My Partner and i checked B & Bs on the internet, looking at prices ( sensible prices ) good reviews and location. We both agreed The Glenwood Hotel was our first choice.
Whenwe arrived, we were greeted by a very friendly couple - Tina & Arthur, the proprietors.
Our room was clean and very large, with a nice comfortable bed, ( slept very well ) and a mini fridge ( nice touch ).
We only stayed B&B but the breakfast was a FULL english, and i DO mean full, with plenty of choice if thats not your thing.
Location is very good, just a short taix ride from the station. 6 - 8 min walk to Torre Abbey, park and sea front or a 10 min walk to town.
Will definitely recommend to family and friends. We certainly had an excellent weeks stay.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back have the best views.

My wife Jean and I have just returned from our weeks stay at the Glenwood Hotel, this was our fourth visit and the food just gets better. Arthur & Tina make us so welcome and nothing is to much trouble for them.
We booked seven days half board and the breakfasts & evening meals were fantastic, all home cooked local produce to a very high standard, the room was en-suite, large & extremely comfortable.
I would have no hesitation in highly recommending the Glenwood Hotel and be assured you will be extremely well looked after by Arthur & Tina.

We shall be will be returning again in October.

Stopped at The Glenwood in May after being recommended by another hotel that was closed when we wanted to stay and were glad we were recommended to Glenwood, rather than staying in the other hotel.

We arrived Sunday evening, after our travel down, and were welcomed with smiles, and asked to sign in, and asked if we required a map of the area, we were then shown to our lovely and spacious room. We were informed where we to go if needed anything, and times of breakfast.

After a brilliant sleep on the comfy bed, we went down to a freshly prepared breakfast to your requirements with choice of tea/coffee/orange juice and then were told best places to go for that day as the weather was forcast to be brilliant.

We have a brilliant 2 night break and come home de-stressed and so relaxed.

Tina offered a street map and directions to the town and seafront upon our arrival and information on local attractions. The beds were very comfortable and it was quiet even though there are alot of nearby b&bs. Breakfast was lovely and even my fussy daughter ate some cooked breakfast and my partner was left full up till dinner. Bedrooms and entire place was spotless. We all really enjoyed our stay, great base for us and would recommend to other families.

We booked the glenwood guest house on recommadation from our friends.On reading the first review we were abit scheptical about going especaily with a young baby,but i have to say we never encountered any of these criticisms.When we arrived all three of us were giving a friendly warm welcome.
We stay in room1,it was clean,spacious,comfortable and ample room for our travel cot.The ensuite was excellent nice big shower,our complimentry tray had a fine selection of flovoured teas,coffee and bed time drinks.
Breakfast was a varied selcetion freshly cooked to our liking.
Very nice location,quite road,just 10 mins to the seafront and town centre.
We would not hesitate on recommending this guset house to anyone and will return next year.
A big thank you to Tina,Arthur and the family for making our hoilday memorable
