We arrived on the 15/9/14 for 4 nights. This was our second holiday at the Elmdene. Once again "Excellent" Andy and Carol great hosts. Breakfasts were great, rooms spotlessly clean. There is always plenty of room to park the car. See you both next year.

We stayed in this lovely guest house for 7 days and were delighted with the service and friendliness of Carol and Andy. Comfortable and well appointed room. Great choice at breakfast with local produce all freshly prepared. Would definitely return to this guest house on our next visit to Torquay and will recommend to family and friends.

Very impressive rooms with everything you need. Spotlessly clean and well furnished. Breakfast had all the choices you need and cooked to perfection. Charming couple, only too pleased to make ones stay a memorable one. Very good value for money as well. Will definitely stay here again.

Stayed here towards the end of July so a bit late with this but have to say we had a fantastic 4 night stay at the Elmdene. Our room was very comfy and like everywhere else in the hotel, was spotlessly clean. The breakfast was fantastic too - all cooked to perfection but what makes this place special is the... More

All the reviews are absolutely correct. We very much enjoyed our three night stay here and the room was very comfortable. Andy and Carol have thought of everything to make your stay hassle free. Breakfasts were excellent - lots of choice and beautifully cooked. Since we were on foot the location close to a bus stop and the station could... More

What a lovely place to stay! Our hosts were most welcoming even though we arrived early. We stayed in room 3 and it was the best room we have stayed in. There was every thought given for our comfort including bath robes. Also a wonderful bathroom attached to this room.

You always get looked after that bit better in a B&B. In fact you always get looked after that little bit better at The Elmdene. You get the attention when you require it, and the space when you don't, and this is the qualities of excellent hosts. Excellent hosts in an excellent bed and breakfast. Everything is exactly as you... More

We stayed at Elmdene again for three nights at the beginning of September. This was our second visit and it was still as good as we remember from our first visit. Andy and Carol are perfect hosts and nothing is too much trouble. We stayed in room 2 which is large and spotlessly clean. The en-suite is immaculate. Breakfast is... More

This was the second time that my husband and I stayed at Carol & Andy's wonderful chic B&B and can't wait for our next visit. They are so very natural at making you feel at home. We sat in the lounge/bar area on one evening with Andy and we chatted for ages like old mates ( putting the world to... More
