“Lovely and warm hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2010

We had 10 lovely days at this hotel. Never been in a hotel with such a warm hosipitality of the owner Dianne and Simon. Breakfast is excellent and the rooms are more than clean. They are little bit small but nicely interieur in victorian style. You can always have a little smalltalk with the owner and they give you a lot of advises and informations for what you can see and where to eat.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2009

We stayed at the Daylesford for 2 nights and we enjoyed every minute of it.
We were welcomed by the owner in the lounge as a family member with a cup of tea and biscuits. Simon took time to give us lots of information about Torquay, its surroundings and its restaurants etc... We were showed our room wich was super clean and well furnished. The beds were confortable and the bathroom had everything you needed ( shampoo, bodylotion etc..)The only thing that did'nt always work was the WiFi internet connection. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice and excellent fresh food ( try the smoked salmon with scrambled eggs, its delicious ). We only regreted that we could'nt stay longer. Thank you Dianne and Simon for your warm welcome.
Merci Simon pour cet excellent séjour. Je recommande chaudement ce petit hotel familial à tous ceux qui visite la région. C'est un exemple d'hospitalité à l'Anglaise.

The whole experience was first class, The Daylesford is situated within easy walking distance of Torquay seafront, harbour and town centre. The room we had was spotlessly clean, bed comfortable, the small lounge was ideal to relax and read in or watch television. The breakfast was very good and the service provided by Dianne and Simon was excellent. Very friendly, informative and helpful.

We stayed at the Daylesford between the 5th - 12th of Sept 2009 the hospitality from Simon and Diane was excellent. The breakfasts were wonderful especially the poached eggs. The tips both Simon and Diane gave for places to visit and to eat were very good especially the little gem Sidmouth. I would love to return again soon, our stay at the Daylesford made our holiday extra special. Cheryl and Martin Phillpott

What a lovely place, lovely owners, and great service. We could not have found a better hotel, or a better welcome, anywhere else. We stayed at the Daylesford on the weekend of our 19th wedding anniversary, and we were made to feel very welcome indeed. Fabulous hosts, and thank you for recomending Totness and Dartmouth, both great places to visit. Will be sure to visit again soon. Nick & Tina Cheltenham
