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

We found this lovely b and b to be excellent. The accommodation was immaculate and spotlessly clean. The room was large, with a very comfy bed and spacious en suite shower room. The breakfast was delicious and piping hot. Cliff and Daphne made us feel very welcome and were very friendly and helpful. Will definitely be staying here again very... More

Our first stay in Robin Hood's Bay and I think we have hit the mark at our first attempt. The Glenlyn is a brilliant B&B. Everything one could possibly want at a very reasonable price. The standards of cleanliness were absolutely spot on, the facilities in the room catered for every need and the breakfasts were perfectly targeted for any... More

Another excellent weekend in an excellent B&B if you want a good B&B then this is the one best In town. Welcoming,friendly and Cleanest place you'll find with a great breakfast that will last you all day. 10min taxi into Whitby or bus outside the gate that will take you up or down the coast
