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.

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

Stayed for one night on our annual trip to the Scillies. Terry's greeting was efficient but pleasant, and he was clearly intent on helping us to make the most of our short stay, both within the house & around the area. All aspects of the accommodation were better than average, with the breakfast room being exceptional - in detail more... More

Stayed here for a night either side of our trip to the Isles of Scilly. The house is in a very nice location, very quiet road just a couple of minutes walk away from the shore and just a quick drive to the quay or rail station. It also has the beautiful Morrab Gardens across the street. The house itself... 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.
