This was our 2nd stay at the Aegean Gate Hotel, we arrived late 11.45pm, Mahmut was waiting with open arms and a huge smile, wow what a greeting, our bags were quickly taken upstairs and within minutes we were sat drinking chilled wine by the pool, the following morning we had just as lovely a greeting from Gary and Rory, not forgetting the extended family grand-dad, Samson and all the cats, too many names to mention, we spent an hour or so catching up on what had happened since we were last here, just over a year ago, at this hotel you are treated as friends, we had a top floor suite with balcony giving you stunning views, rooms are very spacious, well appointed and impeccably clean, a credit to the owners and staff,
one of our passions is dining out and Gary mentioned a new French restaurant "Evimiz"
we quickly booked for that evening, fantastic, rustic and romantic, if you are in Bodrum make sure you dine here, we spent most mornings out walking or shopping, afternoons by the pool or on the sun loungers overlooking the Aegean Sea, lots of peace and quiet, which is just what we wanted, Mahmut on hand for drinks and food, we had lunch one day which Mahmut suggested we try a couple of different things from the menu, fresh lovely tasting food, wonderful, in no time at all our week stay was coming to an end, our stay at this hotel was everything we wanted and more, we would highly recommend the Aegean Gate Hotel. A big thank you to Gary, Rory and Mahmut for making our stay so wonderful. Tony and Carole.

Great hotel, great location, great staff. Spent a very enjoyable long weekend at the Aegean Gate. The hotel is far enough from the Bodrum beach strip to provide a peaceful retreat, however, close enough to walk there in just a few minutes. The staff was very efficient and friendly, and provided excellent restaurant/excursion recommendations and bookings. Nice pool setting and a very good breakfast as well.

We went to the Aegean Gate Hotel in June 2013 - sorry it's taken so long to write this review, guys! Once again, we were absolutely delighted with our stay at this lovely little hotel. Gary and Rory were brilliant hosts and it was a real pleasure to see them once more, as it was to see Mahmut and Fatima, both of whom remembered us from the first time. We went at the time of the supposed "troubles" in Turkey, which we understand kept many potential guests away. Honestly, there was absolutely no trouble in Bodrum whatsoever...the most we saw was a very peaceful and friendly group of people singing their protest in the town centre, and that was it. No guns. No bombs. No skirmishes. No violence. No unpleasantness of any sort (unless you include certain guests who expected 5-star accommodation, which the Aegean Gate has never claimed itself to be - although it certainly earns its 5 stars on Trip Advisor). The mainstream media has a lot to answer for! So if you are one of those put off going - and still haven't organised your holiday abroad - don't delay, book your room whilst the weather is still warm! Gary and Rory - we'll be back!

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Aegean gate in June 2013 for four nights. We spent just over two weeks in Turkey and our stay there was by far our favourite. The rooms were incredibly spacious, comfortable and impeccably clean. Gary and Rory gave us very helpful and honest advice for where to eat, how to navigate the city and places to visit in and around Bodrum town. They also arranged a boat ride for us, which ended up being one of our favourite days on the trip. Mahmoud made the best fresh breakfast and was always ready to serve you a cold beer and tell you a good story. And then there's Samson, the sweetest gentle giant dog you'll ever meet. If you're an animal lover, the Aegean Gate is the perfect spot. The animals are great entertainment while you lie by the pool. Make sure to learn some of the animal rescue stories. They will melt your heart. As you can see from our pictures, the views are absolutely breathtaking. I truly cannot say enough good things about this hotel and I cannot wait to go back one day. Don't even hesitate on booking the Aegean Gate. There is a reason they are rated the best and you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: The rooms were incredibly spacious and clean. The floors above ground level have nice, spacious balc...

We had such an amazing holiday, I would definitely recommend this hotel. The owners and staff are so welcoming and friendly, and they give great recommendations of the local area, attractions, restaurants etc. The grounds of the hotel are spectacular and the rooms are very quiet and private. We loved it and would go back without hesitation.

My Mom and I stayed in this charming boutique hotel in Aug. We loved everything in this hotel, the suite apartment on the second floor has a bedroom and spacious living room a beautiful balcony that has a sea view. We spent the early morning and late night in the balcony enjoying the spectacular view! The rooms are clean and nice. The breakfast was always fresh and Mahmoud accommodated our option of brown bread the next day we arrived. The swimming pool is amazing specially to dip in during a hot summer afternoon. And the most important part is the hosts Gary and Rory and Mahmoud the assistant. They have done all what they can to make our stay an enjoyable and relaxing one. And they Did!!! In our opinion this is the best place to stay in Bodrum.

We were lucky enough to spend several days of our 3 and 1/2 weeks in Turkey this summer at the Aegean Gate. We were not sure we wanted to visit Bodrum as we worried it may be over-touristed. We had such a lovely stay at the Aegean Gate with fabulous hosts, Gary, Rory, and Mahmet. They directed us to all the best places to visit while creating a place that we didn't want to leave. It's a heavenly place - relaxed, beautiful, fantastic views, perfect pool, great breakfast, spacious and clean rooms...I could go on and on. We highly recommend the Aegean Gate!
