After 2 nights in Forres in the most beautiful guest house @£70/night we arrived at the Portaloo, sorry, Portabello. From the pictures on booking.com it looked reasonable but as we pulled up outside our hearts sank. It was like arriving at a 1970s tenement block. On entering it got worse. The decor was unchanged for several decades, it smelt dirty and was furnished with what can only be described as charity furniture. The room was tiny with only a sink. It was a shared toilet :( as we were at the top the wifi did not work and the kettle lead was so short that the curtains draped over the kettle next to the plug! The bed was ok and the bedding was clean despite being from the 1960s. Parking was an issue as there was only a tiny forecourt and my car became blocked in by another car. When we wanted to leave in the morning after the minimal (one rasher of bacon, one egg, half a tomato, a small scoop of beans, one coffee) breakfast we had to hunt for the owner of the car. It turned out it was owned by the owner of the B&B who wasn't even out of bed at 930am!!!!! Please spend your £80 on buying a tent instead of staying here. This is THE WORST B&B I have ever stayed in. Please avoid at all costs.
