I stay regularly at Brooks Cottage The comfort and attention to detail is 5 star. Ideally situated to University and major amenities.

I was fortunate to return to Brooks Cottage in 2015. Lots of improvements and new comforts. Staff very congenial. The breakfast was still one of the best. Rooms exquisite as ever. Excellent all round. Such a treat to return to Brooks Cottage.

We had a fantastic stay. The location was perfect, safe, close to all amenities and the Brooklyn Theatre where I did concerts. Breakfast was amazing, garden beautiful, rooms comfortable, hostess very friendly. Highly recommended.

I was lucky to stay at Brooks Cottage for 2 months, August-October 2011. I had a fantastic stay! The location is just perfect, safe and close to all amenities in Brooklyn. I used to walk to Brooklyn Mall over the weekends and felt perfectly safe. The place is lovely, I still miss my comfortable room and big bathroom and I miss Melanie, the owner, who is very friendly and careful, preparing tasteful breakfast by herself! Highly recommended.

I had the great fortune to stay at Brooks Cottage in January this year. I had the most fabulous time. The rooms were exquisite, bathrooms super and felt like I was going from home to home. It really had the personal touch, without being intrusive. I wanted for nothing - breakfasts were one of the best I have ever had and amenities were all closeby. There was even a swimming pool for those who felt so inclined. Beautiful setting, lovely garden. Highly recommended.
