What a wonderful hotel. There was a mix up with our booking (no fault of the hotel) and they couldn't have been anymore helpful and accommodating to resolve the situation. The room was beautiful and spacious. Breakfast was delicious. We had the full English and there was a lovely buffet selection of cereals, fresh fruit, Yoghurts and more. Breakfast was...

Booked a one nights stay using a Groupon deal, from the outside it didn't look too great. When we were inside, we were greeted very well. Then the room looked fab and like it was recently re decorated. Very clean and with a nice Ocean View. Would definitely recommend 😊

Thank you for your feedback. We're glad you liked the room and enjoyed your stay. We're just in the midst of controlling the post winter shrubbery so hopefully it will look a bit tidier when you get the chance to return.

This place is amazing. What a lovely family that run it. It's newly decorated and really tasteful. Free pool table in the bar nearly meant we missed our meal out as we were just having such a lovely time. Can't comment on the breakfast as unfortunately we were too hungover to make it, but being offered tea and orange juice...

Thank you for your lovely feedback. It's great that you and your friends found The Cimon a good place to stay for your Torquay break. Everyone needs a bit of re-hydrating after a night out - we vaguely remember ourselves :) Hope to see you again soon.

Stayed here for one night with my mum. Had a really nice new fresh room. It was very clean and comfortable with an en suite and kettle, tea etc. Staff were friendly and breakfast was great. Although the rooms are new, the rest of the hotel seems a little old and dated. Also the front facing bedrooms unfortunately are subject...

Thank you for your comments. We're glad you enjoyed your overnight stay and found the rooms fresh, clean and comfortable. While we still have more to do, we are trying to keep the 1860's Victorian ambience in the central areas. Most guests comment on the quietness of their stay - 3ft thick Victorian walls help :) - but the front...

Beautiful breakfast beautiful room. Girl with dark hair who was working when we arrived was very friendly and couldnt do enough for us. Rooms were a bit confusing as ours had no number on the door. Room 15 is fab. Would have liked a choice of coffees. I.e cappuccino latte etc. (Im a coffee snob).

My boyfriend and I stayed in a compact double room. The room seemed newly refurbished and decorated so was very clean and pristine! The shower was very good and the room had a hairdryer in it. We were given towels, complimentary tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits. However, there was no soap in the bathroom to wash your hands with....

This guest house has a very central location, and good views down to the bay. The team were very helpful, giving recommendations for dining; and serving breakfast early in the morning for me. I didn't use the pool or the terrace, and was only there in the hours of darkness on this trip, but could just about see the sea...
