“John & Stella Caves say "believe what you read !!"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Just returned from a very relaxing 4 day stay at the cimon which we booked after reading the reviews. Believe them, this place is just as good as is reported. Adam and Anita are very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble or them. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, breakfast is excellent and if you decide to stay in and sample Anita's cooking on an evening then you will not be disappointed, every bit as good as meals we had in good class restaurants on the harbour front. Planning to return next summer with our son and his young family and would highly recommend this guest house to all.

Room Tip: just ask for adam's honest opinion

Was made so welcome, it was our first stay in this hotel and the reviews we had read did not let us down. Room was lovely, with good selection of teas and coffee. Breakfast was excellent, plenty of choice for everyone. The hotel is situated just 5 minutes from seafront and 2 minutes from town.The hosts were extremely friendly and couldn`t do enough. Are looking forward to our next stay.

Room Tip: We had the family room as the hotel was quiet and we wanted a sea view. Was a lovely room.

The Cimon is a pleasant 5-7 minute walk to the harbour with good shopping and pubbing along the way. You are surrounded by wonderful sights of architecture and history.

The delicious breakfast may be enjoyed in the sunny dining room or on the deck near the outdoor pool. There is a pub/lounge with a big screen TV.

The young couple, Adam and Anita, are very hospitable and accommodating and they have a pleasant and helpful staff.

Our room was spotless and nicely decorated, the bathroom was new and spacious with a large shower.

We really look forward to staying here again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Cimon.

Thanks Dave - I really enjoyed your company in the bar each evening - sorry about the size of the bar bill at the end of the week though :)

I had a wonderful 4 night stay at a great price. All the staff were polite, friendly and couldnt do enough for you. The owner would was very friendly and greeted you at breakfast to ensure you were happy and if he could do anything for you, and im not talking the type of owners you get that wont shut up and leave you alone! haha. The rooms are decorated as if you were at home and the beds are sooooo comfortable. There is a mix of people staying which was nice, young people such as myself (20), middle aged couple, families and older people. The morning breakfast was perfect not greasy and if you wanted to order 6 poached eggs a table you could :) I HAVE NO NEGATIVES ABOUT THIS HOTEL! Every time i visit torquay i will be staying there everytime!

Room Tip: All rooms are nice but i really liked the decore in 15 and 12. Talk to the owner and he will advice...
