“Fab room, fantastic location and free parking made this place a treat.”
Reviewed 16 December 2013

As we were visiting Harry Potter Studios at the end of the weekend we needed somewhere close and with free parking. Glenlyn served both these needs and was incredibly cheap compared to its peers so we booked. What a great decision! It is easy to get to as we avoided the London congestion. The room was lovely and very clean. The reception was 24 hour so when we arrived back at 1am (on the second to last tube on a Saturday night) we were let straight back in. You can see the tube station down the street from the hotel and the walk is at most 5 minutes making getting into London very easy. The breakfast in the morning had everything you could want. I myself was partial to the excellent bacon and sausages but there were tons of cereals, croissants etc. The hotel was fully booked while we there so don't delay in booking if you're considering it.

Perhaps we got the small, dud room in this hotel—it was not like those pictured on the website and in their brochure. Clean, but needed paint on the scratched doors. A pleasure to find a hotel room with windows that open, and we appreciated the full-sized tub-shower in the otherwise small bathroom. The breakfast room is nice, and looks out on a lovely garden. Friendly staff and off-street parking a plus.

I booked this based on other TripAdvisor reviews and certainly wasn't disappointed. My telephone enquiry was dealt with quickly and politely and email confirmation quickly followed. Upon arrival the receptionist was very welcoming and extremely helpful, giving me advice on local restaurants and shops. My room was large and clean with good quality bed linen and ... a most welcome surprise ... proper big fluffy towels. Proper sized bath towels, not those tiny little hand towels you get in other places but big wrap yourself-in towels to dry yourself. Breakfast was a generous help-yourself with plenty to choose from and helpful and polite service. It's details like that which mean I will certainly stay here again (have already booked for January). Well done Glenlyn.

We have just come back from a weekend stay at the Glenlyn guesthouse. What a wonderful find! Parking free. The staff were brilliant ,the rooms were clean ,warm, quiet and comfortable as well as well equipped and modern. The breakfast was delicious with a choice of croissants,buns,cereal,fruit,yogurt and full cooked breakfast. Its a five minute walk from the tube station in a very safe and well lit area. Its also located near to a variety of restaurants - Indian,Thai,Italian,Greek if you prefer to stay in the area. Sainsburys is also 2 minutes away if you have forgotten anything for your stay. 25 minute walk to cinema too. Overall a fantastic stay and will be booking again.

Room Tip: We were in an attic room - no 18. Can hear traffic noise slightly but very quiet otherwise.

The Glenlyn is a hidden jewel. Location is superb if you want to be on the Northern Line. A few minutes walk away.The staff are most curtious and helpful. The rooms are most comfortable. The breakfast are served in a beautiful room faces the rear garden. A magnificent sight to go along with the wonderful breakfast. The High Street is only a few steps away. The price of the room are really a bargain! It is our favorite location for when we have to be in North London!

Room Tip: I think all of the rooms are most comfortable.
