What can we say ...... What a friendly and welcoming B&B we can't thank Lesley and Bob enough for making us feel so welcome. Amazing breakfast, pancakes to die for, immaculate rooms, 10 min walk from the beach and harbour, great location. Can't wait to come back. Thank you so much for a great holiday, from Paul Michelle Jack Aimee... More

A very good bed and breakfast. Friendly owners and staff, good breakfast with lots of choice. Parking is usually available. Fairly good location, bus stop nearby if needed. Direct booking is probably how to get the best deal!

Welcoming and friendly owners and staff, large single room (larger than many double rooms I've stayed in), excellent breakfasts, quiet at night, everything spotlessly clean. Close to railway station and beach and on bus route to town centre. Excellent all round!

Hi David glad you enjoyed your stay and that you were happy with the single room. It is indeed bigger than some double rooms available elsewhere and also has a three quarter or as some call it, a small double bed which make it so much more comfortable. Many thanks for taking the time to do us a review and... More

Hi Michelle what a great review, thank you from us all at the Glendower including the young blonde Lisa.

What a great welcome we had from Bob, Leslie and Carla. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Yes the breakfast is as good as described. They cater for everything and everyone.

Hi Julie, Roger & Lenny many thanks for such a lovely review and so glad our little B&B fulfilled your needs. Breakfast is a little awsome even for Lenny and we understand not needing lunch, so many guests say that they didn't need to eat again until their evening meal. Maybe the yogurts, home made jams and marmalades and the... More

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
