Tracy and David gave us such a wonderful holiday. Absolutely nothing was too much trouble for them. The Elmdene B & B is spotlessly clean and each room is tastefully decorated. We can't fault the place or the hosts. We'll definitely return. Thank you so much.

Great hospitality, very clean and tidy. Everything is cured by David and Tracy, the owners, extremely accurate and precise. Location is perfect, close to the beach and toTorquay downtown. I could only suggest it!

This is our second year with Tracy & David at the Elmdene. Staying here is like being enveloped in a warm hug. Tracy & David cannot do enough to make your stay the best it can be. David's breakfasts are amazing, everything cooked fresh to order & locally sourced. We would not consider staying anywhere else.

This superb B&B has won numerous extremely prestigious awards. All very well deserved. The welcome is very warm and my room was better than expected. Everything was very clean and the breakfasts were really well cooked and nice and hot.

The Elmdene is a gem close to the sea front and Torquay's attractions. It has lovely rooms and breakfast is great. There is sufficient off street car parking for all guests. David and Tracy are great hosts. I would recommend the Elmdene unreservably.

The owners of the Elmdene really go out of their way to make sure their guests are comfortable and welcome. The rooms are very large and spacious, and spotlessly clean and the location is excellent. I'd definitely book to stay here again!

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!
