We spent 7 nights at the Glenlyn Hotel. The rooms are basic, and clean. They offer a free breakfast every morning in a beautiful garden room and they are only a 5 minute walk to the Hotel from the tube stop and it is only a 30 minute tube ride to downtown London. The staff was friendly, helpful and professional.... More

We are staying in a beautiful, large clean apartment that is part of the Glenlyn Hotel. The rooms are much nicer than we had expected (the pictures on the hotel website don't do it justice) The staff is really willing and super-helpful. Breakfast is nicely laid out and lots of choice. Really impressed with this little hotel!

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
