From the moment the proprietor opened the door to us we felt we were being offered a sincerely warm welcome, and sensed that nothing was too much trouble. A list of recommended restaurants was reeled off, but suffixed with "or if you just want to pick up a takaway from somewhere we'll set a table for you in our dining area if you like." You'll NEVER hear that said in a Holiday Inn!
The Cimon is nicely located. It's a short walk down a steep slope to the sea front, or a gentler further route through the High St. Accomodation was good, the room clean, and we left thinking "we'll have to come back some time."
Whilst chatting to the owner he hinted that we may have been able to get a better deal if we'd phoned him direct rather than use an agent. He suggested that in some instances he may be offer a pair of adjoining double rooms instead of a family room for the same price. The constraints of online booking forms do not allow for that type of flexibility, so it may well be worth your while phoning direct if you can't find a deal you're happy with online.
All told we were very pleased. Above all it's the obvious effort Adam and Anita are putting into trying to ensure that all their guests leave without complaint that made all the difference. I'd unreservedly recommend the Cimon to all.
