“Very good value for the money”
Reviewed 28 May 2012

Quiet neighbourhood, nice and clean rooms, decent bathroom, good breakfast, and superb service. The host drove us to the Scillonian in the morning, free of charge. Free wifi in the room. Loved the duvet, I detest the normal English envelope bed linen. Fifteen minutes walk into town.

Reviewed 23 April 2012

We came to Torwood House from the Southgate Hotel in Exeter. There were no Bentley's on the yard but we were immediately given fully working mains adapters to start working, not just a broken one as in the four star Exeter hotel. The building is not new, there's no lift upstairs, the floor squeks a bit, but we have nothing to complain. On the contrary, we felt like home from the start. Lynda and Steve were not afraid to ask if we needed something, and they were very helpful in assisting us enjoy our stay.

The hotel was about 5 £ away from the station by taxi cab, close to Penlee park & Penlee house. The bus to Land's End was a short walk down the street. (On the same side of the street.)

On the other morning, one of the guests was not feeling well, and Lynda was quick to get an ambulance from the nearby station. Such care for guests is very rare. I spend about 90 nights a year at hotel, and Torwood is second to none. Glemmmingebro's gästhärberge near Ystad is about the same level.

Stayed at the Torwood on 21st Jan 2012. Fantastic value for money. Rooms were spacious and very clean, bottled water, tea and coffee all provided. Lynda the host was a mind of information about virtually everything and made our stay that more personal. I would recommend this guest house to everyone. I will be back on a regular basis whilst visiting the penzance area.

Stayed at the Torwood on recommendation of friends and glad we did. Great value for they money, excellent breakfast choices included. Room is clean and well kept. Lynda is a gracious host, as is Steve. Would not hesitate to stay again unless we end up self-catering (ie. if we stay for a full week) next time. Note to travelers who are used to having an AC unit in every room, Cornwall is still in England and you will be hard pressed to find an AC, except in major cities and in chain hotels. If you are concerned about staying in a hot room, try and request a lower floor. (We could never remember to ask for a fan or a light weight cover for the bed...not our hosts fault. They are not mind readers.)

Again, excellent hotel and breakfast was a combination of "continental serve yourself" and cook to order, depending on time you eat.

Stayed overnight at Torwood on 20 July 2011. We were given a room on the ground floor saving us the energy to scale the steps to the rooms located on the higher floor. We appreciated that very much. The room was big and very comfortable; fully equipped with all the necessary amenities. Breakfast served was prefect to the order. The hosts, Lynda and Steve, were most hospitable and made us feel very much welcomed.
Kind regards and God bless.

Lynda & Steve not only make you feel at home, they are extremely knowledgeable of the local areas which is just as well since the local tourism office has been forced to close. Easy to find and within 15 minutes walk of all of your needs in Penzance. Pleasant well appointed rooms make this an affordable and welcome stay.
