Friendly welcome (the website says no arrivals after 1900 but we phoned to warn the owners we would be late). Excellent breakfast, with lots of choice and very well cooked. Good sized rooms, very clean, some bathroom fittings a little tired but all perfectly usable and spotless.

Room Tip: Choose a room at the front of the house to avoid the noisy Jackdaws (birds) in the early am.

Thank you for your review and we appreciate your kind comments. Sorry about the crows. We take note of your comments about some of the bathroom fittings, these are earmarked for replacement during our winter months.

Linda and Steve proved to be very welcoming in this B&B close to the port and promenade for walks to Newlyn.Very good substantial breakfast and good size comfortable rooms with all that was necessary for our 2 night stay before travelling to Isles of Scilly. Linda was especially kind after my husband had an accident and offered to wash his clothes to avoid blood stains setting in.
Our sincere thanks to you both

Had a very comfortable stay here before travelling on to the Scillies. Good family room and our dog was allowed to stay too! Linda & Steve were very welcoming and had a wonderful breakfast all organised for us in time to check in for the ferry. Will definitely come here again.

The hotel has a nice and calm location, not far from the water but some walking distance from the city center. Lynda was a very friendly host and she served a wonderful breakfast with a smile that lasted at least to lunch. The wifi worked well, parking possible next to the hotel without cost. The room was large and it was staying in a private house - the room had a nice bed.

My husband and I stayed at Torwood House for two nights over the Easter weekend. We were warmly greeted by Steve who showed us to our upstairs room and was really helpful when we asked him about heading into town, parking, nearby restaurants etc.

Torwood House is located in a peaceful, residential street amongst a number of other B&Bs. There is plenty of street parking available. It would probably take about 20 minutes to walk into town and to the restaurants located along the waterfront.

Our room was spacious and nicely decorated. The central heating was on and there was an additional heater if we needed it (but it wasn't working - we forgot to mention this to our hosts). The hot water jug and tea cups seemed a bit dusty, but overall the room and bathroom were clean and tidy.

Breakfast is served between 8am and 9am. There is plenty of choice - cereals, fruit, hot drinks, muffins, yoghurt etc as well as a made to order hot breakfast (full English, kippers, toast, fish cakes). Breakfast was delicious. We found easter eggs at our table on Easter Sunday which we thought was a nice touch.

The hosts were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our short stay and would recommend this B&B to others.

A fantastic B&B, great location. Room was very clean and pleasant. Tea and cookies in the room. Comfortable bed and nice folding TV to maximize space. Linda and Steve are the perfect hosts. They even treated us to easter eggs on our Easter Day breakfast table!
