Highly recommend The Glenwalden. The guest house is very clean & and the décor lovely & cosy. The service is excellent & Helen & Ian make their guest feel extremely welcome & at home. A must have is the cooked breakfast, absolutely superb. Will definitely visit again, wonderful place & host.

Ian and Helen were perfect hosts, Hotel was very clean rooms were warm. Breakfast was 5 star cooked to order and presented well with a good choice of cereal, fruit juices, tea coffee and toast. Our car was parked at the hotel which was a bonus. Yes we would not hesitate to stay here again.
