This was was my fifth consecutive year at The Glenwood. I am happy to report that this well located Guest House in a quiet street is better than ever. Tina and Arthur's attention to detail and cleanliness is second to none. Comfortable beds, smartly presented rooms, daily servicing and excellent cuisine. During that time, I have noticed constant improvements and... More

Amazing couple, clean, your room is cleaning daily, breakfast included, not too far away to Torquay Harbour, but really peaceful place. Not expensive and 9.2 rate on Booking.com it's the best proof to choose The Glenwood to your stay in Torquay!

On arrival we had very warm welcome and were shown to our top floor family room which was lovely. Very clean, spacious with nice decor. Location was very handy for the beech and shops too. Breakfast had a good selection and was delicious. Especially Mum's omelette with the works in it!! Would recommend and stay again if in area again.

... Arthur and Tina were lovely people. Friendly..chatty ..helpful. The children loved their room and didn't want to leave! Breakfast was great. Car parking is good. And only about 10 minutes to walk to the beach. Plenty of places to visit... We all had a nice time. Would definitely be great to return 😀 Thank you,to you both....

I spent there 5 nights. Tina and Arthur were very friendly. The room was clean and washed every day. Food was very good. I would recommend this place - good location, reasonable price. Breakfast was standard. The room was well furnished. I would surely come back.

We booked based on the reviews we read beforehand, and were not disappointed. We arrived very late on the evening of a family wedding, and the host patiently waited up for us, something we did not realise until it was pointed out. The rooms were clean and well decorated. The peace and quiet during the night makes it very easy... More

A friendly greeting from Tina on our arrival. The room was beautiful, & everywhere was spotlessly clean. Lovely breakfast far better than in many hotels we've stayed in.A short walk to the seafront & shops.

Will stay again !. Booked the Glenwood after reading other reviews and after speaking to Tina, the owner on the telephone. We needed somewhere that would offer a downstairs letting room for a 90 y.o. with a stick. This was not a problem. Check in was easy. The 2 rooms offered were both well presented with large bay windows that... More
