“Very enjoyable stay”
Reviewed 26 November 2011

Enjoyed a wonderful stay at Torwood House when we attended a nearby wedding. The accommodation (Victoria Suite) was light, spacious and tastefully decorated as were the other public rooms and the location quiet.The bed was wonderfully comfortable and made up with really good quality linen. Breakfast was high quality and Zoe's hospitality was excellent - nothing was too much trouble - but discreet. Would recommend highly.

Following a recommendation of a friend I booked Torwood House twice last year for some friends/family who wanted to spend time in Broadstairs whilst on relaxing retreats from London. Both friends and family alike couldn't thank me enough praising the accommodation and owner (Zoe's) outstanding hospitality saying everything had more than exceeded their expectations.

Broadstairs itself is an overlooked gem along the Kentish coast with Torwood House being in the perfect location for quick and easy access to the beach, shops, pubs and restaurants. Everyone remarked on the astonishing tasty and plentiful breakfasts, the beautifully appointed rooms and the superbly warm and friendly welcome from Zoe.

This year I decided to treat some well-travelled family members from Austria to a mid-week stay at Torwood House at the start of their tour of England. Having stayed several times in Broadstairs previously they believed the standard of their previous accommodation and hospitality of their Hosts could not be improved upon ... but I am happy to report that they ate their words so much so they booked themselves in for another weekend at the end of their tour saying it was the nicest/friendliest place they had ever stayed in not only in Broadstairs but in England.

Having had to listen to me rave about the feedback and revelling in the glory for actually booking this delightful accommodation for lots of very happy people, my husband surprised me at the start of the summer with a two night stay at Torwood House as an anniversary present. I was elated. I have to say that despite the reports I had already been given, nothing prepared me for the remarkable qualities of the owner Zoe. She is an amazingly kind-hearted, intelligent and superbly amusing host who has a knack of knowing when guests are looking for conversation or to be left to their own devices. The breakfast was outstanding and the home baked bread absolutely devine! The bed was incredibly comfortable and far, far better than any bed I have slept in outside my own home.

If you are looking to spend some time in this part of Kent - I would highly recommend Torwood House as being your choice of accommodation.

It's a long time I stayed in a traditional British B&B and from my experience here it was well over due.

Our stay was first rate; the rooms were lovely - stylish and comfortable, breakfast was plentiful and tasty, and the welcome and attention from Zoe the B&B's owner was lovely.

Overall I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this B&B ...other establishments, take note this is how it is done properly!

Room Tip: Front room is the best

Having stayed at other 5 diamond b and b's we were disappointed with the lack of variety
at breakfast although the food was nicely cooked. Minor irritants which could easily be corrected were the lack of a hook on the back of the bathroom door, lack of good quality coat hangers, proper size bath towels and lack of good quality toiletries.

Torwood House was a lovely stay and our room was very spacious with a four poster bed! We thoroughly enjoyed our Full English breakfast and the warm baked bread was a scrummy delight.

Zoe was a great host, friendly and warm and made us feel very welcome.
