“lovely hotel”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

The hotel is in a quiet location but only a couple of miles from the town centre, with parking on site. The owners Marita and Roy were very welcoming and friendly. The room was spotless with a lovely ensuite (ours included a bath). The bed was really comfortable. The room had everything we needed also including a fridge, ironing board and electric fan. We requested a DVD player and were given one, the TV also had Freeview which was nice. There was also a kettle and we asked for more supplies of tea/milk/sugar which were given..nothing was too much trouble for Marita. There was plenty of choice at breakfast and the full English was superb. Finally, their adorable little dog Chip was often around to greet everyone. Looking forward to returning!

We stayed at the Hotel Iona for the fourth time again this year. Their standards of service are excellent, the rooms are tidy and the accomodation is well presented. We like this hotel because they do evening meals as well as bread and breakfast. all the meals were very good and Roy and Marita took good care of us all week. This has to be one of the best places to stay in Torquay and I recommend Hotel Iona to anyone looking to stay in the Torbay area.

Room Tip: Pick a room with a balcony.

We have just got back from spending a week at the hotel iona. As soon as we pulled up in the car we were greeted by chip. (if you have read previous reviews you will know he is the most gorgeous little dog u will ever have the pleasure to meet.) We were welcomed by the owners Roy and Marita who throughout the week went out of their way to make our stay at the iona really lovely. The room was exceptionally clean and comfortable with everything you need ie tea,cofee,fridge and clean bedding and towels everyday. We did not eat any evening meals there but if the quality of the breakfast is anything to go by then you cant go wrong. If there is one negative it is that when you leave chip to go upstairs you feel guilty when you turn back to see him sitting at the bottom of the stairs with his adorable little face staring back at you :-) ...just kidding. All that is left for me to say is if you are planning to go to Torquay then you cant go wrong by staying here. Thanks Roy and Morita for making us feel welcome....oh and of course chip!

Attended a Lions Clubs convention, and stayed for five nights we were delighted with our spotless, spacious & comfortable twin room with balcony, excellent breakfast and service, the owners were only too pleased to help at all times.
This little Hotel easily ranks amongst the the best we have stayed during almost 40 years, we would definitely recommend it to others and return ourselves.

Room Tip: Just ask for what you want (It may well be better)

Just spent a couple of Nights in this Hotel. What a Gem! Lovely friendly hosts Roy & Marita couldn't be more helpful.
It's only a 10 min walk to the front, it's in a very quiet location but there are Restaurants & Bars very close by.
The Room standard is very high & well appointed. Breakfast 1st class with multiple choices.
We'll definetly return!
