I agree with all the good reviews this delighful B & B has received. The rooms were lovely and everything is spotlessly clean. Simon and Diane are very friendly and helpful. They gave us plenty of info on the area and the restaurants we tried on their recommendation were excellent. They even gave us a lift to the station when we left as one of our party is getting on a bit. I'd definately book it again if I was back in the area.

  • Liked — cleanliness and friendliness of owners
  • Disliked — It was a longish walk from town
  • Tips/Secrets — make sure you ask for pub and food recommendations

This hotel is an absolute gem of a place and well worth a visit if you are intending to spend a few days in Torquay visiting the locality or to use it as a base for any of South Devon's many attractions. The owners who managed to find time to greet all their guests it seemed made one feel very welcome on arrival through the delightful entrance hall - gladly advising you of where to find choice eateries and places of interest nearby and clearly show interest in your journey to and from the hotel.

The family bedroom was tastefully decorated and the beds very comfortable indeed.The room was of a good size (room 1) there being ample storage and hanging space and the cleanlyness was superb with towels replaced freshly each day. The tea/coffee tray with complimentry mineral water bottles was very pleasing to the eye top the thirsty traveller and a very modern clean bathroom added to the comfort of plush surroundings and esquisite decor that is apparent through the hotel that we saw.The owners clearly take pride in their hotel and its grounds and fellow hoteliers in the area should take note! We intend to stay here each time we visit Torquay in the future and will be recommending friends and colleagues to follow suite. I could not fault the place if only I could have a lie-in and enjoy the beds past midday!

We were shown the delightful breakfast room and informed of times and the service - and when we arrived for breakfast the large choice did no way disappoint - all cooked and prepared lovingly by the owners with offers of replenishment a-plenty. I recently stayed at a larger sprawling coaching hotel in the Belgrave Road area and the Daylesford knocks spots of that place with just the obvious close attention to detail in so many ways. This hotel has fine air of relaxation about the place and this is noticable sat silently reading complimentry newspapers and magazines in the plush lounge or sat on the well kept sun terrace at the front of the hotel. Not a sound of movement or traffic to be heard!

The style and decor of the hotel's communal places is notably very plush and comfortable and the fact that this is family owned and managed meant the attention to detail and service is notably remarkable. The hotel has only about ten rooms (I think) so we were attended to very well indeed despite the hotel being full.The exterior area has potted plants, a small well kept garden and sun terrace and is very close to the sea front and all attractions and local shops. The hotel is also very handy and easy to find when one arrives in the town and I will as I have stated refer all my friends to stay here in future. Small clearly is best so this hotel deserves a glowing report from me - even the hotel cat seemed to want to make the guests feel at home. Well done to the owners!!
