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

A colleague and I stayed here whilst working at the theatre in Torquay. Jane and Martin are simply the loveliest hosts, they made us feel exceptionally welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The room was beautifully decorated (like the rest of the property) with lovely little details; beautiful towels, nice toiletries, the most luxurious sheets and very comfortable beds.... More

I cannot recommend the Daylesford highly enough - Jane and Martin greeted me so warmly and they have really thought of everything to make sure that the stay is as comfortable as possible (right down to the filtered water in the rooms, kept in 'Alice in Wonderland' style Kilner bottles!). I'm an actress currently touring the UK with a show,... More

We stayed for two nights with friends. Our rooms (and the rest of the hotel) were absolutely spotlessly clean. The rooms are well equipped with excellent quality goods, comfy beds and beautiful bed linen. Breakfast was amazing. Everything you could possibly want .... Even continental if you dont want full and all the trimmings. Highly recommend Janes home made yoghurt.... More

We had a fantastic time at the Daylesford. Our hosts were extremely friendly and welcoming. We had coffee and cake on arrival which was delicious. Breakfast was fab and the room spotless. Would certainly recommend for a peaceful retreat to the English Rivera. Thank you for a lovely peaceful weekend. Rich and Michelle
