We visited Topset Hotel for a week on an out of season break. It was great value for what we received, in our opinion. We got a good price on a week away with and they arranged our transfers for us. The accommodation was basic but spacious and well kept. We had a wonderful sea view and the gardens are lovely too. Breakfast is basic but adequate and the bar is nice, serving good reasonably priced meals. The staff were friendly and helpful and we weren't left wanting of anything.... more

Excellently located hotel by the sea, my wife and I spent a pleasant week at Topset House on a good deal we found via We had a nice mini villa with balconies to the front and the rear and there's a very nice swimming pool area with plenty of beds and umbrellas. Decent breakfast each morning, Turkish style with the addition of cake, and meals throughout the rest of the day were competitively priced. We had a working BBC News channel to keep up with events back home and the WiFi... more

We were looking for a cheap getaway in north Cyprus somewhere that was decent enough but not fancy and we found Topset House on the gonorthcyprus website. We booked in for a week and were pleased to find the hotel in such a great location, overlooking the beach and the sea. Our room was basic but attractive and spacious, cleaned every day, and the hotel grounds and pool area are well kept. We were impressed by the good selection on offer at breakfast and ate at the hotel other times too, the price... more

We got a cheap and cheerful break at Topset House through gonorthcyprus, first time using the company but won't be out last, Gary in sales sorted everything for us, including the transfers. Yes it is a very basic place but for the price it's what we expected. Our room was small but functional and cleaned daily. The hotel is set quite far from the city centre which was ideal for us as we just wanted some peace and quiet. The grounds are very nice, lovely gardens and the sea nearby. We were impressed... more

We decided to book a last-minute break at Topset Hotel through GoNorthCyprus. We were a bit unsure after reading the reviews but we really did need to get away for as cheap as possible, and Topset Hotel seemed to fit the bill. We arrived very late and didn't expect any real standard of service at such an hour but were pleasantly surprised to find the staff willing to make us a meal, which was very nice! Our hotel room was clean and relatively comfortable with a balcony, we were grateful for the... more

We found Topset Hotel on and booked with the agent because the price and service was exceptional. We weren't looking for anything fancy or modern, more for the scenery, and the hotel had bags of it. It's a traditional hotel and it could do with a bit of a facelift but we found it to be charming and were very relieved that after our late arrival we could still enjoy a tasty meal in the restaurant, where the staff were wonderfully welcoming. Our room was pleasant and restful, the... more

We recently returned from a fabulously relaxing break in North Cyprus at Topset Hotel, which we booked through The value was good, we felt; the hotel was traditional and pleasant and the staff were very attentive to our needs. There's a lovely beach nearby and the hotel grounds are very pretty, filled with fruit and palm trees. Our room was perfectly adequate and spacious and there was a peaceful pool outside. The hotel has a nice setting outside the main town but it's only a... more

Don't waste your money!! Cyprus is a beautiful island and there are much better places than this place. The prices are too high for the value. Cleanliness of rooms and toilets lacking. Staff very rude. Can not bring in your own food, whats worse the food they provide is overpriced and not very tasty. Make sure you check your bill, as they tend to over charge or charge for things you haven't used. Enjoy your holiday by staying elsewhere!!... more

My family and I stayed here in May after being matched to it by our travel agent Gary at Our first impressions of the place were relatively good - cleanliness is always a major issue for me whenever I go abroad and I was happy to see that the Topset had obviously been cleaned very recently. While not particularly bad the interior though needed a little attention, to be honest. It definitely needs updating to compete with some of the other hotels in the immediate area and whilst... more

Just got back from this 2 week holiday. It should be called 'Faulty Towers'. Just read a previous review about all the rules and regulations and especially the owner. It is all true. Felt very sorry for the staff because they were berated in front of everyone, and the owner is very rude and forgets that we are actually paying to stay there. We actually saw water confiscated and then returned on the day of departure. The price of drinking water was 3 turkish lira a bottle and the local supermarket... more

We stayed at the Topset hotel for a week recently. In my opinion, this is one of the better hotels in or around Kyrenia, North Cyprus. The staff here were fabulous. They went out of their way on several occasions to make sure we were comfortable during our stay which was great. I can't compliment them enough. Our room was very nice too. It was larger than a typical hotel room, with a wonderful ocean view. The air conditioner worked okay, but had to be left on all the time in order to keep... more

We loved this hotel! We stayed at the Topset hotel recently and I was very impressed with the service and with the hotel itself. Our room was larger than usual, with a lovely ocean view and an unusual layout. There were steps leading from the living area to the bedroom, which made it interesting and unlike every other hotel room. It was very comfortable and impeccably clean, with nice furnishings. A great northern cyprus hotel!The Topset is located on the water, which makes it ideal if you want... more

We stayed at the Topset Hotel for a week last August and were very impressed! It was one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at in North Cyprus. The hotel staff were very professional and helpful, and the waiters are always cheerful, in spite of the long hours they work. We were given a large, lovely room with an ocean view, and we found it to be comfortable and very nice. It was two-tiered, with steps leading up to the living area, and more steps leading up to the bedroom. The Topset Hotel... more

Our experience at TOPSET HOTEL was anything but good. The old road leading down to the hotel had us a little worried on arrival, thinking -have we come to the right place? given the lovely pictures on their website. On arrival we had a glitch with our room which was then sorted out. Rooms not as great as the images on their web page- rather standard. But we thought what the heck we are only hear for a week lets just try to have an enjoyable stay. We unfortuneately we were in for a SHOCK!! The owner... more

My two friends and I were really impressed by the Topset Hotel. We went on a cheap last minute get away hoping for relaxation and perhaps the odd late night. We got exactly what we asked for! The hotel itself was the definition of peaceful. It was relaxing and didn't ever feel too busy. Nearby there were a few shops and there was a beach bar at night for when we did want a couple of cheeky drinks.The rooms were spacious. We got a split level room which almost felt like a flat. The best thing about... more

My family loved staying at the Topset, we had one of the best holdays! It was just effortless from start to finish and so relaxing. The Topset isn't one of these brand new ultra modern 'everything looks the same' hotels. I suppose in some ways you may think that it is slightly outdated but we felt that it was natural looking and its views were just stunning. The staff were also very friendly which gave it that personal touch, something you definitely wouldn't get from a more commercial hotel. We... more

I enjoyed a stay at the Top Set Hotel in June 2009. We flew in via Larnaca from where we were transferred by mini-bus via the border crossing to the hotel. Journey took about 80 minutes.The rooms were spacious and comfortable, and airconditioning was welcome as there was a heat wave, even by Cypriot standards, during our visit. Satellite TV shows BBC World News. Breakfast is adequate but not one of the hotel's highlights. There's a continental selection, the best bit being the lovely fresh bread... more

The Topset is a very relaxed hotel and we loved it because you would wander amongst the gardens or lounge by the pool, or sit by the sea, and nobody would hassle you or bother you. (The beach is man-made but who cares?!)We booked a first floor double room in the Emir Topset (the new part) which was really spacious, and we loved sitting out on the balcony looking out to sea. The hotel is nice and quiet so the only noise you hear is the sea and the local chickens!Our dinner was served on an open... more
