We wanted to spend a relaxing 2 nights with my wife. We were very pleasantly surprised! Be sure to pick the jacuzzi equipped room for a romantic experience! The spa is big enough and very well maintained we loved it. The room was amazing, clean and big enough. The view from the 3rd floor was amazing. The food typical in the area but it's all you can eat and you can try many things. It's also very good for people on special diets like me (lactose intolerance). The masseuse is doing a fantastic job as well. Overall we over it and we will be back in the summer with the kids. It will not be so quiet but I hope it will be great.

Note: this hotel is very child friendly, with a large play room, kitchen for parents with small babies, a gym etc. simply perfect

Stayed: November 2016, traveled as a couple

We spent 3 nights in the hotel I booked in advance not to pay attention to the ads: family friendly...I felt lucky it was September already so kids were to age 5-6 and under, but so many... Mothers, fathers, kids, just a really few childless couple. Luckily we are good sleepers and probably the hotel is soundproof. Hidden place behind the camping, very nice carpark and garden, well maintained, clean. One outside pool -cold, and one smaller to children, 3 inner pools to adults and children plus a Jacuzzi, saunas, salt room, etc. Everything is nice and clean. Restaurant closes at 10 am, then 9 pm, and unfortunately if we go there half an hour before closing time, the stuffs are not too happy. They are very polite BTW but less helpful that time, do not replace finished foods and drinks and they want to empty our table in every 2nd minutes...First evening I asked anything vegetarian what is not sides(chips and rice) and was baked cheese for me. Following days luckily always were at least 2-3 veggie food. We had an afternoon coffee/tee in the price but it is not served in the garden, only in the lounge. As I am a smoker, it did not fit with me so I left it. Room was spacious, but when I asked to open another bed it was in the way of the terrace door, so all 4 days we could not use the terrace. Also because the lake is close, if terrace door is open, easily come in some mosquitoes...
There are some soft drinks with the breakfast but nothing is with the dinner only for extra cost. Stuffs are very polite, reception was always helpful, when we extended our stay and wanted to be in the same room, they made it possible. Pools (outside as well) close at 9pm, and to be honest after 9 the life has stopped all the time. Nothing was open, no people around, like in a college:)
Anyway we spent most of our times outside, in the near cities, and when we have been in the hotel, it was comfortable, modern, clean and really 4 star.
However I heard other couples to talk about this 'nursery hotel', so I can recommend to those who are not bothered by lots of children, and of course to families. Price is really good in this area and we can choose different wellness packages for less.

We have spent in this hotel 8 nights with my family ( wife and 2 yo daughter). Overall everything was good.
Pluses:
- inside pools and wellness, warm water in pools for kids
- friendly personel
- free parking
- free small bads for kids
- nice garden
- children kitchen that is on every floor
- bike rent inside of hotel
- play room inside of hotel


small but relevant Minuses that could be changed towards customers positive feedback:
- weak and not stable wifi
- a lot of strict rules withouth exception, not really customer oriented ( our example: our kid was going to sleep and we wanted to buy pizza at the restaurant downstairs and eat it in the room on a balcony while kid is sleeping, and we received negative respond, prohibited said the waiter, with no exception. So I had to get my kid to sleep and ride for some hamburgers outside of hotel...and there is other rule that u cannot eat in the room :) , but u could order breakfast in it...funny right? :)
- during our stay bad linen was not changed, or it was changed but excluding bad sheet
- ventilation in the bathroom is not working efficiently, so everything you leave in there stays wet + after some time there appears smell because of humidity and bad ventilation
- in the children kitchen that is on every floor -there is no paper towels, so if you wash anything - you must bring it with you ,all the equipment is pretty old
- in the room everything is not really equipped for small kids safety:- door could be opened easily by children, - all the drawers with small items ( pen ) have no locker on it
- in the hotel halls there is no locker on stairs so kids will not fall down the stairs
- good to have outside pool for kids water to be warmed sometimes when it is sunny already in the morning but the water is still cold
After all this I would still recommend this hotel to my friends and hope that with time everything will be changing only for the best.

It was a challenge to find a hotel in Hungary that is child-friendly (for a seven year old grand daughter) and not boring to grand parents. Encouraged by clients' reviews found on Tripadvisor, the Wellness Hotel Katalin, Gyenesdiás, was chosen. Reservation was made early February 2016 and still the original request for a two-roomed accommodation for a 10-day duration could only be met partially. A more modest room was offered for a duration of four days, but still it was satisfactory.
Throughout our stay, politeness and efficiency of staff was remarkable and we benefitted from sustained good and friendly services over 1o days.
Cleaning, change of towels, linen, were all done on-time and to satisfaction.
Fitness facilities are basic. The room is equipped with a bit outmoded machines but they were in satisfactory working order.
The pools, both internal and external, the jacuzzi were clean, sunbeds and shades were provided.
Safe and free parking was made available.
The high-quality and vast choice of food in the restaurant, both for breakfast and dinner, should be mentioned and it was maintained throughout the entire duration of time. The kitchen staff and service personnel did an outstanding job.
The hotel is recognized for its wonderful and well-kept gardens, lawns and the great variety of flowers. We can subscribe to these views.
Finally, carefully selected and advertised and interesting programmes for children and adults for weekdays made the vacation even more interesting.
On the less positive side only a few things can be mentioned: the rooms (and also bathrooms) appeared to have lacked shelves to store minor things. The drinks in the restaurant are overpriced. The hotel should consider offering concierge and bell-captain services to guests that would help the hotel-guests moving-in and leaving with a little bit of help. A more professional trolley would also help to move luggage. These are not extra demands towards a four+ star hotel.
Keep up the good management. And you future guests, make your reservation well ahead of time (for summer period at least), possible 8-10 months ahead to ensure that you get the room(s) desired.
