I had a wonderful time at the resort especially the thermal pool and the room was excellent with a outdoor seating. The staff was very friendly and very helpful in deciding what kind of treatment I would like.(not included)

The hotel is simple but clean and has everything needed for sleeping. It has a connection to the wellness part that is really great with several different sauna's and a thermal source bad. Staff is friendly and accurate and if you like wellness you really should consider to stay here 2 or three days. Breakfast is not very special but... More

The reviews before mine seem fairly old and outdated, so I thought I should add my feedback. The hotel was in nice condition, rooms were up to date and comfortable, nice common areas with free tea etc. I had no issues with loud people in the hotel or spa area. I was visiting family in NL but wanted a chance... More

We spend a long spa weekend break here mid may. The spa is very good, even when busy it does not feel crowded. the thermal bad is nice it being partly outside and the high salt levels makes you almost flood. The spa is very nice with a good pool, turkish bath and several sauna options. The hotel is good,... More

The hotel portion of the Fontana spa resort is practical and pleasant. It is a bit institutional with few frills, ordinary dishes, smallish rooms, plain, functional carpets etc. but very comfortable and relaxed. It was easy to like it and to feel at home. The breakfast was excellent; the service was very good; the fireplaces here and there were delicious.... More

So nice. We love this resort, the spa, the thermal bad, the sauna, the garden, the restaurant. Just go to this nice resort and relax. Even the little village is nice. And theres a nice restaurant a few kilometers from Fontana. I the German place Bunde. Wiemanshoff, go there for the best shnitzels ever.

The spa/wellness facilities are divided up into three areas. Firstly a thermal pool with pleasant gardens and some associated rooms for relaxing. This was pleasant enough, but a little busy for my taste and the changing rooms were rather basic. Swimming costumes are obligatory in this area. Secondly, the Sauna plane. This consisted of an indoor area with a large... More

This could easily be a much better spa resort with some upgrading of the rooms and with more staff making sure the guests behave themselves! First, the facilities: definitely not up to a 4 star standard. The rooms and furnishings are a bit tired looking. The rooms are too small for 2 people. The double bed fits in the room... More

Hotel has an attached spa and the first thing you notice when arriving is how many people are wandering around in dressing gowns - felt a bit odd when staying for a business trip. The staff are friendly and attentive and the rooms adequate. The food available is generally good. Would recommend for a spa trip and very accessible for... More
