We have just returned from our first stay at the hotel and it was brilliant. The hotel and rooms are spotless and the staff efficient and friendly. We were upgraded at no cost to a room on the top floor with fabulous views (thanks Penny). This is a small hotel which is perfectly placed in Side for getting about or just hopping across the road to the beach. If you like big soulless hotels with all inclusive, don't book here but if small and friendly is your thing then you can't go wrong. The garden at the back is a bonus, as is the roof terrace, which provides some welcome shade and chilling space. Ali & Penny are hands on and always around the place but not in your face. We met several people who have stayed numerous times and we can see why. A vast library of books is available to borrow and the free wifi was a must for us. Looking forward to booking for next year.

Room Tip: Sea views are worth paying a little extra for and the higher up the better the view.

Have just returned from this hotel after a wonderful stay. The hotel is comfortable, clean and welcoming. The staff offer a five star service with a smile. If you are looking for a modern, characterless, sterile hotel this is not for you but if you want a warm welcome and to interact with the management, staff and other guests then you cannot do better.

Facing a small sandy bay, There are some free sunbeds on the beach but guests have to pay a small charge(£4.00 a day for two beds, matresses and umbrella) to rent those nearer the water, acceptable as the hotel has a contract with the local council to put beds on the beach which they have to pay for.

A healthy Turkish breakfast is included. This consists of feta cheese, cucumber, olives, tomato, boiled egg, fruit. Cereal is also available along with as much delicious soft Turkish bread, jam, honey and Turkish tea or coffee as you can manage, For £5.00 you can order a full English breakfast with imported UK bacon and sausages as these are not available in Turkey. Half board is available for evening meals at £10.00 per night which includes a plate of delicious mixed Mezze, a choice of three main courses and any desert from the main menu. This hotel features in the Thompson small and friendly brochure but it is cheaper to book directly with the hotel who will arrange taxi transfers. We flew easyjet from Gatwick with speedy boarding and extra leg room and paid a total of about £1100 for both of us for seventeen nights in a family sized room a double and single bed, with en suite shower room and lots of wardrobe space.

While we were there my husband developed a chest infection and Penny offered to take him to the doctor in the local hospital. She drove him there, helped with the translation, saw him settled in a bed and then returned to pick him up when he was discharged. Our insurer wanted a letter from the hospital so the following day she drove back, organised this and brought it to us. All this was done with no complaint and with no charge. How many hoteliers offer this sort of service.

Please on reading some of the critical reviews remember, this is a family run Turkish hotel in a historic building with lots of Turkish Quirkiness and lots of Turkish friendliness.

Room Tip: Please ask for a front room on the second or third floor. but beware there is no lift.

A mediocre place at best, more like a backpackers hostel. Ignore the hype, located a few minutes from Side centre or would be if you wer'nt stopped every other step with ' buy/eat/drink here'.
After a very early morning arrival, opening the curtain and seeing a couple of 'pirate ships' in the bay, kind of starts to flash warnings. Penny was remanisant of a 'Blackpool Landlady' in the '50's.(you couldn't make it up!) Everything was an extra, from the orange juice at breakfast and PG tips tea, to a room with a sea view. Thomson's 'Small & Frendly' more like 'dank and miserable'.

Just got back from Greece, needed it to compesate for our first and only time in Turkey, it was fabulous and there was a fridge in the room,

Room Tip: Don't go!

Visited Beach House Hotel early September. Stayed in Room 401 on the top floor. Large balcony, new bathroom, decent beds, but no wardrobe only open shelving, step down into the room, step up into the bathroom, and step to nowhere in front of the shelving (watch your toes). Room 401 is on the side, it has a view to the sea and the promenade but is also in direct line with the mosque, where the imam wakes you at 5.30 each morning with the call to prayers. The maid kept the room very clean but to be honest the place needs a bit of updating. Found Penny the owner to be friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the area, she told us of a few places to go when we hired a car that we wouldn't have found ourselves. However, on our last day, Penny put up the prices of the sunbeds on the beach (found this incredible as it was only a few weeks to the end of the season). The free sunbeds are only ones at the back of the beach. Breakfast gets very monotonous, shame that it isn't done as a buffet so that you could choose which bits you want.
Transfer with Thomson appalling - took over two hours and we had to walk the last half mile as the driver couldn't get his bus into the old town.

Room Tip: Hope you get the top floor with the newer bathrooms.
