The Glynmill Inn has been satisfying the traveling public for 90 years!

by Keith and Heather Nicol
    This year the Glynmill Inn celebrates 90 years in the hospitality business catering to both local Corner Brook residents and visitors alike with its old world charm. The Glynmill Inn was built in a distinctive tudor style and currently includes 78 hotel rooms, 2 restaurants, meeting rooms and other amenities. It was designed by architect, Andrew Cobb of Halifax in 1923 and was turned into a hotel a year later.

The Glynmill Inn is known for its distinctive architecture

      Besides its outstanding architecture, another great feature of the Glynmill Inn is its location which is adjacent to the Glynmill Inn Pond as well as numerous walking trails. Although it is near the centre of Corner Brook it enjoys a fabulous park- like setting. 
The Glynmill Inn has numerous walking trails nearby

We have enjoyed taking visitors to the Glynmill Inn for years to see its well kept grounds and to enjoy a meal in the Carriage Room Restaurant. We often walk around one of the Corner Brook stream trails which wind next to the Glynmill Inn property and we think it is especially scenic in the fall.
Glynmill Inn Pond is very picturesque in the fall
      On a recent evening we enjoyed a walk around the pond and then had a superb meal at the Glynmill Inn’s renowned Wine Cellar Restaurant.  The Wine Cellar is known for its steaks and we ordered the popular filet mignon and strip loin steaks. Both were very tender and they come with your choice from a variety of homemade steak sauces as well as oven roasted potatoes and vegetables. We had a tasty avocado and tomato salad and delicious seafood chowder to start.  Later the dessert menu had lots of tempting options and even though we were very full we couldn’t resist splitting an order of tarts ,one bakeapple and the other partridge berry. If you want to have a fine meal out you can’t go wrong with the Wine Cellar. For more information on the Glynmill Inn contact :
