One night stay on a Saturday. Selected this guest house based on trip advisor reviews and not disappointed. On arrival upgraded to an apartment, which was in a house two doors down from the main guest house, free off-road parking (with permit) directly in front of the house. The apartment was clean and spacious. The only critique on the cleanliness... More

We wanted to be close to London but to stay in a quieter location and this hotel was perfect. The tube station directly into London is just at the end of the road so it was really easy getting to and from the centre. Camden town is also only two stops away. The hotel was in a leafy suburb and... More

Breakfast was top notch, buffet style. Comfortable clean room, larger than expected for London. Tube station close by. Sainsburys at the top of the street on the main high street, as is a good pu to eat.

My daughter and I have just returned from her graduation at the Middlesex University and we had chosen to stay at the Glenlyn Guest House which looked superb and Victorian looking. In fact we were not disappointed because it is close enough to the centre of London ( Woodside tube station is down the same road) and it only took... More

We stayed at this guest house for 2 nights B&B during the 2014 London Marathon. We found the staff to be welcoming and friendly and there was a variety of choice for breakfast but the room we had was at the very top of the building, up about 4 flights of stairs, which was really small and uncomfortable and it...

Stayed one night, it was ok for the price. Clean and not too run down at all. Some rooms a bit pokey with no windows you could see out of but wouldn't see much anyway. Breakfast fine and staff good. I would stay there again if I needed to stay in the area again

We've just returned from our third visit to Glenlyn - a family run hotel in North London. The staff are very friendly, helpful, cannot do enough to make your stay as good as it can be. There are the odd places where the decor could be touched up, but the place is spotless and ultra comfortable , with a bar... More

My husband and I traveled to London for our anniversary. We wanted a place outside the city so we could have more of an experience. I found Glenlyn Guest House, and am so glad I did. Although the room was up a few flights of stairs and was a bit small, the overall atmosphere made up for it. Be prepared... More

Why is there such a shortage of accommodation in Barnet? I guess you only notice if you have to go there. I was there on business. All places close by were booked up - so it was down to this place. Ok - wifi - yes worked well. Iron, yes - provided. Poached eggs at breakfast - massive fail. What... More
