Convenient and clean hotel
Enjoyed how week in Torquay. Hotel very clean, needs modernising as I feel old fashioned lots of ornaments everwhere. However the pots of flowers and gardens are beautiful as nice decking areally to sit in the evenings. The pool was not clean when we arrived full of leaves and dead flys but was cleaned 2 days later but this put us off using it.The location is excellent for excursions catching the train which is 2 mins walk to station. Only 6 min walk to beach, shops and attractions. The owner of hotel is very friendly helpfull and hard working, food was excellent could have exactly what you wanted for breakfast a shame no evening meal offered. Would definitely book again

Nice hotel
I'd recommend The Elmington if you are looking for a friendly, inexpensive stay. My wife and I stayed here whilst on business, but we stayed on for a couple of nights to enjoy the area. The friendly and hospitable owner is keen to impress. The rooms are satisfactory, although I found our olive coloured bathroom suite very dated (although very clean). The communal areas were fine, although if i was the owner, I'd think about bringing someone in with an eye for design (without spending money!). The grounds are well maintained and pretty, although we didn't spend any time there. Breakfast was excellent...I just wished they served beyond 9am especially at the weekend! The clientele was all middle aged, which suited us late night/early morning drunken arrivals!

4 day break in August 2015
Good Points, clean and tidy guest house very close to railway station, exit via the car park, buses 5 minute walk. Very good buffet British breakfast. Free Wifi available. Watch out for inflexible breakfast time, 8am till 9am ONLY including Sundays, NO evening meals, towels changed every 3 days, no draught beer in bar despite advertising Bay beer. No inter-room phones or early morning wake up alarm. Personally feel the 4 star AA rating should be reviewed.

Weekend break in Torbay
We very much enjoyed our stay and were made very welcome by our friendly hostess. The location was perfect - just a short stroll from the train station, Torre Abbey, sea front and into town. The guest house/hotel has a good-sized car park at the rear, adjacent to the gardens. Everywhere seemed spotlessly clean, our room was lovely, and as an extra bonus we had a great view over the bay. We did not use the pool, but it looked very clean and inviting. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful (buffet style - eggs, bacon, sausages etc); no evening meals, but there are copious eateries available nearby. The only slight frustrations were the lack of Wi-Fi (my mobile and sat-nav signals were also poor) and having to run the shower for some time before the hot water came through - but as it was a short break only this did not overly affect our stay. Overall - very good and we would be very happy to book again.
