My wife and I stayed at Two Hillside Crescent B&B after being touring Scotland for a week during August. After a short drive from Glasgow we found a parking space just in front of this big house. As soon as we entered the premises we were delighted with the contemporary decoration and attention to details and not to mention a long staircase that we enjoyed even though we were a little bit tired. We found the address easily after a few pointers given by Elaine, the nice young lady in charge of the B&B, it was tricky because of traffic street being diverted due to International & Fringe Festival activities. The room # 3 was huge and tasteful decorated, with all necessities (nice bathroom aka en-suite, Bathrobes, hairdryer, drink water etc, flat screen TV, etc.), a huge and very comfortable bed. After a good nice sleep, open the windows with a nice view to a park just in front of the house where people do jogging, went downstairs to have a quiet and full breakfast ( I tried the porridge - normally crushed oats, occasionally oatmeal as was my case). I agree with other reviewers in that the service could be quicker, but since they are cooked on premises and nicely presented they are worth the wait. We have a chat with Elaine who give us good tips for the Royal Edinburgh Tatoo Festival show that we attended that night at 9:00 pm, thanks for telling us to bring our blanked for what was a marvelous show but cold and windy at the end. In overall a Nice end to our vacation this Sumner 2012 in Scotland.
