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

We had another lovely couple of nights at the Daylesford. Jane and Martin greeted us on arrival with slices of delicious sponge cake and tea and coffee which we enjoyed in the lounge (which has been changed round since our last visit - very nice!). We had "our" ground floor room which is spacious, spotless and so comfortable. As usual,... 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.

We arrived at 7pm on Thursday evening and were promptly greeted by Jane and Martin: from that moment on we were treated like friends.

Hosts Jane & Martin extended a genuinely warm welcome on arrival and their friendly yet unobtrusive care of their guests and attention to our needs was exceptional. The rooms were well equipped, pleasantly decorated, warm (it was really cold outside) and extremely comfortable. Another surprise was the quality and variety of the breakfast selection. Definitely something to write home about.... More
