The rooms and service was perfect, the people were very friendly and welcoming and location was brilliant. Very accommodating for my dog, Tigger. Very close to local amenities. Couldn't have asked for more.

Hi Izzie we loved Tigger, so friendly until the dog sausage arrived, not to worry, the doctor says my fingers will grow back in time! I'm joking, they won't grow back, I know that! How silly one gets at bedtime, sorry folks, I'm tired and the brain just runs away and lets the fingers do the typing, I will try... More

We stayed in their family room. Myself and four young children! It was perfect. Very clean and comfortable. Dark curtains, not blackout. They were very accommodating in every respect - they are very child friendly - not something you always find! They provided a gluten and dairy free breakfast. They really could not have been more helpful. The Glendower is... More

We were a group of four couples attending a NARPO Conference and stayed at the Glendower for two nights. The hosts, Bob, Lesley and Carla were extremely friendly and welcoming. The breakfast menu was varied and delicious; as was Lesley's homemade cakes and spreads. Would definite stay there again and highly recommend it.

A really friendly welcome from this lovely and united family. Breakfast was wonderful quality ingredients, beautifully cooked by Lesley. The hotel is well located with a short walk to the beach and harbour, with all its cafés and restaurants. We would recommend this hotel highly.

Hello Geoff great review and a clear message to other dog owners not wanting to leave their best friends in a boarding kennel.

We stayed for two nights at The Glendower. A very warm welcome from Bob and Leslie. It is very clean and tidy, room well equipped. The breakfast is very good, good choice, well presented, would not be out of place in a 4* hotel, in my opinion.

We stopped at the Glendower for three nights. From the time we arrived until the time we left the hosts were very accommodating and helpful. Our room was light, bright and very clean. Breakfast was excellent with a wide range of local and home made produce. We found the whole experience great and would certainly stay again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Location Location Location They say location is King and if it is, the Glendower is certainly royalty. We are lucky to have one of the best locations in Torquay with the International Conference & Leisure Centre just over the road with its excellent swimming pool and first class facilities and right beside that is Torre Abbey and its 800 year history and beautiful gardens. We are just a few hundred metres from the main beach and a mere 10 minute stroll to the harbour with all it’s shops, bars, cafes, restaurants and clubs. As well as all this, imagine, after a blissful nights sleep on what many of our guests describe as the most comfortable beds they have ever slept on, you come down to a fresh, cooked to order English Breakfast with local free range eggs, sausages hand made for us by our local butcher and delicious thick cut bacon from the same butcher. Image also fresh bread (granary and white), and tasty jams and marmalade to spread onto them. Finally we also provide a range of tasty, healthy yogurts to accompany your breakfast. Well imagine no more, if this ticks all your boxes then hit the check availability button and you can look forward to a warm and friendly welcome from your hosts Bob, Lesley & Carla. But it’s not just our fantastic breakfasts that keep our customers returning. Our rooms, which are constantly being refurbished and upgraded, are large and well equipped. Each has a 19″ flat screen free view TV, personal security box, hairdryer, iron & board, free high speed wifi throughout, complimentary tea/coffee (and biscuits) and of course all our rooms are fully en-suite. Also, our bar/lounge is open every evening for your pleasure. All our beds are of an extremely high standard with a deep luxurious mattress covered with a thick quilted topper for that extra bit of comfort. Being so close to everything means that many of our guests park the car for the duration of their stay and either walk into the harbour through Torre Abbey Gardens and along the seafront or use the bus that passes our front door. We are the ideal location for both holiday and business guests. Breakfast. To drink, we have fresh filtered coffee, Tetley tea, fruit teas and fruit juice. We also offer a healthy option of soya milk and fruit. Toast is available from the breakfast bar and we will be along for you to order your choice of cooked breakfast from our menu. We can also provide an early breakfast for guests who want an early start or for guest travelling on business. One of the best locations in Torquay, large rooms, great decor, very comfortable beds and a brilliant breakfast, it doesn’t get much better than the Glendower. Check out our reviews, on any of the booking sites, and of course on Tripadvisor. We look forward to welcoming you to the Glendower Torquay. Your hosts Bob, Lesley & Carla ... more   less
