The staff at this hotel were really helpful, the rooms lovely...
Our tour guide Hassan was passionate about his tours making Gallipoli his Wife, and Troy his Darling.... If you manage to have him as a guide, you will be enthralled. Ramazan the manager, booked our ongoing tour for the next 4 days, and we have been soo looked after by bus drivers and hotels. Thank you for your wonderful Turkish hospitality.
