The rooms are very basic have old carpeting, none of the bedding matches and is in poor state, evidence of previous occupants by the amount of dead fly

we hadnt even got in the room before we noticed our door was falling away from the wall. he opened the door to tired old pink carpet and a mismatch of colours, when he left and we got chance to look around i found blood smeared on the wall, white stains on the bedding and the towels were disgusting. i couldnt find a plug socket at all and the celling in the bathroom was falling away. they hadnt even moped the floor in the bathroom.
when we went to the couple who we travelled with there room wasnt as bad as ours, but still unclean. we decided then we couldnt stay there. none of us are very picky about where we stay, being aged from 18-21 all we want is a clean bed to put our head down. you dont really notice the mismatch of colours after a night of cocktails.
we went down the road to a lovely bar & resturant & hotel called the three bells and enjoyed our holiday.

I MUST ADD THAT ROOMS WERE KEPT SPOTLESSLY CLEAN BY VERY HARD WORKING MAIDS.
RESTAURANT AND BAR: Free breakfast included in price was a turkish one, though English variations were sold at a price. Food was nice, but Icmeler has so many wonderful restaurants that most people ate out and it paled in comparison. Watch your bar bills as staff tend to 'slip' drinks on to your bill. Also smokers beware the staff find no problem in 'stealing' a ciggie from your packet! At night the bar was closed at 2 am, but if management and their friends (seemed to be a meeting area for all the turks) were there it stayed open all night!
STAFF: All the 'boys' worked very hard all day and night. Was amusing to watch the typically turkish antics of the staff with the young and not so young girls!
ENTERTAINMENT: 2 members of staff gyrating on a podium all night to the same dance tunes wasn't my idea of fun!

We were made to feel very welcome right away by all the staff. Ali gave us the low down on the hotel. It was taken over last year by Levent Duran aka Lee, who has totally transformed the downstairs area, pool and restaurant. She also made us aware that renovations still had to be done to the rooms and that while downstairs was 4* upstairs was still only 2*.
All the rooms overlook the pool and we had a corner room which seemed bigger than the rest, basic but clean. Air con was extra (which was needed). Safety deposit boxes (payable) were in main reception area.
Breakfast which was included in price was very nice (Turkish) but they also offered any type of breakfast anyone wanted. We had 2 evening meals at the hotel and the quality and quantity was excellent, would equal any 4* restaurant in UK.
The T-bone steak was enormous and the chicken roulade was out of his world. I think anything the chef cooked was great, most of the plates always went back empty.
We always ended back at Heat and Breeze for evening entertainment. The staff were very friendly and always joking with customers. Ken the barman mixing his cocktails and juggling kept us entertained. Then there was the nightly bar dancing with Ken, Yosef and then Lee, the craic was great.
All in all a really good holiday, 1 week not long enough. Although we never go back to same place twice I would certainly go back to Icmeler and the Heat and Breeze and it will be an added bonus when Lee gets his refurbishment plans carried out when the season is over.
A big thank to all the staff for making us feel very welcome and for their friendship, see you next year.

As stated previously rooms are to be ungraded during the winter however currently are clean and sufficient for place to sleep, shower and keep clothes - what more do you want on holiday?
Downstairs the pool, restaurant and bar area are beautiful - well done Lee.
Ali manages the rooms and Kadir the restaurant both making you feel welcome. Chef cooks the most amazing food, I have not yet had a bad meal and heard many compliments on the quality and service.
It is located very central on main road with the dolmus (bus) stopping outside and just a few mins walk to the beach.
Goldtrail rep changed mid year - thank God. Daniel the rep at the hotel is fab (you can pay me later).
