Will be great when renovations are complete. - Rating 4/5

We stayed for five nights. John and Kelly were excellent hosts. Dining area and bar very comfortable. Lovely garden and pool area. Breakfast was excellent. Only one complaint our Room Dittisham was very dated and worn. Ensuite very small with a very noisy toilet cistern.We understand the rooms are in the process of being updated and it would have been great to have been offered a room change as one came up during our stay. We wish John and Kelly all the best for the future. for the future.

lovely short stay - Rating 5/5

Just got back from a 4 night stay at the glenorleigh and wished we could have stayed longer. My husband and i had a premier room with a 4 poster bed and the room was lovely, our seventeen year old daughter had her own en-suite double and we only paid for a single room for her, so we were more than happy with that. The lounge and bar area and dining area were also really nice , as was the heated pool. The breakfasts were truly excellent with a fruit salad and a full english. The hotel itself was located perhaps just a little further away from the harbour area than we had anticipated ,but it helped to walk off that lovely breakfast and walking in was all downhill, and taxi back if legs were tired was only a fiver. The whole experience was really good and hard to find fault with. Owners were very friendly , hotel was very good value for money. Would certainly stay there again.


Thank you for taking the time to give us a review and we are very glad you enjoyed your stay.Kind regardsKelly & John

amazing people and hotel - Rating 5/5

Booked last minute so didn't expect anything special. Boy was I wrong. Stunning location not far to the beach and town centre.That aside Kelly and John were the best hosts, not only making everyone feel welcome but truly part of their family. There is nothing that is too much trouble and they often pre empt what you need. I have never returned to any hotel but I did this one the next weekend. I can't wait to go back again absolutely amazing.

Excellent value - Rating 4/5

We only spent one night but Kelly and John made us feel very welcome. Our single rooms were clean and comfortable night. Breakfast was very nice (the fresh fruit salad was particularly nice). We didn't use the pool, but it did look nice and I imagine is very refreshing on warm summer days. I have no reservations about recommending The Glenorleigh.

an excellent stay - Rating 5/5

An amazing stay. Catching a morning train, we arrived earlier than our check-in time, yet our room was already prepared. A quiet stay, followed by a great breakfast served at out table the next morning. Since there was no follow up booking for the room we were allowed to extend our check out time. A friendly and relaxed atmosphere indeed!
