We arrived at the B&B at approximately 2pm and was greeted by a friendly woman who took us to our room! The room we stayed in was situated at the front of the building and was well presented.

After returning from a meal at 7:30, by 8pm we heard aggressive shouting and arguing coming from the seating area below between the owner(s) and the staff of the B&B. We could see them and therefore knew it wasn't coming from the RAF club next door.

We tried to get some sleep but the noise was overwhelming and we honestly felt like leaving there and then as we would of had a better night sleep in the car! The arguing continued till around 2am and got progressively worse, at one point we felt like calling the police as it was horrific!

This wasn't professional and made us feel very uncomfortable.
A note to the owners, you can hear every word so maybe invest in some double glazing.

We left promptly the next morning!
If this hadn't happened, we would of had a lovely stay as the room was clean and pretty but that experience ruined it for us and we'll not be returning again.

Very sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. The argument you are referring to was not between myself and the staff it was between guest's. This was addressed and the guest's where asked to leave.

Reasonable location and good breakfast. It's a B & B, not running a building site, so just a little more relaxed on rules and regulations. Most guests are holiday and looking to chill. In another post, a girlfriend got turfed out at checkout time, even though he had a least one more night booked.

My husband and I booked quite late to stay at the Lawnswood guest house. The room we had was a great size and the bed very comfortable. There was plenty of choice for breakfast and Karen was very hospitable. Would definitely stay again
