Our second visit to Torwood house. Lynda and Steve provide a warm welcome. Our room was comfortable with tea tray provided. Great for a cuppa after a long train trip. Torwood house is in a pleasant tree lined road , five minutes walk to the sea front or the shopping . Plenty of places nearby for an evening meal. Breakfast... More

Just a pleasure to stay here, the owner is so lovely, nothing is too much trouble, love the bathroom with a corner bath. The house still has many original features which adds to its overall character and charm. Situated on a leafy avenue of mature trees, near enough to walk to town but far enough to be away from the...

From the moment we arrived to the minute we left, this was a wonderful place to stay. The room was very clean and comfortable with clean bed linen and towels. Our hosts were very knowledgeable about the area and happy to share their knowledge

Just left yesterday after a wonderful weeks stay. The hosts were lovely & very accommodating. Nice variety of cooked breakfasts. Great location, a short walk from the promenade.

I can't speak highly enough of this B and B. I stayed 2 nights because we were doing a sponsored walk on the Saturday. Lynda - the hotel proprietor couldn't have been more helpful. Because we had a very early start, she prepared a take-away breakfast for us. On Sunday, though, we relaxed over an excellent cooked breakfast. I was... More

The hotel was lovely and a brilliant location. The owners were very friendly, welcoming and helped with anything you needed. We took our dog with us and he was also very welcome. Room was a good size, very clean and comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was also nice with a fairly big choice available including both cooked and continental. Overall,... More

Steve met us with a very jolly hello and immediately showed us to our rooms while recommending the local Taj Mahal Indian. "Tell them Mr Steve sent you," he said. And it was a good tip too.
