Me and my boyfriend went there last February for one full week in half pension.
The hotel is a bit far away from Kütahya : it has it good and bad points. The good one is that you are lost in nature with nothing to do than relax, have a walk and enjoy the nature. The bad one is you always have to be organized if you want to go out of the hotel, checking the time table for buses etc... Anyway, our trip was not in a visits purpose but just to relax. This was so the perfect location.
The hotel itself is pretty big and well made : rooms are in another building as the meal and breakfast rooms, as the wellness center. Everything is linked together so no need to go out even if some fresh air is pretty good to breeze.
About the meals :
Breakfast and diner were organized as open buffet which was pretty convenient. Breakfast was really fresh and - lucky I am - they were having "real" bread (I am French). In addition you were having different kinds of jams, vegetables, juices etc...
The dinner was pretty good with two kinds of soups, different entries and dishes. The only disappointing thing was that after a week it was kind of same dish all the time. Also I do not eat lamb and just a few dishes were made of beef or we did not know what it was.
They are big with a real king size bed. You have the TV with only Turkish channels but it was not a problem : we are in Turkey, in a place where foreigners are not coming so often so I was not expecting something else. Anyway, it is still a good training to learn Turkish. Our view from the room was really nice with mountains and trees all with snow.
The bathroom was amazing : a real hot tub/jacuzzi for two persons with a tiny place to put some glasses. We brought some wine and it was just awesome. Also it is really easy to make foam and bubbles with a bit of soap or shampoo. You also have place to tidy all your things near the sink.
The swimming pool was a bit col for me, but maybe it was because of the atmosphere : they could put more light to make it more warm. The hammam is really quiet and you have a tiny hot pool in the middle and a jacuzzi in one of the corner. You have also a sauna we did not try because of the lack of time : I fall ill after two days and was having difficulties to walk.
Anyway, the room was nice and I did not felt bored in it.
All in all, we definitely would recommend this hotel to everyone. Even, we are planning to go back there next winter.
