Reviewed May 24, 2014

We had a lovely stay at the Cimon, the owners Adam and Anita were friendly and welcoming and nothing was to much trouble. The room was clean and very comfortable, also the breakfasts were second to none we were spoilt for choice. Great swimming pool which we enjoyed more than once. The bar was a comfortable welcoming place to spend the evening and get to know other guests and excellent cocktails. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

What a find!
My husband and I have just returned from a 4 day break at this lovely hotel and already thinking about when we can return!!
We just loved everything about it....great location, clean comfortable room, bar, pool, darts, free parking, excellent breakfast, and super service! What's not to like? Would have loved the opportunity to use the swimming pool too but weather not too good. Never mind, there's always next time.
I guess if you want grand 4 star luxury then this hotel is not for you, but if you want friendly, personal, honest hospitality like us, then this hotel is spot on!!
Thank you Adam and Anita for a truly great stay!

Room Tip: Sea view room added icing on the cake!!!

Welcoming check in.Very comfortable bed, warn swimming pool, the location for the main attractions is good as you are only 10 min way from the bars and restaurants along side the marina. Adam the owner was friendly and the breakfast lady very smiley and welcoming.
We could still use the facilities after check out as our train departed at 4pm, Unfortunately we left without a farewell, we haven't seen the good people to say goodbye. That is my second time and I will definitely book it again.

Room Tip: A double bed in room 7 is a Kind size. I would recommend that. :)

Booked a last minute weekend away in Torquay for myself and my 3 year old daughter, and was absolutely delighted with our stay at The Cimon. Lovely, friendly owners who were always available to help with any small thing. Fabulous swimming pool which was clean and heated - pool towels and sunbeds readily available. Nice breakfast, lots of little spaces in which to relax including a bar with a pool table. Great location, near the beach, harbour, shops and restaurants, and several tourist attractions, such as Living Coasts. I would definitely recommend this little gem of a hotel (or Hometel as my daughter nicknamed it). We'll be booking again this summer I expect.

Room Tip: Room number 14 does not have a bath and is on the top floor (a few floors away from the breakfast ro...

An excellent hotel & ideal for young families.
We were made to feel welcome the moment we arrived. Our family room was superb & both boys enjoyed having their bedroom partitioned from the living area & main bedroom. My six year old son said this was the best hotel he had stayed at & didn't want to come home.
Breakfast is made to order - delicious with plenty of options to choose from.
Sadly we didn't get an opportunity to use the pool which looked inviting.
Walking to Torquay sea front didn't take too long with the hotel in an ideal location away from the main seafront activities.
My sons have already bullied me into booking again.

Thanks for a great & hospitable stay.

Room Tip: Ideal for young families looking for peace quiet with hospitable options available.
