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....

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...

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
