This is a thermal bath which means that it smells. It's not the best smell in the world but it's natural and it's meant to be that way so complaining about it is pointless and ignorant! Moreover, people might think that it's supposed to be hotter as it's a hot spring but it's only around 27°C outside (32°C inside) which... More

The lake is beautiful and enjoyable also during winter time. If you choose to stay in the camping very close to the lake entrance you can enjoy a free batch in the same water at the exit edge of the camp :)

We have bathed here in the summer & winter - it's unique and beneficial.You shouldn't be too concerned about bathing in natural waters e.g.amongst lily pads. You can hire anything you need - book & buy remedial massages - truly great. Floating in the water is easy with many handrails and seats, or take a ring of your own. There's... More

I highly recommend the day pass with the spa. We spent the greater part of a day wandering around the thermal pools and enjoying the jacuzzi spa, it was a great experience, though there were no visible lifeguards outside, no major drawbacks though.

the water was warm and the best part was that you can hire a rubber tube for 600 forints and you get into deep water too without any fear

Nice but not as warm as I expected. It is very deep even in the indoor part, so you do need a floating device. You can rent one there, but you pay in cash inside, after crossing the long hall that leads to the pools and long after the lockers. We rented towels, but they only rent tiny ones. The... More

Although the smell of sulfur is a smell and not fragrance - the stuff is good for you. The facilities had been improved upon tremendously over the past 30+ years. The prices also reflect that and admission price is dovetailed with the time spent. Still it is healthful, unique and quite pleasant.

This is an interesting place to visit. Although it was cold out, swimming in the open air lake was quite pleasant. The space inside the spa is comfortable and there is plenty of room to lie back on a lounger by the large windows overlooking the lake.

The lake is unique in Europe and in the world. Spa building is finely renewed. Change rooms comfortable enough. Entrance fee fare. The only problem I have found - typic for us, hungarians - poor quality and expensive buffets...
