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

We recently spent 3 nights at the Elmdene and cannot fault it in any way. We only stayed there as the B&B we normally stay at when visiting Torquay was full. However, we have no regrets as our entire stay was thoroughly enjoyable. The place is spotless and the breakfasts were excellent - you won't get better anywhere else. I... More
