“A fantastic family-run, homely place to stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

I stayed at Lynn's with 15 fellow uni students and our teacher for a 3 week period during nov-dec 2013. We were undertaking a field trip for a university course. We were busy doing lots of things, so coming back to Lynn's everyday was great, as it is such a spacious yet homely place to relax. There is always a quiet corner or seat to sit on, be in inside or on the spacious balcony overlooking the pool. The best parts of Lynn's was the awesome staff, who cared for everyone and you could always have a laugh with. A special mention goes to Paolo the chef, who made absolutely incredible meals for all of us and was so lovely. Also, having the pool there was so great, it feels nice and secluded there too. The location of Lynn's was good, there is Lynn's supermarket just next door which is very convenient. All in all, I would highly recommend Lynn's getaway, and would definitely stay there again and again!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

A group of us booked and stayed at Lynn's for 1 night. My husband and I with our baby booked the Master Bedroom. Along with my parents, brother and 3 of our close friends that booked en-suites. We all talked about how much we loved the family environment and relaxed vibe there.

The staff and owner were all welcoming and accommodating and were also empathetic to my parents and brother. My Dad had a fractured shoulder and my younger brother had gout from eating too much meat lol. I really appreciate the staff's efforts to make my family feel comfortable.

Our room was beautifully spacious and located upstairs with a large bath/separate shower and I even got a chance to hang up our wet clothes on the balcony so that was great.
The food and service was excellent. We arrived after breakfast but were told to help ourselves to the huge bowl of local fresh tropical fruit and also there were delicious pancakes. Then at dinner the chef cooked a lovely fresh red snapper with sauce and fresh vegies, luau and it was one of the nicest meals I have had in Upolu during our trip.

We wished we had stayed here for longer and earlier in our trip. Will definitely come back and stay at Lynn's Getaway Hotel

Room Tip: Book the master bedroom if you have a large family and need more space

Thank you very much Lynn for your great hospitality & to your wonderful family & staff, especially Charles, Fata, Nina,Paulo & Agnes.

We stayed here for 2 days and we had a wonderful time. The place gives you already a homey feeling when you arrive. It looks like you entered a big dining room with an open kitchen and a lounge area. The staff were friendly and gave us a homey feeling and being part of a big family. The breakfast and Sunday lunch was very nice and we enjoyed every bit of it.
Va'ata, Nina and Paolo, thank you for giving us a wonderful start of our holiday.

My wife and I stayed here for a week on a business trip. We wanted a place close to town and near shops / restaurants.
The property itself is a large house with a large communal area on the ground floor with an open plan kitchen and dining area. Highlights of the property for us were the style of accommodation (great for interacting with other guests); the meals ...breakfasts were large and varied ....you could have anything you wanted basically, and the dinners were whatever the chef cooked up and were also excellent and varied (and cheap). We also loved the pool and having both a supermarket and ATM right next door.

Room Tip: More a question of what size room you want. I guess the rooms on the first floor are a little more p...

The location is great. It's not too far from town, there is a store and gas station just outside, and hotels and eateries close by.

The staff are well mannered, polite and very friendly. Having meals here is a nice experience. The food is nicely prepared and clean. It feels very homely.

The house itself is clean and of good quality.

I love it here and more importantly, my family loves it here. We will definitely stay at this place the next time we visit Samoa.

Room Tip: All rooms are great. The family room doesn't have AC if I remember correctly.

Lynn's is a cross between a hotel and a B&B. Good location. The rooms are simple and clean. The breakfast just like at home. A home cooked dinner is offered. Everyone is friendly. It may not be 5star in luxury; however it is 5star in service and convenience. Looking forward to staying here again.

Room Tip: Choose a room with an ensuite.
