Stayed at the Kistor last month on a Torquay Travel coach holiday.Was pleased to be allocated a double room as being single I get used to tiny poky 'cupboards', also had double seaview. Although the carpet was extremely threadbare and one chair was fit for the tip I had everything I needed to keep me happy in the room. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept in and the bathroom was clean and fresh other than a bath that needs replacing. There were a couple of problems which were sorted as soon as they could. My radiator was on with no controls for me to turn off so I had a couple of hot nights until a mechanic turned it off with pliers. There was also a problem with a boiler a couple of days in, which meant several of us had only cold water for 24 hours but that also was addressed successfully.
The staff were excellent so friendly and helpful, couldn't do enough for us. Food was good and so plentiful that I had to cut down what I ate to be able to move comfortably!
My biggest negative is that I had chosen this hotel as it advertised a heated indoor swimming pool but I was gutted to discover that it was closed so my new costume did not get an outing.
On a minor point the free wifi was very limited so you had to be almost on top of the box to use it and I had to keep moving away from my group in the entertainments area to the bar if I wanted to use it.
On the subject of entertainment it was brilliant and I enjoyed each of the ones I saw.
