“Truly Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2010

As it's a seaside resort, Minehead in February is quiet, and many of the hotels and B&Bs are closed. But there was nothing "out of season" about the hospitality I received at Glendower House for 2 nights. Peter and Katrina know their business, and do what they do unobtrusively and extremely well. I stayed in a good sized single room with en suite facilities. These were spotlessly clean and comfortably appointed. My room, and the hosue as a whole, were decorated moderately and tastefully. A delicious cooked breakfast set me up well for the day ahead. And just to mention a small thing, it was so nice to have a proper linen napkin rather than paper - an example of what marks this establishment out as superior in its class.

Minehead is a great base for exploring West Somerset's many attractions. Glendower House is just a few minutes walk from the town centre, in one direction, and the sea front and West Somerset Railway in the other.

Peter and Katryna are very friendly host. The breakfast was excellent, especially the local Exmoor products. The room (No. 10) was very spaceous and comfy with a nice view to the garden. The garden is a lovely place to sit and relax in the sun. Town and promenade are in walking distance. It was the first B&B where we could do our laundry, definetely a plus if you travel for a long time.
Glendower House is definetely a place which we can recommend. We need to come back...

Had to review again just to say that the family (21 of us this year) decended upto Peter and Catrina at the Glendower once more (6 years running now) and the service has never been better. A real home from home - this is the reason we all go to Minehead....wonderful hosts!

Breakfast is a feast....the rooms are all well furnished and spotlessly clean.... and for special occassions ask for Room 6 with the four poster bed!

To top the week off Peter put on a great performance at the Regal theatre in Pirates of Penzance....

2 night stay- excellent. Hvae stayed in several places in Minehead but this will be the one
we return to on our annual visit in future. Lovely rooms with generous hospitality trays and powerful shower with lots of toiletries.Breakfast service was very efficient and food piping hot and delicious. Lovely garden too--our room overloooked it and the sports grounds beyond--very quiet & peaceful,

We stayed at Glendower House for a week, enjoying first rate accommodation and great breakfasts.

Our double room (number nine) on the first floor was spacious, clean and tastefully furnished. The bed was comfortable and the shower had decent pressure. The delicious ginger cookies - replenished daily - were a nice bonus.

Glendower House has a pleasant lounge as well as some seating on the rear patio overlooking an immaculate garden. There's no bar, but you can store your own drinks in the fridge at the back of the lounge. Parking at the front on Tregonwell Road is free, but the B&B also has its own car park at the back reached via an alleyway linking two side roads.

Everything at breakfast was cooked freshly and served promptly. The locally made museli and stewed fruit were wonderful. Peter and Katryna couldn't do enough to help. You really couldn't hope to find kinder hosts.

We have stayed at Glendower House twice in as many years, and would happily stay there again - and recommend it.

We stayed in the room with the 4-poster bed, and large bay window - had everything you would need, absolutely spotless, with a personal feel - not an anonymous type of place.

Peter and Katryna are doing a fantastic job here - great welcome and marvellous breakfast. Just the thing to set you up for a day's outing. Nice sunny garden at the rear of the hotel as well.
