I have all intentions of returning but... More

Our family stayed at Lyness for a long weekend and had a lovely time! The rooms were very clean & tidy and it was a short walk into town and to the sea. Highlight had to be the breakfast! David & Val couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome. Thank you!

The rooms are spotlessly clean, lovely and well decorated and the cooked breakfasts are amazing. I stayed in a family room with my 5 year old daughter and it was perfect. I... More

On the down side the bed was rather squeaky and the room was a tad small. The room was hot due to the glorious weather and... More

We have stayed here so many times its about time we gave it the review it deserves. Lovely guest house which is conveniently situated. It's a few minute walk to the beautiful park with boats and a chinese water garden. The beach is 5 minutes away and the town is within walking distance. Its clean and the bedrooms are good... More
