We stayed at the Glenlyn just after Christmas, and booked it last minute. It is located well for places of interest in North London such as Alexandra Palace, which is only a 134 bus and a bit of a walk away. We booked last minute as we were due to watch the PDC World Darts Championship at Alexandra Palace and needed accommodation due to the forecast storm, and train problems.
The location is fair (just off the high street) with good travel routes to central and North London. The staff were very polite, and it's a 24hr hotel meaning no creeping in and awkward conversations with the staff after hours as can sometimes be the case. The rooms were an OK size for a short stay. Free WIFI and off street parking was also greatly appreciated.
The double room we stayed in didn't have the most comfortable bed, and the room was a little dated, but it had character. We had a problem with the radiator in room 29, but it was late and we basically only washed and slept in our room due to the short duration of our stay. Because of that we didn't complain. The building is impressive and the local rotary club meet there. The Glenlyn also offer complimentary English or continental breakfast in the conservatory area to the rear of the building.
In all, I would stay here again at short notice, or overnight, due to it's location, value and polite staff. If staying for more than one or two nights I would probably look for something a little roomier, and modern. I think it's good value for money though.
