“Excellent place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2013

Adam and his wife greeted us warmly and we had a great time staying at the Cimon, the rooms are lovely fresh and clean, they also do an amazing breakfast all freshly cooked. It's in a brilliant position in Torquay for walking into town so you do not need to worry about parking. I can honestly say you will have a great stay at the Cimon.

We spend two nights at the Cimon with a group of friends and the hospitality was second to none. Great facilities, perfect location for access to Torquay and the surrounding areas - superb breakfast - highly recommended.

We needed to find a hotel well positioned in Torquay for a weekend break which would accommodate us and our 3 young children altogether. The Cimon fitted the bill perfectly with their large family room. We had a double room with sitting room and sofa bed and adjoining bunk bedded room for our youngest children plus 2 ensuites, and a sea view! We had a warm welcome from Adam who was very helpful, with nothing too much trouble. All in all the hotel met all our needs, with carparking and a sun terrace and heated outdoor pool. Also a cosy bar with games for the children. The breakfasts were especially memorable, catering for all needs and tastes with a wide ranging buffet plus full English.

Room Tip: Telephone enquiries welcomed, proprietor very helpful if advice needed.

Booked last minute and was not disappointed. Great hosts, friendly with lots of local knowledge and advice. As I am 38 weeks pregnant, Lovely to be upgraded to a superior room on the ground floor which gave lots if space and no stairs to deal with.
Hotel is in a great location, in walking distance to beach, harbour, shops and restaurants. Exactly what we were looking for and wouldn't hesitate to stay again!

We stayed for a week using Torquay as a base. The Cimon has a car park which was a plus point as often parking in seaside resorts can be difficult. Adam the proprietor was helpful and knowledgeable. The bed was very comfortable and the breakfasts were some of the best we have ever had. The cooked breakfast was always cooked fresh to order, unlike a lot of hotels that cook it and keep it warm. The bar meals were good value and all the staff friendly. Excellent value and we would thoroughly recommend The Cimon.

We made a last minute decision to head to Torquay for a weekend break. We called the hotel directly and they were very helpful. The hotel is located 15 minutes walk from the Torquay train station, up a hill and there are pretty views of the coastline. There is also ample parking for those who arrive by car. When we arrived, Adam the owner was very welcoming and gave us a tour of the hotel and provided maps and information about local attractions. We stayed in a family room (room 4), which has a queen bed, bunk beds, two washrooms and sea and pool views. The hotel has a heated outdoor pool ( open May to Sept I believe), a bar area with tv games and a pool table, restaurant area and a childrens playroom - which was a very bit hit with our boys! Breakfast was served between 8:30 and 10 and was absolutely fabulous! There was a large selection of cereals, yogurt, fruit and juice as well as a choice of hot options ( full traditional, vegetarian, omelette etc). The hotel is in a great location close to everything we wanted to see and do ( 10 mins walk to the beach, shops, the wheel, and park). We had a fantastic weekend at the Hotel Cimon and would highly recommend it to others!
