We stayed at the Lawnswood for 4 nights in May at a bargain price of £200. We were in room 4 which was very clean and spacious with comfortable beds. We found the en-suite a bit of a tight fit and I think that when it was added they should have given up a bit more of the bedroom space... More

Excellent location for the sea front, harbour is a ten minute walk and main shopping area is a 5 minute walk, if you take the Lucius Street route. Convenient for bus route which is just as well as parking is a nightmare, we were lucky to get a space and left the car there for the duration, apparently there is... More

Loved the night my partner and I had there. David helped us unload our car and showed us to our very spacious room. Perfect size for us as we brought our baby along. Breakfast was amazing. Cooked perfectly and the waitress was very nice. Sadly our stay was cut short to one night instead of two due to family issue.... More

Returned for a 3 night "football special" weekend. Excellent location with short walk to seafront, harbour and town centre. Friendly, helpful hosts. Clean comfortable room and excellent sleep on very comfortable bed. Piping hot good quality breakfast. Excellent 3 points for the Mighty Mariners - a simply perfect weekend !!

Stayed here for three nights 10/11/12.08.14 & wish it could have been longer. Nothing but praise for this guest house. Angela and Dave were excellent hosts, nothing was too much trouble for them and Dave is a mine of local information. The room was spacious and very clean with little added touches you don't find in other guest houses. The... More
