“Should have kept going”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

We had driven past this hotel 3 times before and should have made it 4. As soon as you enter the car park the warning bells start. Very run down with weeds overtaking the driveways and paths. The out side of the building is in urgent need of decorating with flaking paint everywhere. Our room was quite basic and far from 3 star. The restaurant is at best poor. No menu just 'do you want chicken, meat or fish?' We were told that they were not very busy that night which is another of saying we were the only customers. Keeping this in mind they had no starters, or desserts and wine was none existent. When we arrived for dinner a plate of salad and a plate of cold chips awaited us on our table. We asked them to try again and serve hot chips with hot chicken. Mistake! they just put them back in the deep fat fryer with the obvious result. If we had any doubts left about the quality of this hotel then this was confirmed. The following morning we skipped breakfast and left. The view may be 3 star but the hotel certainly isn't.

My wife and I, seasoned independent travellers in our 60s, made a 3-1/2 week tour of western Turkey. My wife is British (and also a World War I buff) and a tour of the Gallipol peninsula was a highlight of the trip for her. We planned 1-1/2 days of touring, staying two nights. We didn't want to stay in Canakkale, where the four and five star hotels are, because we didn't know how easy it would be to take the car back and forth on the ferry, as well as not wanting to incur the added cost -- this turned out to be a wise as, while the ferry wouldn't have been a problem, Canakkale turned out to not be a very inviting place (we passed through it the next day on our way to Pergamon). The hotels in Eceabat, which is well located for touring the battlefields, looked only so-so on the web, and since web photos are usually nicer than the places themselves, we opted for the Gallipoli Hotel, which is 25 minutes up the road from Eceabat (so not really the best of locations).

The Gallipoli Hotel is a family run establishment, but not a boutique-type hotel, more like an 60 room slightly upscale U.S. roadside hotel like a Holiday Inn Express or Travelodge. But they seem to have run out of money while building it: although the hotel is on the Dardanelles and advertises a beach, there is no beach or even landscaping; the pool wasn't functioning (it was too chilly to swim anyway, but there also weren't any signs that the pool was being made ready); a lot of the fitments weren't installed professionally. Still, the lobby was bright; the room was clean, large and airconditioned, and the bed was comfortable. The first night we were there there was also a late-arriving tour of Turkish schoolchildren learning about their history -- we enjoyed trying to talk with their teachers at breakfast, though they had limited English. The second night we were the only guests. Still, they made us a lovely dinner of fresh, grilled fish, so we really had nothing to complain about, though it all felt a little sad. Price-wise, this was the best deal we had in Turkey. We hope they make it, but we have our doubts.

If I had to do it all over again, I would probably stay at the Grand Eceabat Hotel in Eceabat, which actually looked better (on the outside, didn't go inside to check out a room) than its photos.
