“A wonderful place you should visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2012

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.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2012

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

Room Tip: If your in the area enjoy some of the fine equestrain activities offered in the area i.e. Lipanzaner...

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.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2011

We went to La Contessa for a weekend with a special autumn package with half board.
The service is excellent, the location wonderful, the castle is clean and decorated with very good taste.
We had a nice big room for the three of us (my husband, my 11 year old son and myself).
We tried first the wellness area (at 3 p.m. Friday afternoon we were the only guest down there as others have not yet arrived though the hotel was fully booked for the weekend).
It was really nice and well-equipped with different saunas, steam bath etc. Due to the wonderful weather we could also use the outdoor swimming pool.
As to the half-board, the dinner was nice but the bakery for breakfast was not good at all.
All in all we had a wonderful time and could make a lot of excursions in the nearby.
I think a weekend is a bit too short for exploring everything around.

The service was excellent, everyone was nice and smiling. The furnitures, the lights, the rooms and the whole the building is beautiful and perfectly clean. The Bükk mountain is fabulous. Romantic place for honeymoon.
