This little hotel looks out onto the beach, and the restaurant is first in line to take in the view.
This hotel looks out over the bay, with just a few steps leading down to the sand. Authentic restaurants are right on hand, too, and it’s just a 10-minute walk to Side’s centre.
As the Med is practically your bed-fellow, there’s no need for a pool – though the rooftop terrace has a plunge pool if you want it. Food-wise, there’s a beachfront restaurant and a café-bar for snacks.
Styled in light colours with bold outlines, these double rooms come with a limited sea view and a balcony, offering that extra space outside. Your room will also include a ceiling fan and tea and coffee making facilities.
We went to the Beach House as part of another road trip in southern Turkey, on the recommendation of my daughter who had stayed here about 3 years earlier. We stayed initially for 4 days moving onto Alanya afterwards..... it was so good, we came back in the middle of our trip to spend a further 3 days in Side at the Beach House. The location is superb right on the beachfront close to everything in Antique Side. Should you require the nightlife simply stroll down the road, likewise shopping - the shops are but a stroll away. But what I loved was the ability to wake up with the balcony door open, to the sound of sea, go straight down to the beach and have a swim before coming back to a beautiful breakfast. The staff are all lovely and Penny and Ali who own the hotel, quietly work in the background making what I know is a hard job, seem effortless and go like clockwork. Penny speaks to everyone and was invaluable in suggesting places to go or try. Whilst we were there the theatre had free concerts with a wide range of music from Jazz to traditional Turkish... all again, within easy walking distance.
From the moment we stepped off the plane and out of the airport, we were whisked away by a private transfer that we had previously arranged with Penny, we were looked after and looked after well. Just what I needed after a stressful year in the UK.
Not to be missed - The Temple of Apollo by moonlight; but just staying in Side gives you the full works from beach resort to historic Turkey. You can eat a variety of food, with locally caught fish a must, - to traditional mezes and typical Turkish casseroles. Absolutely loads of restaurants close by. The tourist is well catered for.
I have seen some of the other reviews here and have to say a few things in answer... my 25 year old daughter stayed a week here and loved it - but she is one who wants to explore and not be constantly entertained and have everything come to her. It is an older style of hotel and the wifi is best downstairs - what difficulty is there in that? Don't expect the Dorchester this is Turkish 5* - the room comes with breakfast - that's a TURKISH breakfast, although the staff go out of their way to help if you want something different. Its not all-in, if you want that go down the road to the modern hotels. The chap on the beach safely stored the lounge liners and umbrellas each evening and cleaned the beach... First thing in the morning he was back again raking up everything before setting out the loungers and umbrellas on both the sea front and the terraces. This was the first hotel in Side and thankfully some of that remains - including Byzantine remains in the garden. The staff start at 8 and work through until you go to bed and will do the same tomorrow, whether you are here or not - do you really need to abuse this. Very happy to recommend this hotel - we will be coming back again.More

This was our first visit to the hotel and stayed for a week. The hotel is in the perfected location in Old Side, overlooking the beach. Our room was at the side of the hotel, but still had a great view of the West Beach. The room was basic, but very clean. The owners and staff were excellent. The food was very good and available all day.
If you want to enjoy Turkey to the full, this is the sort of hotel you should stay in. Not the sterile all exclusive hotels. Go and enjoy the local restaurants. We would have no hesitation in returning to the Beach House. More
A gem of a hotel
We have stayed at The Beach House twice now and will be coming back. If you want a 5 star jungle, don't stay here. The hotel is small, friendly, scrupulously clean and great value. The views from the sea front rooms are fabulous and falling asleep to the sound of the sea gently washing the sand is a joy.
The staff are efficient and friendly and the food served is good quality and plentiful.
This hotel is in a superb location in old Side. Close to many good restaurants and the extensive historic sights around the old town (and further afield).
If you want a relaxing holiday, close to many historic sites then this hotel can't be beaten. It may be a little outdated in some peoples eyes but we think that adds to it's charm.More

Great Hotel for a relaxing holiday.
We had a lovely 2 weeks at this hotel in September. Everyone was friendly, helpful & could not do enough for us. The hotel was extremely clean & the food very good.
This is a small, friendly hotel in the best location in Side. It has all the charm & character of an authentic Turkish hotel which is sadly lacking in the large all inclusive establishments.More

just back from 2 weeks at the Beach House, Penny and Ali very good hosts and staff excellent. Small medical emergency that without Penny's offered help would have been more difficult. Booked last room 405 which was a little tired and disappointing compared to others, declined upgrade when booking due to extra cost over the 2 weeks which i regret even for 1 week. Everything clean and relaxed atmosphere with staff showing a genuine interest in guests. Didn't miss the wifi or the TV. Located in antique Side close to a small beach the hotel has own restaurant serving good food but there are also plenty of other excellent local restaurants. Worth knowing that the clientelle is generally more mature with lots of returning guests but soon fitted in. Would return but only for a week as that's enough time to chill out. More
