“The best stay ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012 via mobile

We stayed here with family for 5 days and had two rooms. The rooms were amazing and large, beds are comfy and the sauna in the room was cool:) the restaurant is fab, huge choice of food. Cocktails are just simply one of the best, especially the piña colada! We had a lot of massage treatments, and they were amazing and sooooo relaxing. Swimming pools are good too. The only thing is, it is difficult to get there if u have no car. But will be back for sure! Thanks guys

I am almost sure about that your stay at this hotel will give you an unforgettable experience.
All of these happened with me already!
Not because purely of the hotel’s finesse and its ancient walls are impressing but also the environs of the castle. You will find yourself in the middle of a green forest. The hotel is in a smaller mountain village and it is perfect place for trekking or Nordic walking, bicycling on the fresh air.
Kitchen is based on both, domestic and international cooking, so you can find light salad dishes from the menu or trying some hearty and country style dishes.
Eg. Grilled deer steak with forest berries accompanied by shredded potato...real good!
Or fresh smoked trout fillet right from the creek which is running close by the castle.
The wellness area could be bigger by some square meters although and luckily not all the guest going for swimming or for a massage at the same time.
The staff is committed and professionally servicing all guests.

Room Tip: Rooms are in good condition. Smaller windows in the attic!

The hotel is one of the best 4 stars hotels in Hungary I've ever been. I ave spent beautiful 3 days in this elegant, but friendly place. I felt myself like a princess as the waiters with white gloves served the champagne and coctails. The environment is simply beautiful: in the great park you can enjhoy the panorama with the Bük hills. The castle is newly renovated. The furniture remind you of the old times, the grandious chandeliers made of Swarowsky crystals.
The meals are plentiful and nice.
I can sincerely advice you to visit and see this place.

We just spent a long weekend in this hotel. Despite of the promising ratings we found out that the sport facilities doesn't exist and the pool is not maintained. Also the food as the drinks as well were average. The staff was kind but unprofessional. The building supposed to be renewed as is written on the front side on 2011 but can be seen all over finishing mistakes: on the stairs and in the inside pool as well. Is petty because the castle is in a beautiful are of forests but for 4 stars has to be more oferred today and for the price asked at least. The parking of the guests should be included in the price and not to be paid an extra charge for that.

We stayed in late April could not have been more pleased, the staff and building are great.

Location is perfect for exploring surrounding areas and just as perfect if your plans are to sit and relax.

My morning run through the countryside was one of my most enjoyable during our whole trip to Hungary

If you would like to get out of the normal tourist areas and enjoy some real quality Hungarian countryside this is your place

Could not reccomend it more

We were there over holiday and had group buffet in event center with music that was enjoyable but food was typically hearty Hungarian fare. They have indoor and outdoor pools that are beautiful. Helpful staff on the pool bar has not masteered American style cocktails so go to beer (Dreher is excellent) and avoid the Miami Vice Tea. We didn't partake in spa "things" but facility looked great. We hit a warm time in early May so lack of air conditioning was a challenge but windows opened and soft breeze cooled us down.

We went to La Contessa for a summer weekend and spent 3 lovely days there. Unfortunately there were only attic rooms available and this kind of room was not a good choice. It was a bit warm, and had only a very small window. Foods, vines were fine, and the personnel helpful. Last evening we gave tip for the headwaiter, who was very kind all the time, but next morning he was not so helpful as usual, maybe the tip was not enough for him or he had just hangover. If you wish to spend a weekend like a princess/prince, choose this place but avoid attic rooms.

Room Tip: Avoid attic rooms and choose rooms on the first floor. Superior rooms have a private sauna.
