Reviewed 19 March 2012

Every time we go to London from now on, this is where we shall stay.
The staff are everything you could ask for, friendly, cheerful and helpful.
The breakfast was good with the best sausages I've ever had.
A short walk to the Northern line tube in one direction and a range of restaurants in the other direction.
A bonus was that we were upgraded to an apartment, without our requesting it.

This is a real gem! Tube just a few minutes walk away. Spotlessly clean with a great buffet breakfast in a beautiful conservatory...if you're lucky enough to be there when the weather's warm you can eat breakfast outside in their lovely garden area.

North Finchley shopping is just a stone's throw away, as are some really good restaurants.

Why pay London City prices when this place is such a find - thoroughly recommended, and has the added advantage of free parking too...look no further - you will NOT be disappointed.

Room Tip: If you want a garden view best to book early, but the hotel location is generally quiet.

There is no better place to stay in London than the Glenlyn Guest House in Finchley. If you stay at the Glenlyn you are IN the city, but not pressured by any of the noise, traffic and congestion of downtown London. Yet, via the tube (a few short blocks away), you can get anywhere in London and the rest of the UK quite conveniently from this lovely boutique hotel (or large B & B). We have stayed at the Glenlyn a total of four times, each time better than the previous. We now consider ourselves among the many "regulars" of the place. When our younger son was getting married nearly over a year ago, we needed rooms for 23 family members from outside the UK, including siblings, cousins and even the grandparents, who were both over 90 years of age at the time. Paul (the owner's son and the hotel's manager) and his attentive staff handled all of us and our family's special needs with ease and grace. Our most recent visit during this past Christmas season was just as good as the first few times we have been at Glenlyn. We'll be back!

Room Tip: Always call in advance and speak directly to the staff. Don't rely just on the internet. Also, g...

Stayed here recently. Very impressed. Great value for money. Very near Tube station, Clean and very warm. Staff very pleasant. Great breakfast too. If you're looking for value for money, in a quiet location, close to public transport, with a good breakfast, then you really can't go wrong.

The hotel was very clean. The rooms were very clean and smelt very clean.Lots of hot water and huge towels. 7min walk to the tube.Ample parking and left car all day whilst in centre of London. Lovely big flat screen TV and great hairdryer

Things that need to improve: The quilt in room 6 was in very poor condition...stuffing all bunched up and lumpy. Blanket provided but wasn'nt very clean. It was a shame there was no heat in the bathroom...heated towel rail would do the job well.
A bracket to angle TV to the bed would have been very helpful

Great stay if the bedding had been as lovely as the room.....
Will be back
