We had stayed at another Guest house and had a terrible experience. It was such a relief to be met by a very charming hostess. We were up graded to a lovely large room with a very pleasant out look. The breakfast was very nice. There was plenty of parking.

We visited Torquay in october 2013. Elmington hotel situated on the hill near Torquay railroad station (2 minutes by walk). But trains were almost inaudible! Seaside and Torquay main beach are in 10 minutes by walk. Hotel has not real seaview - the thin water strip only! So if you like to listen to waves - you'd better look for... More

We needed a hotel convenient to Torquay Rail Station and the Elmington Hotel filled the bill in every respect. A cosy room, tasty breakfasts and a very warm welcome from the lovely Liza (yes, 'z') were just what we needed as we were in town for a funeral. It would be nice to come back 'in season' so that we... More

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. A hearty welcome, nice airy room, wonderful breakfast and the caring attention of the manageress. Special mentioning: wonderful quality bed.Quiet surroudnings! Liza was very caring for our wellbeing and the best ways to see all the treasures of Torquay, paington, Brixham, Kingswear and Dartmouth. Lovely.

This hotel was brilliant everything you could ask for, Liza was very warm and welcoming she went out of her way for us would stay there again no problem. The breakfast was filling and hot and the view from the breakfast room was good.

Booked online last minute and was very pleased with our stay. Quiet location, about 15 mins walk from the marina. Lisa , the owner, was very friendly and welcoming and made us feel very at home. Great breakfast in the morning too. Added bonus was the outdoor swimming pool. A very relaxing and enjoyable stay. Thank you Lisa.

Booked three nights for four of us to stay in early September as we are travelling to Devon to get married, but wanted something low-key without too much fuss or expense. The Elmington Website claims they have a restaurant for evening meals, so we wanted to check whether they could cater for us and a few extra guests (no more... More
