My new husband and I stayed at the hotel for 10 days and were extremely impressed with every aspect of the place. The owners, Gary and Rory, welcomed us in to the fold and we were treated like family for the whole time we were there, which made us feel really relaxed and comfortable. The other staff were very friendly and professional and really added to the holiday as well, as did all of the lovely adopted cats and dogs.
The hotel is set back a bit from Bodrum town centre, which makes it feel like a retreat from the busy resort, which gets going in the middle of May. The hotel is beautiful, inside and out (the photos only tell half the story). The rooms are kept absolutely spotless and are decorated very tastefully. The pool, bar and garden area have been so well thought out that you can really get whatever you want out of the hotel - whether you want to have a very private and quiet time, or spend time with others and have a laugh around the bar (or a bit of both).
Breakfast is served at very civilised times outside, overlooking the sea, and is very healthy. There is a menu available for lunch and dinner which is really handy when you would rather lounge around the hotel, and there is a bar next to the pool which offers very reasonably priced drinks - this is where we spent most of our evenings!
As you can see from our ratings for the hotel, we had a brilliant time and it wouldn't have been possible without our hosts, who made a real effort to make our stay enjoyable. It was a most entertaining and relaxing holiday and we couldn't have asked for more!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Bodrum's smallest boutique hotel set in unique natural grounds. Wonderful balcony views across the Aegean sea to the Greek island of Kos. Within easy access to Bodrum centre but far enough away from the bustling nightlife of Bodrum for a peaceful night's sleep. Irish owners/English speaking ensure European standards. A 'chilled out' location for the discerning traveler seeking that holiday with a difference. ... more less
