Well located in Apia with convenient supermarket, ATM and fuel station next door. Staff were very friendly and the dinners were great. Close to the Robert Louis-Stevenson Museum and a cheap cab ride into town. Car rental from Lynn's is also probably the cheapest you'll find. Most people staying there were medical students doing work experience at the nearby hospital...

I had the pleasure of staying at Lynn's and thoroughly enjoyed my stay.With the comfortable room, friendly staff, excellent selection of home cooked meals, I recommend Lynn's to everyone I speak to. Located beside their supermarket which had a great selection of snacks and freshly baked goodies. Also close to a pizza restaurant, hair salon, juice cafe.

From the moment we arrived, to visit our family in Samoa,we instantly felt welcomed as one of the large family inhabiting Lynn's Getaway in Samoa. We found this delightfully different accommodation most generous in their service, and thoughtful in many ways. We found it a little less organised than large chains, but this didn't detract from our enjoyment. The proprietor,... More

Always come back to Lynn's when I'm in Apia. Lovely staff, great breakfasts and hospitality. Shop and ATM next door. All the rooms are air conditioned and the beds are comfortable. They have cars to rent which is very convenient. Very flexible and professional place to stay.

My wife and I were returning to Australia and needed one night in Apia, so I looked into places to stay using Tripadvisor, and booked Lynn's based on the references. Well it was the best thing we did, nothing is any trouble, the ladies are a laugh, meals are so cheap and Lynn could not have been any more helpful... More

Had the greatest time at Lynn's! (and in Samoa in general). I stayed for 6 weeks and loved it. The staff are so so lovely, welcoming, caring, and will always stop for a chat or to help you with whatever you need. Food was great (breakfast = pancakes, eggs, fruit, bread, etc, dinner is WST$20 = meat, fish, pasta, salads,... More

I stayed here in the last week of Feb, and loved the place. As my first experience of Samoa, this place has set some good standards. The room was clean and spacious. The best part was the home cooked breakfast and dinner. Breakfast comes with the room but for 20Tala you can get the best dinner, prepared by their own... More

Lovely staff, fabulous dinners - Paulo cooked more vegetables when he discovered I did not eat any meat, and introduced me to local foods cooked on the traditional umu. Ensuite room was great and I made good use of the library.

We booked this hotel for our first week in Samoa based on great reviews in Trip Advisor and so happy with our choice. We had a room with an ensuite on the top floor which was conformtable for my husband and I. Our flight was delayed into Apia but we were soon whisked to Lynn's by staff waiting for us... More
