Spent 4 lovely days in Torquay July at the Cimon. Adam and Anita very welcoming couple. Rooms nice and clean and we were upgraded when a superior room became free without asking. Loved the outside area by the poolside. Would definitely stay there again and recommend it. Good breakfast. Comfortable bar area with lots of games in case of British bad weather. Good luck Adam and Anita. x

Room Tip: superior room very nice and large

stayed here for 4 nights in July - hotel clean, breakfasts excellent, pool super, little dated in some areas garden areas need tidying - but owners relatively new and probably lots to do..... All in all would stay again and would recommend.

We stayed here for 3 days during school summer holidays. Room was fantastic, the children had their own room with bunk beds and a bathroom annexed to our room, which meant we all had our own space. The hotel is a short walk from the beach and we all enjoyed lots of time in the hotel's own pool too, which was lovely and warm. The hotel was clean throughout and the breakfast was good, catering to various dietary requirements. The owners were very helpful and friendly and we would recommend staying here to anyone. We will definitely visit again too.

We had a few days here in June and ended up extending by a night.
That’s all down to the owners and their helpful staff.
Adam and Anita made us feel at home from the minute we arrived to when we left.
The room and bathroom were clean and comfortable with modern decor.
Plenty of storage space, with tea and coffee making facilities in the room.
The breakfast is great and the conversation in the bar is lively.
We had a couple of “nights in” as the good old British weather was not the best, the company including Adam and Anita made it feel like we were old friends meeting up in the local.
Lots to do locally with a 5 minute walk to the harbour and town centre and some great local restaurants.
A heated pool which we didn’t use but plenty did even with the poor weather.
Well, all in all it was so good we booked to go back in August.

decided to book a few days away last minuet and very happy that we picked this hotel. I've stayed in Torquay before and this is by far my favourite. The owners are really friendly as are the staff, they were more then happy to chat and give us advise about where to go. The hotel is about 5 minuets walk from the harbour and the shops, Anita (one of the owners) had lots of maps to drew the best route to take for us to keep. The Hotel it's self is really lovely, we had the see view room and the view of the harbour was well worth the extra. The breakfast room has views of the pool which is heated and there is a nice little bar if you want a few in the hotel. I went with my boyfriend for a nice weekend away, there are also family rooms available. Will defiantly be booking this hotel next time.

Very friendly hosts in this b&b up the hill from the Torquay harbour. A nice atmosphere in the downstairs bar with hosts stopping to chat. Host turned on the heating in the outdoor pool when we requested it. Newly converted family room was very good value. Tip to breakfasters; have the tea, not the coffee!

Thanks for your comments. Sorry if you didn't like the coffee we serve at breakfast - it's freshly brewed Douwe Egberts filter coffee, definitely not the cheapest!

Me and my boyfriend decided to book a weekend away quite spontaneously and decided after looking online that hotel cimon was a good choice and we were right!
Although we arrived at ten pm when check in closed at eight the owner waited up for us and still gave us a mini tour. We were then shown to our room and found we had been upgraded to one of the best rooms when we had only paid for a compact room. As this was out first stay away as a couple this was fantastic!
The room was clean and comfortable, with plenty of storage space and facilities. We were very happy with the bed which was so soft and big.
The breakfasts were great with plenty of choice, eaten in the specially labelled breakfast room which is sunny and open, overlooking the pool. We only found time to use the pool once but it was a lovely temperature and plenty of space to splash about in :)
Only thing I can possibly fault is perhaps that the hotel is a bit of a walk from the main Torquay touristy area and is on top of a hill. Also, because the beds are two singles with a double on top we found if there was an big movements on our part we had to get out and push them together again.
We both agreed that we would definitely stay here again! Thanks very much for a lovely weekend.
