Lovely quiet and reasonably priced hotel. Half an hour into central London on the tube. Friendly staff and lovely breakfast. Lovely Italian restaurant 5 mins walk away. We will stay again when visiting London.

We booked this hotel due to its proximity to the tube station, reviews online and the modest charge for accomodation. The staff were friendly, helpful and courteous throughout the establishment. Our rooms were clean, spacious and well equipped. And the breakfast that greeted us in the morning was all you would expect to set you off on a really good... More

This was my first stay at the Glenlyn. It came highly recommended by friends who live in the area and were unable to have us stay with them. We were in a triple room with 3 single beds. Perfect for an aunt traveling with her nieces. We had a problem with the plumbing in out first room,so were moved to... More

Clean basic room, comfortable, on top floor - loft conversion, long hike up the stairs with bags - not too convenient. Service in bar & restaurant for breakfast was very good. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Over the past 4 years the Glenlyn has become our preferred hotel when visiting London. Why? In terms of value for money we never found a better hotel: the rooms are comfortable and clean, staff is very helpful and friendly and breakfast is delicious. But also the location of the hotel is a big plus: close to the M25 and... More

We stayed here for one night whilst visiting our daughter who lives in London. The communal areas of the hotel are really clean although the stair carpet was quite badly stained in places. Our room was quite dated and ready for a refurb but was spotlessly clean apart from one of the towels hanging on the rail looked like it... More

Stayed here last night as a base for going to Alexandra Palace which is not far at all. I also used to live in this area when I was at University. I stayed with my wife in room 18. It's situated in the attic space (loft conversion) but is very cosy and chic! It has an en-suite shower and an... More

We had two triple rooms, 1 with 3 single beds, 1 with a single and a double. Both had ample space, clean, airy and comfortable bedding. Bathrooms were adequate but a little tired. Breakfast offered a fair choice. No soya milk though - bring your own if you need it. Good place to stay if you need a night or... More
