Friendly welcome (the website says no arrivals after 1900 but we phoned to warn the owners we would be late). Excellent breakfast, with lots of choice and very well cooked. Good sized rooms, very clean, some bathroom fittings a little tired but all perfectly usable and spotless.

Had a very comfortable stay here before travelling on to the Scillies. Good family room and our dog was allowed to stay too! Linda & Steve were very welcoming and had a wonderful breakfast all organised for us in time to check in for the ferry. Will definitely come here again.

The hotel has a nice and calm location, not far from the water but some walking distance from the city center. Lynda was a very friendly host and she served a wonderful breakfast with a smile that lasted at least to lunch. The wifi worked well, parking possible next to the hotel without cost. The room was large and it... More

We were warmly greeted by Steve who showed us to our upstairs room and was really helpful when we asked him about heading into town, parking, nearby restaurants etc. Torwood House is located in a peaceful, residential street amongst a number of other B&Bs. There... More

A fantastic B&B, great location. Room was very clean and pleasant. Tea and cookies in the room. Comfortable bed and nice folding TV to maximize space. Linda and Steve are the perfect hosts. They even treated us to easter eggs on our Easter Day breakfast table!

My husband and I stayed here on a lightening visit to Penzance to attend a gig at The Pirate inn. On arrival we met Steve, who gave us a warm welcome, and showed us to our spacious, clean, and nicely decorated room. We chatted and when we told him why we were there he revealed that the landlord and landlady... More
