The hotel room was nice. Dinner buffet was great with many choice. This hotel is near to cotton castle (thermal pool terace) Unfortunately the pool is dirty at the wall of pool. It should be clean up regularly.

Room was nice and updated with a private balcony. Room was clean, bathroom was clean, no trace of previous guests. The pools were great with a variety of different temperature pools. Dinner buffet was excellent with plenty of choice, breakfast buffet was nothing special. The lobby is gorgeously decorated with plenty of seating for gatherings. If there is a con...

Visited Pammukale. Went to Cotton Castle(Thermal pool terrace) before arriving at the hotel. Booked a half board package inclusive room, breakfast and buffet dinner. Simple clean comfortable acceptable room for an overnight stay. Hotel is more ideal for 1 night stay. There's also thermal pool in the hotel. Buffet dinner consisted of mostly Turkish food and desserts. There's salad too....

This was a great hotel! I was tour-leading a group of 32 passengers on a trip through Western Turkey and we had the pleasure of spending a night at this hotel. Although the rooms and bathrooms were small, they were clean, well-appointed and comfortable. Reception and restaurant staff and the bellboys were welcoming, pleasant and efficient. Food was plentiful and...

This hotel flatters to deceive! The building as one approaches looks quite impressive and the lobby continues this impression. But, we soon realised, it is a case of outward style over substance. It is a large, sprawling complex - lots of passageways, corridors and steps. When we finally reached our room, we found that the bedroom furniture and fittings were...

I stayed here just one night. It's a nice looking place, and comfortable, but the furnishings are on the budget side -- tub, toilet, etc. Toilet didn't flush. The bathroom smelled of sewage, but that may be because of the sulfurous waters. The hot pool wasn't very hot. The breakfast and dinner buffets were just average. They offer free Wifi,...

Stayed for one night and had stayed here for one night in December 2014. It is probably not fair to judge on what were 'out of season' visits but we certainly have stayed at better hotels. The rooms and setting are fine for an overnight stay although the variety of food on offer was somewhat limited when based on other...

The room was decent and clean. The internet was so slow it barely enabled email (minus one star there). We did not use the spa, so cannot comment on that portion. The food was absolutely terrible buffet though -- easily the worst I have had in years. We arrived late, so ate at the restaurant. A huge mistake. Expensive for...

Echoing other reviewer this hotel is on the run-down side but is quite okay. Carpet needs repair but is intact, beds were comfortable, room is adequate size, bathroom was clean and functional. Food was very adequate but not as tasty as other places during our trip. Many tours use this hotel (as did ours). We used the hot pools one...
