room was good, breakfast cooked to order plus you could have a buffet one as well, it is in a nice part of Penzance, about a 15 min' walk into town or you could get the bus about 600 yrs from the sea and around 15/20 min's walk to bus/train station.

We spent six nights in this excellent hotel just before christmas.Lyn and Steve were brilliant hosts and their breakfasts every morning were very tasty.The hotel is in a quiet street not far from the promenade and an easy walk to town centre or in to Newlyn.All in all a great place to stay

We chose Torwood House for an overnight stay on route to the Isles of Scilly. It was far enough to be in a quiet residential road but not too far from the harbour. The owners were friendly and helpful, the room comfy and a good breakfast served up the next morning. We found that we had left an item of... More
