While most of our family stayed in Oyku Evi next door, my aunt stayed in Gamirasu as there wasn't enough room in Oyku Evi. The staff were exceptionally charming and friendly, and went out of their way to be nice to all of us, and not just my aunt who was the guest. They went so far as to give her a little gift and one to the rest of the family as well!
Her room was a lovely cave room, with innovative lighting, beautiful embroidered bedsheets, and a little cave above the bed.
It was very different from where we were staying, a larger hotel, with more staff and more professional, but very warm and friendly.
We had dinner one night in the restaurant, which was reasonably tasty but quite pricey, prices being in euros rather than lira.
Location is a bit out of the way, but it was charming to live in a village rather than a town. Hats off to a very well-maintained, beautiful property with outstanding staff and service.
