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!

Very friendly and helpful hosts, with a professional approach. We had a quiet, comfortable room, with plenty of space. The breakfast was good, with plenty of choice and quantity. Torwood House is well placed to visit Penzance town and the surrounding area. The on street parking might be a bit of a problem as it is a popular street, but...

We stayed for 5 nights and really enjoyed it. Linda and Steve were excellent hosts. The rooms were cosy and comfortable and provided all we needed for a good holiday.

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...

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...
