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

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,

A breakfast is brought up for you in the morning consisting of cereal, fresh fruit, bread , eggs and other little goodies. Now im a fussy bugger and always miss my bed when on holiday except...

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

We have visited glastonbury many times before, but have never stayed in the town(usually we are camping at the festival!). Coming for the Extravaganza gave us the perfect excuse to spend a few more days in the... More

Highly recommend. Will be coming back very shortly. It was a shame we had to leave. We received a warm welcome, fab room . great breakfast, really liked the food being put into a fridge to help ourselves at our leisure and wow what a selection of food. Large clean room very comfy bed in the heart of Glastonbury

Central, clean and cosy. Personal and welcoming. Friendly but never intrusive. We arrived late in the evening, but Steve and Glen met us and even went to buy special diet food for us. We highly recommend the Overlook!
