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....

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,...

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....

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

After a great deal of research I decided to stop at the Daylesford and I have to say it surpassed expectations. I have stopped at many fine hotels around the world and the Daylesford knocks spots off a lot of them. It isn't just the fact that the furnishings are beautiful and tasteful it is in the main down to...
