Run by the lovely Kim and Trevor, you will not be disappointed with this B&B in Torquay. It is tucked away in a quiet residential area five minutes (walk) from the sea, with ample parking. The interior is beautifully decorated and maintained, with modern furnishings, and very clean. Breakfast was a delight too! You can tell that Kim and Trevor take great pride in looking after the B&B and we'd not hesitate to book again if we're heading that way. Can't recommend this B&B too highly!

Having stayed at the Elmdene twice before some years ago, and wanting to visit Torquay again, we couldn’t wait to go back to the Elmdene and revisit this wonderful establishment. The 5* B&B is now run by Kim and Trevor, who were simply the best hosts. There is absolutely nothing negative to say about our recent experience; a spotless, beautifully furnished room with all facilities and tea, coffee and hot chocolate replenished daily. There were special personal touches, chocolates on arrival, a wonderful cream tea appeared in our room one afternoon, ironing facilities, bathrobes and slippers. The bed was large and very comfortable. The breakfasts were delightful and nothing was too much trouble for our waiter Trevor and his chef Kim ! Very special thanks to Kim and Trevor for their thoughtful concern to our situation. We will definitely return and hope it will be in the near future. Keep up the excellent work.

We can't recommend The Elmdene highly enough. We have been staying there for a few years now and every year it has lived up to our high expectations. The breakfasts are fabulous with a great choice and Kim and Trev are wonderful hosts, nothing is too much trouble. If you get the chance try the afternoon tea freshly prepared by Kim, we can't praise them enough. The rooms are also very very comfortable and spotlessly clean.
