A new hotel on an old island, Ascot has much going for it. It's a short walk from the ferry terminal, and you can hire a horse and cart just outside. Our room was on the top floor with good views in three directions. Being new, it has all the facilities you would expect from a good 4-star western hotel.
Breakfast was served with a certain Turkish Zen that set the scene for the day. The staff were fantastic and welcoming, and happy to provide maps and information about the island and its attractions.
Buyukada does not move at a frantic pace – and that's its charm. My only wish is that I was there closer to the main season when it was warmer outside. Maybe next time.
