“Close to Gallipoli Peninsula”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2010

This was quite an ordinary hotel, but suited us for location. It really was out in the sticks and has not been maintained very well. It was ok for the one night we stayed there, as we wanted to have access to Gallipoli. Room was very basic. You can walk down to the beach (through the scrub) and see Gallipoli in the distance. The staff do not seem comfortable communicating with english speaking tourists.
I would stay elsewhere if there was a better option.

If you'd like to be treated like a dog by the hotel management, just don't hesitate and go there. Rude staff including the owner..

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2009

After having been told by a number of people that there was no-where to stay on the Gallipoli Peninsula we were extremely relieve to see the sign-posts for this hotel. We arrived at 6:30 at night and found the place almost empty - obviously end of season!! Still, there was a good buffet meal and the breakfast, though not impressive was more than adequate. - Turkish breakfast with a bit extra.
It must be really buzzy in the summer because it is vast - swimming pool, cafe, restaurant, camping ground and heaps of space. Staff were in abundance but I felt sorry for them as there seemed to be more staff than guests. Would recommend.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2007

We stayed just for 3 nights in September at about 300YTL (£140) for a double room HB. The hotel is on the West side of Gallipoli in an isolated spot. It is really well signposted from the main roads. It is very handy for looking at the battlefields - the NZ embassy in Turkey uses it for putting up their guests for the ANZAC services - and you can get to Troy.

The site itself is half caravan site/half hotel and has a swimming pool and nice beach area. Our room had been renovated recently and was great but some bits of the hotel seemed a little run down particularly the outside paving.

The food was buffet style and generally had good Turkish salads and desserts but somewhat disappointing main courses. The breakfast was reasonable. It had decent bar areas.

Since we were out so much we didn’t get much of a sense of the atmosphere of the place. The guests seem to be mainly Turkish tourists and people from Eastern Europe.

  • Liked — Nice beach
  • Disliked — Looked a little run down
