The Hotel Tengerszem is located in a stunning location in an area with excellent wildlife sites. But, the hotel itself is in a very poor condition and needs total renovation. The shower rooms were dirty, some toilets leaked and there are no curtains on the windows. The staff were grumpy and did not make you feel welcome, everything was hassle! The food only average and boring although beer was good value. They seem to cater for wedding parties, the one whilst we were there finished at 4am with loud disco etc. Staying guests seem too much trouble!!
We only ate here, so I can comment on food and service. Not single one in the staff spoke English (which is quite surprising working in tourism) but we managed to comunicate in German. But they were friendly and organized. Food was not good. Most of the group left it. We ate something with sheep cheese, bacon and onion. But it had really strong, not friendly smell. It was something typical Hungarian. Probably other dishes they make are OK if they don't contain cheese. :)
Prety good overall. Had the Game Meat Stew dish and found it very good. My friends had the combination platter and found it average. The service was good and the price reasonable. The atmosphere however is very nice as well as the sorounding park. Recomend.
While we stayed at the hotel the restaurant was closed due to renovating. Nevertheless, we enjoyed our stay. The room was nice and clean and we particularly appreciated the view from our balcony. Not everyone in the staff speaks a good english, but everyone was really nice and we managed to understand each other.
We stayed here as part of small group in early September. The location, next to the cave, is excellent and so quiet and peaceful. The room was clean and comfortable and the bathroom was clean and well appointed. The restaurant was closed, so we had breakfast and dinner at a fantastic little B&B called Fogado az Oreg Malomhoz (Old Mill Inn) in Josvafo, which was a 15 minute walk down through the woods. The owners were very welcoming and friendly and the food was fantastic. We really enjoyed our stay here.
