A great hotel. Clean & tidy and Roy & Marita are great hosts. I will be going back in June. Cant wait. I think I will make this hotel my yearly hang out. Look out for their deals as very worth it. I will be bringing some friends with me next time.

It didn't ruin our weekend away but just feel The Iona is a little tired
Could do with a spring clean
Lovely breakfast
Friendly welcome
Like other review could do with warming room up before arrival also

Arrived at Torquay and looked up hotels on internet. Quickly booked the Iona and arrived ten minutes later. Greeted by the owner and his lovely doggie. Helpful owner carried our cases for us to our room. Lovely well decorated, spacious room. Very clean, soft white towels and a beautiful bathroom. Given helpful directions to the seafront and town, as well as a recommendation for a good Indian restaurant. The lady owner was very helpful and attentive at breakfast, friendly, providing good service and a breakfast with good quality ingredients. The price was very reasonable for such good accommodation with ample parking. Thank you for an enjoyable stay. We will definitely come to stay again if we are back in the area.☺

We stayed for two nights over a rainy weekend but we had a relaxing and enjoyable time. We were met with a friendly welcome and the advice given about local restaurants and pubs was spot on. The room was very comfortable and finished to a high standard. Could do with warming the room up a bit before are arrival though. The bed was a little tired and creaked a lot. Overall we had a excellent stay and I would definitely recommend a stay here to anyone.

We stayed at the Iona while visiting relatives nearby for Christmas. The room with balcony was lovely - the bed comfortable - the breakfasts excellent - imagine it would be nice in summer. The owners were kind and attentive - loved the christmas decorations - our two small dogs were welcomed and not like some places merely tolerated.

We had a great 3 day break to chill out after Christmas. The room was excellent, the atmosphere warm and friendly and the breakfast fantastic. Perfect get away. The owners were on hand to help with places of interest to visit and recommendations for restaurants in the area.
