The Daylesford is a comfortable guest house conveniently located for the promenade in Torquay. We stayed in the Junior Suite for eight nights. The rooms were always kept beautifully clean, as indeed is the whole of the house. There were many nice touches; bottled water in the rooms (replenished every day); bowls of fudge in the lounge and hall; and... More

The room was comfortable and beautifully clean. The breakfast was cooked to order and the fresh fruit and home made cake was a bonus. Should we visit Torquay again we... More

we stayed here last year in May and decided to come back as it was so lovely, all I can say is that this lovely hotel is even better now. Jane and Martin have put their own stamp on the rooms and the breakfast cake should be marketed by Jane ( homemade and delicious) The guest sitting room is really... More
