I was so impressed with the Balneum that I bought a holiday cottage nearby. It is particularly great in spring and fall, where the combination of banya and thermal baths are at the best. However, even in summer the horizon pool against the lakeside setting is beatiful and one of my favourite hangout spots in the world. So few people know about this place, even in Hungary, that it is never too crowded and never patronised by the loud mouthed 'zombie' tourists of England and Germany drinking lager and generally being a pain. There is a certain kind of discerning tourist found here, which makes the place all the more enjoyable.
The hotel itself is lovely, particularly the cottages on the lakeshore. There is a decent breakfast here, although I find it too German for my tastes. The rooms are well appointed with plenty of wood, though the minibar is pretty bare (maybe a good thing). The hotel design is excellent and I couldn't recommend it more. The cafe by the pool, open in summer, where you can hang out in summer is amazingly relaxing. The restaurant is excellent, with great local dishes served with a slight international panache. I loved the local wines.
