A gas station washroom in central Alberta is flushing away stereotypes.

The powder rooms at Valleyview Shell Super Station, which boast granite countertops, a Victorian chandelier and geothermal heating, have made the top five in the search for Canada’s best restroom.

“We get an awful lot of people that come through and take pictures, a tremendous amount of compliments,” said Debbie Fox, the assistant manager.

“Most of the time when you pull up to a gas station you cringe about going to the bathroom. We hope that never happens in this building.”

Voting for Canada's best restroom continues until November 30.
