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

I had a very enjoyable stay here. The staff were friendly, especially the breakfast staff; the room was very clean; bed was comfortable and the breakfast was really tasty. I was there on a difficult business trip and it was nice to come back to a comfortable, clean, welcoming place.

My wife and I were looking for accommodation for a visit to see a gig at Alexandra Palace. We wanted a place with free and convenient parking and nothing in central London fitted the bill. This place enabled us to park right outside the guest house !!! Fantastic. Only an apartment was available - so we took that. On arrival... More

We stayed at the hotel since family members live nearby. Its not downtown but about 40 min. From the river, Camden is closer. Station is five min. From the hotel. Rooms are small but sufficient. Breakfast is good, rooms equipped by coffee and tea things.
