We stayed for 1 night and cannot fault this place at all. We had the ground floor room which was beautifully decorated and very clean. Breakfast was good and plentiful. Good location for the sea front and harbour. Would highly recommend and we would definitely stay here again

My teenage son and I stayed one night, the hotel and room was clean and well presented, Karen was very friendly and made us feel welcome. But...bathroom was tiny, as were the twin beds, these were more suitable for a child, they were very narrow. Would have been fine in a family room but not at all suitable for adults.
Also the 45 minute breakfast slot from 8:30 was a surprise - good breakfast though!-

We stayed here Friday night and got the train up from Cornwall! It was a fantastic stay nothing to fault! The room was so homely and clean and fresh. Me and my partner hate really hot rooms and this was so cool and even had a fan we could use! Karen was so welcoming and her dog was so adorable! The house was so lovely with a calm atmosphere, and the breakfast In the morning was stunning, I had pouched egg on toast and my boyfriend has bacon sandwich and it was perfect. Karen was kind, lovely and someone you can really get along with. Gorgeous house stunning views we are 100% coming back and it's not over priced! Brilliant for the stay! Thank you so much for making our first ever trip to Torquay one to remember! :)

The Lawnswood was very clean and the breakfast was good, but the bathroom was tiny - if I'd been any bigger, I'd have struggled! I agree with other reviewers on here - the personal life of the owner does have an impact on guests, although she was always pleasant when she was around. Apparently, the reason there was no housekeeping one day was that she was "delicate" after the previous evening, and an argument woke me during the night once. Parking was a problem - it is hard to find space on the street when Torquay is busy, and the Lawnswood's own space is very small, with room for just a couple of small cars and a bike.

Excuse me! The Guest house is cleaned everyday there has never been a day when it hasn't since iv been here. As for parking it's free parking out the front parking round the back and also a car park a minutes walk away that charges £4.00 for 24 hours. As for an argument? Glad you enjoyed your breakfast.
