There's a reason why this place had a perfect set of 'excellent' scores... It's perfect! One night (last minute) stay. Prefect location, across the road from the best restaurant, 3 min walk into the bay. The cleanest rooms we've ever seen - full of all the essentials you'll ever need (plus more). Prefect full English breakfast to top it off.... More

Just back from another great stay at this excellent Bed & Breakfast; shame I could only be there for 3 nights. Food - Excellent Accommodation - Excellent Owners - Excellent You get the picture... This really is the best Bed & Breakfast around.

A 2 day 1 night stay at Glen-Lyn just me and the Mrs. Daphne and Cliff made us very welcome and they have thought of everything to make your stay more than pleasureable. The room was dressed to an outstanding level and was spotlessly clean, all the furniture was comfortable and the bed was lovely and comfy. The outside area... More

The owners could give some of the so called four star hotels a few lessons on customer service. It's a modern well maintained bed and breakfast. Our room was more like a suite with seperate lounge area. Fantastic all round.

This accomodation never fails to impress as it is spotless year in and year out never showing any detioration as the owners work so hard and are clearly perfectionists as the interior and exterior is second to none. The garden would win an award for its sheer beauty and colour. You always get a warm welcome. I cannot find one... More

Each time we have visited Glenlyn Guest House there has always been a genuinely warm welcome from both Daphne and Cliffe. The accommodation is exceptional; beautifully presented, immaculate and very comfortable. Everything on the breakfast menu is beautifully cooked by Daphne and always presented and served cheerfully and politely by Cliff. The garden is beautiful any time of year and... More

We stayed at Glen-Lyn after a colleague's glowing recommendation, and he was right - it is absolutely excellent. The whole place is immaculate; our room was spotlessly clean with a lovely warm and comfortable ensuite (also immaculate and spotless). The room contained everything we required including slippers and dressing gown, and there is also a machine in the reception area... More

Having stayed elsewhere previously we will now always seek to return to Glen-Lyn. Rooms are comfortable, spacious and immaculate. Breakfast and breakfast room great. Nice not having to make breakfast selection the night before. Location ideal. Service from booking through to departure is friendly and efficient. A really welcoming place to stay. It is the attention to detail that sets... More

Just returned from our latest visit of many to the wonderful Glen-Lyn in Robin Hoods Bay. We've said it before, but can't praise Daphne & Cliff enough for the whole experience of staying in their lovely home. There simply is nothing to fault, 1st class accommodation, fabulous breakfast and all the truly personal touches. Thank you again Daph & Cliff,... More
