Positive Reviews

Many, many repeat visitors

The reviews of Glen-Lyn were overwhelmingly positive, and listed many aspects that guests simply loved about the B&B. But perhaps the most positive one was also a bit hidden. It was that a large number of guests reviewing mentioned that they were repeat visitors. It seems that guests who often take their holidays in Robin Hoods Bay and have stayed at Glen-Lyn once, very often come back again and again.

Excellent location

Though Robin Hoods Bay is quite small, many guests say that Glen-Lyn's position in it is simply perfect. Some even say that once they've arrived, and parked their car in the on-site parking they hardly need to use the car again - unless they want to go touring the moors.

Tranquil oasis

Though Robin Hoods Bay isn't described as unpleasant in any way, it is quite compact and busy. So there seems to be a certain amount of somewhat frantic energy in the air as visitors rush to and fro. Some guests mentioned that Glen-Lyn served as their oasis in this environment. The gardens, especially, were a great spot to unwind and relax away from the hubbub.

Negative Reviews

Extremely high expectations

Glen-Lyn really does attract pretty much no bad reviews. About the only thing that can be mentioned is that, since the reviews are so positive, some guests create the sort of extreme expectations that cannot be met. Had they not been exposed to the overwhelmingly positive reviews they concede that they would have actually been happier.
