Not the best greeting when we entered the property. Are arrival seemed inconvenient. As was the arrival of our friends the following day. We didn't arrive at the time we said we would. Should this really matter? Noise levels are preferred to be kept to a minimum which I guess is fair enough. So if your planning a weekend partying... More

Yet another stress-free week at The Glenwood. Year on year, the standards of hygiene, cleanliness and comfort have remained high. Tina and Arthur once again proved very attentive hosts, encouraging us to flag any problems immediately. They did not disappoint! Rooms were well maintained and serviced daily. My spacious double contained a dressing table with stool as well as two... More

We had a good look around before we booked a B&B to stay in, we were not disappointed with the Glenwood, very quiet area to stay in and not far to the sea front. The car park car be a bit tight when it is full up but I think there is a space for all the rooms so you... More

Have just returned from 6 lovely days at Glenwwod. From the first moment to the last moment we were treated with courtesy and politeness and Tina and Arthur made us feel so welcome. The breakfasts were superb, all cooked individually to our exact preferences. Our room (No: 2) was beautifully laid out, with two single beds, large wall mounted television... More
