Thank you for you review. (The following response is directed at The husband of the review) .We were of course concerned about the distortion of the facts as you saw them. However there were plenty of witnesses to your actions over the short period of your stay. It should be said that you had stayed at The Lynwood before without... More

Our hosts, Terry and Helen, were friendly and gave us a lot of useful information. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wished it could have been longer than one night. The location is near to the Morrab sub-tropical gardens which were fantastic to visit and to the promenade. The room spotlessly clean and quiet. Breakfast was also very good (fresh... More

This is a tiny guest house but the rooms though small are comfortable and clean. The owners are very welcoming and the breakfast yummy! If I was going to be negative which is hard I would have liked a later start for breakfast, we got back late from The Minack theatre the night before and were 'knackered' but I guess... More

The hosts were very welcoming and helpful, gave us a lot of useful information. The rooms were lovely and very clean. Breakfast was good, delicious fruit cup. The location is great so close to the promenade. All in all a nice place to stay and good value.

What a wonderful guesthouse The Lynwood is. Everywhere is immaculate and very comfortable. I stayed in a single room overnight,on the way to see my Sister and family in Newlyn,and actually had a view of the sea. Lots of personal touches in the room made it the best stay I've had anywhere in a long time. A mug,plenty of teabags... More

Giving straight 5's is not my usual style, or because I'm idle. It's just that there's usually something about a place that could be improved or wasn't quite right. However, in this case I'm at a loss as to how The Lynwood could be improved or faulted. We only stayed one night en route to IoS, but wil certainly return... More
