Dear reviewer Thank you for your kind comments. We always try and offer what we look for ourselves - a good shower, on site parking, a friendly welcome, fresh milk in the room for tea & coffee, and a comfy bed. We're glad we ticked all the boxes for you on this occasion. Please come back after our refurb when... More

This was our first visit to Torquay and our first time staying at The Glenross, I can definitely say this will not be our only visit. We were welcomed with fresh coffee and home made brownies. As this was our first visit we were given lots of useful information about places and restaurants to visit. The bedroom in which we... More

Hi Ros Thank you for taking the time to review us. We're glad you found our recommendations useful. We don't recommend anywhere we haven't personally visited ourselves. It's a tough job but someone's got to do it! It's good to hear you will be visiting Torquay and the Glenross again very soon. Kind regards. Andy & Julian. More

Just spent 5 days at this lovely B&B looked after by Andy and Julian known to us from our many happy stays with them in their previous 5* guest house in North Wales. Their attention to detail is brilliant, they have thought of everything to make your stay perfect. We were warmly greeted and served with tea and homemade chocolate... More

Hi Sue It's always great to see repeat guests and particularly to see so many people from our last place in Wales coming to see us to sunny Torquay. We're glad you enjoyed the walk down to the sea front through Torre Abbey gardens and along the picturesque harbour. I agree - Cockington is a lovely village - we enjoy... More

So happy we chose to stay at the Glenross!... We were welcomed by Andy with a well needed cuppa and the best chocolate brownies EVER!... We were shown to our room, although compact had everything we needed and more, impeccably clean and one of the comfiest beds we've slept in... Breakfast was on a whole new level, so much variety...

Dear Danni & Marcus Thank you for taking the time to review us. You stayed in our smallest room which are cosier but we do have several other rooms to choose from which all offer more space and comfort - particularly after we've finished our refurbishment when we'll have complete suites available too. The best room rates are always on... More

We wanted to break a journey up from Cornwall to Shropshire. This was a great half way point. On arrival we were greeted by both the owners, who are warm and friendly. Our stay was perfect, with a high level of luxuries in our room, including the shower which has been finished to a very high spec, and was defiantly... More

Hi Dan Thank you for your review. Guests are often shocked by how picturesque Torquay is and how much it has changed in recent years. A lot of local investment continues and there are constantly new restaurants and shops opening up. We're glad you liked the shower and bed in your room. I think you were probably in room 17... More

This B&B met all expectations - the owners were lovely, the B&B was clean and the room was very comfortable. On arrival we were given some great recommendations for restaurants before being shown to our room and offered tea and scones -- what a way to start. The room was immaculate - the bed was incredibly comfortable and the bathroom... More

Hi Stef Thanks for your review. We're glad you enjoyed staying with us. Parking at B&Bs can be difficult in Torquay so it was important to us to buy a place with plenty of off road parking on site. As we're so closely located to Torquay and the attractions, most people walk or get public transport which is good here... More

Andy & Julian took over this B&B only three weeks ago, having moved from N Wales where they ran a 5* Guest House. I've stayed in several B&Bs in Torquay over the last few years and this is already the best. Lovely comfy bed, pillows and duvet. A pot of tea on arrival with home made Brownies. Great breakfast choices... More

Hi Thanks for your comments which I'm sure other visitors will find useful. Glad you enjoyed the homemade yogurts. I spent the six months in between leaving our old place and moving into this one perfecting them. My homemade granola will be back on the breakfast buffet when we re-open next year. It's good to point out the steps up... More
