About the hotel

Glenville Hotel

The weather was a little wet for the first few days, but the welcome and presentation of the accommodation was so warming, cosy and homely that the weather made no difference to the experience.

Pete and Jayne made us very welcome with homemade cake in the hallway, mince pies, biscuits and ginger wine in our room. A great time, lots of shopping and even saw a film at the local picture house. All in all a great experience and will be going back in June.
