“A pleasant property with friendly owners”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

We drove to Hullam Villa guided by our GPS. It is along a very narrow lane, but when we found it, we were very happy. The owners offer locked free parking and are extremely friendly and helpful. Our room had a small balcony with table and chairs and a glimpse of the lake. It was furnished simply but was spotless and everything worked. As it was quite hot when we were there, the swimming pool was a real bonus. Beware - they don’t offer towels for the pool, but they did let us have a couple of small towels to use. Breakfast was pleasant but not overwhelming.

The little town is a typical holiday place with lots of fairly ordinary restaurants a couple of minutes’ walk from the B&B. The town is maybe not the prettiest location on Lake Balaton, but we found it very enjoyable.

Stayed August 2012, traveled as a couple

I concur with the other reviews here: this is a very nice place to stay. Just a few things to add:
- We arrived late and hungry and our host made excellent toasted sandwiches for the entire group even thought the kitchen was probably long closed by then. (Two rounds, no less.)
- The place has a great wine list, all of it very reasonably priced. Sadly, this is not generally the case in Hungary so we brought our own wine and then regretted it as soon as we saw what was available in house.
- The breakfast was included and it was very generous (basically, all you can eat - except that the quality is much higher than what one would associate with a buffet breakfast). My wife did not want to come down for breakfast, so the hosts repeatedly offered to bring breakfast to our room or prepare something "for the road".
- This place is ideal for those touring the Balaton area by bike.
The entire place seems brand new and it was furnished and designed very tastefully and is kept spotlessly clean. One caveat: it may be better suited for young couples or groups of friends, rather than families with kids: I doubt kids would appreciate the nice amenities (or the wine list) and so you might be better off just renting an entire villa right on the beach. Other than that though, this is a great choice for your Balaton vacation.

We were there in a family room. Hotel is very nice and clean, owned by nice couple who were excellent hosts. Hotel location is fantastic, close to the beach and to the centre of the village but on a very quiet place. Swimming pool has a plastic cover which keeps the water very clean and warm and whole area around swimming pool is in the same shape. Each morning the owner cleans the bottom with some water vacuum cleaner.
If we have to give some small objection we can put in on breakfast. It was quite OK and tasty but if you are there for a week or more it is a bit droningly... The best parts are delicious rolls which we called ''the taste of childhood''.
Hotel has a nice open parking and you neither can go outside the building nor to come in without your room key which opens the entrance gate.
You can rent bikes at the place and to drive true fantastic bicycles roads all around the lake.
At the end a few words about the owners / young couple of the owners is there from early morning to late evening and they will help you for any of your needs, to explain you about the lake and surrounded area, where to go and what to visit, they will also find the dentist on Sunday on a national holiday (it was my case).
We never were on vacation on such a place where one really feels that is welcome and like at home. We will certainly come again there even if we are not impressed with Balaton lake it selves.

We have spend the last 4 days of our summer holiday at Hullam Villa. We wish we could stay more there. It is a beautiful, quiet place. It is clean, the breakfast was more than good, the staff very friendly. You have there everything what your heart wish. In one word: PERFECT!! Respect for the owners, they are doing good job and you can see they really enjoy to run their B&B.
Do not hesitate to spend your holiday at the Hullam Villa and especially don’t miss the “ Krumpli pörkölt” (see picture) on Thursday evening!
K&G thank you and we hope to see each other again!

Hullam villa is really nice place to stay. The hosts were really helpful and nice. We felt really at home. The lake is just 5 min walk away. There are restaurants close by as well. (try steak house just awesome) While staying at hullam villa try the sauna and soak up the sun by the pool. for the ultimate relaxation book yourself a body or back massage.. Its not expensive and it is worth it!!
The rooms are plain and nothing fussy but clean and fresh..Rooms have a balcony with table and chairs were you can relax and have a drink as well.
breakfast was not bad.It was continental with bio cereals and fresh bread and cold cuts. Pity there were no pastries like croissants to accompany the jam.
On the whole it was a very pleasant stay and will definelty go back to this bed and breakfast if we go to balaton lake again.

I travelled a lot in Hungary and had some bad experience with hosts who were not really customer-oriented. This time I searched an average-priced accommodation south of Keszthely for one night in low season for my family (my wife, me and our one-year old child). We chose Hullam villa because of its location but overall because of its internet recommendations from other guests. We arrived in the evening, our child was very tired and we did not have dinner yet. As they don’t offer warm dinner and we wanted to have some warm food, they organized that pizza was brought to the B&B where we could have it on the terrace. They were fully engaged to do everything to our satisfaction, I felt like being at home. Our child is quite lively and very often you do not feel good in some hotels when she is loudy –here, at contrary, this was no problem at all. They were comprehensive and very patient.
The lady speaks German, Hungarian, the lord Hungarian and English. So there was no communication problem at all.
We ordered the room with baby bed and my mails for confirmation of availability were answered always very soon. Of course when we arrived, everything was already prepared.
We used wifi internet in the room which is very comfortable. As far as I could see, all rooms offer private balcony where you can sit outside. Full range of German TV programs is offered. We even had view to lake Balaton. The breakfast was simple but excellent quality – home-made biological jar, good coffee, fresh bread, boiled egg on request, etc. They even offered biologically produced apple juice. In the morning, the son and his wife (or daughter and husband?) prepared the breakfast. They were the same handsome as their parents. A huge parking is offered, however the street to the hostel is really small (Nyarfa utca), don’t miss it and don’t be afraid! It is just important to enter directly the Nyarfa utca from the main street Rakoczi utca. Do not go to Balaton utca and then turn right into Nyarfa utca. If you have a big car, this is quite difficult!
For us this hostel was the perfect choice – overall because of the hospitality of the owners – a perfectly run family hostel. Location of the hostal is also very centric - within 5 minutes walking distance you arrive to the supermarkets and to the lake.
I fully recommend this to everybody, top rating from my side!
