This is a really nice location in itself - set back from the road in the middle of the vineyards. The breakfast is pretty good too. But it's about 30 mins walk from the centre of town. A previous reviewer has highlighted the Faulty Towers-esque service, particularly the friendly if ineffectual Osman. Rooms are clean but not spectacular. The tours the hotel offers are way over-priced; we recommend Tahir who is in the Lonely Planet instead.
