Bed and Breakfasts are called “Pansiyon” in Turkish. That’s why “pension” is commonly used as the English equivalent in Turkey.
In the past, bed and breakfasts were family owned businesses with shared cooking wc/bathroom faclities. Today most bed and breakfasts, though still mostly family run businesses, offer the comfort of a hotel combined with a home atmosphere. Most of them hire staff for cooking, cleaning and service. Rooms are all with private wc/shower facilities, some with TV and sattelite system, most with air condition either included in the price or as an extra. There are usually a bar and a restaurant part where table d'hote and à la carte menus are served.
Bed and breakfasts in Gumusluk are generally in Gumusluk Bay and in Cukurbuk.
In Gumusluk, during the high season you can book a room in one of the bed and breakfasts situated directly by the sea. In the mornings, you can have your breakfast either at your b&b or eat a toast or pogaca (turkish salty pastry) and drink tea at the café in Gumusluk Bay.
B&bs around Cukurbuk, about one km from Gumusluk Bay in the direction of Yalikavak, are ideal for those who don’t like crowded beaches.
In most of the holiday resorts of Turkey, there are rooms available even in high season. However, Gumusluk covers a small area and there are not so many bed and breakfasts to meet the demand in high season. That’s why it is a good idea to book early and also take advantage of discounted rates.
Alternatively, you can also plan your holiday for the months before and after high season. High season is considered from mid-late June, when schools finish for their summer holiday, through to the end of August. However, weather conditions are ideal for a wonderful holiday between May and Octobre.
