This lovely Victorian hotel offers large rooms with high ceilings and gorgeous sea views if you're lucky enough. I've used the Glen on several occasions as a student haunt and as a grown up in town for a visit and it pleases me on both these levels. In your room you can expect all the essentials to be there; a clean and very comfortable bed, an equally clean and functional bathroom with plenty of hot water on tap. Decor is a little tired in places and I know this isn't for everybody but I think it goes with the the age and type of building the hotel is. The staff are pleasant, helpful and know what they are doing. Checkout is at a very reasonable 10:30.
Breakfast is a basic but tasty affair consisting of variants on a full English breakfast, or smaller things like toast and cereals. Also the hotel offers a very pleasant saloon type bar with a very good 'pub grub' menu and comprehensive range of drinks for when thoughts turn to lunch or dinner.
I'm happy to recommend this for a shorter stay and particularly for people who don't need the lap of luxury, especially when paying sub £45 per night out of season.
