Lovely owners who seemed to make everyone feel welcome and important. Nice property which was clean and tidy. Short walk to the sea front. They were also able to offer gluten free cereal, toast and other breakfast items without any difficulty. This was really appreciated. We felt that the owners really try to ensure they can accommodate all requests and...

We stayed here twice on either side of a trip to the Scilly Isles. My fiance booked it because the reviews were good & it offers free parking. Now we've been, the whole road consists of B&B's & you can park your car anywhere on this road & along the promenade for free. The room we got on our first...

Thank you for reviewing the Torwood, you obviously enjoy reviewing everywhere you go. I am sorry that you felt embarrassed at breakfast, but you had sat on a table obviously laid out for a party of three and as there was no where else for the party of three to sit the move was necessary, you still had a window...

Stayed here for two nights and were very happy with the friendly welcome and comfortable room. We had everything we needed in the room, we got some good recommendations from the hosts for local stops. Breakfast was very good, especially the fish cakes with poached egg - worth going for those alone! They were flexible with our breakfast time as...

Last December I decided to go to Penzance for a few days and I found this very nice Hotel and I would like to recommend it. Torwood House Hotel was quite close to the city centre and it was a pleasant ten/fifteen minute walk from there. Lynda was very friendly and enthusiastic and made me feel welcome and at home....

I came to Penzance for a few days' break and booked the Torwood House Hotel based on reviews here, and wasn't disappointed. Lynda couldn't have been more pleasant and helpful and was knowledgeable about the area and walks I might want to do etc. I had the downstairs double room (on my own), which was large and comfortable, although, being...

It's a nice place to stay in Penzance. We were received by a very friendly lady who gave us all the suggestions and tips we needed. The place is clean and cozy. The cornish traditional breakfast is delicious.
