We stayed here for 2 nights with our dog Millie as we explored Cornwall. The hosts were loving and friendly, welcomed Millie with big pats, definitely a dog friendly but so clean you wouldn't know it! The breakfast was yummy with a variety of choices. I also can't think Linda enough for returning my mum's cardigan which was left behind,...

We spent a couple of nights at Torwood House and we would highly recommend it. The rooms were clean, comfortable and very well furnished.

We try to stay here each time we visit Britain. Nice owners, clean and comfortable rooms, good breakfast. They make you feel like you are home, tv in every room. Ours even had a DVD player. Nice clean bathrooms. Pretty reasonable rates.

I travelled to Cornwall with my kids and stayed in one of Norwood House's family rooms. It was spacious and had everything we needed- even tea, hot chocolate, and coffee. Breakfast was also a treat. We hired our bikes from the B&B as well. As if Linda and Steve hadn't already been kind enough, Steve rescued us when my daughter...

We spent two nights here as part of our holiday in Cornwall; Lynda and Steve were very welcoming and their local knowledge and recommendations helped to make our stay in Penzance thoroughly enjoyable. Rooms were large and comfortable, and the breakfast was excellent! Thank you!

A wonderful little place. Like staying at a relative's house. Very nice couple owns this place. One of the few people here who do not care if you bring your dog. Lovely, chatting, animal loving. Wonderful breakfast included. Everything you need or might want. Homemade toast. Nothing I could complain about!

room was good, breakfast cooked to order plus you could have a buffet one as well, it is in a nice part of Penzance, about a 15 min' walk into town or you could get the bus about 600 yrs from the sea and around 15/20 min's walk to bus/train station.
