Stayed 3 nights at this lovely B&B and could not have asked for more, nothing was too much trouble. Terry has lots of local knowledge and is more than happy to give points of interest to make your stay more enjoyable. The room was clean and comfortable, the breakfasts are lovely, well worth a visit

From the moment we were greeted at the door we were made to feel welcome. After sowing us the dining room ( which is just beautiful), and explaining the breakfast routine,Terry showed us to our room. The room was lovely,spotlessly clean, with a beautiful big bay window, all the bed and bath linen were of very high quality,the special touches.....fresh... More

Stayed here on last night of walking trip. It is a lovely old Victorian house, with clean and comfortable rooms and a good host. Terry was very efficient at getting restaurant and taxis organised. He even did us a special light early breakfast, as we were getting the ferry. No wifi, as the granite walls are too thick. Good value... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in The Lynwood for three days, and I have to say, it was perfect. The Victorian decor was just lovely, and our room had immense style and comfort. The hosts are so friendly, warm, welcoming, and also very knowledgeable and helpful. Everything was clean, and the breakfasts are catered to basically whatever YOU want. We... More

We stayed at the Lynwood 18th til 20th May, and found it to be very very comfortable and good value for money. We stayed in a double room on the first floor above the dining room, it was vey quiet and spotlessly clean, all white bedding and towels, not to be faulted in any way. Tea making facilities with fresh... More

The Lynwood is in a great location with some fantastic parks, the museum, and the waterfront nearby, with a whole host of restaurants to choose from within walking distance. What we liked: very clean, comfortable beds, nice selection of drinks and biscuits in the room, good housekeeping service, great food at breakfast time, average price for stay, attention to detail...

Thank you for taking the time to send us your review. You obviously have not understood the meaning of the word Guest House. These houses were not purpose built as Guest Houses but as a family home which is what we and most other Guest Houses are. Therefore insulation is as you would find in a family home. Our breakfast...

The Lynwood was a lovely place to stay. Both Terry and Helen were very friendly and helpful. The accommodation was spotless and comfortable. The tea tray in my room included my favourite KitKat ... thank you. Breakfast was excellent...a great start to the day.

We stayed at the Lynwood for two nights in a double en-suite room. I'm not generally a huge fan of B&Bs as I prefer the anonymity of a big hotel, but my partner likes them and, being German, he finds them very traditional and British! The Lynwood is very easy to find and enjoys a good location on a quiet... More
