What do you mean, IF we are back in Torquay? You have to come back, you need more jam :-)
You were the perfect guests and it was a pleasure to look after you for almost 2 weeks, the place is not the same without you.
Glad you got home safe and sound and hope you are now recovered from the very long journey, you win the prize for the furthest UK travelled guests. What's the prize? 2 pots of apple & blackcurrent jam but, you have to collect.
Thank you both for your review and we all hope you do make it back to Torquay one day.
Very best wishes
Bob, Lesley & Carla

this was our first stay in a bed and breakfast accommodation, until now we have always stayed in Hotels, we were greeted with a very warm and friendly welcome, the cleanliness and quality of the room was exceptional the service throughout our stay was outstanding, great breakfast with a personal touch, superbly laid out dinning room,
our overall experience and stay in the Glendower was excellent, ( highly recommended), we are certainly planning on returning later this year and hopefully for many years to come

Bob, Lesley and Carla made us most welcome from the time we set foot in Glendower until the time we left. The room was prestine. The breakfast was out of this world, all locally sourced ingredients. Very friendly evenings were spent with our hosts in a well stocked intimate bar, an all round exceptional hostelry.

Room tip: All ground floor rooms have easy access to car park, side and front

Brilliant break, exceptional hostelry! Our job is done.
Thank you Terry & Sue but we have to say that you made it very easy for us, we haven't laughed as much since you left, you were great fun and will always be most welcome here at the Glendower.
Don't leave it too long.
Hope the BBQ went well when you got home.
Very best wishes & thanks for your review.

We have just returned from a wonderful short break at the Glendower. The rooms were spotless and well decorated, bathrooms modern and well equipped and the beds extremely comfortable. Breakfast was delicious with a good choice of cereal, fruit and cooked food. The eggs Glendower were gorgeous. Perfectly located for the town, harbour and beaches we were able to park the car and stroll to wherever we fancied. All of this coupled with owners for whom nothing was too much trouble made this a favourite that we shall definitely visit again and again.

What a brilliant review, thank you Catherine.
It's the wonderful comments like yours and the many others since we've been here that helps other travellers get some idea of what they can expect at the Glendower. Lets hope we don't run out of energy before the season finishes.
Hope to see you all again soon.
Best regards and thanks again.
