There followed another period of expansion under the direction of Mr Robinson and Mr and Mrs Alan Lewis. In 1953 they purchased the adjoining Burns House Hotel and incorporated it into the Lansdowne to give a total of 84 bedrooms. In 1959, the Partners acquired the Beaulieu Hotel, which after considerable alterations and refurbishment was re-named the Lawns Hotel. The Lawns Hotel operated as a separate unit until 1973. It was joined with the Lansdowne Hotel, which, as a result, became a 142 bedroom Hotel.

Mr and Mrs Lewis' son, Mr Edward Lewis, after hotel management training and practical experience, became a partner in 1969 and was appointed Managing Partner in 1974. Their daughter Mrs. Rosemary Bowker (who died in 2004), joined the Hotel as a partner in 1969 and her daughter Catherine Clifford joined in October 2001 as a partner.
