From the start, Mustafa gave us lots of information about where to go for interesting walks (and there are plenty of those around Cappadoccia). He even drove us into the town 15km away where he lives so we could check out the potters there (the local bus back was also fun).
Our stone arch room was delightfully constructed and the heating worked very well (it was cold enough to require double layers of clothing most days). The bed was very comfy.
We had the front room which meant people getting up early for the balloon rides could be heard outside our door before 5am, but this was OK during low season because it only happened once. High season might be a pain if you're woken every morning when you want to sleep in. The mosque calls can also be a bit of a shock for a light sleeper the first couple of nights.
Breakfast was simple food with a lot of variety and his mum's meze was delicious.
Location into town was great - not quite in the middle but close enough to walk everywhere comfortably (with the last bit uphill to get rid of some of the delicious local food).
