More than 1,500 years ago, a Byzantine villa stood in the place of the Hotel Beach House. In fact, you can still see the ruins in the hotel’s gardens – look out for ancient arches and crumbling walls. One thing that hasn’t changed over the years, though, is the views – the property looks out over the Bay of Side.
With the Mediterranean Sea just footsteps away, the hotel doesn’t have a swimming pool, although you’ll find a plunge pool on the rooftop terrace. And when you fancy a snack or a drink during the day, there’s a café at the hotel.
When it comes to exploring, you’re in a great position. The property is set in the heart of the old town, so there are traditional restaurants and market stalls less than a minutes’ walk away. Plus, it’s only a ten-minute stroll to the centre of Side.

Beautiful view and very welcoming
This place was the highlight of the visit to Side which is all in all a pretty horrible tourist trap. There were a whole lot of renovations happening and we were the only guests but everyone was very friendly and made us welcome. The view from the room was beautiful and waking up to the sea was a joy. Very relaxed here and would totally recommend a stay here. More
There was nothing we enjoyed about this hotel, the room was disgusting, holes in the carpet, rust all over window, straw coming out of the ceiling and not to mention the bathroom with the taps covered in rust and goodness knows what, the bath was peeling away inside and mould on the wall, the bed sheets also leave a lot to be desired. The food is awful. They also advertise a top pool on the terrace, this is a dirty pond. Staff are rude and unhelpful. Sunbeds on the beach, if you pay, and all the proceeds go to this hotel owners. While we were there a couple who were looking for somewhere to stay had a look at one of the rooms and decided they would be better of pulling there cases round side looking for somewhere else, rather than stay there (says it all).More

Total relaxation at the Beach House
Firstly a BIG Thank You to Penny. We arrived at the Beach house in the evening and we new straight away this was exactly what we were looking for. Situated right in the heart of the old town and directly in front of the beach, Full of Character and Charm. The staff were lovely, very frienfly and helpfull. ~The Turkish breakfast was a great way to start the day. Feta cheese, bread, olives and egg with tea or coffee. We ate a few time in the Soundwaves restaurant next door for lunch and dinner and each time it was spot on. Freshly caught fish to die for. There are lots of good local restaurant also within walking distance. The rooms are traditional in style and decor, a few have been updated in the front of the hotel. We had a massive balcony on the 4th floor with a stunning view of the bay. Sunbeds are £2 per day and well worth it, we pitched ourselves on the left hand side of the beach and had the sun till the bitter end. Bliss. All in all a very relaxing holiday with the Traditonal feel of Turkey. not stuck in a 5* All inclusive with no idea where you really are!!More

The Beach House Hotel, Side Old Town
We stayed here for a week in October after booking late through Thomsons. The Hotel is in a brilliant location right across the road from the beach. However, the public areas are looking a bit tired and some of the rooms are in need of a complete refurbishment (including our room 405). There are no fridges in the rooms and only one on the 3rd floor landing for water and medicines. We e-mailed the hotel to request a sea-view room and this was agreed with the owner Penny at a cost of 7 pounds per night. However, on arrival the room had already been allocated to somebody else and we had to make do with a side room. This was very disappointing on the occasion of our Golden Wedding (previously explained to Penny in our e-mail). The breakfast needs some variation as it was exactly the same every day (cold hard-boiled egg, cheese and salad). However the hotel does have a certain charm and I have to say I would return as it represents good value for money but would make sure of a sea view room.More
