Read our REVIEWS

Glendower is a comfortable guest house situated just a few minutes walk from the seafront. Our lovely accommodation is set in a Georgian property which was originally built as two residential villas in 1907. The 800 year old Torre Abbey is just a few minutes walk away and we are also close to the train station at Torquay. Our 14 rooms include single, standard double, twin or superior doubles and family rooms over two floors, the ground and first floor. 

Ian & Janette Sampayo took over the Glendower in July 2020, having moved to Torbay from Epsom in Surrey. They have worked in hospitality for many years running a restaurant, developing an outside catering company and also working in and around London for a contract catering company. 

We are open through most of the year, welcoming solo travellers, business people, couples and families. By special request we do accept well-behaved pets but this must be agreed with Ian or Janette in advance as we only allow one or two animals at anyone time. 

For other residents this may mean that there could be dogs here during your stay, if you have a severe allergy to dogs please let us know so that we can ensure your stay is comfortable.
