Very friendly and helpful landlady at this B&B just off the promenade - we arrived very late and she was there waiting for us. Nothing is too much trouble. Free on-street parking and plenty of spots this time of year. Excellent breakfast cooked by her husband, and they do a great Full English Vegetarian. Loads of info around hotel on... More

Stopped off in an emergency and booked v quickly, turning up within 5 mins. Owner was already ready and introduced me to my room with no delay, telling me the bill could be settled in the morning. He was very chatty and helpful, telling me where the best local pub (The Bath Arms) was. The room itself is clean, cosy... More

The room was well appointed Steve cooked delicious food and Lynda made sure it was served just as everyone wanted So much choice for breakfast Thank you Michael and Gwyneth Watkins

This is our 'dog friendly' Penzance stopover of choice. We stayed a night and were then prevented from returning home to Scilly by the foggy conditions. Lynda opened up a room for us specially and could not have been more helpful. Don't worry if you don't like dogs as the rooms are spotlessly clean. The breakfast is excellent and the... More

We were warmly welcomed when we arrived and found ourselves in a clean and comfortable room in this Victorian house. The shower was powerful and hot and our bed was very comfortable, two things which I rate highly in a B&B. Breakfasts were very good too and what I liked was the homemade bread toast. The cooked breakfast was made... More

I booked a night's stay at Torwood House at the last minute. After a lap, we were finally able to find a parking space on the tree lined street and climbed the stairs to enter Torwood House.

Only stayed one night after returning from the Isles of Scilly. Stayed in room 7 up in the attic which was OK but no view & not keen on the decor but that's a personal choice. Very well looked after by our hosts. Very tasty breakfast. I had the local fish cakes. Thank-you.

Lovely hosts, very welcoming. The room was large with everything you needed. Breakfast was good and Lynda kindly got in apple juice for me as I can not drink orange juice. Easy to park and only a short walk into town or to Newlyn. Would recommend to anyone. Thank you Lynda for a lovely stay!
