    Glenthorne is a lovely place, i have been there many times before. The location is in a superb setting with magnificent views on 3 sides, but also close to town. The staff are very friendly and accommodating and meals of a high standard.

    Would have liked a radio in the bedroom but its not the end of the world not having one in there.
