The hotel is comfortable, quaint, clean, homely, pretty, charming and the staff are much the same - they mostly speak only a little English but they do everything they can to be helpful and friendly. Hulya Aykurt is the only English speaking member of staff and without her the experience at the Zeytin Konak would have been far less enjoyable
The hotel has no restaurant or bar but a limited amount of snacks and Turkish 'fast' food can be provided during the day - and very well prepared and presented it is! One lady, who we almost hid in our suitcase, makes the most wonderful cakes - they are worth a visit on their own!
We were there for 10 nights and had no major problems -
So - the minor issues.....this hotel needs to sort its welcome to foreign and English speaking guests - a proper well presented welcome pack with a guide to the location of its suggested restaurants with more, detailed information about local town such as Cesme and Ilica etc, and the local market....there is a guide but it leaves more questions than it answers
The other issue - we were there for 10 days - it too the first 8 to get a working light in our bathroom - it was temporarily repaired a few times until an electrician was called and sorted 2 days before we left - lol
Overall - a most relaxing hotel, well designed, well furnished and with staff that, without exception, the owners should be absolutely proud of!
But, as I said, very special thanks to Hulya Aykurt
(I have rated Fitness Centre and Room Service as terrible purely because neither was on offer at this hotel)
