Located in the west part of the Balaton highlands, not far from Kapolcs with its famous summer festival, the hotel enjoys one of the best reputations of all the properties in the Hunguest network.
There are several reasons for this as explained below, including it's unique location, excellent service, fine food, and range of entertainment and wellness facilities for both adults and children.
A key point is that this hotel is very family friendly, and there are lots of places of interest in and around Tapolca - including castles, boating opportunities, not to mention Balaton itself.
Convenient Therapeutic Cave
Below the hotel there is a ‘karst cave’ (pictured), it’s not only a beautiful sight, is also offers a special microclimate ideal for curing respiratory diseases. As mentioned its' direct connection to this underground grotto makes it unique in Europe, it's also very peaceful place, safely enclosed by a large park. It’s still very close to the city centre of Tapolca and so within walking distance of many local attractions.

Family Friendly Fun
For families with children the special kids buffet is a winner. For youngsters to work up an appetite the hotel's Pinochio Club offers qualified supervision while kids play with a multitude of games and toys.
This allows parents to take time for themselves, perhaps for an on-site massage, or beauty treatment in the ‘health farm’. Sports for children and other interesting things for them to do are organized by the friendly staff on a daily basis, also there are both indoor and outdoor children's pools.
The hotel is also a great place to use as a base for family days out. A trip to the city mill lake is an easy and pleasing option. A car trip to the Herend Porcelanium (Herendi Porcelángyár) is worth the approx. 30km drive.
Of course Lake Balaton is so close its easy to enjoy a summer holiday here.
