Great place, Peter and jacky were great host, the breakfast was so filling, enjoyed it so much. Nice and comfy beds room was spotlessly clean, Would stay there again. We used our bus passes, the bus service is great, they are every 15 mins, and you can go any where.

Clean, comfortable, spacious room. Excellent breakfast with lovely home baked breads. Peter, the owner was very helpful and offered great advice on where to eat, where to visit and the best way to get there. Happy to recommend the Glendower.

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

The booking was quick and easy to make over the phone and a reservation made. My parents were welcomed with tea and biscuits... More
