The Daylesford is a spotlessly clean B&B run by Jane and Martin who welcome you like long lost friends. The rooms are homely and comfortable with lovely soft bed linen and towels. Breakfast is delicious, both the full English and the many other alternatives on offer and Jane's banana cake is a tasty bonus. Jane and Martin are very knowledgeable...

We were shown to our room (The Green room) which was on the ground floor and immaculately clean with a lovely en-suite with toiletries provided. Breakfast the following morning...

Many thanks to Martin and Jane for making both myself and a colleague very welcome at the Daylesford. The rooms were spotless and extremely nice with plenty of room.. They were really attentive to our requirements especially at breakfast ...where nothing was any trouble and ensured that we were satisfied with our food...

I don't usually review hotels, but this one deserves praise. What a welcome! Coffee, and Jane's own delicious lemon drizzle cake. Just what I needed after the journey and never get in lesser establishments. I loved the decor and the warm, friendly atmosphere. The rooms were spotless, crisp white cotton sheets, fluffy white towels, beautiful toiletries and a wide choice...

Recently spent a week staying in the junior suite. Everything is faultless, and the hospitality and breakfasts are perfect, everything is spotlessly clean and the location is really good. Jane and Martin run one of the best establishments in the whole of Devon.
