This little Hotel is heaven on earth. I fully enjoyed my time there for a few days rest after a busy conference. Would love to come back to The Elmdene!!

3rd year of staying at Elmdene Hotel on business to attend the annual Waste & Recycling Show at Paignton. A friendly welcome awaits from Andy & Carol and hotel has very clean fresh rooms, lounge bar for evening drinks & bar meals available, breakfast choice very good - the only problem you will have is deciding on what to choose from the breakfast menu !
Good location for 4 min walk to station or 20 mins into Torquay via Abbey Gardens & seafront. .
Will be staying again next year.

Lovely small hotel in a tree lined street overlooking parkland with just a short walk to the seafront and other amenities. Very clean and nicely decorated room with matching furniture and lots of extra little touches not normally found in hotels. Excellent cooked to order breakfasts. Carol and Andy are friendly and helpful hosts available if you want to chat but unobtrusive if you didn’t. We would definitely recommend this hotel and can assure you that you will not be disappointed

Squeaky clean spacious room, a huge bed with lovely linen and pillows, quality furniture and small shower ensuite. Great breakfasts - can certainly recommend the smoked salmon and eggs ! Easy walk to station and seafront or bus stop few yards away. Owned by a very friendly, hardworking couple who go out of their way to ensure everyone is well catered for. Would definately recommend a stay here and hope to return soon.

Elmdene Hotel is a warm and friendly hotel with all the amenities you could wish for and just fabulous breakfasts. On our arrival Andy came up with cups of tea (or coffee) and biscuits while we settled in. The rooms had everything you needed, including lovely soft snuggly dressinggowns. Carol cooked the most amazing 5 star breakfasts. They are all freshly cooked, so be prepared to wait your turn. It is well worth waiting for. If we ever return to Torquay, this is where I would want to stay.
