Graham and Francois are the nicest people I met at any place, warm, welcoming, willing to help to the last detail, they made me feel special by asking me how my days went in Edinburgh, had small yet rich chats.
The breakfast was super hot and very fresh, usually; I'm asked if I want white or brown toast with my breakfast, they offered me three; white, brown or seeded!
a buffet of 4 kinds of juices, flavored yogurts, fruits, and 5 types of cereal packets, and you have a selection of jams and honey ready on your table, soft classical music, beautiful clean white sheets on tables, just marvelous.
The room was very comfy, Thick bed plenty of pillows, a wardrobe, a sink and a constantly running heating system, which makes the room steaming hot in a matter of minutes.
the carpet was clean, no signs of dark spots, I felt fresh just being in the room, which is updated every morning after breakfast time's up.
On the 1st floor there is one shared toilet and one shared bathroom+toiletl, both provided with sinks and soap, the bathroom had lots of shampoo/gel selections, not sure if that was left by visitors or provided by the hotel, I had my own anyway.
The place itself isn't too far from the center, 15 minutes by bus at £1.40, where you could go to Edinburgh castle, Vue cinema, Prince's Street and the incredible Edinburgh playhouse where my concert of "Distant Worlds" was held.
Absolutely loved my stay at the bed & Breakfast, would recommend to singles and couples alike.
I like changing venues and experiencing other places, but if I didn't I would definitely come back to the fabulous Glenisla.
