A delightful guesthouse situated very close to the promenade and the shops and pubs of town (and practically opposite the lovely Morrab gardens). The Lynwood has a fantastic, friendly host who's full of useful local knowledge, and nice, comfortable, clean rooms with good amenities - and it also does a great cooked breakfast!

We had a very enjoyable stay at Lynwood. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and we could park easily out the front of the BnB. Terry was very friendly and cooks a delicious full Cornish breakfast. He also provided some excellent tips on tourist sites and restaurants! The location of the BnB is also great, and a short walk into...

A lovely relaxing place to stay, ideally situated in a quiet road, close to everything. Very welcoming host, who serves the best breakfast we have had in a B&B, large very clean and tidy room, would definitely stay there again and would definitely recommend

I have been staying here at least once a year for the last 7 years now. Terry and Helen are lovely people and excellent hosts. Their breakfasts are just the right amount and freshly prepared. The rooms are spotless and the beds are extremely comfortable. I have just got back from a 5 night stay there and I was sad...

My husband and I along with my father have just enjoyed a wonderful week in Penzance. The Lynwood was the perfect base for our stay. Terry and Helen were excellent hosts! Breakfast was always plentiful and tasty, fresh was a nice touch. Would definitely stay again!

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights late June as we have family in the area. We thought the location was all important as not far to walk to town with the bonus of walking close to the beach too. Terry's establishment was everything we read about, lovely snowy white bedding and towels. Our room was at the...

Stayed 3 nights at this lovely B&B and could not have asked for more, nothing was too much trouble. Terry has lots of local knowledge and is more than happy to give points of interest to make your stay more enjoyable. The room was clean and comfortable, the breakfasts are lovely, well worth a visit

Stayed here on last night of walking trip. It is a lovely old Victorian house, with clean and comfortable rooms and a good host. Terry was very efficient at getting restaurant and taxis organised. He even did us a special light early breakfast, as we were getting the ferry. No wifi, as the granite walls are too thick. Good value...

My boyfriend and I stayed in The Lynwood for three days, and I have to say, it was perfect. The Victorian decor was just lovely, and our room had immense style and comfort. The hosts are so friendly, warm, welcoming, and also very knowledgeable and helpful. Everything was clean, and the breakfasts are catered to basically whatever YOU want. We...

“for German travellers: British "double beds" are quite narrow, maybe only 1,40 m wide.... if you prefer more space, choose a "twin room", that means two normal beds, but separated.”
