I had read reviews of the hotel and decided to book. The facilities was exactly as it's showed the website. Great room, modern style and very clean. The breakfast was excellent. We felt like at home totally and recommend the hotel.

Just back from a long weekend @ the Elmdene in Torquay.
The trip was booked for my Dads 80th, he and Mum visited Torquay nearly every year for 2o years until the facility that they used to us shut down, so we wanted to take them back and re-visit the area. They certainly have found a new place to stay and i know that they will now be regular visitors. The Elmdene has it all very very friendly owner albeit Birmingham City supporters but I won't hold that against them!!! very,very modern well equipped rooms with everything catered for and somebody has put a lot of thought into these, indeed there is even a blower heater in the bottom of the wardrobe if you required additional heat. The breakfast is fantastic and made to order with not a hint of grease in sight!!! Oustanding!!!

I selected this hotel after reading tripadvisor and was not disappointed. The hosts were great, the style and finish of the accommodation was first class and the food was very good. I will certainly be back whenever I get the opportunity. Do not miss a gem of a hotel.

Arrived home from 5 day break at the Elmdene. Made very welcome by Carold and Andy who cannot do enough for you. Spotlessly clean, excellent breakfast cooked to order with good choice. Very good location - 5 mins walk from Torquay station and a short walk to buses to get into town centre. Parking also no problem. Would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and have every intention of returning.

My partner booked our trip to Torquay and was advised by the hosts we were going to get the smallest room at the B&B. We took it anyway as Torquay was very full that weekend.
Upon arrival we were greeted by our hosts and shown to our room. Although small it was well appointed impeccably clean and rather cozy and welcoming. Carol gave us the round up and was a great source of info.
Slept very well and even though hotel is in close proximitey to the train station don't recall hearing any traffic or train noise at all.
Breakfast options were great, of course we took the full english (excellent choice) cooked to order. GREAT BREAKFAST!!!!!

Overall well worth staying at Elmdene great location not far from the Abbey and a short walk to the centre of town. I would recommend this B&B to my friends and will definitely be staying there again on any future visits to Torquay area.
