With my wife we were here for two times and we do recommend it.
We spent our honeymoon here last year and 5 days in this year.
Internet: free wifi but not so fast.
Mobile coverage is very rarely because this is in middle of the hills.
Room are clean. Not all rooms has balcony. If you prefer balcony you must tell it when you book the hotel.
There are two types of rooms: wooden and normal brick. If you are a not good sleeper then choose the brick one because the wooden rooms are not very insulated. Wooden rooms are very romantic. Brick rooms are very quiet.
Best rooms are number 140-143.
What to do: you can book bicycles, there is chariot. And hiking in the hills...a lot. Most of the hiking tracks goes across of this hotel territory. Visit the city of Zebegeny. You can buy maps at the reception.
For the children the hotel has a small playground in the front garden.
Food: not expect fresh style food. They give you traditional Hungarian country side dishes. The foods made by wild animals like boar, deer, roe, etc. I liked it very much. Unfortunately the vegetarian menu is very poor so you must eat meat.
But for the dinner the quantity of the food is a lot.
Breakfast: all you can eat (open food/drink) from 8:00 AM till 10:00 AM.
Wellness: they a small wellness area inside the hotel. And there is an open air 25 meter pool outside with deckchairs and sun umbrellas.
Staff: they are so nice and helpful. But maybe not everybody speaks English so ask help the reception in such a case.
This hotel recommended for such persons whom like nature very much with a pinch of luxury.
Nota bene!!! Officially this hotel is a 4 stars one but maybe it is not the equivalent level what you experienced in a Western European 4 starts hotel.
If you do not like flies/mosquitoes do not be afraid. There are not many in the Hotel because there are a lot of swallows living in the roof. They fly around the hotel all the time (spring and summer time) and catch these insects. Also you can have nice birdsong in the daylight. Nighttime they are sleeping in their nest. You can check them above the windows and in the roof.
Summary: It is close to the nature.
