“Glendower House”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

A very pleasant stay at this B&B. Room and bed were clean, large and tastefully decorated. Lovely breakfast served by man of the house! The location was perfect as it was within easy walking distance of everything that one needs to do and see.

I stayed here with my grandmother for 3 nights in July. We had a very friendly welcome and the room was perfect for us. It was clean, welcoming, well decorated and very comfortable.
The location was ideal for us as we did a lot of walking in to Minehead. It is in easy reach of the main street, the beaches and the train station.
Breakfast had a lot of choice and variation which was great. Everyone was very friendly which made the atmosphere enjoyable to be in.
I would recommend this hotel to anybody, especially those seeking an excellent and well kept hotel with a good location! I would love to stay here again.

We chose this hotel from TripAdvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. This is a clean and comfortable hotel, whose owners clearly take a pride in providing great accommodation and a warm and friendly welcome. Each day is given a good start with a very tasty and well-presented breakfast in the pleasant dining room. We have every intention of returning.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2010

Everything in the previous reviews I can confirm is true. Situated in a quiet road not far from the main street and station, the Glendower looks little different to its neighbours. However here is a B&B that would give most large hotels a run for their money in terms of facilities and luxury. I would add to the comments already posted by adding that it was as warm as toast, the bed was large, comfortable (new?) and fitted with good quality linen. The bathroom was spotless and newly decorated with quality towels and toiletries. And all at a very reasonable price.
I would say that Minehead is a base rather than a destination (to be kind). We arrived by train for a change, the last bit on the West Somerset Railway albeit with an annoying bus link from Taunton to Bishop’s Lydeard. Did an open-topped bus trip across Exmoor to Lynmouth, as well as a visit to nearby Dunster Castle. A great short break in a super B&B.

The room was comfortable and clean and mine host friendly and unobtrusive. The breakfast was good with a wide variety of entrees including fresh fruit salad. The room had all the amenities one would expect in this day and age. I would happily stay there again.
