This most beautiful hotel is a wonderfully gracious complement to the marvels of nearby ancient Ephesis and the other sites in this fascinating region of Turkey. There can be no better informed hosts than Nick and Maggie Justice who have designed every aspect of The Muses to ensure not only the comfort but the aesthetic pleasure of their guests. Everywhere the eye rests is something to enjoy; book-lined shelves, antique furniture and a collection of lovely objects collected from far and wide, the whole most perfectly blended. Their knowledge of the ancient sites which will have drawn most guests to this particular hotel in this special part of Turkey is unparalled and they are more than happy to share it, supplying information, leaflets and photocopied excerpts of particular relevance to each guest's particular programme.
On a more mundane level those without the desire to visit the sites every day will enjoy a delicious breakfast, a wander round the village of Kirazli followed, perhaps, by a dip in the hotel pool. There is something for everyone to enjoy here, wherever your intersts lie.

Room Tip: Every room is charming and comfortable. You are bound to enjoy whichever one you choose.

An absolutely wonderful hotel! Welcoming, warm, well-kept a perfect home-from-home. The delightful rooms are all named after individual Muses, and decorated luxuriously and sympathetically, with ensuite bathrooms, antiques and paintings and prints reflecting this beautiful area of Turkey.
The hosts, Maggie and Nick are a charismatic couple, whose combined talents include an intensive knowledge and love of the area, (Maggie was trained in ancient history), cookery, reflected by the delicious breakfasts, the piano, Nick is a superb player, and entertains guests frequently, (Although I wasn't lucky enough to hear him during my stay.)
I managed to see some of the main sights, was overwhelmed by Ephesus, don't miss the museum there, which is superb, and shows statuary and artefacts excavated from the city.
I hope to return again soon and left wishing that my stay had been much longer!

Everything that you can think of that you would want in an intelligently designed and tastfully furnished hotel. Maggie and Nick Justice were generous, kind, open, and happy to be our hosts. The room -- The Clio, muse of history, for the unwashed masses, is a spectacular room. It felt like home. The town of Kirazli is very charming and as far away from touristy swill as one could get. We love this place and it does feel like perfection.

Room Tip: If you want views, trandiness, "luxury", go to a Hilton. This place wonderful -- all the rooms are great, but the Clio is a real delight.

This is a marvellous hotel in a secluded location off the street of a traditional Turkish village about ten miles inland from the brash resort of Kusadasi. Maggie and Nick, the charming owners, have created an environment that is at once civilised, extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean. They could not have been more in helpful in making us feel at home and giving us the benefit of their considerable local, and other, knowledge. There is a delightful pool area where we sat for the delicious breakfast, a book lined lounge and an attractive courtyard garden. It is an ideal base for visiting the ancient sites of Ephesus, Priene and Didyma/Miletus as well as the various coastal attractions. We stayed for five nights and, all in all, it was a wonderful experience. You do need a car, though, to take full advantage of the location.

What a delightful oasis - Maggie was the most delightful host for our 4 day stay. The weather was quite warm whilst we were there so we really enjoyed using the pool. Breakfast, each morning by the pool, was yummy - fresh fruit, yoghurt, homemade jams.
Each of the rooms is perfectly comfortable with amazing attention to detail. We were extremely appreciative of being able to have a small load of washing done as we had been on the road for over a week. We were travelling with a guide and a driver and Maggie made both extremely welcome. I adored her amazing library of archaeological resources and would have loved extra time to read more about where we had been. Kirazli is a tiny little traditional village.

Room Tip: I think that each of The Muses' rooms would be just as gorgeous as ours.
