The Glenbourne Hotel advertises itself as 4 diamond guest accommodation. I’m not sure I would call it 4 Diamond, but if you are looking for a clean traditional seaside bed and breakfast, in a good location, it meets the mark.
The furniture is dated, varied in style and not of the highest standard, but it is in working order. The carpets are a bit tired, the breakfast tables are “cosy”, and the breakfast adequate.
The host Jan is friendly and helpful and has on hand a good selection of information on the local area. She also kindly recommended some local restaurants, and the area has a good variety.
The highlight of this hotel is it’s location close to Alum Chine (a beautiful wooded walk), and the few minutes walk to the sandy lovely beach, where you will find a fantastic Italian restaurant “Vesuvius” right by the beach. We spent a lovely evening here, watching the sun go down, whilst having a fantastic meal.
