I'd organised a secret birthday trip to Goreme for my husband's birthday, co-ordinating 2 other couples to meet us there. The Kelebek staff were great regarding my constant emailing of questions and booking us on tours and put my mind at ease about all various concerns I had.
When we arrived, the staff couldn't be more genuinely friendly, professional and easy going all at the same time. The rooms were absolutely beautiful and full of character and though we had a small issue with our shower it was immediently fixed without fuss (and with a smile!). The breakfast was amazing, so fresh and delicious but made even better by the veiw from the eating areas. Every part of the hotel seems to have an amazing veiw or is just beautiful in itself.
To add to the excitement (on top of the balloon ride and quad biking tours - both highly recommended) my husband had an allergic reaction to something he ate or drank (NOT at the hotel) and the staff at Kelebek were absolutely brilliant - they sped both of us to the hospital in nearby Nevsehir and stayed for the whole time (about 3 hours) helping with translation and various things. This was far more than just being professional, a genuine concern for his wellbeing was felt. The next day they checked up on us to see how he was and then went to the restaurant concerned to see if they could find out the ingredients of the meal so we could see what may have caused this. Again, this was beyond our expectations and we are very grateful for all their help.
I can not fault Kelebek in any way and would not even consider going anywhere else - I certainly hope that we will come back one day soon. As one of my friends who was travelling with us said "It's like Hassan just wanders about and makes sure people are happy".
As far as Goreme is concerned, I don't think I have been to a more spectacular place. I have been to many places but this by far has got to be the most unusual and most stunning place I've been to, not just for it's beauty but the vast history behind it and for the people that live there today. I could go on and on about how fabulous our stay was, but whoever is reading this - just go and see for yourself!
(4 Aussies, living in London + 2 from Sydney stayed and all loved the place)
