Heard this hotel had a chinese food menu so thought we would try it. It really wasn't very good. Chef needs to educatehimself on how to cook chinese dishes. Good that he is trying something different but he needs to do better.

The experience in this cozy hotel could have been much better. It is a cute place, with a Victorian ambiance and decoration ( either you like or you dont ). However, the service is not good at all and the price ( hidden taxe and co ) is exorbitant. Plus, In a 10 degre night, while we arrived, the shower...

Although this is an historic hotel with colonial character, it is not advised to either spend the night or have dinner there. The rooms are run down and the (mainly chinese) food is average, served in small overpriced portions, and full of tricky hidden charges. The prices are held ridiculously high, and you will get the same or better kind...

Nice clean cozy hotel. Actually a old British Bunglow. Food and serivce is good. I was with wife for two nights in December, a simple stay we enjoyed a lot. The bar is very nice. There is a Thai and Indian restaurant just next door, very good quality food.

We enjoyed the room and bar, but had to argue with the manager about what we had and hadn't paid for. We'd asked for an extra bed and didn't appreciate his intimation that we still had to pay for it. Sweet and sour chicken was great as were the noodles. Be sure to stick with Chinese style food in the...

We booked this hotel because it was a love crush of the lonely planet. What a disappointment. A room paid 100US$ the night for : - no hot water, no pressure : at 5 am, on the way to the world's end, we informed the management that there was no hot water in the room. At noon, when we came...

Stayed at the Glendower for one night in December 2016. We were in Room 2 which is an enormous en-suite twin with beautiful views out over the English-style country garden. We were charmed by the Glendower from the moment we arrived; it is a small, mainly single storey Edwardian mock-Tudor building which would not look out of place in England's...

This hotel looked great from the outside when we arrived, it was just after Christmas and so was covered in cute festive lights - very welcoming. Our first hour or so continued that way, when you enter they were preparing the open fire and took us to our nice room (with hot water, yippie!). Unfortunately food was rubbish. My wife...
