Absolutely lovely!! Rooms were always tidy and Karen was so amazing; always warm and friendly. The hotel is situated close to the town which was great for us. We would definitely come again!! Every morning we had a wonderful breakfast and always tea/coffee in our room.

I stayed here for a week weeks as working in the area. It's clean and tidy but I do find the rooms very small. The owners are friendly and always happy to help. There is free WiFi and always clean towels in the room each morning. The price of the room are very reasonable also. I can't say how good...

Stayed for 3 nights, 17-20 July. Received a warm welcome on arrival and was shown to our room. The room was clean and comfortable. Host Karen was very friendly and helpful and Albi cooked an amazing breakfast each morning, his poached eggs were lush. Would definitely return if visiting Torquay again .

Stayed for five nights. Met by a lovely hostess, who made sure we had everything we needed. Neat rooms, great breakfast and super location. Walking distances to the seafront and city center. Definately staying there again if we are in Torquay.

We arrived just after 4pm and had our van parked in front opposite of guest house. We had room 1 (double bed) on first floor facing the rear and room 4(twin beds) on first floor facing front. The twin bedroom is spacious and deco is very soothing. We stayed for only one night and David prepared our vegetarian breakfast which...

I'm glad you enjoyed your short stay with us. just to clarify a couple of your points; you were helped with your luggage up the 12 steps to the first floor.

Another comfortable stay at Lawnswood and the usual warm, friendly welcome from David. My wife was suffering from a back problem so we were swiftly moved to a room with a firmer mattress - excellent service. After cereals,the excellent full English breakfast is served piping hot with tea/coffee & toast.

Good communication. Even though owner was out on arrival. Everything had been taken care of. Good breakfast. Friendly owner, easy to talk to. Comfort in that other guests, that used to live local and repeat vistors, still came back. For me the matress was a bit worn/soft, but i stress that is nit-picking and not worthy of the other box....
