Just returned from a short break in Torquay, we found the Lawnswood by chance, so glad we did, Karen couldn't have been a better host, and she knows how to cook a decent breakfast. The room was big enough and cleaned every day, plenty of tea, coffee and sugar, and extra milk which we needed. The guest house is not... More

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... More

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.

The twin bedroom is spacious and deco is very soothing. We stayed for only one night and David prepared our vegetarian breakfast which... More

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. You make it sound like mount Everest. not what it actually was. Air-con ? i'm not aware of any guest houses or hotels (only the most modern and expensive... More
