“3 comfortable nights”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

We stayed in the ground floor room for 3 nights over a weekend and were impressed with Windsor House, we would definitely recommend it. Elaine is an excellent host, breakfasts are great and she is very helpful to guests not so familiar with the area. If we need to stay in Torrington again, this will be our first choice, particularly for the friendly welcome and easy parking.

Stayed March 2013, traveled as a couple

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Only a brief stay during a Coast to Coast bike ride, but it is clear that this is a really excellent b&b nonetheless. We arrived soaked through with filthy bikes and bags (and a bit late), but both owners were very welcoming and helpful. They helped us store our bikes in the shed and get our stuff upstairs, and generally couldn't have been more welcoming. The room (first at the top of stairs) was lovely and quiet, and had a huge private bathroom just across the landing - everything was immaculately clean and tidy. Elaine recommended a pub for food that was just what we needed (The Black Horse) and the breakfast the next morning was great.

Overall, it was just what we needed for our stopover and would be just as great for a longer stay.

We have stayed at Windsor House on 3 occasions now. Elaine is a lovely and welcoming hostess. The rooms are beaturifully decorated and really comfrotable and 'roomy'. The breakfast is delicious so beware you just can't say 'No' to Elaine's cooked breakfast!! We would recommend Windsor House to anyone who is looking for a warm, welcoming and 'feel at home' B & B. Very good value for money.

I stayed at Windsor House for two weeks (in mid Oct and late Oct/early Nov). I was working around the Torrington area. It was a great place to stay. A perfect B&B. Excellent value for money. A lovely house and a very warm welcome. It is easily one of the best B&Bs that I have stayed at. I would highly recommend it.

Stayed here for a couple of nights with my husband and 18-month-old daughter. Lovely relaxed place with nicely-decorated rooms and comfortable beds. The owners were really friendly and very accommodating to our little one.

We were in the family room, which has level-access from the front door.

The couple who run this bed and breakfast are very welcoming, they couldnt be more helpful, but just when you need them to be. The accomodation is stunning in my view, attention to detail is noticeable everywhere you look. Set in a quiet town, yet there is usually something going on and there are some fantastic places to see nearby, within a comfortable distance.
