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

My wife and I have had a great break in Torquay. We were made very welcome as soon as we arrived for our 4 night stay.Our room and bathroom were quite small but was spotlessly clean and comfortable. Tea / coffee /chocolate making facilities were provided in the room. Our breakfast were very good and cooked to order. The bar... 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

Great small, family run hotel close to town, beach and restaurants. Swimming Pool was fab for our 11 and 8yr old boys, lovely and warm despite British weather! Fantastic breakfast and great to have the bar for an evening drink post dinner. We had the family room, which was lovely and spacious, my mother had a double on the ground... More
