Some definite positives with the pool, helpful service and location. Lovely old house that has had the rooms carved up. So now small rooms - mine on the first floor with a sea view was too small. wardrobe sticking out into room at odd angle because not enough space for it. shower/wet room so small it was inadequate - you...

Thank you for your review! You are very right that we are a small hotel/guesthouse with good staff and a heated outdoor pool and plenty of parking ( a big advantage in Torquay). We pride ourselves in offering good service. All our 14 rooms are very different in layout, size and interiors. If you are after a comfy, relaxed place... More

It's unfortunate that you never get the perfect holiday. Our last holiday was to Scarborough and although the apartments were beautiful, parking was an issue. No such issue at the Cimon though as they have their own large carpark so you are guaranteed a space. We arrived at said carpark in excellent time and the owners very kindly had the... More

Thank you very much for writing the review. As you mentioned we cannot really do much about some of the bathrooms as the building has been converted this way. There are however rooms with larger bathrooms available. There is a notice in the bathroom that towels left on the bathroom floor will be replaced - so if you did that... More

Well positioned, absolutely spotlessly clean and fresh room, the "compact" room was quite adequate for the two of us. Really good breakfast served by very polite, pleasant and efficient staff. An all round very pleasant stay. We would definitely recommend the Cimon.

Their own web site says welcome to our hotel but on arrival it is clearly a guest house and not a 4 star as indicated. The pool area is nice and breakfast was good but the room was really small and the en suite was so small you could not move in it and the shower you could not use... More

Dear Nigel, Thank you for your review. We are a family run hotel/guest house and if you saw the pictures on our website you can make out that we are not a large place. As for the room I do get disheartened with people not reading the details of our rooms properly. We are not selling our compact double rooms... More

The Cimon is advertised as 4 star, but I would actually say it's more like a 2 or low end 3 star hotel. The hotel is in need or refurbishment throughout. Our room was tiny - there was no space for two people to pass anywhere in the room. It was also damp. The en-suite was terrible - again very... More

Thank you for your review! I guess a hotel in Salcombe or Dartmouth would have been better suited for your adventure. Torquay is a great place to visit and many people spend a week or more here in the Bay. I cannot change the fact that you did not like Torquay or The Cimon. The room is certainly not damp... More

We booked the Cimon for a long weekend break after one of our friends was unable to travel abroad. My friend had a look on Tripadvisor and saw the great reviews for The Cimon. We were keen to find a hotel with a pool close to the sea so we could keep the illusion of being abroad and as a... More

We stayed just 2 nights. The room was very small but ok for overnight. Bathroom so narrow that even teeth brushing was a bit of gymnastic. Breakfast nice and satisfying. The best is the hotel's location. Decoration and furniture from cheaper end so having 4 stars is a bit overrated. Personal very pleasant, pool small but good for a quick... More

Thank you very much for the review. We have all sorts of different room types and if you book a superior room there is more space. We do say that our small rooms are mainly for short breaks. We are not a boutique hotel and are very relaxed in our approach and hope most people find it comfy and value... More
