I have stayed at the Glenlyn twice. On our first visit the room was more modern and the bathroom was in good condition. On the second visit our room was furnished with well worn antiques and the tub had some water damage and the toilet did not flush well. The rooms are clean and adequate. When I am in London... More

The hotel is little dated and could do with a bit of a makeover. A few little signs of wear and tear. Chips in the enamel in the bath and in the sink. Dent in the bathroom door and veneer peeling off a chest of drawers. There was a hot iron mark on the carpet and a few tea stains... More

I had contacted the hotel prior to my stay, enquiring as to whether or not they would be able to offer disabled access. They ensured me that my stay would be comfortable and would be adjusted with my needs in mind. I believed them, in good faith. I also requested for the hotel to provide a taxi company that would...

The apartment was large... More

A family run hotel that is lovely and clean. Staff are friendly and helpful and available 24 hours a day. There is a wide choice for breakfast. Daily room clean, fresh towels etc. Short walking distance from underground station/buses into central London.

Very friendly old fashioned hotel in a beautiful building and setting. But of a tight squeeze around the bed although plenty of room elsewhere. My only quibble is the bar which had no draft beers or lager only bottles . This necessitated a walk to the Tally Ho which was brill as I had a good laugh with the lads... More

Great hotel with excellent customer service, very clean rooms. We are a family of 3 and we stayed for 1 night in the family room, which was great in all respects.

The receptionist was very nice on arrival. I was disappointed as they didn't serve food in the eve after arriving late. I had called and was told it was 24/7 but must've been a miscommunication. The room was basic but functional and clean. The faux wooden floor made us be conscious of the noise. Replacing the room doors would be... More
