Bob, Lesley and Carla made us most welcome from the time we set foot in Glendower until the time we left. The room was prestine. The breakfast was out of this world, all locally sourced ingredients. Very friendly evenings were spent with our hosts in a well stocked intimate bar, an all round exceptional hostelry. Terry and Sue, Bath.
