Stayed in Room 1 with a friend for the weekend. Informal, friendly and comfortable, great location on the High Street - and particularly loved the breakfast tray - wonder why more B & Bs don't do this. Perfect in every way!!!!! Will be back! :-)

This is my second visit to this amazing little B and B, it will certainly not be my last! Our hosts Glenn and Steve were so welcoming, made us feel very at home indeed. The breakfast is simply brilliant, fridge outside your room which is filled with a beautiful tray of goodies, eggs, bread, cheeses, yoghurts..... Could go on! Fantastic... More

This is a little hole in the wall, upper floor of a shop on the High Street, all of five minutes walk to Glastonbury Abbey. The owners are lovely people, very kind and accommodating, with comfortable rooms and a lovely do-it-yourself breakfast service (no, sorry, no full English here, but tasty pastries, lovely coffee and tea, and other fresh goodies)....

This was a second choice, recommended by a another B & B that we thought we really wanted to go to! But after our stay at Overlook we would not dream of going anywhere else, when we return, which we certainly will! Glenn was quietly welcoming, all our needs were met. We had room 1, spacious, with double bed &... More

We stayed here last summer (my husband, 6 yr old daughter and I) and what a find. We knocked your door late Wednesday evening looking for a room in your B&B over your book shop and you... More

Didn't even know you could get an electric egg boiler untill now. Friends stayed in room 1, standard of room the same. Nice happy family business. As... More

Stayed one night with my sister and felt very much at home in a most beautiful room overlooking High Street in Glastonbury. Welcomed by owners Steve and Glenn on arrival. Our room had a double bed and and an annex with a single bed so it would be ideal for a family. Breakfast was left I a fridge outside the... More

Found this place by chance walking in pouring rain down mainstreet, desperate to find a place to rest my wiery head. Great location, but includes street noises, which do not bother me. Single room so tiny, cannot have suitcase and walk around bed. NO PARKING! Misunderstood parking instruction npby host and got an expensive ticket,

We've been coming to Glastonbury Town for 6 years and by chance I found the sign for this lovely place. I loved everything about the Overlook, the fact you can open the door and be right in the centre of town and then when you close the door you have the silence. I love people watching so being able to... More
