We loved Goreme, and this hotel made our stay. We had a beautiful room, in a cave, with a lounge, huge bathroom and real cave bedroom. If I'm being fussy I would say it smelt very cave like and musty, which did keep me awake for a while, but we got used to it after three nights and it wasn't really a problem. It was a very short walk into town, a few hills, but only minutes away, you are very much in the centre.
We stayed with two other couples, and intended on eating out at different restaurants each night, as we had done throughout our travels. However we arrived quite late the first night and they accommodated us at hotel restaurant, so that is where we ate. The staff were so fabulous, we ended up eating there every night, it was simply too good!!! Great food, fabulous service, all at a great price, why look elsewhere!
We arranged quite a lot of the trips from the hotel before we arrived, but really there was no need, they were super efficient, and could have arranged all this for us.
We went on the organic breakfast trip with the Owner, Ali, which was a fantastic addition to the holiday. Wonderful ride in the tractor, wonderful Turkish smiley ladies to serve us, all a lot of fun, and hugely informative on the region/food/culture. This excursion is a must, and is totally free...how often does that happen?
Our one sadness was the pool was small and a bit mouldy, could have been a bad week I don't know, but the tiles were all green, and we didn't go in, terribly uninviting. However we did use the Hamam at the hotel which was fabulous, never been so clean in our lives, a lot of fun and very professional. Gardens were also beautiful, lovely to sit in and spend an hour or so reading in the shade.
All in all, we loved our stay, thank you Kelebek, we hope to return one day. We would strongly recommend staying with you to anyone.
