The Lawnswood Guest House
Ranked #90 of 150 Torquay B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 13, 2012

I have relocated for work down to Torquayand have been staying at Lawnswood while I find somewhere permanent to live. I have been made to feel very welcome by Dave and Ang. Nothing is too much trouble and it's justlike being at home. Excellent food, spotlessly clean and comfortable facilities including free wi-fi, television etc...... I can't recommend Lawnswood highly enough.

We stayed one night at the Lawnswood Guest House run by Angela and David and encountered a centrally located B&B run by a delightful couple. As mentioned in most reviews has to be the best breakfast offered in a B&B. We opted for the full English Breakfast and the Scottish Salmon and Scrambled Eggs - delicious! The breakfast room is bright and has linen tableware and napkins - a great touch. As we only stayed one night were allocated the ground floor room so did not have to manage luggage up the stairs. The bathroom was very small but adequate and all well maintained and clean. Room size not as small as some we have encountered in the UK and a carpark found on the street just outside the door. Walking distance to town and restaurants and enjoyed the walk along the promenade. Would highly recommend.

Just got back from a 4 night stay at the Lawnswood Guest House. David and Angela were delightful hosts and nothing was too much trouble. The room was spotlessly clean and well appointed. Breakfast was very good and set us up for the day. The location suited our needs. Overall, hard to fault and a perfect base to explore an area with so much to offer.

This is a charming little guest house which we choose for its proximity to the Conference centre and is only 10 mins walk from the rail station.
The hosts wery friendly and the cooked breakfast was too die for.
The place is clean and the rooms functional. We stopped in room 1 which is a little small, but I think the other rooms are a little larger.

Room Tip: Avoid room 1 if possible.

My boyfriend and I stayed here last Thursday for the night. The room was fairly modern, very clean, no dust with good facilities. The ensuite bathroom again very clean, modern but compact with a shower, toilet and sink. No bath but that suited us both fine. The bed was large and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent I had the scrambled egg and smoked salmon, the egg was cooked perfectly and a generous portion of very tasty salmon. My boyfriend had the cooked breakfast, which looked very nice with good quality ingredients and the plate was grease free. We will almost certainly consider this guest house as an option if we stay again in Torquay.
