We had a lovely stay. The room was clean and bright. Bathroom was a teensy bit snug, but the shower was great to use. Dave was friendly and very accommodating with our infant during breakfast, which was delicious. There is parking to the rear, but no direct access from the rear into the guest house, so if you have quite... More

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 !!
