I've been here several times a few years ago, but the last 4 years I was in abroad, so I've never had the chance, until yesterday, when we visited again this hotel for a week-end, just for one night. From the outside, from the road, the Club Hotel looks the same: nice, interesting, but a little bit neglected.
I don't know how, when, and I don't know what went wrong, but our stay was full with disappointments. This hotel was excellent, but now, the staff is just average, and they don't smile at all, we had to pay for the suite, before we even had the chance to get our things in it, the breakfast was just an average hungarian continental, with bread and some cheese and ham, but no water at all, and the orange-juice was terrible, donÍt talk about the "hot-meals". Ew.
The swimming pool is still better than average, thanks for the architect. But the inside yard was awful. The grass was parched by the sun, the walls crumble, and they are dirty all over.
The suite is OK, but it's not a Western-European standard. No mini-bar, no wifi, but at least everything's clean. But that's quite an expectation.
One thing was good: the meal. After we had a horrible lunch at the Csárda (omg, what happened over there?!), we had dinner here, and the waiter was very friendly, and our meal was fresh and OK.
Anyhow, this is the only hotel in the area, and when there is the showjumping and the horse-show, you can still have a room for a day or two, but that's it. It's a big disappointment, and I don't want to deal with it, such a nice place, such great opportunities, and it was so much better a few years ago.
I'm not sure in returning, but there are no other choises, and I'm so in love with Hortobagy, so I have to. But not with pleasure.
