The Lawnswood Guest House
Ranked #88 of 149 Torquay B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 August 2017 via mobile

My husband and I spent one night at this a B&B , to see a show in Torquay.

Karen is a lovely Lady and did a fantastic breakfast and sorted out our room even though I'd made a mistake on the booking and said it was only one person instead of two.

The room was comfortable but was in inspiring the window was a oblique and went onto a courtyard. The bathroom was very small and my husband is 6'3 had trouble getting in the shower and sink was in the room.

This aside we were only there for one night and made to feel very welcome but I would not have liked to have spent any longer in that room

Thank you for your comments, I think you would of been better off in room 4, but as it was already booked this wasn't an option. I know there isn't a view out of the window and the bathroom's are only small but this is reflected in the price you paid. Glad you enjoyed the breakfast, again thank you for your comments.

We stayed for 4 nights at this very clean guest house. Full English breakfast fantastic. Karen is a great host and very friendly and always ready to help. Would certainly return. Short walk to Marina with lots of lovely places to eat there.

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.
