Wonderful building, full of character with clean, comfortable rooms in old world style. Rather grand really! Staff were all friendly and welcoming. Grounds are lovely too. Sadly we could not try the restaurant as it was replaced - due to a National Holiday - by an adequate but unexciting buffet. House reds were excellent though, as was breakfast.

I went to their restaurant and had a great time tasting many unique Hungarian dishes and drinks - including a great variety of palinka. The workers were very courteous as well, ensuring a swift replacement of all dishes. Will definitely comme back.

We had celebrated with our friend's "biggest day" of the narrow 70 people. We have enjoyed common with the wellness and restaurant delights. Both two pool had great panorama. For more complete experience they had various saunas and steam rooms as well as the flavor room.

I stayed here with my sister and Mom. The location was convenient as the relatives we were visiting lived in a small town nearby. Our stay was surprisingly quite pleasant. We were given rooms directly across from each other making it very convenient to visit each other's rooms which we did frequently. It also worked well because my sister and...

Staff speaks NO ENGLISH whatsoever. Very difficult to communicate even for the most basic of things. If you're there for a hunting trip, be advised, you are unlikely to get your trophies as they're extraordionarily inept at dealing with the paper work required to bring it back to the US.

We have stayed in Fried Castle Hotel in August 2012. The Castle is very beautiful with a large park. The staffs are professional and always ready to help us in everything. Our room is very comfortable, the meals are tasty. We will come back next year.

We are not picky travelers; usually a comfort of a 4 start hotel is sufficient for us. However our stay at Fried Castle was highly unsatisfactory. There’s no AC, so we had to sleep with our windows open. Unfortunately, that meant dealing with the constant noise of dog barking at night and what appears to be a nearby sawmill at...

The Fried Castle Hotel**** and Restaurant has won many awards, among them the Hotel of the Year and the Most Beautiful Hotel of the Year titles. The hotel also received the Hungarian Tourism Quality Award 2014 and the classification 2Q, as the recognition of the ,,European Hospitality Quality" rating system. The Fried Castle Hotel**** and Restaurant has grown into a real hotel complex thanks to the French Park, the Castle building, the Wing Lily, the Hunter's Lodge, the Wellness & Fitness Centre and the own vineyard. In the own Winery of the Hotel, guests can taste the castle wines and the famous Hungarian spirit, the ,,palinka", which are served directly from barrels with traditional wine snacks. We also organize grill parties on our Panorama Wine Terrace. The Wellness & Fitness Centre offers several facilities and services during opening hours.

“Ask for room in main castle building.”

“If you're traveling with friends or require two rooms for any reason, ask for rooms 70 and 71 - they're great for easy visits.”

“The old building (the castle) is very pretty but the rooms there have really awful smell so you'd be better off staying in the new addition, though it is not at all charming.”

“Confirm the price of your room in advance. Agree to the terms in writing before paying when you check-in. Try to find hotels owned by locals.”
