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.

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

Very welcoming, clean and comfortable. Plenty of choice at breakfast and an optional evening meal available. The full english breakfast was wonderful and freshly cooked. Bed was comfortable and the immediate area was quiet. Tina and Arthur know the area well and can recommend places worth visiting and suitable for all tastes. Will return.
