We have been going to this charming country hotel since several years now. The owners, management and staff are all very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The hotel consists of several buildings - the main buildings are old country houses with interesting history - located in an extensive and very well kept garden with many trees, flowers, a traditional swimming pool...

We spent three nights here and wish it had been longer so we could have visited other places in the Balaton Upland National Park, such as the Kis Basin, as there is so much to see and do if you enjoy cycling, nature and walking. Lake Balaton is pretty busy and so to find this charming country inn right in... More

When we first visited Kali Art Inn, we immediately fell in love with the idyllic garden, fantastic cuisine and friendly, enthusiastic people we met there. We knew that our upcoming wedding could not take place anywhere else…and we were right. Our wedding was wonderful in this amazing, intimate environment.

We had a great time at kali art inn, doing a yoga retreat in the wonderful studio upstairs of the main building. No doubt that we will come back, next time not only with the yoga mats but also with brushes and canvas, as the tranquil, friendly atmosphere and the stunning nature is a perfect inspiration for creative processes.

The breakfasts and dinners were a unique mix of gourmet and traditional Hungarian delight. The local (just down the street) wine was superb, service exemplary and so very friendly.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Kál Basin is one of the gems of the Balaton Uplands National Park. This region is serene in winter, radiant in spring, vibrant in summer and enchanting in autumn.Köveskál is situated in a wine-growing region, where many wine traders took up residence in the 17th and 18th centuries and built spacious houses there. The wine was transported as far as Vienna using large wagons, and it is said by the locals that their wine was more famous and more sought after than even the wine of Badacsony.The two main buildings and some of the annexes of the Káli Art Inn were built during that period. The main building changed hands several times, and for a short period even served as a casino for military officers. It was maintained in its original state, and today houses an office and two suites.The Inn and its restaurant have received numerous Hungarian and international accolades. We are especially proud that the Káli Art Inn was voted one of the 100 best hotels in Europe by The Sunday Times in 2010. ... more   less
