Gordon, if ever you need to stay in Edinburgh try the Kenneth Mackenzie Hotel.

http://www.booking.com/hotel/gb/kenneth-mackenzie-suite.en-gb.html?aid=348052;label=hotel-179765_T-2_pool-couk_slice-99999;sid=69c107fb6c1dd9bd4969d7670ccae67e;dcid=1;srfid=2d22d385639d16024a9f145db6c14e8b1bef9e31X1

nocheese and I stayed there when we went to see Elvis Costello. It's definitely no frills but it's not expensive and has everything you need. One building is student accommodation and guest rooms are across a courtyard. You just put your key in a box, no hanging about to check out.
Good breakfast. Definitely no bag-carrying or other 'refinements'.

Definite slip up material there

Thanks for the tip, Lez. The only time I've stayed in Edinburgh I was actually in student accommodation. Rather chilly, as I recall, but one can hardly complain about that in Edinburgh in December.

No-frills is definitely good. We don't need no steenkin' frills. On the other hand, I stayed in a very no-frills place in that London about four years ago: tiny room with no space to sit down, horribly overheated, and £95 a night. For that kind of money the occasional frill - like the ability to open the wardrobe door without climbing onto the bed - might be expected. Still, better than the night I spent in a YMCA in New York in 1990. That still gives me nightmares.

That's one reason I don't go to the London PPU - my first experience was fairly horrendous. The second time I stayed at a Travelodge which was fine but not worth the £83 I paid.

Most people seem to enjoy slagging off Tori Amos, but I quite like her stuff.

I'm hoping there are some people who have never heard her and it's not just me. I've heard the name but didn't know she was a woman, I thought it was a band. Anyway, I'll give her music a try. I won't be slagging her off though, even if I don't like what I hear.

I bought 2 (very cheap) Tori Amos albums and was very disappointed. Nothing different about her at all.

Wharfie, both those are fine for the Windsor but are 3 miles from Kings' X. I think I'd rather be nearer the station than trust to taxis in the morning. Thanks anyway.

In reply to an earlier post on 25 Jan 2014 15:45:25 GMT
I can do better, I like it a lot. Well Little Earthquake and Under the Pink at least. To be honest I haven't heard her other albums other than a really good covers one I own. No reason to think they wouldn't be good though from the odd track heard on the radio..........

........and I have albums by Bjork

....just the prices of the surrounding accomodation Lez,there's always the Tube from Kings X to Paddington,Marble Arch and Edgeware Road.

I'd rather walk than go anywhere near the Tube, Wharfie. Definitely the stuff of nightmares!

I like chocolate but can't stand hot chocolate or that chocolate spread stuff that everyone else thinks is delicious on toast. Peanut butter is vile too.

Red wine's lush especially Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon but not Pinotage. It is an emotional drink though, can make you feel good or bring you right down. Chocolate's nice, especially Lindt though not a big fan of Cadbury.

Bought a jar of Bacon Jam from Tesco the other day, wouldn't recommend it.

Helen, that chocolate spread sounds almost as bad as peanut butter, so I've never even tried it. Apart from garlic bread, I hate bread with things in - onion for instance and the abomination that is pain au chocolat. I only like very dark chocolate but haven't really got a sweet tooth at all. I'd rather have extra spuds than any dessert!

ken whit's guid? reese's peanut butter/chocolate cups - regular or miniature :)

In reply to an earlier post on 25 Jan 2014 17:50:46 GMT
Not heard of them. Is that peanut butter and chocolate together tech? Not that I really want to find out, sounds disgusting.

Peanut butter with a thin spread of Marmite on toast, tops!
