I have stayed here for five weeks while I Have been in the pantomime in the Princess Theatre, My host David Brown and his Family and staff, have made me feel right at home. My room was very comfortable with everything I needed, a good range of fruit fruit juices ect, plus an excellent cooked breakfast,

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....

We've only been there for one night, but the room was large, clean and had everything you need, the Guest house is in a quit street, within walking distance of the city centre. The owners are very nice and helpfull, they serve an excellent breakfast in the morning. Overall, a great place too stay, we would definitly stay there again.

The lawnswood is a good bed and breakfast to stay at, its very clean and welcoming. The rooms are massive but the only down side is very small bathrooms. The breakfast is very nice and there's a wide choice of food. Its an ideal place to stay as its close to the town and sea front. Me and my family... More
