We were planning to stay in the countryside In the Zala region and found this lovely estate. The scenery is charming and well kept. You can immediately notice that they work hard to make the premises delightful. The dinner was well prepared and also had Hungarian dishes, which were not too spicy. The wines we tried were not only fine, but also served as they should be- the white ones were chilled and the red ones at a room temperature - congratulations to the maker Cezar as well). The personnel is trying their best with the language barriers and you can communicate in English or in German. The rooms have everything a 4 star hotel should have - maybe only slippers in the room would be recommended. The furniture is modern, but natural materials were used, which gives a cozy atmosphere. The view to anywhere from the hotel is a rest for sore eyes, the pools have heated water, the access to the wellness is easy and their is a mini golf area as well as a beautiful lawn connecting the two Batthyany hotels.
We spent 5 days in Zalacsány to taste golf there. We arrive in the late afternoon and we found our hotel Batthyány Kúria – Manson closed. The gate to the park closed by heavy chain. Nearby in the Batthyány Castle staff mentioned some accident and they offered a very nice superior room for us, unpleasantly in the second floor without a lift. The Castle was very nice, look as a newly renovated. Next day after the first round of golf we visited the already open Batthyány Kúria and our decision was simple – to move there.
Kúria in comparison with the Castle looks as a chateau farmhouse. Our room was in the grand floor, spacious, divided in three rooms –bedroom, living room and space with private Jacuzzi. A small and charming restaurant with great Hungarian food, mostly for meat lovers. Lovely bar with terrace, overlooking carefully maintained park. Really pleasant staff added value to this very nice place, situated only few minutes from the Zala Springs golf and on the edge of small town Zalacsány.
Hotel is situated in small village, spacious and clean room, very friendly staff, breakfast and dinner in buffet style, excellent swimming pool with clean lawn including trees to relax. Balaton and Zalaegerszeg nearby. Parking place in front of hotel.
We spent a great weekend at the Kuria. The interior is modern and slightly elegant. Our room was well equipped. (Bath gown, towels, hair dryer, body lotion, mini bar, air condition...etc.) The wellness is in the Manor, which is a different building. You have to take a walk through a spectacular park. Unfortunately the weather was rainy-windy, so we couldn't enjoy it.
The wellness is a bit small if everyone like to visit it during bad weather. But in the low season there aren't many guests. It has a pool (bit worn, but still very good), a hot tub and a large sauna. The sauna ritual program is included.
The dining place of a the Kuria is small. But the food is perfectly made. We loved it. (The half board not included drinks.) The breakfast is repetitive and not so various, but still tasty at all.
The staff were caring and so kind, that you really feel welcome there.
In the nearby you can find a professional golf course, a spectacular fishing pond, Héviz is about 10km from there. And Keszthely (Lake Balaton) is about 15km.
I can recommend it for couples, and those who want a silent rest during the holiday.
Excellent! We really enjoyed our stay.... Great place, nice and clean room, kind stuff, tasty food. Nothing to complain! Realy nice place and we are looking forward to come back with our friends in november
