Travelled with my girlfriend on the Friday night, despite not arriving until 11:30pm we were warmly welcomed in and shown to our room. The room was huge, almost as if it used to be 2 rooms as there were 2 bathrooms which worked out well for a "his & hers" bathroom style. There were lovely sea views from window and... More

Thank you for your review! You are right - we did knock some walls down this winter to create larger rooms for our guests. I am glad you had a good time and hope to see you both again! All the best! Anita More

Myself and my partner enjoyed a short break at The Cimon in early September (2014). The weather was perfect - warm and sunny. The hotel is welcoming and well presented and the staff are helpful and friendly. The Cimon is located about 8-10 minutes walk walk from the town centre and the sea front. Breakfast is good and cooked to... More

We have just returned from a last minute 5 night stay in a family room at The Cimon. It was the first time we had been to a hotel as a family having been self catering many times before. It was very nice to wake up in a spacious modern room with a sea view to then go and enjoy... More

This place is listed as a hotel on Tripadvisor but it is really a guest house or b&b. You have to ring to get in when you arrive, which is confusing if you are expecting a hotel-level of service with a proper lobby reception. I'm sorry I didn't have chance to use the pool area, as it looked very nice.... More

Thank you for your review! We are close to town and some of our rooms face the road which is why you might get some traffic noise in those rooms - most of the rooms face away from the road so are quieter. There are several guest houses listed on the hotel site on tripadvisor and as we offer more... More

Fantastic hotel. A friendly welcome. The room was clean and large. The breakfast was excellent and the staff friendly. Free parking and a pool. You can't ask for much more. We are planning to stay again soon.

We stayed for four nights mid September with my wife and I and my Mum and Dad in their 80s. We all had a great time and the staff and owners are very welcoming and friendly.

We had to book this on the run as another hotel had let us down at the last minute. Great parking, room and bathroom a little small but adequate. Great view. Decor tired but clean. Great breakfast. Very friendly and helpful staff. Booklet of attractions very helpful.

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
