“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 28 May 2012 via mobile

We were in Torquay visiting our daughter. Stayed three nights for the price of two. Our room was described as a small double, but was in fact plenty large enough for two people for the three nights. The bathroom was certainly larger than many we have had lately. Very clean, nicely furnished without the over the top decorations so often found in other B & Bs. Friendly owners and staff, excellent breakfast, and off road parking. Quiet location yet within walking distance of the town and sea front. Highly recommended by both of us. I hope we can get in next time we visit Torquay. John & Christine Melsher

We spent almost one month in this unique hotel and we were more than delighted with everything.
A very cosy, intimate hotel decorated with a great taste. The family was there with a smile beating the sun to satisfy all our requests, they could not have been better or nicer to us.

The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was lovely and there was so much to choose from. Excellent value for money. The hotel dog Chip was by far the best part of our stay, he was adorable!

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
