I Went to Szidonia for a 3 day long company getaway.
Very positive thing is that staff does not bother you at all (except for check-in and check-out).
Check-in took 2 minutes and I was on my way to find room which turned to be the size of my flat... or half of my flat, at least.
To find my room was another story though. There are 2 different wings, 4 different access routes and scatchy looking lift.
You can see that the manor house was completely refurbished but apparently some while ago. There are wet spots under the ceiling in the hallway, some dirty walls etc... You won't notice at first glance though.
As for staff, everyone was perfect and helpful EXCEPT for one night when me and 12 colleagues were drinking and spending a lot of money and restaurant staff told us they are closing the bar at 1.30am. No more drinks, no more money for the hotel. This has never happened to me anywhere else as a paying customer.
Cuisine in the restaurant was spotless (traditional goulash, very good, homey soups, BBQ in the garden, all perfect)! I can highly recommend wine tasting in their cellar, wonderful atmosphere, delicious wines and very skilled wine-dresser.
Garden and surroundings are simply marvellous! Wish I had more time to actually relax.
Would definitely love to come back with my better half!
