It was lovely to meet you and Sarah and little Oliver and glad you had a good time. We look forward to seeing you next year, or before, and... More

Both myself, my wife and of course Amber would like to thank Bob, Lesley & Carla for a wonderful break after the disasterous begining of our holiday. It was truly a wonderful stay for us all. The hotel is very clean, decorated to an amazing standard and the beds are extremely comfortable, there is such a good variety of food... More

We are so glad that the first part of your holiday was a disaster, if it hadn't been, you wouldn't have found us. Losing the tent, getting soaked and being given a chalet that was infested with ants, any one of these would ruin a holiday so to get them all must have been awful. But, all these things lead...

On arrival this B & B looked super and our welcome from Bob & Lesley left us impressed but when we opened the door to our superior room we were blown away! Oh my it was huge, great big bed and a stunning bathroom we were speechless. My first duty is to inspect the bedding, the towels and check the... More

We booked a long weekend break at the Glendower (found via dog friendly UK website) between Friday 10th and Monday 13th July 2015. Booking online was easy which was followed up by a phone call to Bob who was warm and friendly. We arrived on Friday afternoon and were greeted by Carla. We had 2 Dachshunds with us who were...

Very pleasant and helpful people. Voluntarily gave me a room upgrade. Room was spacious, comfortable and clean. Just a short walk from the centre of Torquay. It is situated in a quiet area and there is off road parking usually available. (a bonus in this area)

I usually stay at hotels such as a premier inn (established chains) and had a wedding to attend in Torquay. I left everything to the last minute and the closest and most affordable hotel too Tore Abbey was the Glendower. Looking at photos etc. on the net I was a bit cautious as it didn't look like the standard premier... More
