difficult review to make here. On the one hand, the owners are very attentive and keen on making the guests feel welcome in every way. Sadly, the room, although spotlessly clean and furnished well (albeit in a rather dated style) was extremely small... there was more space in the bathroom than the bedroom. The bed was small and uncomfortable. The walls were very thin and there was very little semblance of privacy in this place; one felt uncomfortable coughing in case of disturbing the neighbors. The location was in a residential street, not particularly bad but not picturesque in any way. For the price i am afraid this just was not worth it for us.

We have just returned from our first trip to Cornwall, we stayed at "Tor View" in Padstow, we booked it on the internet, what a good choice we made ( your never sure ) "Tor View" is located on a hill in an older residential area ( nice and quiet ) it is only a 5 minute walk downhill to the centre past one of Rick Steins many businesses. The property is modern and decorated and fitted out to a good standard, owners James and Lisa are friendly and accomodating and have great local knowledge if you need advise, great breakfast, good value.

Room Tip: Only three rooms and all good.

This was a great break in Padstow and round Cornwall made even better with our stay at the Tor View b/b, good location, the views from the dining room while having a great breakfast are something to savour and what a menu to choose from, our hosts James and Lisa really make you feel part of the family, without being obtrusive,nice stroll down to the harbour side and a good bit of exercise to get back to your lovely comfortable room well stocked with teas coffee and biscuits, and of course water and milk in the fridge whenever you want it.
Our bathroom was a good size with a great shower some nice cosmetics and the towels were adequate, and oh of course off road parking is a god send knowing that when you go off exploring round Padstow and surrounding area.
Would i stay at Tor View b/b again? Most certainly, would i recommend it to anybody most definitely!

Room Tip: You might want the kingsize if you are a little taller rooms 2and3 have views across the estuary

Just come back from a weekend in Padstow to visit family. Tor view is about a 10 minute walk to my family and about the same from Padstow centre. Handily located, quite hilly but worth it.
Friendly welcome, good introduction to all facilities. Lovely modern good sized room with very comfortable bed and good quality linens and towels.
Great cooked breakfast with plenty of choice of juices and cereals (if you're having the cooked breakfast you won't have room for cereal as well as there's plenty), very much recommended as great value for money, will definitely stay again.
Thanks James and Lisa !
Regards
Andy

Absolutely lovely B and B, the location is excellent, an easy stroll down to Padstow and an opportunity to walk off the wonderful dinners we enjoyed in town on the stroll back! Clean, modern rooms with smart use of space, Lisa and James were brilliant and the breakfasts were really great, with views across the estuary to Rock adding to the delight of the mornings. The fact that you can leave your car on the drive and not worry about parking really made this a first class stop, I did not believe all the amazing reviews of this place I studied before booking but its all true! Well done and thanks!

Room Tip: We were in room 3 and it was great, cannot comment on the others, but suggest you book early as its...

Stayed at Tor View B&B in Padstow over the weekend and I must say I was impressed with the accommodation itself and undoubtedly the service. A Very convenient location; close to the town and overlooking the harbour. I will recommend as place to stay if you do visit Padstow. ;)

I think this B and B is great one of the best accommodations we have had in our travels around Cornwall.
5 mins into town 10 to 15 back up the hill but well worth the stay.
Lisa and James great host and hostess nothing was any trouble and the breakfast was excellent.
We left there to go to our next stay and refused to stay the place was dreadfull refused to stay headed into St Ives to get fresh accommodation,Tor View was so good just had to get something the same.
