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

The hotel is essentially a terrace of townhouses with parking to the front of each (no problems with availability of parking when we visited). It's located off the high street, so close to local facilities, underground etc. We opted for Apartment 2 which was more expensive than the regular rooms but proved to be top notch quality, and a very...

We wanted a guest house with parking, not too far from the M25 in North London as we were driving on to Lowestoft the next day, but we also wanted easy access to Central London as we had tickets for a show. This place fitted the bill. Our room at the top was lovely, very spacious, comfy bed, great shower,... More

I chose this Guest House as my daughter and her family live 5 minutes walk away, so was very convenient to get to her each morning and then back again at night time. It was so easy to get to from Waterloo Station into Woodside Park tube station which is just down the road. This was my first time staying... More

Myself and my fiancée stayed at The Glenlyn in late December 2014 as we were looking for somewhere close to the Alexandra Palace as we had tickets for the darts. If you are planning a similar trip next year I would recommend The Glenlyn as a base, as a taxi is only £12-£20. Also, it is outside of the London... More
