Trevor greeted us at the front door with a smile, even though we had a late check in. Our room was very comfortable with great views out over the water. Had a hearty breakfast every morning served by very friendly staff. We left before breakfast on our last day. Trevor made us a bag lunch for our trip. Glentower was a great choice.
