“Brooklynn on the other side of the pond”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

Our family of 4 had a lovely stay for (sadly) only one night in mid-July. Silvia and Alan are gracious and helpful hosts, full of knowledge of their surrounding area and ready to help with suggestions, reservations and directions. The rooms are extremely comfortable with large and well appointed full baths. Breakfast was a treat with home-made preserves, compote and other goodies. We had a walk about in the garden in the morning, truly a labor of love. Would be the perfect spot for a couple, maybe we'll get back there some day!

We had never stayed at a B&B before. We are very happy that we finally did. The Brooklynn is owned by Silvia & Alan. They are the nicest, most welcoming hosts you will ever meet. Their home holds many interesting stories & items they have collected over the years of traveling. I would have liked to spend a wee bit more time taking with them but we were on a whisky trail tour and didn't have the time. Each morning they made us a delicious breakfast that included homemade yogurt & compote, porridge, eggs with salmon or bacon, even haggis (which was quite good). Our room was larger than most hotels, it had a private bath and a very comfortable mattress. There is a good internet connection from the room too.

As a 'mature' couple, we have travelled extensively and stayed in a wide variety of accommodations around the world.
To find a B&B of this quality is very rare, as it is exceptional in all respects.
Silvia and Alan are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful hosts who are clearly passionate about giving their guests the best possible experience.
We would highly recommend Brooklynn for anyone wishing to explore this beautiful corner of Scotland....and particularly recommend the home cooking, which is exceptional!

Room Tip: We stayed in Glen Farclas, but also saw other rooms. Each room is equally well equipped and uniquely...

Alan and Sylvia are the most exquisite hosts you could wish to meet. They are very welcoming and caring and they helped us kindly with the must-dos of the region the whole time. The meals, both breakfast and dinners, were each time a great moment, thanks to the delicious cooking as well as the quality of the company. The house is a sweet reflection of the curiosity of Alan and Sylvia who went to many places. The rooms were very comfortable, which we needed due to the whole walking around during the day. Simply, a place we highly recommend and where we will definitely come back.

Thank you! We really enjoyed your company and especially your help with our latest wine purchases. We have had a bottle or two already, but not the ones you recommended we keep. Maybe, if they are still there, we'll open a bottle on your next visit!

With our kind regards and a warm 'hello' to la belle France.

I went on the Speyside Whisky Trail organised by Rabbie's. They were chosing our accomodation. I chose B&B + and was "stationed" at Brooklynn's.
It was a very positive experience. Sylvia and Alan are very welcoming and caring. Their home reflects their many travels. I had this lovely double room with ensuite bathroom (and my own toilets :)) For breakfast, a large choice of combos : porridge the Scotish way was just excellent and their signature dish The brooklynn (scrambled eggs with salmon and cherry tomatoes) a very savoury way to start the day.
I would recommend this B&B to any traveler. Granton on Spey is a convenient location to travel around the Speyside.

Room Tip: I was in Glengrant room

We have stayed here many times en route to the far north of Scotland and it is absolutely excellent. Alan and Silvia are so friendly, welcoming and helpful. The accommodation is extremely comfortable and a very interesting house. The food is total perfection and a real treat that we look forward to. Everything possible is home made with tasty breakfasts with fresh fruit, homemade yoghurt and lovely cooked breakfast. The evening meals are cooked perfectly with an incredible attention to detail in the presentation.

I can't speak highly enough of the Broklynn Guest House. Comfortable rooms, WONDERFUL breakfast (best haggis and rhubarb compote I've ever had), and super cool hosts. Ask about the interesting stuff they have about the house--each object has a story. I'll definitely return if I'm every anywhere near Grantown-on-Spey.

We hope you did not have have the haggis and rhubarb together even though they are both so delicious! It was good chatting to you about life in your part of the US and the environmental changes afoot. Hope it all goes the way you want it to! We enjoyed your visit and your interest in all the Brooklynn artefacts - we are running out of wall space. Thank you once again and we look forward to welcoming you back to Brooklynn in the future.
