I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone. We had 3 days, 2 nights here, and had such a wonderful time. Clean rooms with great views. The staff are so helpful nothing was too much for them. We spend 2 lovely evenings in the pool and then in the hotel bar. The whole atmosphere is friendly, homely and relaxing. Oh and i must not forget to mention the breakfast, wow, it is amazing, so much to choose from and lots of it , just the right way to start you day. Thanks everyone for making our stay so great, we will definitely be returning, maybe with the grand kids too :)

My wife and I spent the August bank holiday at the Cimon. We arrived a little early and were met by the owner (Adam) who explained that our rooms were not quite ready. He showed us around, offered us the use of the pool and provided a map of the town with some helpful advice about the area. We decided to have a wander to the harbour which is about a 10 min walk.
When we got back we were shown to our room which was very clean and well laid out with nice big fluffy towels, tea and coffee, big TV, even a fridge!
Unpacked and down to the bar for a "magic" Guinness - you REALLY must try ones of these!
Breakfast was a triumph, fresh fruit, cereal, breads, yogurts followed by an excellent full english with fresh ingredients - great mushrooms!
The staff are all very cheerful and nothing is to much trouble.
If you want a stay in Torquay at a Hotel that takes service and quality very serioulsy - book here, you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: The larger rooms have bigger TV's and fridges if that is important to you. Smaller rooms are fantastic value considering the service and quality of the food at the Cimon

Just spent 4 nights at this lovely hotel. It was our first proper English holiday with the 2 children and our hosts were superb. I had been a bit nervous as our youngest was 9 months but they really couldn't do enough for us. There was a fridge in our room which was really handy plus we had access to a microwave to heat my little ones food. The playroom was a very welcome bonus. All in all I would definitely recommend!

Never been to Torquay before, but we picked this hotel on strength of positive reviews, so glad we did. Service and facilities were better than found in most larger hotels we had stayed in, also a lot cleaner and fresher too. The welcome tray was so well stocked we thought we were in a cafe. Room we had was good in size, clean, and bed comfy. On arrival was a minty choccy for each of us in room positioned on top of the towels on corner of bed - nice touch. Breakfast was excellent all round served by friendly staff and sometimes by the owner himself who is a walking tour guide for surrounding areas to visit, and how to get there. Adam the owner would spend breakfast times chatting to guests, all descending into friendly banter about the previous days visits around Torbay etc.
Location is fine for seafront, restaurant areas, and harbour, just a short walk gets you there.
Number 12 bus passes door to get you to Paignton and Brixham.
Car park has space for everyone when hotel is full. That's it really, no dislikes.
Will book Hotel Cimon when we visit Torquay again.

We stayed two nights with our boys aged 10 and 7. Had a family room which were two adjoining rooms with an on suite each. Very clean and spacious. Kettle in the room with tea coffee and hot choc which the boys enjoyed in the evening. We used the pool twice which was excellent. The hotel is of good quality ie decor, towels, v good breakfast with a selection fruit, cereals followed by an English breakfast or a selection of your choice. Hospitality was excellent with nothing being too much trouble. The only area that could be improved is the owners chess skills ;-)
