“A special place to stay, with special people looking after you”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

The abiding memory is of staying with Alan and Sylvia, being cherished and made to feel that our holiday enjoyment was really important to them: lovely conversations, excellent advice about local attractions, genuine interest in who we were and what we did. They are attentive without being fussy, and really good company; cultured, well-travelled people themselves and it is clear that they have thought about every aspect of the guests' experience at Brooklynn as if they were experiencing it. Whilst our bedroom was not over-endowed with space, there was a very comfortable guest lounge downstairs, which always seemed empty and was well-served with maps, local guide books and Alan's excellent photographs, as well as local art. (Our only real frustration was a weak and intermittent wi-fi signal - which was at least partly a valley-wide problem - if you need any significant downloading for holiday entertainment, then either go to a city or hope that Speyside catches up with newer technology.) The garden is lovely and large, with expansive lawns, outside furniture and hammock and a stream along the bottom - and stocked with fruit and vegetables which are likely (if you are lucky) to end up on your plate. The breakfast is really delicious, with fresh fruit and homemade yoghourt every morning and I never got any further than 'The Brooklynn' - a beautifully presented mound of scambled egg and smoked salmon on a circle of toast, sprinkled with parsley. If you are really lucky (this is available on quieter days) you can order a three-course dinner which rivals (probably exceeds) any restaurant within driving distance - starting with sherry and canapes in the lounge and leaving you very well fed and entertained. Brooklynn is licensed, has a good wine list - and, of course, the odd Malt Whisky (or Cognac if you prefer) to die for! We left feeling we'd made new friends and a home from home in Speyside.

Room Tip: All the rooms are named after Malt Whiskies - we had Glen Grant, which faced the front - it's a...

We did respond to the very detailed comments from you personally, but thank you once again for making them on Trip Advisor for all to see. You, and our future guests, will be happy to know that our wifi internet access is now greatly improved. We do take our guests' comments seriously and looked into improving internet reception. This we have done. Again, thanks for your comments and we look forward to welcoming you both back to Brooklynn - maybe in time for the next anniversary! All the best from Alan and Silvia

We can only offer our highest recommendations! Very cozy bed rooms and living room; amazing friendly welcome by Silvia and Alan; lots of good advice for the continuation of the trip; delicious breakfast (best on the entire 16 days trip in Scotland). And if one should get so lucky as to convince the hosts to prepare dinner for you I dare hardly speak of the details not to set expectations too high: At a very reasonable price we had one of the best dinners of our vacation.

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...
