“excellent hotel, wonderful staff, great new 'pink fountain' restaurant area”
Reviewed August 2, 2010

We had a room with a view which although was not a big room it was very clean and had a lovely view of the bay. Our friends had a family room which was quite roomy and very clean but could have done with redecorating as did most of the corridors upstairs and in particular in need of a new stair carpet. The new renovations/decoration and refurbs are excellent and I understand that the rest of the hotel is to be updated soon We look forward to seeing the finished rooms as we will definately be back. .

We loved the Cocktails and had a lovely time trying most of them.
The Management and all of their staff are quite the best we have encountered anywhere, exceptionally friendly and nothing too much trouble. The food was good and very good value for money. Our waiter, Bart, was very efficient and very friendly and made our stay even more enjoyable.

the entertainment was good and if you wanted a seat in the evening then you had to be quite early as it is very popular.

The only disappointment was that I did not get a ride in the Bently.

Thank you ever so much for your kind remarks. I agree and have instigated a new program of redecoration in the corridors starting in the very near future when we are not so busy with private guests.
Oh yes, you are so right ! Our cocktails in the Pink Fountain are developing quite a reputation in and around Torbay. Hurricane is my favourite.
We are so happy and proud to have such a great team of people working for us. We get such fantastic compliments made about them all the time.

Large attractive hotel, just 5 minutes walk from the prom. Airy room, but lacked air con. Spotless throughout. Bedding & towels whiter than white. Exceptional food with a good menu content. Evening entertainment very good, except for the Bingo. Staff from top Management to 'waiting on' were so helpful and very pleasant. Will certainly visit again.

The Hotel has an excellent location and has easy access inside, (lift).
The bedroom although spacious was shabby decor wise but very clean, and very good room service.
The bar and entertainment area including the dining room were very comfortable with plenty of room to relax , dance, etc.
The evening entertainment was enjoyable inc The Bingo all of which ended at a reasonable time.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and were a big bonus towards making the holiday a success.
We would return to this hotel again.

What can I say?
This is the real thing!
When you arrive, you will see this BIG PINK HOTEL and the first thing you feel is; THIS IS THE PLACE!
When you meet Peter, the manager, you understand why this is the place to stay!

We've recently spent 3 nights in this hotel & it was a lovely break. It's just over the road from the beach & within walking distance to the Marina & town although the litle road train stops opposite & for £3 return you can take a ride instead.The rooms were cosy - not as spacious as the big hotel chains but comfortable & as you'd expect from a seaside hotel. The indoor pool was brilliant, open from 7.30am until 7pm and never crowded when we went for our morning swim before breakfast. We also used the outdoor pool at the Inglewood Hotel which was just a short walk up the road although that one was only open from 10am until 4pm, again never crowded. The breakfast was fine I thought, not self service - everything is served to the table. There is entertainment every night with Happy Hour in the bar from 8 - 9pm which is very popular.

Thank you for a very fair review. We are enjoying some very kind comments recently, due in part to the extensive changes to our exterior and refurbished lounge. I would like to thank all our guests for their patience whilst these alterations took place and also for some of the confusion concerning cream teas. The advertising of which was published sooner than expected and we were caught off guard.
We are now looking forward to the Opening of the Pink Fountain Restaurant. Thank you Margaret for your review and we look forward to your return visit very soon!

Just come back from a week away at the kistor hotel and had a very plesant experience. Hotel was perfectly situated with just a short walk to the sea front, and across the road from the golf, tennis and bowls. There was entertainment every night and it was generally very good. music from the entertainment could not be heard from rooms which provided a very quiet nights sleep. There is a very large bar which enabled us to find a seat every night. Great idea to be able to use the facilities of both the kistor and Inglewood hotels. The food service was incredibly fast and the food itself was excellent. Great facilities, including, jacuzzi, sauna, swimming pool, and pool table. The rooms were very clean and the hotel was very cozy. The friendly, sociable staff made our holiday a great success. highly recommended. will definitely return.
