John made us feel like welcome friends, not just guests, and it was our pleasure to join him and his wonderful friends (and two gorgeous dogs!) for drinks at the bar and have a relaxed chat with really lovely...

I spent 4 nights at The glen, its designed with the comfort of the resident in mind, the tea/coffee facilities, ambiance and room decor is all of a very high standard. Each room was individually crafted to a high standard. While I was visiting Blackpool I became ill at John as proprietor was excellent in helping me.
