“perfect find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2012

My husband and I were very fortunate to find the Daylesford by chance. Simon and Dianne could not have done more for us, giving us lots of local information and made our stay extremely enjoyable.Our room was very tastefully presented and spotlessly clean. Hopefully we will have the opportunity to return and would definitely recommend a stay at the Daylesford.

From the moment we walked through the door, to the time we were going home, what an enjoyable experience!
Simon and Dianne couldn't do enough for us, however were not intrusive which is always a bonus!
The room was very comfortable, spotlessly clean, with good quality linens and fluffy towels.
Location wise it was perfect, being a level walk to the sea front and the harbour, through the lovely grounds of Torre Abbey and the park. However the more able bodied could walk into the town and shopping area by going up the road (a fairly steep hill).

I have just returned from a 4 night stay with my 80 year old mother, who is disabled. Simon and Dianne went out of their way to make us welcome and comfortable, providing a room on the ground floor with a walk in shower. The awards for breakfasts are well deserved - a particularly favourite was the scrambled egg and smoked salmon, and the freshly picked figs!!

Their recommendations of places to eat were excellent, especially The Elephant, No. 7 and The Orange Tree!

Thank you both for making our stay so enjoyable - we will be back!!

We have just returned home after a wonderful overnight stay at The Daylesford. Simon and Dianne are the most charming hosts, we received such a very warm welcome, which felt like they welcoming us as friends into their absolutely beautiful home. We cannot fault this place, from the very comfortable bed to the superb breakfast, a first class experience all round and we hope to make a return visit very soon. We highly recommend The Daylesford to anyone wishing a quiet, relaxing stay in beautiful surroundings.
