Reviewed 23 March 2012

I have been staying at the Kistor Hotel for many years and have visited at various times of the year including Christmas. I am writing now as I have just read the review which more or less advised vegetarians not too visit as the Hotel did not cater for vegetarians. I could not really believe the review as there is always a vegetarian choice on the evening menu along with a salad. I personally am not vegetarian but have visited with various relatives in the past and one of them is. She always found something that she was able to eat on the menu. Last summer we had five children from 5 to 12 with us. The staff made us very welcome and were very patient and helpful with them at meal times. As children do they all had food they did and did not like but this was never a problem. Theo who drew the short straw and was our waiter for the week could not have been more patient and helpful. He was their hero!

Peter and Eileen and the rest of the staff never let us down.

We stayed at the hotel from March 12th to March 16th.
The hotel was very clean and the staff polite. The waitor was very efficient and provided a good service too. (The beds were a little hard but that may justt be me being picky!)
The shower is a little too close to the wall and i flooded the bathroom once but that is my only fault! Good entertainment especially bingo done in peters fashion 'ish' and fantastic food Plenty of it too!!
My grandfather is a wheel chair user and peter made sure everything was alright for him.
Highly recommended hotel only a stone throw from the beach and around 10 minutes walk from the town, A good hotel good staff brilliant value for money
Many Many thanks to all of the staff who did everything to make it a pleasurable stay at the kistor! (we stayed in room 43)

Room Tip: if you want a seaview ask for rooms looking toward the north (pleasant views)

Thank you very much for taking the time to post this review. I am pleased that you highlighted our four key attractions for the Kistor!
S.E.L.F. we aim to provide service that is fast but at the same time easy going and helpful. we have entertainment every night, provided by top local artistes. Our location is one of the best in the bay. On the level and close to great amenities but far enough away from the noise of a busy town. Yes, our food is good and plentiful. I eat here most nights and i confess to being fussy, I think it's great too. This is not a plug but a true depiction of our great hotel.
See you again soon..

comfortable hotel, good entertainment but if you are a vegetarian forget it as they simply
dont't cater for them. I had just a mushroom omlette and nothing else for the main meal.

I am so annoyed with this review, as it is just not true. There is a vegetarian option every night on the menu and as you pointed there is the option of omelettes and salads too.
The vegetarian options are as follows Monday to Thursday... Leak & Potato Bake with Stilton Cheese, Mushroom Provencale, Spinach & Pasta Bake & Stuffed Peppers.we try very hard to accommodate our guests with all dietary requests including Gluten Free, diabetics and vegetarians. The vegetarian option is clearly printed on each day's menu. This type of review is unhelpful and untrue.

Just returned from a lovely weekend in Torquay staying at the Kistor. Peter was an excellent host; really entertaining and extremely funny!
Lovely room; warm throughout the hotel and plenty of hot water.
The staff were obliging and friendly.
The meals were excellent with plenty of choice and variety.
The entertainment was great and Bingo was fun.
Wi-fi access too; what a bonus!
Many thanks!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a sea view!

I spent 4 days at the Kistor (coach trip) to celebrate my 68th birthday 10th Feb
my friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay, entertainment was brill, (I even got to do some line dancing that I havn't done for 11yrs but am looking to restart classes) food, staff, management, fellow travellers all great, admit hotel could do with a makeover, but at the end of the day it was clean, the only problem we had was with the shower, I twice flooded the floor as the shower head had 2 lge pinholes in the top so the water sprayed out of them also it was too close to the wall, the water bounced off the tap connection, once the heating and hot water went off due to boiler problems I believe, but Peter put on a sherry reception though I didn't attend, overall we had a fantastic w/end and would go there again, hopefully next time we may get a room with a sea view!!
