Second Night in Penzance.

Posted Sep 30, 2012
Pros: Great owners. Very friendly and helpful. Big rooms. Lovely English breakfast. Very clean.
Cons: Stairs
Location: Penzance is a lovely little town in Cornwall. The B&B was in walking distance of the main part of town as well as the beach and shops.
We had one night in this hotel in Penzance following the train trip from London. I had mixed up the nights, but the B&B was very helpful in suggesting another place to stay for that night. They looked after our luggage after we picked up a our car. It was very clean, a our room was large. We also had a great full English breakfast which was a good start to the day. Very lovely and helpful owners.

We stayed 2 nights at Torwood House. The owners, Linda and Steve were most friendly, nice and cosy room, quiet neighbourhood however only 2 minutes walk from the seafront. Very good parking, room maintenance over expectations, wide range of breakfast in the morning. Very satisfied, can only recommend this place.

We found this very useful for a stopover on our journey. We arrived quite late in the evening but we were expected and welcomed. Quiet and comfortable en suite room. Friendly and helpful staff.

Torwood hotel - close to promenade walk

Posted Apr 15, 2012 on Hotels
Our room was ready even though we arrived at 8.30 in the morning, which was much appreciated after a long train journey. They even changed the arrangements to a twin bedded room in the double room allotted to us. The proprietors are a kind and really helpful couple.

Fantastic Torwood

Posted Apr 1, 2012 on Hotels
Torwood House was absolutely fantastic! Our landlord and landlady were incredibly friendly, hospitable and helpful, for instance provided us at once with British three-pin adapters, as our computers were Continental two-pin. We haven't got the same service in some 4-star hotels!
