The owners were a friendly, welcoming couple, who were happy to provide information on the area. The breakfast was fresh and delicious, and the BnB had such a comfy vibe with the honesty bar, and the chess board in the lounge room.

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.

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.

I would like to say thank you to Dave & Tracy for a great weeks holiday in sunny Devon. On arrival we were greeted with coffee and a smile.

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.
