Tonight I was made to take my shoes off when stepping inside the house and was later confronted by the horror which is a RAINBOW TOWELLING TOILET SEAT!!

I can’t wee until I leave the house in 10 hours time!!

What’s the worst thing you’ve found in an Airbnb?

Isn't it just manners to take your shoes off in a house?

Hover over the toilet seat

What kind of fresh hell is a rainbow toweling loo seat? We need a picture OP!

TitaniasCloset Sat 28-Oct-17 22:32:39

You mean the seat has a towelling cover on it? Eew!

Just here to second the need for photo OP...

I've never used Airbnb but used to holiday with seaside landladies. My favourite place looked like a haunted Hammer House of Horror mansion on the outside, and it was like Barbara Cartland had vomited over the inside. And it smelled funny.

I don’t mind taking my shoes off, I just don’t get why you would be asked to take your shoes off and then sit on a towel of other people’s wee. Hovering not really an option - my aim hovering is pretty poor...

The seat in question...

toweling ????
Who on earth uses a towelling toilet seat. Yuck

Brings new meaning to ‘gold at the end of the rainbow’ grin

Can you not take it off and then put it back on after?

Littlebatcalledlucille Sat 28-Oct-17 22:40:20

I have two toilets.
I have these toilet seats in both.
How bloody rude!

scoobyloobyloo Sat 28-Oct-17 22:41:04

I don’t want to touch it...

Cary2012 Sat 28-Oct-17 22:41:34

Thanks for the photo. My eyes hurt now.

scoobyloobyloo Sat 28-Oct-17 22:41:49

Not rude little, just personal preference. Guess your bum never gets cold so that’s a bonus.

ButchyRestingFace Sat 28-Oct-17 22:42:02

How bloody rude!

I'm sure OP had offending you as a business item when she posted. hmm

Fruitcocktail6 Sat 28-Oct-17 22:42:11

That's rank

Blahblahblahhhhhhh Sat 28-Oct-17 22:42:29

Where's me pot of gold eh! Bloody hell it would be like pissing on a 1980's children show . Where Bungle when you need him .

ButchyRestingFace Sat 28-Oct-17 22:43:23

If the toilet cover were heated, it would be perfect.

But yes to taking off your shoes. Unless you're some kind of barbarian.

scoobyloobyloo Sat 28-Oct-17 22:47:23

Little, do you live in Wales and rent out a room? I might be in your house.

kuniloofdooksa Sat 28-Oct-17 22:47:41

Ewwwwww to towelling toilet seats that is rank but surely it's just a cover over a normal toilet seat and you can take it off and put it back when you leave?

I've only done airbnb 3 or 4 times and have never encountered anything rank. The only minor issue was the place that was advertised as having an en suite shower but the cubicle was so tiny you literally couldn't raise your elbows out at shoulder height in order to be able to wash hair, or bend a knee up to hip height in order to be able to wash feet, so wasn't much use as a washing facility.

scoobyloobyloo Sat 28-Oct-17 22:50:27

Would you touch it to take it off Kunil? It’s kinda tied on I think round the back...

Littlebatcalledlucille Sat 28-Oct-17 22:50:40

I'm sorry! I'm laughing so hard here!

I was only joking

It's fucking hideous!!!!

Op take that acid trip seat off and put it back on when you leave?

My eyes!!

scoobyloobyloo Sat 28-Oct-17 22:52:38

I thought you’d managed to take Mumsnet to a new level of easily offendedness Little!

NurseButtercup Sat 28-Oct-17 22:53:12
