I've just left Lynn's after a 4 week stay while working at the hospital. If you're a medical student, don't stay anywhere else. It's by far the best place on the island. The house is really lovely, and the pool area is great, although not in the sun very much! The rooms are a little basic, mainly as our ensuite... More

From the welcome, to the meals to the staff - a great place to stay. It is like staying with family for all the right reasons. Marvellous breakfast, friendly staff, great evening meals of fusion cooking. Lynn's Getaway is used by medical students on section. They can be a rowdy bunch, although friendly and abide by the house rules. Try... More

We only stayed one night, our last before flying home, and if we had know how fantastic it was we would have extended our stay. We were immediately greeting with the Samoan love and welcoming that we received were ever we went. The "house" is amazing, and the current guests staying during our visit ranged from medical students to a... More

Lynn's Getaway is rated the number one B&B in Samoa. We can't for the life of us think why. And especially why it is rated above the Amanaki, which is only $A7 or $A8 more. Perhaps because it is generally filled with medical students and backpackers? Middle aged couples beware! To begin with, we had to wait on the front... More

Excellent customer service, comfortable room, very good location, delicious food, very friendly staff, and many more good reasons why we really enjoyed staying in this place. If you are planning to make frequent visits to the Baha'i House of Worship, and experience the serenity and spirituality unique to that place, we recommend getting the room + car deal at the... More

This was a really lovely place to stay where the staff are welcoming and friendly, the food is lovely and generous, the rooms clean and spacious, a library stocked with books to read, a pool to cool off in, all in a great location with a bus stop across the road and a shop and atm around the corner.

I stayed at Lynn's for 8 weeks during my medical student clinical elective in Samoa and had an awesome time. I am glad I chose Lynn's for my stay as we were advised by the Uni to stay at Tatiana's which is located just done the road and doesn't come close to comparing with the quality of service, staff, accommodation...

I stayed at Lynn's for the four weeks of my medical elective in Samoa, and really didn't want to leave! All of the medical students in Samoa came to Lynn's for dinner on a Thursday night, due to Paulos fantastic cooking and our large dining area- it ended up being the social hub of the island for us!
