for four of us and both were nice and clean (even one of them has an odd toilet design, but that wasn't a major problem).

Breakfast was also very nice. Just one suggestion is that Browns can consider improving the wi-fi set up as it is not working very well, especially at night. We always got disconnected in the evening my family and I want to do some Facebook-ing.

But overall it was a nice experience with Browns.

My wife and I stayed here for 1 night as we were going to a show, on arrival we were greeted by Marion the landlady and this lady is the most charming lady you will ever meet, it was as though she had known you for ever and thats a big wow in our books. We were then shown to our room which was superb in every way and by the way Marion where do you get your bedding very nice indeed.Breakfast the following morning was awsome the sausages well they were superb everything on the plate looked too good to eat. All in all you wont get better than Browns so we have booked another two nights in June for our wedding anniversaryand another show.

We were a group of 3 girls visiting Edinburgh to watch Wales v Scotland. After a long journey we arrived at Browns & had a lovely welcome from Marion & her husband. They could not have been more helpful in telling us the best places to visit & the best way of getting around the city. It was a short walk in the city centre & we walked the entire wk end. Our room was spotless and very comfortable. We could choose our breakfast from a huge selection & it was all lovely. They really couldnt do enough for you. I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends & I'm hoping to return here as soon as possible.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights for a belated anniversary weekend.

The room was lovely and totally spotless. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast both days was fabulous. Chosen from a menu, we got to pick exactly what we were in the mood for and it was cooked perfectly.

Thanks again.

As South Africans travelling with terrible exchnage rate, this is really great value for money. Very central. Attention to detail is amazing. Comfortable warm beds; spacious rooms. Brilliant service from Marion and Norrie. Warm and friendly hosts who make you feel so welcome and that you want to retrun "next time". They were very happy to oblige with a packed breakfast for the day we were off early on a tour of the highlands.
