We booked a Groupon deal with "The Lawns" and felt a must to write a review. From the arrival at the hotel we were extremely impressed, a warm greeting from the staff, a wonderful room with everything you could possibly need. Clean, comfortable, with excellent choice of decor and fittings. Cream tea was served anytime we wanted it which was... More

The management agreed a price by phone on 3 separate occasions, but then thought it was ok to go back on the price and overcharge one we had arrived. The afternoon tea was very poor stale scones and squirty cream. In fairness the breakfast was good. Drinks overpriced. Tired rooms.

I'm sorry to hear you had a poor experience with us here at The Lawns. I am surprised to hear you thought the cream tea was poor and the rooms tired, as you can see from other reviews these are not comments we usually receive. The room have in recent months been refurbished. As you mentioned you had the cream... More

We stayed at The Lawns on a Groupon deal on the way back from visiting relations in Hampshire. When we arrived we were shown to our 'room' this was another building in the car park called Wendy House. It was lovely, it's was a ground floor apartment, all mod cons, and very comfortable. A small moan was there was no... More

We stayed at the Lawns Hotel first week of July and found the hotel very comfortable and the staff warm and thoughtful. The breakfast was delicious.. We inadvertently left belongings in our room after departure and the manager phoned us then very generously wrapped them carefully and sent them all the way back to New Zealand for us free of...

We stayed mid-week in July 2014 after buying a Groupon voucher for a two night stay. When we arrived the pub downstairs was really busy with guests and locals as it was dinner time. It seemed like a lovely place for a meal and drink. We got shown to our room by a really friendly member of staff and when... More

Stayed at The Lawns recently on a Groupon deal for a friends birthday. From arrival to departure we were treated to the highest standard. The room, whilst small, was more than adequate and spotlessly clean. The weather was hot and the owner went to great lengths to ensure we had a fan for the room. Our room was at the... More

Recently returned from a 2 night groopon deal for the lawns. The lawns hotel should really make it clear it is a pub/restaurant with a few rooms. When we arrived there was literally nowhere to park. We were advised to park at the local coop or on the road, neither of which was what i wanted to do. I would... More
