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...

The hotel was lovely and a brilliant location. The owners were very friendly, welcoming and helped with anything you needed. We took our dog with us and he was also very welcome. Room was a good size, very clean and comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was also nice with a fairly big choice available including both cooked and continental. Overall,...

Stayed two nights before catching the ferry to the Scilly Isles. Got a warm welcome and enjoyed our stay at Torwood. Breakfasts were smashing. The room was big and the owners were so nice. Bed was a little squeaky but comfortable and big. Torwood is dog friendly and located nicely, just a short walk from the harbour. Rugby fans should...

Steve met us with a very jolly hello and immediately showed us to our rooms while recommending the local Taj Mahal Indian. "Tell them Mr Steve sent you," he said. And it was a good tip too. 'Twas a feisty brew. Torwood House is your standard B&B but the rooms, brekkie and welcome go the extra mile, making it a...

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. The breakfast was fantastic and there was a wide selection of very good food. Also, we could hired the bikes directly there, they were almost new and it was such a great service. Above all, we...

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!
