My wife and I have just had a Xmas break on a coach holiday at the Kistor, these are obviously at budget style hotels. The Kistor we found was one of the better ones. The staff were polite and helpful. The food was good and plentiful. Our room though smaller than what we are used to at home was ample, clean with ample storage for the short break. Towels were changed on request (in the bath) and there was plenty of hot water and a reasonable shower pressure. We also enjoyed a swim in the indoor pool which was kept a nice comfortable temperature, and extra towels were provided for this, and left in a basket in the changing area which was emptied promptly. An added bonus was the hotel manager, who I suspect is probably some sort of relative to Jethro the comedian, as his appearance was always entertaining. It was a pleasant and enjoyable break.
Although it was not of importance at this time of the year to us, the hotel occupies a good position and is convenient for the beach and town. I would have no fear of returning at any time of the year.
