“Close to tube”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

Very basic b&b , lots of narrow stairs to lug bags, no one to help. Bathroom not great, terrible shower in bath. Breakfast ok ,standard.
Best thing about hotel was parking and proximity to the northern line tube.

We recently stayed here as it had good reviews and was located close (3 miles) to a relative we were visiting. It was just what I wanted. Room 24 was on the back so nice and quiet and was a large sized room with a big bed. Generous stocks of tea and coffee and toiletries. We used the 134 bus route which runs 24h our and was very convenient for Muswell Hill and Highgate. Breakfast was in a lovely conservatory and was very nice. The staff were very helpful especially in response to email queries. I would highly recommend and look forward to staying here again.

Room Tip: I liked room 24 but is up quite a lot of stairs

We recently used this hotel to visit family in North London, as well as do all the 'sites' in central London. The place calls itself a Guest House, although the facilities are more akin to that available at a Hotel.
The rooms were comfortable, immaculately clean, with all the usual facilities you would expect: Landline telephone, flat screen TV, tea and coffee making facilities, etc. The en suite bathroom had everything that you would expect, including a nice selection of complimentary shampoo, conditioner and body wash. The shower was a good decent pressure which is sometimes lacking in hotels.
The breakfast is a self service buffet. Croissants, pastries, fruit, cereals and all you can eat cooked breakfast. Plenty of tea, coffee and toast on demand. Great if you're not eating for the rest of the day. All good quality, and mountainous quantities.
On the first night we used the bar and sat out in the garden. The selection at the bar was limited, but not a key feature of the hotel. Sitting in the garden and sipping a beer it was difficult to believe that you were only 30 mins by tube from central London.
All in all a comfortable stay in a guest house which could easily qualify as a hotel. Thoroughly recommended.

Room Tip: The front of the hotel can be a bit noisy at night with passing traffic to and from Woodside Park un...

My husband & I stayed here whilst visiting London to see a show.

The location is great as it's only a 5 minute walk to the tube station which goes straight to Tottenham court road where we got off to see we will rock you.

The hotel staff were very helpful & friendly.

The hotel was clean & well presented.

The room was relatively small but beautifully laid out with a very comfortable bed & linen.
The shower was large & spacious with plenty of hot water.
There were even complimentary toiletries.

Highly recommended guest house & we'll definitely use it again whilst visiting London.

A pleasant and clean guest house which has excellent parking and easy access to the Tube. Good breakfast, friendly staff and quiet at night. Good value for money. The guest house also has a bar and lounge area with Wi-Fi

We have stayed at the Glenlyn Hotel three times now, when staying in London for family celebrations. The rooms are always clean and comfortable and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. It's not The Ritz, nor does it want to be. But I would recommend it to anyone who wants to stay in north London. The bed and breakfast rate was £80 a night and the breakfasts were very good indeed. It is also only a 5-minute walk from Woodside Park tube station for access to central London and it's 50 yards from shops, cafes and restaurants on High Road (the A1000, Great North Road).
