the
gallipoli
houses

Welcome to the website of
the Gallipoli houses,
a small authentic Bed & Breakfast,
located right in the heart of
the Gallipoli National Park.


Authentic accommodation in a tranquil setting, a stone's throw away from the Gallipoli Battlefields
... What a visit – I would have no hesitation in recommending anyone to “go independent” and visit the Peninsula using The Gallipoli Houses. The drive from Istanbul is very straightforward. Your central location looking up to Gun Ridge is ideal and the accommodation left nothing to be desired. The bonus was Eric’s in depth knowledge of the events of 1915. Pete Helmore–General Secretary/OMRS-United Kingdom

I truly wish I could have stayed another few days, but I'm determined to become a "regular" from this point on ... Thanks again. Sir Peter Jackson, Producer and Director-New Zealand

The accommodation was first class. Indeed, it was so very comfortable that I now realize that we need a new mattress for the bed at home. The room and its view were an idyll of peace and tranquility. The modern plumbing was a great relief and a superb tonic after a long, hot day's walk over the battlefields. Michael Robson–Israel

Thank you for your warm hospitality during my visit to Canakkale. After our early morning stint, Tim and I very much enjoyed spending some time with you. Should I have the opportunity to visit Canakkale in future I would be delighted to visit the Gallipoli Houses again. Julia Gillard, Prime Minister of Australia

The Gallipoli Houses passed my wildest imagination. Everything was perfect: Kind and helpful owners, a great setting, very interesting conversation, advice from a guy who knows the ground. And all at a very reasonable price. On top of that, it wasn’t really like staying in a hotel. It was more like staying with friends. ... I will certainly advise anyone going to Gallipoli to stay with you. Philip Lecane-Ireland

A belated note to thank you very much for looking after me so well when I stayed with you in early July. I thoroughly enjoyed everything about visiting Gallipoli, but the Gallipoli Houses were a particular highlight. Your location is out-standing, by far the most convenient to the battlefields, and your hospitality was first class. Major-General Michael Crane-Head Military Strategic Commitments/Australian Defence Forces.

Thank you for a great time staying with you ... and the terrific breakfast this morning. I have been like a crocodile digesting my meal all day and only had supper at 2000 so well fed was I when I left you. Michael St.-Maur Sheil–WW1 photographer-United Kingdom

I was grateful for the help you kindly gave me in following in the steps of my Great Uncle, general Sir Charles Trotman, RMLI. Your help, advice and huge knowledge helped me enormously. Andy Trotman–United Kingdom

Just wanting to let you know how fabulous our recent stay was with you. The Gallipoli Houses is a magnificent place to stay. Thank you especially to Eric for giving us perfect directions to enable us to walk across the peninsular and trace the footsteps of our relatives who had fought in the campaign. Rob & Tynan John-Australia

This is just a quick email to thank you again for such a wonderful experience on Gallipoli. It was unforgettable and we are definitely planning to return! ... Once again many thanks for your marvellous hospitality. Zane Kidd - Deputy Secretary - Ministry of Defence NZ

We are very appreciative of your warm hospitality to members of the team managing the commemorations. I look forward to visiting the Gallipoli Houses again – in a less rushed context, I hope... Ian Biggs – Ambassador of Australia to Turkey
being talked about is bad, they say;
believe me though,
not being talked about is worse.
