We find British accommodations generally more expensive for similar quality than those on the continent. My reviews are not country specific, but based on my total experience. Our navigation system took us directly to the front door. Torwood House is one of a row of attached private B&Bs. First impression was that it had the least well maintained exterior of... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights at Torwood House and would happily stayed longer. Lynda carried the case to our room which, although on the top floor was spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. We were surprised at the size of the breakfast menu and I REALLY enjoyed the smoked haddock fishcakes. We could not have been made to feel... More

My partner and I stayed for one night with our 19month old son. I had forgot to mention when booking that we needed a cot, Lynda straight away noticed and got one for us. She showed us to our room and my first word was "WOW" it truly was a lovely, peaceful, cosy room. My son noticed the little touch... More

My partner and I, plus our dog (a very energetic 7 month old English Bull Terrier), stayed at Torwood House for a night last Thursday before catching the ferry over to the Isles of Scilly. The hotel is in an excellent location for catching the boat in a pretty residential area right by the Penlee gallery and garden and a... More

I stayed for two nights at the Torwood house hotel while on a business trip to Cornwall and will definitely stay here again. The welcome was warm and friendly and my room was clean, spacious and comfortable, the breakfast on both days was delicious and set me up for the day. I would recommend the Torwood to anybody.
