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

Just about everything you would want for a few days away. Nice clean room, great breakfasts, with lots of choice and friendly people. The central location was a boon as the weather wasn't very kind whilst we were there.

What a lovely night away we had on Saturday. Bob and Lesley treated us as if we were the only guests staying, nothing too much trouble and only too pleased to accommodate our wishes. The room, a superior, had no signs of anyone else ever staying there, it was so clean and fresh.

Hello Bob W we do have a wheelchair accessible room but our dining room is down stairs. Level access from the side entrance to the room is fine but breakfast could be a problem. If you can cope with that please let me know dates and I will check availability for you. Many thanks Bob P
