The owners Cliff. and Daph. have a wealth of experience gained over many years. Five star accommodation, everything you could possibly need. The breakfasts are wonderful. There is also parking space on site, which is an absolute bonus.

We visit the bay at least twice a year and have heard a lot about Glen-Lyn, so this year we decided to book in for a stay over two nights and see how it was. As expected, the Bed and Breakfast is more than you could ask for, with free parking, wifi, the cleanest of rooms, comfy beds and an... More

Just back from a long weekend in Robin Hoods Bay and of course a return visit to Glen-Lyn. So much could be said about the hosts, the facilities, the cleanliness, the breakfast, the location, on site parking, etc - but all you need to know is that this is the best B&B around; everything about the place and owners is...

All the rooms are well presented. Room 4 is particularly good with a separate sitting area. Superb breakfast. Conveniently the bus stops outside for Whitby and Scarborough. Lots to see and plenty of places to eat ( and drink )

Immaculate b&b, friendly and attentive hosts, and an excellent breakfast. Can't recommend Glen Lyn enough. This was our 2nd visit and we will definitely be back! Also has its own car park which is a bonus in Robin Hood's Bay.

A short weekend turned into a long weekend for us, visiting one of our favourite places Robin Hoods Bay. There was only one place we could choose to stay and that's Glen-Lyn B & B. There are lots of reasons to stay here. It's in a prime spot in the village; it has guaranteed parking (a must have if you... More

We visited this b&b on the recommendation of friends. We were not disappointed. Cliff and Daphne were friendly and welcoming hosts. The room was spacious and well furnished and the breakfasts were great. There is a lovely well tended garden too. If we visit Robin Hoods Bay again, we will certainly stay here.

We've been visiting RHB for years and seen this place and wondered what it might be like. Well, our imaginings just weren't imaginative enough. From the moment you arrive you are made to feel special. Your bags are carried in and you are treated like royalty. The entrance hall gives some indication of the uniqueness of this lovely B&b.

We stayed at Glen-Lyn three years ago (it only seems like yesterday - doesn't time fly?), and immediately felt like we were back home again (only better than home!) An immaculately-kept property located on a lovely part of the Yorkshire coast, and most important of all, with excellent, welcoming hosts, Cliff and Daphne. Needless to say, we hope to return...
