We arrived at the hotel and were immediately made to feel welcome by the hosts Carol and Andy. Our bags were taken upstairs and a pot of tea was ready and waiting for us in the lounge. The hotel is small but perfectly proportioned. Our room was room 8 (a loft room). It was modern in décor and a very good size for such a reasonable price. Plenty of storage and everything we could possible have needed, in more than generous quantities. Breakfast was terrific too, don’t think that because this is a small hotel you won’t have much choice because there is so much to choose from and everything we ordered was a delight. (I have developed a bit of a thing for their pancakes with maple syrup, summer fruits and crème fresh….lush!)
Whilst Elmdene is situated close to a railway line I don’t think I heard a train more than twice and it was very quite so please don’t let that put you off staying. The hotel is located in a very peaceful area away and is a short walk from the quieter end of beach.
Would we visit again?……….Too right we would! Did we want to leave……….nope! Carol and Andy are complete stars.
