'Nothing to complain about' sounds a bit grudging! But it's meant to be high praise for an establishment where the host is clearly working hard to get everything just right. Everything in the room and en-suite bathroom was in top condition. The Townhouse is extremely well-located for a short stroll into town. Greg's tips of places to go to for drinks and eats was sound. Comfortable beds. Cooked-to-order, substantial full English breakfasts for us - and Greg would have put himself out to meet requests for other options. He was very pleasant to chat with but also would have put himself more in the background if you're not the chatty sort! We would definitely return.

Aside from this being a beautiful house to stay in, Greg is perhaps one of the nicest people you could meet! A bright and warm welcome awaited us and throughout our stay, nothing was too much trouble. My sister-in-law and I took a couple of days to mooch around Glastonbury and relax and are so glad we booked The Townhouse, exceptional hospitality and perfect breakfasts. The house itself is spotless, inviting and the crisp yet plump duvets and pillows and comfy beds make a welcome retreat for shopped out bodies! Highly recommend!

Hello there, thanks for taking the time to review your stay with me and I am made up that you enjoyed your stay. It was a pleasure in having you to stay. The shopping in Glastonbury is tempting isn't it :)

Hope to see you when you fancy another shopping spree.

We spent one night at The Townhouse on our way to a retreat at the Penny Brohn Cancer centre near Bristol. I'd been to Glastonbury a few weeks previously with my girlfriends and wanted to go back with my husband. We arrived on a very wet Sunday afternoon via the White Spring and Godess Temple. Greg was friendly but not intrusive. Our room was a decent size with everything we needed for the night. The bed linen and towels were superb and we had a very comfortable night. Breakfast was freshly cooked and Greg went out of his way to cater for my vegan and gluten free diet. The Townhouse is situated opposite Morrisons and 5 minutes from the High street. Thanks Greg.

Thanks for your lovely review, I am so pleased that I managed the vegan/gluten free meal to a standard you were happy with! I am no expert when it comes to both in one meal :) It was my pleasure having you to stay and I hope to see you again sometime.

I always check reviews before I stay anywhere now and as I was booking for two couples it was especially important to get it right! The welcome from Greg is very warm and he makes you feel right at home straight away. The whole experience is excellent, the décor is superb and all very clean. Breakfast is perfect and my wife thoroughly enjoyed the pancakes with fruit and maple syrup. The location is close to the town centre and we walked everywhere from the B&B, even up the Tor! No hesitation, highly recommended. All hope to return before too long.

I booked a room for myself and wife for the 15th &16th of September. On arrival we were greeted by Greg and instantly made welcome. The whole place is spotless and decorated to a high standard. Very pleased with our room, and the breakfast is an excellent start to the day. The position is ideal for exploring Glastonbury and surrounding area. Nothing was too much trouble and, when I asked for something that he didn't have Greg went out and got it for me for the next day, Lovely. A gem, What a lucky find, A fantastic place to stay and we will be back and recommending it to friends. Thanks very much Greg.

Looking at accommodation in Glastonbury, we were looking for somewhere in easy walking distance to town and parking.
So we looked at this Tripadvisor site and couldn't believe Greg's place's reviews.
Well, we had to check this out and it had all of the above box ticking items, but our host was without doubt, the most charming, erudite, interesting 'hotelier' ever - advising on pubs and eateries (including great discounts) etc.....
Thanks for everything, Greg - the only host Christine has kissed on leaving a B&B!
Cheers mate

I am so glad I didnt disappoint, I hope you didnt mind my kissing Christine on the cheek!! Seriously, its always my pleasure to make my guests feel comfortable and looked after, if I manage that (along with clean bedrooms and a good breakfast) then my job is done. My total pleasure having you to stay.

Hope to see you again next time you are in Glastonbury.

Stayed here on a one night stopover on way to Cornwall - but we will definitely be back for a longer stay. Greg is a delight and a fantastic host. Everything about the place is just right - spotlessly clean, immaculate decor and very tasty good quality breakfasts. Great location for the town, within 5 mins walking distance from pubs and restuarants. Off street parking very welcome - especially if your car is loaded for a longer trip and you need it to be safe. You must stay here.

Thank you so much for the lovely review. I do try my best to make my guests stay as comfortable as I can and it looks as though I managed it for you guys. I hope you had a great time in Cornwall, its one of my favourite parts of the UK after Glastonbury of course. Cant wait to see you again.
