Just back from another lovely week at The Elmdene. Tracy & David are excellent hosts, providing us with a welcome cup of tea on arrival & a fabulous breakfast every day. The bar was well stocked & we had a thoroughly enjoyable time. Everything is well maintained and very clean. Can't wait for next year to do it all again!

We stayed at the Elmdene for a week in July 2016 and found it to be a fantastic experience from start to finish. The owners greeted us and spent time chatting with a cup of tea. They provided very accurate and useful information on local amenities and restaurants. The room (2) was brilliant with a small lounge, bedroom, ensuite. It... More

If you enjoy excellent standards, passionate committed friendly, helpful owners and a great breakfast you found the right place here. If you are cheeky enough ask for an extra sausage! Truly the overall experience at this establishment is fantastic and all the awards and more are very well deserved.

We stayed at The Elmdene and it was just perfect. The owners were lovely, we were greeted at the door, offered a nice cup of tea and sat and chatted about the local area, best places to eat and to visit.

Most certainly the best accomodation we have used. The cleanliness, food, hospitality were first class. Would most certainly go back and would recommend to any would be travellers. The situation was superb and good access to the seafront without any noise. Best wishes to the owners who have done a magnificent job.

Our second trip and again everything was perfect. We stayed in room 1 which was large, beautifully furnished with an excellent shower room. David & Tracey are great hosts and David's breakfasts are second to none. Good parking, lovely lounge, sunroom and dining room and all spotlessly clean everywhere - what more could you want. Highly recommended.
