“romantic hideaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

The rooms are tastefully designed, in line with the local tradition. They are clean and comfortable. The food is fresh and delicious. We asked for vegetarian gluten fee option and it was not a problem at all. The staff is very friendly and helpful all time. Great stay, we would definitely go back.

What a great escape from the city! We loved our cozy room and the wonderful food. We borrowed the bicycles and took a tour of the Hungarian countryside. We happened to be there for a wine tasting dinner that was very nice. The food was countryside Hungarian. The property has beautiful gardens and lots of greenery. Our only complaint was the bed - very firm. Everything else was wonderful.

We had a wonderful time at Kali Art Inn. Ildikó , Csaba and the staff were lovely to us and made us feel so welcome and pampered. We had a lovely romantic suite in the old Barn. We asked our hosts to recommend a place for horseriding and they made a reservation for us. The house and grounds are beautiful and peaceful I will try to stay there again if I am in Balaton area.

Room Tip: The Mirror room is the most romantic.....

I had the privilege of staying at the Kali-Art Inn this summer, on the back of a recommendation from a boutique hotel in Budapest called the Brody House (also amaze-balls!!) The Kali Art Inn is a breath of fresh air away from Budapest and it only takes an hour and a half to drive there from the heart of the city! It is on the northern shore of Lake Balaton and is surrounded by rolling hills and tranquil country lanes that you can explore either on a bike or on foot! The accommodation was sensational. We stayed in the White Room which was on the upper floor of the barn conversion, it was presented in a vintage decor and had plenty of room, along with a huge bath as well.

We chose to have dinner there on the first night which was a five course delight consisting of locally sourced produce along with some great local wine as well! The restaurant has seating outside and this was especially nice as you could watch the sunset whilst taking in the natural beauty of the whole place...Breakfast was also served here and we were always left with plenty of choice! The Inn has a lovely private pool/lake with beautiful wooden decking and a few hammocks in the gardens as well! An ideal place for an afternoon read and some fresh fruit from the garden :-) There were some bikes available for us to use, and I can highly recommend going on a circular tour around gorgeous flat scenery surrounding the Inn, stopping through the local villages and then onto the Lake itself and along the shores and beaches for an Ice-Cream...

We also chose to have dinner at a lovely restaurant which is on the lane directly opposite the entrance to the Inn...Just walk up the lane and on your right you will see the restaurant garden...also a really lovely place to sit and have a glass of wine!

The service at the Kali-Art Inn was phenomenal, I cannot complement this place enough and I can certainly recommend this place to anybody looking for a breathtaking, peaceful and enlightening stay just outside of Budapest!

Kali Art Inn is situated in small buildings in a beautiful garden with pool, with a small lake, relaxing area and childre playground and also a little herb garden. Their restaurant has a big shady terrace from where you can see kids playing a big green grass and flowers. They have a great selection of rooms and appartments, you can choose for family stay and also for romantic escape. The most romantic is the spacious white room, where you can even enjoy a built in corner bath. You can also taste their good selection of wines and worth to try the evening menus.

We highly recommended this charming inn. The food and wine is delicious. As is the homemade lemonade!! Staff v helpful,rooms charming although i would go for a bigger one next time. 2 pools make a difference especially if you want peace and quiet and like swiming with frogs etc Explore the are, great rides and charming small sleepy villages to explore. Its a shame boating not more accessible but im sure with more warning they will organize.

Room Tip: Beds can be v firm. cottages are great for families

Dear Peter!
Thanks for the kind recommendation! I hope that next time you visit us with his family!
You can ask for a higher room type!Unfortunately, at that time was occupied in contact with each boat, but I hope that next time you can arrange cruise the lake!
There are new bikes, including a tandem bike!
Yours sincerely:IldikóD.

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
