“Very friendly and welcoming”
Reviewed 4 April 2012

We've been coming to Hotel Iona from the south of France for years as a group and have always been delighted with the happy family atmosphere there. The hotel has a quiet residential atmosphere, while being very near the downtown area. The rooms are clean and very comfortable and the proprietors are very open and helpful. There is ample parking. I would recommend Hotel Iona to anyone coming to Torquay.

Have stayed here at Roy and Marita's hotel several times now since 2006, four I think, and have recommended this establishment to our friends and family. The rooms are as spotless as ever and tastfully decorated and well appointed. We are always met with a warm smile and made to feel as part of the family, although we do not have to do the dishes!

Breakfast is always exceptional but the best part would be Roy's evening meal. Over the years he has got better and better with his cuisine, his Chicken Marengo is exceptional and great value, try it. We plan to return in the summer and would highly recommend this quiet Hotel for any couple wanting a relaxing home from home break. Chip is as friendly and bonkers as ever.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the ballcony, it is huge

Stayed at the Hotel Iona for one night this November. As soon as we arrived we were warmly welcomed at reception, our room was immaculate. Big comfy double bed, really nice balcony and great shower and bathroom. Hotel was clean, fresh and very comfortable. The staff so helpful and gave us loads of info on things to check out locally. We walked to torquay centre which isn't far at all about 15 mins away, ate out at Tiger Bills which was delicious and great value. Popped into a local pub nearby and won £40 on the quiz which was also a great bonus! Breakfast at Iona was yummy, loads of hot fresh food, fresh orange and coffee all served in the light and comfy dining room... Will definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family and will be using it again if we travel to torquay again in the future... Keep up the good work, hope to see you all again soon : )

My partner and I stayed at this hotel for a long weekend in October. We enjoyed our stay very much. The breakfast was fabulous and the evening meal was delicious, great value for money. Roy and Marita were wonderful hosts and made us feel very welcome and at home. I had read about Chip the dog in previous reviews but did not meet him during my stay.
We were in a double room, which was very clean and tidy. Very spacious which I liked.

The hotel was close enough to the shops and beach front, both within walking distance. The hotel is situated in a nice quiet area but the night life is also close by.

Room Tip: Room 3: Huge double room with a nice big bath, Lovely!
