    Mrs Fattahi’s House

    This pleasing homestay is in Shibderaz village, a short stroll from the beach where turtles lay their eggs between April and July. Bedding is laid out in the lounge room in the evening, and the shared shower and squat toilet off the entrance hall get all the proper scrubbing. For more privacy, choose the room with private facilities in the courtyard.

    Shabhaye Talai – Golden Nights Beach Restaurant

    No language barrier at this quirky venture: it's run by Annelie, from Germany, and her husband, Ali Reza, who both speak fluent English and go to great lengths to help travellers. They've set up four rooms in two trailers behind their renowned restaurant. Rooms feel a tad boxy but are exceedingly neat and fit the bill if you're counting your rials.

    Mr Amini’s House

    Esmael Amini and his family welcome travellers into their attractive home in Tabl near the Harra Sea Forest and are great hosts. Bedding is laid out on the floor at night in one of the 10 spotless rooms that are arrayed around a courtyard. Shared facilities (squat and Western-style toilets) are in top nick and the homemade meals are delicious.

    Alvand 2

    Opened in early 2017, this impeccably maintained hotel has a flashy lobby and carpeted rooms that are far classier than you usually get for this price in Iran. The buffet breakfast is excellent. Another draw is the on-site cafeteria. It's off a busy roundabout north of the centre – there's a bit of street noise, but nothing to lose sleep over.

    Golden Beach Hotel

    Right on an appealing beach (with a women's section) about 15km southwest of Qeshm Town, this low-key but well-kept resort with a family atmosphere is a great place to chill out for a few days. The 56 rooms aren't fancy, but they're functional and have sea views, and renovations are under way. The restaurant serves simple Iranian food.

    Geopark Hotel

    Conveniently located near the centre and the jetty, this old favourite has been given a thorough makeover and now flaunts bright rooms with scrupulously clean bathrooms and excellent bedding, pleasing earth and beige tones, and an attached quality restaurant. Opt for a room with a sea view.
