It's a great find its never to busy and is great for the lovers of the sea side.its quite far from the beach but you still get a beach view and the food is is of a good quality we enjoyed our stay. The swimming pool is warm and very clean also the owners are very pleasant and nice to talk to

Thanks for the nice review! We're only a 5 minute walk from the beach - pretty close but far enough away not to get any noise :)

My Husband and I stayed at the Cimon from the 28th July to 2nd August 2013. We had a very friendly welcome from Anita,we had booked a double which was small,as my Husband is tall, we were a bit disappointed, but would have managed. Anita said there was a cancelation and offered us a Superior room at a very good price. We accepted and it was very large,it also had four poster bed.
On meeting Adam at breakfast he was very chatty and helpful,the breakfast menu had a very good choice, and plenty of it. Staff were very helpful too.
It is a very popular hotel as all the rooms were fully occupied, we would highly recommend this Hotel for it's hospitality, friendly atmosphere, great food and cleanliness, We hope to come back one day with our Grandson,
Thankyou Adam & Anita

Room Tip: The superior room was really nice.

Thanks for the great review. The room you booked originally is described as a small double, which is ideal for a short break. The superior rooms are much nicer!
See you again soon I hope, with the grandson!

We had a 4 night stay at The Cimon, and we couldn't of asked for anything better. its situated in a perfect spot centrally, and has plenty of parking for the guests, which is handy in Torquay as parking elsewhere can be expensive.

Adam the owner was super friendly and helpful, and the atmosphere was really nice and relaxed. The pool was great and had everything you would need, deck chairs, tables, and towels are provided should you need them, which is very handy.

The Breakfast was also very good, you had plenty of choice from the continental style buffet, and on top of that had a great choice of cooked food too, everything from a full English to an Omellete.

The bar downstairs is a really nice place to be in the evening, its cosy, and feels very welcoming, and the drinks are cheap too :) it also has a free pool table and other bits of entertainment. and is a great place to chat and meet some of the other guests.

Our room was spot on and we couldnt of asked for more for the value, the bed was comfy and we were also had the seaview, everything was clean, and the rooms were made very promptly, every day by the time we got back from breakfast they were done.

Thank you to Adam and Anita for being so helpful and friendly. When we go back to Torquay there is no other place we would stay, if its fully booked when we want to go, then we will just book the following week!

Great little hotel. Staff all very friendly. Fab heated pool. Tab at the bar to save me running out of cash. Walking distance to town. Would recommend to anyone staying in Torquay. Stayed in the large family room which had a lovely big double bed and a separate room with bunks so i didn't have to listen to the children snoring.

We stayed at the Cimon for our 10th Wedding anniversary whilest I was 7 months pregnant and we couldnt have asked for a better welcome, Adam was very friendly and extremly helpful and accomodating, the Breakfast was lovely and the hospitality was second to none, we will definitely be returning with our family and would highly recommend this hotel weather you are traveling as a couple or a family this is a perfect place to stay.
