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...

Our most recent stay at The Daylesford was for our Anniversary. We have stayed a couple of times now and will definitely return. Martin + Jane made our weekend wonderful with their attention to detail. Our room was spotlessly clean, the breakfast was delicious. A Warm greeting on arrival with a cuppa and lovely cake. A fantastic stay!!

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

Recently spent a week staying in the junior suite. Everything is faultless, and the hospitality and breakfasts are perfect, everything is spotlessly clean and the location is really good. Jane and Martin run one of the best establishments in the whole of Devon.

This is a lovely guest house. On arrival you are greeted by the owners Jane and Martin, with a cake and cup of tea. The room was immaculate in every way. The breakfasts were first class. You will be pampered if you stay here.

"Torquay Treasures" is an apt description of Jane and Martin. They go out of their way to ensure that your stay at the Daylesford is the best experience possible. A friendly e-mail following our holiday booking was an excellent start to our holiday experience, and a surprise meeting at the station also illustrates some of the "extras" that guests appreciate....

We enjoyed our short stay. The owners are very nice, helpful and kind. We had a very warm welcome although we came as a surprise. A cup of tee and a very yummi cupcake was waiting for us on our arrival. The rooms are very clean and nice decorated. It's very close only half an hour drive to the beautiful... More

Just spent two nights at the Daylesford, Jane and Martin were perfect hosts. My Husband is gluten free which for some is all too inconvenient. On arrival we were greeted with a lovely cup of tea and Jane had baked gluten free muffins, my Husband was delighted. Jane is super at baking, make sure you leave enough space after breakfast...
