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...

The service in the hotel was excellent, with friendly and knowledgeable staff, meals were to a very high standard, and provided from locally sourced produce. Very comfortable rooms, very quiet area in Torquay, with good... More

Peter and Jackie were great hosts, very friendly and always offered information about the town, great on suggesting good places to eat and visit. The breakfast was definitely 10 out of 10! Homemade bread every morning, along with homemade jams and marmalade! The cooked breakfasts were also delicious. Bed was very comfortable and the room was also nice and quiet.... More

Just back from another long weekend at Glendower and everything as good as ever. Came away with a lovely pot of home made Blackberry and apple jam this time - superb. Can't rate Glendower highly enough for service, ambience, food, facilities, Peter's sense of humour and so on! Going back for more in August.

We recently stayed at the Glendower Hotel. Jacky and Peter were excellent hosts, very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. We had a lovely room with a large and comfortable bed and a very spacious en-suite. They provided an excellent breakfast, more than I could eat, although my husband didn't have any trouble, plus the added luxury of fresh,... More

Just back from a weekend at the Glendower with a couple of mates on our annual bike trip to Torquay. Arrived on Friday afternoon to be met at the door by Peter, who made us very welcome and actually takes the time to explain where things are etc,rather than assuming you will read the information guide in the 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

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
