Hi Libby glad you enjoyed your stay, thank you for your review and the 5 star breakfast comment especially. We are very lucky to have such a great location which is in easy reach of everything, the station is 5 minutes walk, town 10-15 and just 5 minutes to the beach. We look forward to seeing you again soon and...

We stayed here as t was close enough to the main town and also the train station. When we arrived at the train station Bob was waiting to drive us up to the Glendower B&B - this was a lovely surprise. He showed us round the guesthouse and explained where everything was before showing us to our room. It was...

Hi Kirsteen another great review, thank you so much. Always happy to pick guests up from the station if we possibly can. It's not far away but with cases it is so much easier to get a lift. We hope to see you back at the Glendower one day soon. All the best Carla, Bob & Lesley Always book direct...

We were made most welcome and allowed to leave our luggage early, which was then taken to our room when it was ready. Bob provided all sorts of information about Torquay before we set off for the day. Our room was light and sunny with excellent tea/coffee and biscuits, and it was very quiet at night even though the hotel...

Great attention to detail in the beautifully decorated and clean bedrooms and warm, friendly and helpful service at all times.

Hi jmb many thanks for your review and so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. 5 Star breakfast, high praise indeed, thank you. It seems that Lesleys breakfasts are getting a bit of a following as many are talking about them before they even arrive. No pressure Lesley. Hope to see you again and you can spend more time...

Stayed for three nights to celebrate my husband's birthday. The proprietors were extremely welcoming and helped make a great short stay. Superb breakfast. Excellent, well decorated, spacious room. Very good location too, near the sea, in the centre of town, you can walk everywhere. Own car park.

If you asked central casting for 'Torquay B&B' and then dialled it a couple more notches toward stereotyping for 'weekend of spring school holidays' you'd get the Glendower. A couple of grumbles: the (very) small television perched high on the wall gave a new meaning to 'using the remote' and no working wifi ('tablets are always a problem' - well,...

Hi Richard Thanks for taking the time to do a review for us. Are you ready for my aggrieved rebuttal? The television is positioned quite high, about 5 ft to avoid people bashing their heads on it. It is a relatively small TV at 19". That said, our family rooms have large TV's and some of our superior rooms also...

Four friends and I had a wonderful stay at Glendower. The rooms were very comfortable, there was a huge choice for breakfast, the staff were extremely helpful and accommodating and the atmosphere was very relaxed and friendly. If we go back to Torquay this is where we will be staying. I can't rate it highly enough.

My husband and I were completely surprised by this lovely place. Hosts, Leslie and Bob, were so accommodating and friendly, so much so that they allowed us early check in. We enjoyed their company in the late evening; very interesting couple. A moderate walk led to the Harbour and shops, with an excellent restaurant within minutes. Overall a great stay...

Hi Linda lovely place and highly recommend, that says it all really Linda, thank you very much for your kind words. You need to mention at home that you need more surprises, at least one per month would be okay although I'm sure you deserve more. Hope to see you both again soon. Best wishes Carla, Bob & Lesley

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Location Location Location They say location is King and if it is, the Glendower is certainly royalty. We are lucky to have one of the best locations in Torquay with the International Conference & Leisure Centre just over the road with its excellent swimming pool and first class facilities and right beside that is Torre Abbey and its 800 year history and beautiful gardens. We are just a few hundred metres from the main beach and a mere 10 minute stroll to the harbour with all it’s shops, bars, cafes, restaurants and clubs. As well as all this, imagine, after a blissful nights sleep on what many of our guests describe as the most comfortable beds they have ever slept on, you come down to a fresh, cooked to order English Breakfast with local free range eggs, sausages hand made for us by our local butcher and delicious thick cut bacon from the same butcher. Image also fresh bread (granary and white), and tasty jams and marmalade to spread onto them. Finally we also provide a range of tasty, healthy yogurts to accompany your breakfast. Well imagine no more, if this ticks all your boxes then hit the check availability button and you can look forward to a warm and friendly welcome from your hosts Bob, Lesley & Carla. But it’s not just our fantastic breakfasts that keep our customers returning. Our rooms, which are constantly being refurbished and upgraded, are large and well equipped. Each has a 19″ flat screen free view TV, personal security box, hairdryer, iron & board, free high speed wifi throughout, complimentary tea/coffee (and biscuits) and of course all our rooms are fully en-suite. Also, our bar/lounge is open every evening for your pleasure. All our beds are of an extremely high standard with a deep luxurious mattress covered with a thick quilted topper for that extra bit of comfort. Being so close to everything means that many of our guests park the car for the duration of their stay and either walk into the harbour through Torre Abbey Gardens and along the seafront or use the bus that passes our front door. We are the ideal location for both holiday and business guests. Breakfast. To drink, we have fresh filtered coffee, Tetley tea, fruit teas and fruit juice. We also offer a healthy option of soya milk and fruit. Toast is available from the breakfast bar and we will be along for you to order your choice of cooked breakfast from our menu. We can also provide an early breakfast for guests who want an early start or for guest travelling on business. One of the best locations in Torquay, large rooms, great decor, very comfortable beds and a brilliant breakfast, it doesn’t get much better than the Glendower. Check out our reviews, on any of the booking sites, and of course on Tripadvisor. We look forward to welcoming you to the Glendower Torquay. Your hosts Bob, Lesley & Carla ... more   less
