David and Val Hewitt gave us a warm and informative welcome.....first impressions were good. Our room was on the first floor and was well equipped with everything you would need for a weekend stop-over. There was no large double available at short notice, so two single beds were put together and these were extremely comfortable with fresh linen and towels provided. The room was compact - however it was cleaned every day and had an ensuite shower. Quite a lot of noise outside the window - neighbours' motorcycle and sea-gulls, but the proprietors cannot be blamed for these factors! Very generous, well-cooked breakfast and we were accommodated on time and special diet. The Lyness is situated on a busy main road - just 5 minutes drive from the sea front. Parking IS tricky - and operates on a disk timezone. David was really helpful on advice as to how to make the most of this, and we did not have to walk far from where we parked both days. I am partially disabled, and struggled to climb the stairs; they may be rather steep for someone with mobility problems.
