We chose this hotel from TripAdvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. This is a clean and comfortable hotel, whose owners clearly take a pride in providing great accommodation and a warm and friendly welcome. Each day is given a good start with a very tasty and well-presented breakfast in the pleasant dining room. We have every intention of returning.

Everything in the previous reviews I can confirm is true. Situated in a quiet road not far from the main street and station, the Glendower looks little different to its neighbours. However here is a B&B that would give most large hotels a run for their money in terms of facilities and luxury. I would add to the comments already posted by adding that it was as warm as toast, the bed was large, comfortable (new?) and fitted with good quality linen. The bathroom was spotless and newly decorated with quality towels and toiletries. And all at a very reasonable price.
I would say that Minehead is a base rather than a destination (to be kind). We arrived by train for a change, the last bit on the West Somerset Railway albeit with an annoying bus link from Taunton to Bishop’s Lydeard. Did an open-topped bus trip across Exmoor to Lynmouth, as well as a visit to nearby Dunster Castle. A great short break in a super B&B.

The room was comfortable and clean and mine host friendly and unobtrusive. The breakfast was good with a wide variety of entrees including fresh fruit salad. The room had all the amenities one would expect in this day and age. I would happily stay there again.

Our second stay at the Glendower House this year, and we were not disappointed !!!
The friendly welcome and excellent service together with the extras like the complimentary handmade chocolates were second to none. It is in a good location for the town, sea front and train station so there is a choice of things to do - try a day on the steam train calling at all the stops.... we did it earlier in the year and had a fun day out, even though it was a wet day and had to look for the odd pub or two to shelter in... hic hic

We enjoyed our stay very much. The room was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent and included a range of local produce. There were lots of extras to make us feel even more comfortable such as the handmade chocolates left in our room to welcome us as well as a full range of toiletries. Glendower House is conveniently located and has a private car park. We thoroughly recommend a stay.
