Room was spotlessly clean, with everything you could want, including a fridge. Breakfast was superb, we had lovely fresh fruit, followed by a very good quality, freshly cooked breakfast. Warm croissants and home made yogurt were also offered, which we were too full up to have. Maybe next time. Michael and Agata were friendly and welcoming hosts and we would... More

Everything about my two night stay was spot on. Michael and Agata really do make you feel very welcome and there are numerous little touches that make the Glen Ross stand out from the mainstream. Highly recommended.

The Glenross is immaculately clean, very comfortable, accommodating, friendly and well run. Our accommodation was fantastic. The bedroom was a good size and very functional. The bed comfortable and the linen seemed new.... More

Stayed here for four nights in September. The owners rang us up before we arrived to warn us about road works and traffic , luckily we were travelling by the train. This was just the first example of the thought and consideration they have put into the Guesthouse. When we arrived we were offered a cream tea which was gratefully... More

Stayed here for three nights in August. Owners were very friendly and informative about the area. Our bedroom was on the rear of the property, it was a quiet room and had a comfy bed with good quality pillows. Complimentary tea, coffee, biscuits and bottled water were replenished daily. Breakfast was lovely with fresh fruit, cereals, croissants and full English... More
