Another great release from Alastiar Sawday and his team. There's a great variety of accommodation in this book. From cave hotels to great costal escapes, no doubt there'll be something to tickle your fancy.

I used this book for a 2 week vacation Aug-Sep '07 travelling through Turkey and on the whole the places it recommended to stay were very good. On average beds were comfortable with clean white linen, and the bathrooms clean and in a good condition. What I liked also, was that each B&B seemed to have a real character of its own including that of the host! The breakfasts were good value too.

The only reason I am not giving 5 stars is because the book clearly needs updating (which should happen in 2008): prices are no longer accurate e.g. on average rooms are an extra 20 Turkish Lire a night on top of the printed price and one place - Villa Carla at Datca was no longer open. So calling ahead to make a reservation is best if you can. In conclusion, if you want to drive around Turkey do get this book or pick up the bi-lingual English/Turkish version by the real Turkish authors (not Mr Sawday)in Turkey entitled: 'The Little Book of Small Hotels in Turkey.' It is worth it and it will bring you into contact with local people of character, rather than the mass tourism phenomenon.

As with all Alastair Sawday's publications, this book proved invaluable during a week spent driving around Turkey. The book is contains excellent detail and many inspiring places to stay. I fact just reading the book and planning our trip was nearly as much fun as the trip itself. Our route was selected around the establishments listed in the book and proved to be a fantastic experience, many places we would not have found had we not stayed in the hotels in the book. Planning another trip this year and the book is our main route planning tool. Thoroughly reccomended!
