Staff are very good, bedroom (room 319) is sufficient and has character – the downside is the very noisy air conditioning system throughout the hotel; the fan in the bathroom runs even when the light is switched off – the bathroom however has a decent size bath for the USA and it is clean and sufficient. The bathroom accessories e.g. soap are excellent. You can hear doors slam along the corridor so automatic closing (quietly) mechanisms would be greatly appreciated. Breakfast was OK, not stunning but sufficient. They have got several extensions to the original building and it is a shame that the build quality is variable; let’s hope the new building works are done to a high standard and are in keeping with the original building.
It is a real bonus that Glidden House is 4 minutes walk from L’Albatross Restaurant, which is currently rated No.1 on Trip Advisor – I enjoyed an excellent dinner there. Glidden House is also 5 minutes walk from the Art Museum, which I also found to be excellent. 7 out of 10.
