Visiting Torquay for the first time in years with my wife Linda & son Kieran so remembered that an old Army friend ran this establishment... It is run with military precision with a focus on customer service... Nothing is too difficult for Pete & his lovely wife Jacky, the rooms are very comfortable & spotlessly clean with a tasty breakfast... More

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!

This was our first visit to Torquay. We found the Glendower an excellent place to stay. It is well located for the town centre and to rail and bus links. The owners Peter and Jacky made us most welcome and Peter was full of local tourist information! The breakfast offered was the best experienced to date. We will confidently recommend... More

Glendower is a lovely place to stay. Peter, the owner made myself and my son (a couple of shy types) feel welcome from the moment we got there. Our twin room was lovely, well furnished, comfy beds and a great en-suite. My lad was super impressed to get hi speed wifi included! (although only needed on evenings as the weather... More

It was to be my parents Diamond Anniversary. They spent their honeymoon at The Glendower 60 years ago. I rang and spoke to Peter. He was very obliging and had a ground floor room available for them. The booking was quick and easy to make over the phone and a reservation made. My parents were welcomed with tea and biscuits... More

Our second stay, this time for nine nights in a lovely room(#7); Hotel is spot on, location is right on the button, breakfast superbly cooked and presented, a very spacious room and a very relaxed ambiance and experience whilst there. Peter and Jacky are lovely hosts and very helpful. I recommend this hotel and would return again without hesitation.

We booked this hotel as a last minute holiday in Torquay and were pleasantly surprised to find it was exactly as we hoped it would be. The accommodation was clean spacious and very well equipped and the location was perfect for walking or taking a bus to the resort center. Our hosts Peter and Jackie were lovely and nothing seemed...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This year to supplement our hearty and delicious cooked English breakfast which is sourced from local producers (where possible) we are introducing a range of home made products, these include Bread (brown & white) Jam and a selection of tasty yogurts. It’s not just the fantastic quality of our breakfasts that keep guests returning, it’s also our privileged position. One of the best located B&Bs in Torquay only a 5 min walk to the seafront with free internet and on-site parking facilities. Close to the Riviera Sports and Conference Center, Torre Abbey and Railway station yet situated in a quiet tree lined road. We operate a continuous improvement programme and this year another two rooms have been refurbished. Rooms are comfortably furnished and classically decorated. All are en-suite with free Internet access. Hotel features spacious dining room and licensed bar. ... more   less
