My sister and I knocked on the door to enquire about availability for end of August/Sept/Oct as we were just looking at alternative B&B options within walking distance to visit our mother who is in a nursing home. First we were met by a grumpy man who pointed out that the sign said No Vacancies. Then the lady answered the intercom and spoke to my sister while I could see her standing at the window. She didn't even have the courtesy to come and talk to us at the front door. The most bizarre experience ever and as a PR in the travel industry I would say they need to brush up on their customer relations!
So we've decided that although it's a bit further away we will most definitely be coming back to stay with the lovely lady, Lynda who runs Acelyn B&B on the Queensferry Road who has been fantastic and very welcoming.
