We booked two rooms as there were 4 of us and both were immaculately clean and had everything that you would need. The breakfasts were high quality and delicious. The hosts, Martin and Jane were very welcoming and helpful with good tips on things to see and restaurant recommendations. The location was only a 15 minute walk to the harbour... More

The Daylesford is a spotlessly clean B&B run by Jane and Martin who welcome you like long lost friends. The rooms are homely and comfortable with lovely soft bed linen and towels. Breakfast is delicious, both the full English and the many other alternatives on offer and Jane's banana cake is a tasty bonus. Jane and Martin are very knowledgeable... More

The Daylesford is a wonderful classy, elegant bed and breakfast. My partner and I traveled on a Friday afternoon and were greeted by name, with Tea and home made Chocolate Brownies. We were shown to our room (The Green room) which was on the ground floor and immaculately clean with a lovely en-suite with toiletries provided. Breakfast the following morning... More

I first reviewed The Daylesford in beautiful Torquay back in June 2013 & as we had enjoyed our stay so much, decided to pay another visit. We were not disappointed, we were greeted with a very welcome pot of tea & delicious home made cakes served in the guest lounge which, along with the dining room has been tastefully redecorated...

I don't usually review hotels, but this one deserves praise. What a welcome! Coffee, and Jane's own delicious lemon drizzle cake. Just what I needed after the journey and never get in lesser establishments. I loved the decor and the warm, friendly atmosphere. The rooms were spotless, crisp white cotton sheets, fluffy white towels, beautiful toiletries and a wide choice... More
