“Beach and Pool”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Stayed here one night between Kusadasi and Istanbul. About five other tourist buses had the same idea. The room overlooked the pool...and some party was going on next door that involved loud drumming. There was time for a massage--a lovely couple provide the services--and after feeling the mattress, a massage seemed like a really good idea.... The buffet was geared to large numbers in a tour --though I'm not sure who eats stone cold fries at breakfast time.

Okay for one night. Glad it wasn't longer.

Stayed here one night after a trip to Gallipoli. It was reasonably clean and quiet (our room overlooked the pool area) but it was very basic. No hair shampoo, only a dispenser of soap in the shower and beside the hand basin. Althought it is on the beachfront, the beach shoreline was covered in seaweed and did not look inviting. Reasonable buffet dinner and breakfast but if you are looking for a culinary treat this isn't the hotel. The real downside is that it is 15 minutes out of the city centre and therefore if you want to look at the local shops or restaurants it's a bus ride or a 40 lira taxi trip, one way.

Our second of three scheduled hotels for this trip.
Just a one night stayover as a break stop for the trip.
From the outside and first impressions at reception as you enter the hotel it seems a fantastic hotel.
After a quick shower and brush up to get ready for dinner you see that the main function of this hotel somewhat starts to falter as our room was a tad on the tired side. The beds for a start could do with the mattress replacing.
However, after a decent buffy stle meal and retiring to bed, we were confronted by a horrendous noise coming from somewhere.
Hoping that it would shortly stop we settled down for the night, half an hour later with no let up, I complained to reception who duly sent their maintainence man to investigate.
Having managed to dull the sound I managed to drop off.
I was awoken by the sound at 2:30am, and asked my wife how long it had been going, to which she replied YOU dropped off to sleep very quickly and it wasn't long after that the noise returned.
Upon complaining to the night receptionist about it's return I was told it was a water pump making the noise and that he cold turn it off but that would mean no one would have water in the morning. I guessed that would make me very popular in the morning, so had to put up with a sleepless night.
To make matters worse we had a small amount of water dripping through the bathroom ceiling into the washbasin next morning.

Room Tip: Luck of the draw as some in our party said they had a fab room and could not fault the place. We h...

This huge, clean, attractive hotel with everything you could want is situated on the beach, one with real sand. Staff are lovely. Rooms are spacious. The buffet is has better quality food than many other large hotels. Wifi is strong. Hotel is in a quiet area. Only downside is you have to drive or taxi if you want to leave the hotel. It's 15 minutes out of Canakkale.

The most amazing sunset I had seen at the beach of this hotel - Iris Hotel just crossing the channel. You can choose between a big swimming pool or a clean sea water just in the hotel.
Comfortable room, tasteful buffet, amazing garden with flowers and lots of fruits as well.

We were given the rooms facing the farm. The rooster kept us awake from 5am. I would suggest that you request for a room away from the farm if you are not a early riser. The hotel is located a stone throw from the beach, we loved the sea breeze when taking buffet breakfast at the hotel.

This is just a basic hotel. We only stayed one night on our way to Izmir. The bed was comfortable, but the chipped furniture needs to be thrown out and replaced with brand new. The food at the buffet was good.
I don't think it should be rated as a 4* hotel, more like a 3*
