About Us

The Cimon is set in a delightful 1860’s detached Victorian villa retaining many original period features. Indoors the guests can enjoy use of the upstairs seating area and ground floor lounge including residents bar with games and free pool table. The conservatory looks out over the large patio garden with 30ft heated swimming pool. The Cimon benefits from plenty of onsite parking at the rear which is free. Guests also have free access to the fibre optic wifi throughout.

A range of elegant en-suite rooms to suit families, couples and singles all with flat-screen TV and complimentary refreshment tray. Superior rooms equipped with a DVD player and a small fridge. Sea view and family rooms have panoramic south-facing vistas across Torbay to Paignton and Brixham .

The Cimon is well located being just a 5 minute walk from Torquay’s sandy beach, Torre Abbey, the Riviera International Conference centre, the bustling promenade with Princess Theatre, the shops and of course the Marina with its wide choice of bars and restaurants. It is also a short distance from Torquay Rail Station and the Agatha Christie Mile, the location for a tour of her life and work.

Whilst located in the popular heart of Torquay, the Cimon is set back from the road offering a quiet, relaxing atmosphere. At one time it was a Nunnery! You can enjoy a warm welcome and comfortable stay at this family run establishment.
