Glendon Guest House

Reviewed September 22, 2012

Spent 4 nights in this amazing B and B! The hosts Adrian and Damien were friendly, charming and helpful in every respect. The whole building is immaculate, spotlessly clean and very well thought out. The bedrooms have everything you need and the beds are blissfully comfy - wish I could have taken mine home with me!

The lounge is ideal and the dining room second to none with linen tablecloths and napkins. A huge choice for breakfast - cereals, fruit, compote and full English or whatever part of it you want. They also have specials on every day - something I have never seen in any other B and B. A big thank you to Amanda who served us so pleasantly every morning.

The house overlooks the most gorgeous park with a stream which is a most pleasant place to walk through to get to the main part of town.

Musn't forget Jasper their lovely doggie who is so friendly but so well trained and although I would happily have had him sleep on my bed he knew never to venture into guests or communal areas.

Thank you all for the most relaxing few days!

We have just arrived home after four nights at this wonderful guest house. We arrived early but were welcomed with open arms and after being shown to our room we were offered coffee and cake in most welcoming sitting room. The guest house was just as described on the internet and immaculate in every way. Breakfast in the morning was a treat in itself with a variety of cereals, fruit and a wonderful cooked breakfast plate. Everyone made you feel special and my husband and I will be recommending this venue to all our friends it has to be seen to be believed.
Thanks again Damien and Adrian for a wonderful stay.

We have just returned from a 4 day stay at The Glendon. We cannot praise it enough, the house is beautifully decorated, a lot of care and thought has gone into every room. Breakfast was first class every morning, nothing was too much trouble. Thank you Adrian and Damian for a truly wonderful stay. You should both be very proud of your establishment. We will be back and cannot recommend The Glendon highly enough.

Room Tip: Four poster room was faultless.

Stayed for 4 nights in this superb very upmarket yet unpretentious B&B. Nothing is too much trouble for hosts Damien and Adrian, food is superbly cooked, rooms are total perfection, never had a proper frig before. Most comfortable sitting room where we were welcomed upon arrival with tea and the getting to be world famous Lemon Drizzle cake.
Absolutely beautiful location near to the river and a very short walk into the town centre. You will find ample car parking both off street and inside the provided car park.
Thank you both for making our short stay a truly enjoyable experience, we cannot recommend highly enough

Room Tip: All the rooms are good here.

This place has managed to get the balance right for a family by providing a fabulous welcome, a spotless and beautiful interior (very stylish Laura Ashley wallpaper in each room), a brilliant location and a very well thought out family room. The main bedroom was roomy and comfortable, but what helped us out (with kids aged 4 and 7) were all the little touches - there's a long list; (clean!) shower curtain instead of glass surround in the bathroom, which helps when bathing little ones; copies of the Beano alongside grownup newspapers in the drawing room; bunkbeds made up with soft squishy bedlinen; pegs for hanging up kids clothes, coats and bags; a chest of drawers featuring board games, toys and childrens books for a range of ages; a happy dozey dog who appreciated friendly patting; children-friendly breakfasts in the gorgeous breakfast room (kids yogurts, blueberry pancakes, ikea plastic tableware if you need it); adding beakers to the bedroom for bedtime milk... the list goes on. And on talking to Adrian, it was obvious how much thought has gone into furnishing this place so that it caters for those staying there. Handily, there is a park, including a childrens waterplay area, just round the corner (although the weather didn't allow us to try this out). Also, we didn't have any trouble parking behind the house. The owners are truly welcoming and accommodating, and I also loved the lemon drizzle cake and tea when we arrived. We hope to have chance to visit again.

Room Tip: There's one family room, so book early! It faces the park and church, so you might hear the odd...
