It was of course too cold to even think about getting in but it's not quite the same sitting around an empty hole ..... More

The hotel rooms are great and cleaned daily - family rooms have 2 bedrooms and 2 fridges that are restocked daily with juices, beers , nuts etc. The restaurant has themed nights so don't... More

My wife and I stayed here one night and did not have reservations before arriving which seemed to annoy the front desk staff. They were also confused that we were only staying one night and we were not made to feel very welcome. No one helped us with our luggage from our car as it was raining and we got... More

This was our first trip to Turkey and this hotel had been chosen by a family friend as we were on a group trip. This hotel was a fair drive from the airport (45 mins) and the ride was a little unnerving with the coach driver demonstrating his multi-tasking prowess by taking several phone calls with one hand whilst driving...
