Good Hotel Guide Review

Oh, my fur and whiskers, here’s Wonderland for adults, an Alice-themed hotel on the edge of Dartmoor national park. Public rooms pay homage to British eccentricity, evoking the home of a 19th-century collector and bon vivant, with a red marble bar, leather armchairs, a cigar-smoking room dedicated to Winston Churchill, here a pith helmet, there a wall of china plates, a line of bowler hats, a flamingo skeleton. Bedrooms drip with chandeliers. High-spec bathrooms have under-floor heating, with perhaps a wet-room shower or an egg-shaped bath. The Mad Hatter room has a wall-mounted doll's house. Tweedle Deez has twin four-posters. All rooms have a minibar with complimentary snacks, White Company toiletries – and daily housekeeping by seven maids with seven mops, we like to think. Chefs Ben Palmer and Josh Ackland's locally sourced menus include dishes such as braised beef cheek with horseradish mash, market fish, and confit duck leg with braised red cabbage. You can breakfast on eggs Benedict or American pancakes with crispy bacon, then head out to hunt the snark or explore Dartmoor’s mustard mines.

Comments about Glazebrook House

Quirky decor of countless crystal chandeliers, a horse and an ostrich skeleton and a collection of top hats (sujtable for the Alice bedroom). Very good food, unfussily served in a dining room its walls adorned with plates. All great fun. Dynamic owner/manager much inn evidence. - CR - November 2018
