Reviewed October 10, 2013

we arrived early for a week stay in the english riveira, we were greeted by a friendly showround and despite being early we were quickly shown to our sea view room , the room had everything we needed apart from a tv remote , however everything was in the room that we needed for our stay , the room was on the small side but that was the premium you pay for the sea view , we enjoyed the fresh cooked breakfast which far exeeded some of the breakfasts we have had in the more superior high star hotels , we left early due to unforseen circumstances but this was no problem for adam and he did everything he could to help us and we will return to complete our stay.

Thanks for your comments, I hope your sister's ok, it's a shame you had to leave early.

We only realised the remote was missing when you left - I thought you might have picked It up by accident! - it must've been a previous guest. We've got a new one now though!

See you again I hope - thanks for booking direct!

We only stayed for one night and arrived quite late but were still made to feel to very welcome by the owner (Adam). The room was very comfortable, the price was very reasonable and the breakfast was excellent. If you are looking for a small(ish) hotel with a genuinely friendly and welcoming service then look no further.

We stayed for 9 nights and everything about the accommodation was excellent. You couldn't have better owners than Anita and Adam. Nothing was too much trouble to make your stay comfortable and unforgettable. We holiday in this part of Devon every year as I have relations here and there is no doubt that we will use this accommodation again.

We stayed here for 3 nights and were very happy with our choice. Adam, the owner, greeted us and showed us round on arrival. We had booked too late to get a room with a seaview (despite booking about 2 months in advance!) so chose a standard double room. It was fairly small but more than adequate for what we wanted - we weren't planning to spend much time in it! The bed was comfortable, the shower was good and the towels huge and fluffy although the lighting was a bit dim.
The breakfasts were excellent - a very wide choice of cereals including 3 types of Dorset Cereals muesli, fresh fruit, yogurts etc, and the cooked breakfast also had a large number of components! All the staff were really lovely and helpful. The dining room is light and airy with a view of the pool.
We spent part of one evening in the bar chatting to Adam who is very engaging and interesting - the conversation ranged far and wide!
Unfortunately we didn't get to use the swimming pool as the weather had taken a turn for the worse! It's a 5-10 minute (downhill) walk to the seafront and town centre so very convenient.

Room Tip: The rooms at the back will be quieter - we were occasionally disturbed by revellers in the street ou...

Thanks for your kind review.

It's very rare for people to be disturbed by noise at the front. We're away from the nightlife and the coach hotels up the road don't tend to attract night clubbers!

See you again I hope - maybe next time you'll get to use the pool!

If you are looking for excellent value accommodation, close to town - then look no further than the homely Cimon. You won’t find blue rinse, coach parties here!
Adam and his staff, bend over backwards to provide the guests with a great service. Vegetarians are catered for as well. There is a definite family feel to the place.
The cosy downstairs bar is a great place to end your evening and it has a good range of wines - no doubt scrutinised by Adam! And if the weather had been awful, which thankfully it wasn't - it was useful to know there was plenty to do with the pool table and range of games and books.
So if you succumb to the charms of Torquay, I am sure you will be back time and time again. Well done, Adam and Anita – your hard work is appreciated!

Thanks for the lovely review! I can confirm that we tested every wine before making up the wine list - it was a tough job having to sample so many bottles to come up with our list... I'm glad it was appreciated! See you again I hope - please book direct in future!
