We have just spent a week with Susan & Chris and had the most relaxing holiday in a long time. The Escape is in an idyllic location in the hills above Gocek. Chris prides himself in looking after the pool which has a sun terrace that overlooks the local countryside.
The quality of Susan's cooking can only be described as outstanding and the eggs for breakfast are cooked perfectly.
Both Susan & Chris are dedicated to ensuring you a stress free and relaxed visit to their little part of Turkey.
You lie by the pool and dream................!
We have just returned from our first ever visit to Turkey.
The Escape is situated a short drive from Gocek and Dalaman Airport. Our transfer was arranged by Susan, we were collected from the airport and arrived to a very warm welcome and lovely meal. The fish was fantastic!
Our room was spacious and very comfortable over looking the beautiful infinity pool.
We had a good nights sleep and awoke to a glorious stunning view over the pool.
Breakfast was lovely, gorgeous fruits, yogurt, honey and jams, cheeses, hams, bread and eggs cooked to perfection!
Sadly we had only booked for one night as we were travelling onto Kas, we really wished we booked a night at the end of our cruise from Kas.
Susan and Chris's hospitality and service was second to none.
You really can't fault anything.
We look forward to returning to The Escape and we loved Turkey. What a beautiful country!
My wife and I have Just returned from a fabulous week at the Escape. Prior to booking I had read the reviews and have to confess to an element of cynicism with all submitters rating the Escape as excellent. I am delighted to say that from our experience all the comments are fully justified and accurately reflect the unique experience of staying with Chris and Susan.
Susan and Chris Salmon have created a little gem of a hotel. It is very secluded, tucked away up a hill about 10 minutes from Gocek and 30 minutes or so from Dalaman Airport.
It is a British family hotel transported to Turkey. What you get is a caring, very high quality hotel run to UK standards in a Mediterranean hillside setting.
I had arranged for a party of 6 to stay at the Escape, in two superior rooms and one standard. We only stayed one night before flying out from Dalaman airport at the end of our holiday.
The overall experience is just wonderful. The terrace, with its swimming pool overlooking the wooded hillside is bliss, extraordinarily peaceful. Chris and Susan Salmon’s hospitality is outstanding – they are the owners, they created the Escape and they want all their guests to enjoy it as much as they do.
The rooms are spacious, well equipped and very comfortable. The beds are luxurious, the Wi-Fi works all over the hotel, the hot or cold air conditioning system is remarkably quiet and efficient. Our shower was modern and efficient.
We were the first guests of the season (in mid March) there had been bad weather a couple of nights before and some details weren't totally right. They strive for perfection and very nearly get it.
We had dinner at the Escape and were carefully consulted on the menu before we arrived by Susan and later by Chris on the (inexpensive) organic wines. The food was delicious. Choice of starters, I had warm goats cheese salad, choice of fish or meat main course – I had the lamb shank and my wife had the quite delicious sea bream, we all went for the signature St. Clements pudding. Excellent.
Breakfast was good too. Perfectly poached eggs, delicious local bread, nice range of cereals, beautifully prepared fresh fruit, local cheeses, ham, olives for a touch of a Mediterranean breakfast. All very enjoyable.
Next time we would use the Escape as a base, stay a bit longer, and do trips along the Lycian Way. Yes we are already talking about next time.
Susan and Chris have created a treasure, a very special place to holiday in Turkey with the very highest standards through out. We enjoyed two stays at the beginning and end of our trip to Turkey and Greece. Susan also arranged our car and it was great to be able to contact her when there were small issue's with the car hire company. The Escape is a purpose built small hotel with extremely comfortable rooms and every facility you might need. Susan's food is delicious and Chris's attention and hospitality takes service to a new level. We loved the location outside the town and we also loved the pool and the pool area. We hope to go back as many other of their clients do.
Seven of us stayed for two nights at the end of a sailing holiday. We all agreed that The Escape is a great find. It is exactly as the name suggests, away from all the hurly-burly of a tourist resort. None of the previous reviews do justice to the standards and the enjoyment of a stay at The Escape. Chris and Susan, our host and hostess, made us feel welcome and at home from the moment we arrived. Nothing was too much trouble, all the meals were delicious and the bill as we sadly departed was more than reasonable.
All or some of us will be back for more as soon as an opportunity arises.
A charming small hotel of 9 bedrooms in the hills down a real country road. You round the last corner to find this lovely place. What a warm welcome we received on arrival! An incredible level of hospitality and attention was lavished on us throughout our stay; nothing was too much trouble. Lovely food, a great environment and you could not find kinder hosts who are great fun. If you do not want the glitz of a big hotel you could not do better than stay at The Escape.
