Glendower is a very nice bed and breakfast, located a short walk from the sea front and the town. Good sized rooms and excellent en suite + free WiFi in all rooms. Good breakfast, and accommodation for vegetarians and requests. Really helpful owners, pointing you in the right direction for good pubs and trips. Would return if in the area... More

We have just arrived back from a weeks stay at the Glendower and would highly recommend it. It is wonderfully clean, really comfortable beds and a fantastic breakfast. Location is good, a short walk to the front through the grounds of an Abbey. Peter and Jacky really go out of their way to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.... More

We enjoyed our stay very much, Peter the proprietor went out of his way to make us feel welcome. Breakfasts were very good, especially the full English and the room very comfortable. Would highly recommend this Hotel. Bus transport was handy for Torquay as the stops are just up a little from the Hotel

My Wife and I booked late for our Honeymoon which was not a problem. We had a long but pleasant drive down to Devon and were welcomed by Peter on arrival. He gave us plenty of information concerning all the relevant hot spots and then took us to our room. The room was spacious and well appointed and because we... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and as a woman what I was most impressed with was the hairdryer in the room and the communal irons situated on each floor :-). Breakfast was lush although it beat us on day 2 homemade bread is too die for :-). Peter was a formidable host and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place... More

A group of us who were running the British Chess Championships took over the hotel (for the second time). We were really well looked after starting with a filling breakfast - necessary as we have few breakas during the day. Many of the ingredients were home grown and, if not, locally sourced. The rooms were clean and comfortable. There was... More
