I have now stayed in Wallace's Arthouse a number of times. Why? Firstly, Wallace has made a stay in his B&B a very special experience for everyone who goes there. It's a beautiful space, full of light, wonderful touches like bowls of fresh cherries in the bedroom and fluffy white bathrobes, not to mention spotless, top quality bed linen. It manages that wonderful mix of feeling really stylish and really comfortable. This last time he was even hosting a wonderful art exhibition in the public rooms.
What else? Well it all comes down to Wallace himself. You'll never find a more genial host, offering wine or tea as soon as you're through the door. He'll make breakfast at your convenience and to your tastes. Once he knew I liked fresh fruit and yoghurt for breakfast, that's what he serves me, in great abundance. He treats everyone as a friend, yet absolutely observes their privacy.
I have stayed with Wallace when staying over in Edinburgh to go to theatre shows and so on and also for business, as it's a short walk from the Scottish Government headquarters, where I sometimes work.
And lastly..it's a stone's throw from some really world class restaurants. What more could a woman want?!
