Had an amazing two night stay with my girlfriend and our little dog Lupo. Our room was big and our bed was super comfortable. As vegan/vegetarians it's always a treat when bnb's cater for us, we had a wonderful breakfast and they even gave our dog Lupo a sausage! 10 minutes walk from the coast and cafes meant the location...

We were warmly welcomed by Bob who made us very comfortable from the beginning. The room is nicely decorated (I like that shade of blue) and cosy as well. The only drawback is the shower in the morning with water not warm enough.

Hi Remi many thanks for your review and glad you were comfortable with us. Sorry to hear about the shower not being hot enough. All rooms are fed from the main system from our storage tanks and it can take a few minutes to reach the rooms, it may have been as simple as it wasn't run for long enough.... More

Will definitely be returning in the near future! Everyone was so friendly and helpful and the hotel was wonderful. The double room was spacious and yet had all the comforts you could need!

Parents, children and dog were all made to feel very welcome. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful. The room and beds were comfortable, with even a bed and towels provided for the dog! The location was very convenient for access to the seafront. Breakfast was excellent. We would happily return.

My wife and I, and our two golden retrievers, stayed at the Glendower for four nights over Easter as we really needed a break. We did the usual search for "Pet friendly B&Bs" but so many of them were clearly "Pet tolerant" not pet friendly. You know the ones where you get stuffed in a dark and dingy back room... 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
