Returned to the Glenview for DH's 60th birthday treat. As usual, a relaxing and enjoyable stay with very helpful staff. We were welcomed back like old friends, and our room was clean and comfortably warm. Treated to drinks by the manager - thanks Brian! We had requested a front facing room and this is what we got. Lovely old furniture adds character and interest. Our package included one dinner which was delicious. Breakfast looking out over the valley (and everyone else travelling to work on the N11!) was very nice, altho we had to wait for some items. Fried eggs deserve special mention - just perfect! The mini croissants just out of the oven were well worth waiting for. The woodland walk is as demanding as you want it to be - you can have some climbing and steep areas, but if you want, you can just go on a shorter flatter walk, or for those not so active, just a few steps will take you to the gardens at the front of the hotel, with secluded areas and lots of seating. The pool area is outstanding - sitting in the outdoor hot tub at 8am on a frosty morning must be the height of luxury! Yes, the hotel is perhaps a bit dated, and in some places could do with a face lift, and certainly new tv's - but overall it is solid comfort and has a character missing in many soulless hotels elsewhere. We'll be back!
