Review: Sehsuvar Peace Pension, Egirdir
I’d been looking forward to several relaxing days, based on the description and the glowing reports, but checked out after only two teeth-chattering nights. All I can conclude is there’s been great deal of artistic licence and it does not serve the traveller well. To itemize each incident would make this too lengthy a review. Comfort is the primary requirement. While the picturesque old couple were cosy in their home downstairs, we froze. They made a big show of unplugging their heater which we felt we couldn’t, in all decency, accept. As they spoke no English, communication was via email to the son in NZ!!! His reply was that the pension owns many heaters and implied we were fools not to accept the parents’ offer. They were well aware of our discomfort from the first night but refrained from making one of the ‘many heaters’ available to us. As the weather was too cold and wet for the small courtyard (rose garden is an exaggeration), we were served breakfasts in their sitting room, all very nice and hospitable except that we’d be more comfortable without being under scrutiny and making the effort at jovial conversation in mime. To add insult to injury, another guest was given access to our bathroom, without our permission, while we were at breakfast! We only found out when they detained us downstairs while the others guest was showering. As the pension is advertised in English and I had exchanged emails prior to our arrival, it’s not unreasonable to expect that some English would be spoken or understood. Guests rely on having someone to assist with information. In so many ways the pension falls far short of reasonable expectation. Running a guesthouse in Turkey from NZ does not cut it!
