Reviewed December 28, 2012

We stayed in a double room for one night on the 23rd of December and it was perfect, the room was a good size and modern with everything we could need. The En-suite as modern and clean.

When we arrived we felt very welcome and that our needs were all taken into account.

The breakfast in the morning was amazing, just what was needed before a long drive home.

We stayed in the double room for a night on the 15th Dec and loved it. I can't really understand a review I read saying it was too small, it was a double room and we coudn't have asked for more! Comfy, cosy, warm, well equiped with different tea's, coffee's, hot choc, bottled water, biscuits and chocolates... What more could one want and we were told that we had the use of a fridge. The bathroom had shower gel, soap ect also and was spotlessly clean and the bed comfortable. Breakfast was lovely, full English plus toast, fruit salad and a fantastic choice of home made jams and honey! Our hosts were ever so friendly but unobtrusive and the patio and garden was very pretty and obviously well loved by it's owners. If we were to visit Padstow again and need to stay over, we would definately choose Tor View!

Room Tip: We had the smallest room which we found adiquate for the 2 of us but there are 2 more rooms which ar...

Tor View is immaculately presented, pristine in cleanliness, and the owners are very accommodating and helpful. We booked as a base for a 'Rick Stein weekend' and Tor View ticked the box for this purpose. Can't comment on the food as we didn't get up by 9am (which may be an issue for some weekend trippers) but understand it was extremely good. Our room was the smallest, and the shower cubicle might be an issue for some 'larger' travellers. However, the bed was very comfortable and the ambience relaxing. On balance a positive experience and all credit to the owners in their approach to customer care.

Room Tip: Enquire about availability of the largest room

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
