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

Just stayed at Torwood House Hotel with my daughter and family last night. This hotel was fantastic, everything was top notch. To start the owner Lynda was warm and welcoming upon arrival checking us in and showing us the rooms. The rooms were very, very fresh and clean, washrooms were spotless! Had a great nights sleep in comfortable beds. This... More

This place reminded me why B&Bs can outscore hotels even though pricewise there can be little in it. This B&B was homely, with a good ensuite and a comfortable, clean bed in a spacious room. Lynda, the owner, was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was tasty and well cooked and all in all it was a relaxing place to stay.

We enjoyed our stay here from the moment we were welcomed by Lynda to when we picked up our packed "breakfast" for our very early departure. Our room was very comfortable with everything we needed including a modern TV that we could connect with our camera to review our pictures. Also had WiFi that actually worked. We really appreciated having... More

This is a lovely guesthouse and very reasonably priced. We had a triple room which was great - spacious, clean and comfortable, and included free wifi. The hosts are very friendly and not at all overpowering. We had to leave fairly early in the morning so they kindly made us an early breakfast. Definitely recommend.

Yes, they serve kippers for breakfast and that on it's own would be good enough for me. Good to have a room on the ground floor as well. Very comfortable beds and good bathroom, not just a shower but a real bath as well. We did not really look at the TV but you could play DVD's in it if... More

We were treated very well at Torwood by Steve and Lynda. They gave us excellent advice on places to visit and eat. The room was very spacious for a family of three. Torwood is a great place to stay with your family. We've heard different opinions about Penzance (not all good), but we liked the town with its busy harbour... More

Very clean and spacious room. Delicious breakfast. This was our last night stop walking from St Ives to Penzance on the south west coastal path. Hosts were fantastic, very friendly and helpful and allowed us to leave our very heavy bag whilst we returned from St Ives later with the car Thank you
