Booked though hotels.com website and were the first guests under new ownership. They made us feel most welcome with a cup of tea on arrival. Rooms are clean, comfortable and spacious with most things supplied. Breakfast was first class and location close to sea front was ideal

Decided to visit Torquay again for the Easter Bank Holiday. Bob & Lesley are the perfect hosts. The rooms are great, the beds are comfy and massive, the food is great, and the place is dog friendly! Nothing more could be asked for!

Great place, Peter and jacky were great host, the breakfast was so filling, enjoyed it so much. Nice and comfy beds room was spotlessly clean, Would stay there again. We used our bus passes, the bus service is great, they are every 15 mins, and you can go any where.

Clean, comfortable, spacious room. Excellent breakfast with lovely home baked breads. Peter, the owner was very helpful and offered great advice on where to eat, where to visit and the best way to get there. Happy to recommend the Glendower.

Great family run bed and breakfast. Excellent knowledge of the area. Couple of the reviews on here are not very complimentary and all I can is that they couldn't have stayed at the same bed and breakfast we did!
