Trying to work out whether the booking was taken fraudulently or whether the hotel closed after they sent me an email confirming booking in which case I think they could have at least extended the courtesy of notifying me so I did not have a 4 hour drive home at midnight after a long day's work.

The best thing about this holiday is that a group can really come together in adversity, and the group I was with certainly did that. Whilst the rest of the world has 'no meat Monday', the Kistor apparently has 'no veg Monday.' Quite distressing when the only option for dinner is fish and chips and you are a vegetarian. The...

Very polite and competent. And hard working. Roof being repaired as it was leaking. Had to move to different dining room as water coming through roof. All should... More

Our stay didn't go to plan as my husband was hospitalised on our first night and although this wasn't what we had hoped for, the staff couldn't have been more helpful in every aspect. I was between the hospital during the day and the hotel at night. The food at the hotel was excellent. Well cooked, well presented and at... More
