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.

Travelling to Penzance every year when I can, I always try to stay at the Torwood house as it is brilliant accommodation, fantastically friendly, always a great breakfast and if you don't know what to have you can always swap and change! It was sweltering one afternoon in the summer and they even gave us their own fan for our... More

Our stay couldn't be better. We spend 2 nights there and everything was perfect, room nice, nice breakfast and helpful hosts. We also hire some bikes to go around (44 miles) and steve gave us the most perfect directions we ever had. We are really thankful for one of the best weekends we had. Ty Lynda & Steve

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.
