Bed and Breakfast - probably the best we have ever stayed in. Perfect location, lovely staff, great breakfast and absolutely spotlessly clean. Ample parking. Five minutes walk from Peasholm Park and the open air theatre, ten minutes walk from the beach.

Great Hotel in a fab location with lots of street parking which is free. The hotel does have a small car park aswell. We stayed in room 2 on the front. Lovely comfy bed. Every where was spotless. Breakfast was an extra £6.50 each and worth every penny. Lots of choice. Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel and will... More

Booked in here as at a swimming gala at the pool opposite.Very convenient. Rooms spotlessly clean and comfortable, Staff very friendly and helpful, even provided cooked breakfast at 7am on a Sunday morning so swimmers could eat before competing. Many thanks

After 4 of us have just spent 3 nights here, we found it difficult to fault our stay. The Lysander is located in a quiet residential area close to Peasholm Park with plenty of on-street parking. It is tastefully decorated and cleaned and maintained to a very high standard - one of our party kept stroking the paint finish on... More

From the warmth of the requested early check in, right through to the friendliness of the check out, we couldn't have found more welcoming, clean and attentive accommodation. Thanks to these folks for helping to make this a great weekend.

Stayed her with a few other couples over a weekend in September for the wifes birthday. The Lysander is a pleasant B&B with nice & friendly staff.
