We stayed at The Daylesford for my girlfriends birthday and was delighted by the beautiful decor, excellent service and outstanding breakfast provided by Martin and Jane. Our stay went beyond expectations and I would highly recommend to others x

Arrived early and we could check in immediately, with a nice view of the cricket pitch. Our room was spotlessly clean and Martin and Jane treated us as individuals rather than just a room number. The breakfast was superb, Try the home made yoghurt gorgeous. We will definetely stop again.

Having stayed several times with my husband at The Daylesford this time I came with my Mum for a few nights. As usual we were greeted with a warm welcome and the offer of tea and cakes, a nice gesture after a long journey.

This was our first time visiting Torquay and we booked the Daylesford on the basis of reviews we read. Our experience exceeded expectations and was better than a lot of top hotels we have stayed at. Spotless room, comfortable bed, decent shower, fab breakfast and brilliant hosts. We will probably have to visit Torquay again for work purposes and will... More

The Daylesford is a little gem in Torquay, Jane and Martin are the best of hosts. The rooms are immaculately clean and fresh. The breakfast is superb with plenty of choice and nothing is too much trouble. The Daylesford is within walking distance of the town with all the restaurants and bars.
