We booked based on the reviews we read beforehand, and were not disappointed. We arrived very late on the evening of a family wedding, and the host patiently waited up for us, something we did not realise until it was pointed out. The rooms were clean and well decorated. The peace and quiet during the night makes it very easy... More

A friendly greeting from Tina on our arrival. The room was beautiful, & everywhere was spotlessly clean. Lovely breakfast far better than in many hotels we've stayed in.A short walk to the seafront & shops.

Will stay again !. Booked the Glenwood after reading other reviews and after speaking to Tina, the owner on the telephone. We needed somewhere that would offer a downstairs letting room for a 90 y.o. with a stick. This was not a problem. Check in was easy. The 2 rooms offered were both well presented with large bay windows that... More

The hotel is about 10 minutes walking distance from the railway station and seafront and has a private car park. .After booking in Tina asked if I needed any information about the area and things to see and do. I mentioned that I would be out early... More

This was a first time stay at the glenwood, excellent room, excellent food, excellent hosts, next time my wife and I are in Torquay we will definitely stay there! Arthur and Tina were most welcoming, the breakfasts were very good, full English cooked by Tina was my favourite, cereals and juices were available as well.

My wife and I arrived at the Glenwood for a three day break. We were given a very warm welcome. Our room was spacious, clean and airy. The Guest House is situated in a nice part of Torquay, about ten minutes from the seafront and similar from the town. Breakfast was very nice and we stayed for dinner on one... More

This was my second stay of a fortnight's duration at The Glenwood and I had absolutely no hesitation in returning. On arrival I was pleasantly surprised to find I had been given a complimentary upgrade to an even larger double room than the one booked which afforded fantastic views across town. Having travelled the UK extensively, I can safely say... More
