I've stayed at the Glenlyn many times over the past few years and have probably been booked into most of their rooms by now. As a place to stay on business trips its been perfect. Considering where the hotel is based the value for money is excellent.
The hotel has all you need after a day of work - rooms and linen are clean and tidy, staff are friendly, and the bonus is the free breakfast!. Some reviews have mentioned the old furniture but that seems to add a bit of character to the rooms after a few visit - better than sterile hotel chains.
Location is good for London as its only a short walk from Woodside tube station, and a number of bus routes. If driving parking can be hit and miss in front of hotel, but there is usually on-street parking available at night. Being just off a major road into London is useful as well.
Hotel doesn't serve evening meals but there are a number of options nearby.
I've been fortunate to stay in one of their apartments which would be ideal for a family staying for a trip to London who don't want to eat out each night. The apartments are fully kitted out flats, and have a higher standard of fittings and furniture than the hotel rooms.
The only downside is this hotel is very popular so trying to book at the last minute I often missed out!
