Just back lastnite from the TURIHAN hotel. We werent expecting much as it was a cheap holiday £300 (thomas cook). but we were pleasantly surprised. Our room was (401) ground floor facing pool with a large balcony. The room had a seating area sofa with table and large double bed. The cleaners were in every day with clean sheets and towels. We ate several times at the hotel lunch or dinner and the food was very reasonably priced, i had steak and seabass both were good (its 3 star remember, so dont expect michelin star). Seemingly you could get half board but i wouldnt bother it was just a basic buffet. The breakfast was turkish with sausages and scrambled egg thrown in for the fussy.
The hotel wasnt busy as its end of season so couldnt comment on the noise from the other hotel. The staff were friendly but not over board. The massage man was a pain but gave up asking eventually. We went on the boat trip which was through Indiana travel costing £13 good value for money and we got lunch. Got a free turkish bath when booking the trip but when we got there they tried to sell other things. The hotel was cheaper. We took the dolmus to Bodrum which was really much the same as gumbet. The beaches were shingle and there were alot of stray dogs lurking about but thats normal for gumbet and they never really bothered you.
All in all the were pleasantly surprised by the hotel and staff. really good hotel for the bargain traveller and would definately recommend it. We met some lovely people. Alot of people were return customers to this hotel, which says alot.
Gumbet - we werent impressed, it was very commercialised and a bit tacky. Theres not much turkish culture going on couldnt even hear a mosque, we could have been anywhere really. I have been to nicer parts of turkey before and i cant see us returning to Gumbet. Hope this all helps ... happy holidays
