More than just a B & B!! - Rating 5/5

Just like to say, our stay at Daylesford was excellent.From start to finish the host, Jessie, was attentive, professional and very warmly.She was very efficient, nothing was too much bother to her.Lovely person, we like to think of her as not just our host, but now our friend, that is the way she made us feel when leaving.Our bedroom (junior suite) was very comfortable, little things, like, free bottled cold water, a lovely touch.Pity about our weather (stayed August 2019.For English Riveira, pity dismissal, although this is outwith Daylesford control)!! We would and will certainly recommend this accommodation to all our friends.And hopefully, if we are ever visiting this area again, we will certainly look this stunning B &B up. Also, very thoughtful, of Jessie making our long drive home more comfortable to us, by making us up a very healthy smoothie, plus, lovely pack of grapes, and some bananas for us to take away.Very much appreciated and what a nice touch.Well done Jessie xx


Dear Mae:Thank you very much for staying with me. You are amazing guests. We appreciate your valuable feedback on our rooms, breakfast and amenities. I am looking forward to welcoming you on your next stay with me. With kindest regards, Jessie xx

Excellent B&B with fabulous owners - Rating 5/5

Arrived to Torquay after an 8 hour journey from London. The owners stayed up and provided a warm welcome, which was very much needed after being stuck in nightmare traffic!The rooms were cosy and very well decorated. Breakfast was well-cooked (ordered English/veggie breakfasts).We overslept on our last day there and therefore missed breakfast, but were provided with a lovely take-away bag of delicious cake and fruits. Would definitely recommend The Daylesford and will happily stay again if in Torquay.


Thank you for the review Rebecca and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. We would love to see you all should you ever visit Torquay again.Regards, Martin 7 Jane.
