Had the pleasure of two stays at Torwood House on my way to & back from the Isles of Scilly. A couple of months ago when I phoned to book, I was struck by the welcoming attitude of Lynda and my arrival confirmed this warm welcome. The guesthouse is cosy, comfortable and spotlessly clean, in a nice quiet road with plenty of parking. They really have thought of everything in the rooms for guests comfort, a generous tea tray, bottled water, hairdryer, cushions to lay back on whilst watching TV, WiFi, very comfortable beds, armchairs, plenty of storage, great shower with hand wash, shampoo, shower gel etc. I also loved that the shower was fitted with a sturdy and useful shelf unit where you can put all your own toiletries, rather than having to precariously balance them on the edge of the bath or shower tray. The breakfast was fantastic, a great array of cereals, orange juice, fresh fruit, cheeses, cold meats, croissants plus an extensive menu of hot breakfast dishes cooked to order and served with toast, proper butter, selection of jams, honey, nutella, marmite and cafetieres of very nice coffee. The guesthouse also welcomes dogs, which is essential for my family as we don't go away without our very well-behaved Golden Retriever! Lynda was also kind enough to allow me to leave my bags at the guesthouse after I had checked out, whilst I explored Penzance for a couple of hours before departing. All in all, I can't recommend Torwood House enough and wished I could have stayed longer. I will definitely stay there next time I'm in Penzance :-)
