Summary: Originally two separate lodging houses/apartments - 3 Victoria Terrace was Ocean View House and No 4 was 'Snowdon House'. No 4 was run by a Mrs W H Kensit up until 1882 when she moved into the larger No 4.

One of them seems to have become the Glengower before 1934, but the 25-inch map of 1969 indicates that 3 and 4 were still separate.

They were combined into a single hotel in the 1970s?

Known as the Glen it was one of a very few bars on the Promenade and was popular with students.
