Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our second visit as part of different SWCP walks. Lovely welcome from Linda. Room was large and well presented. Breakfast was excellent with a full choice of cereals and cooked options. Location good for food and drink options and close to the coast path.

If we could give more stars we would. We were greeted by the owner Linda who was lovely and very welcoming. Lovely room and service that couldn't be faulted in anyway. Bed and pillows were so comfy that I actually asked the make of them so I can look at getting the same. Breakfast was scrummy and plenty of choice of croissants, cereal and fruit. We had the full cooked breakfast which filled us right up. The bathroom was immaculate with lovely towels and toiletries supplied. Will definitely be staying again.

Lovely hotel conveniently located in Penzance close to the beach. We stayed with our dog for three nights and were surprised at the size of the bedrooms, were great. There was some mold in the bathroom and room but it is an old house so can expect this. Breakfast was fine for what we needed. There is some great food trucks located at the bottom of the road which we ate at on an evening which were nice. Parking was fine as we moved the car outside the hotel on the night and used Beryl bikes.

My wife and I and our miniature dachshund stayed 2 nights at this absolutely wonderful little gem, a short walk from the town and seafront. Lynda was very friendly and welcoming, and nothing was too much trouble for her. The room we stayed in was huge, well presented, comfortable, and very clean. Would highly recommend staying here and intend to do so when we return to Penzance in the future. Thanks for having us 😊

My wife, golden retriever & I stayed at Torwood House fir 3 nights. We had a lovely l, comfortable room, breakfasts were excellent with my wife waxing lyrical about the omelette while I indulged myself having kippers & smoked haddock fish cake. The disappointment on morning 3 that we had to leave far too early to enjoy breakfast was made up for with lively sandwiches etc. We did hit a logistic issue ref getting to the Scillonion ferry on time, Linda & Steve helped sort that. They were the perfect hosts.

We had an amazing stay at Torwood B&B over the weekend. The property was lovely and clean and well looked after. We had our dachshund with us and we’re made to feel very welcome. The B&B was in a fab location for a short stroll into the centre of Penzance to lots of lovely dog friendly pubs. The breakfast was lovely with lots of selection for cooked options and continental. All the cooked options were cooked to perfection. There was plenty of parking outside however avoid parking under the trees with nests as our car found out the hard way from the birds mess! Would highly recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a nice stay in Penzance

What a lovely welcome. Super room, warm welcome and superb breakfast. Took time to engage with guests, ensured every need was met and provided service with a smile. As a corporate and private traveller I would recommend this hotel for anyone on their travels in this area. I am looking forward to returning.

Extremely friendly hosts, excellent (big) cooked breakfast with a buffet table too. Our dog friendly room was lovely & large & the ensuite was totally adequate. Left very early in the morning re our boat check-in time, and fruit & croissants were arranged for us to pick-up from the hallway as we tiptoed out as we were far too early for breakfast. It was extremely sensible, as I think we were one of the few on the tempestuous crossing that kept our food in!! That boat doesn't have a reputation (& a couple of nicknames) for nothing! The park just around the corner was simply amazing, with a lovely cafe.
