It is a wonderful feeling to be able to give a glowing recommendation to a 4* hotel that actually lives up to its star rating!
From the moment we saw the hotel, we knew that this was going to be something special and our instinctives proved to be right.
The private owners of this hotel, built three years ago, have spared no expense in their choice of design, decor, fittings and furniture. Top quality materials and fabrics abound through every room and the marble staircases give a feeling of warmth and luxury.
Add to this the high standard of cleanliness throughout the hotel, the beatiful vistas from most of the rooms and the communal areas, when added together they emphasise the "feel-good" factor that is often ignored by other hotels.
Although the wellness facilities were slighty on the small side than I would have wished, e.g. swimming pool and fitness room, it seemed to be more than adequate for the guests at the hotel.
The buffet-style restaurant served traditional Hungarian food to a high standard - perhaps it would be have nice to have another non-Hungarian dish as a option - the drinks were reasonably priced and the staff very helpful.
My report would not be complete without mentioning one of two areas where some improvement could be of benefit to the guests.
1. Free dressing gowns are provided but there are no hooks on the bathroom door on which to hang them.
2. Although the room was spotlessly clean, the room cleaners did not change used drinking glasses, disappointing when everything else was so good.
Finally, I would recommend this hotel for a stay of 2-4 days for couples and parents with young families. Older children may find the lack of recreational facilities more problematic.
A fine hotel of which Hungary can feel proud.
