Not up to the level most would expect from an exchange. Had a cabin that had 2 bdrms, 1 bath. All paneled in wood, but absolutely no privacy. Light from the other bedroom came though the cracks. Floors very noisy,
Noisy so anyobe who gets up to use the bathroom or get a drink wakes everyone up. Mini kitchen-no oven. Very small tv in living room. On the plus side a very nice outside patio, but we were here in November. Inside and outside pools(also not open)and tennis courts, a nearby stable with horses, and lots of walking trails. The club house does have a restaurant which seemed pricey to me. This resort is quite aways from the main road and from Budapest.
There are buses which will take you from the main road but it's a LONG walk. Shuttles can be arranged for pick up for about 7-10 euro. We took a taxi from Pest and it cost us 6,000 huf-about $19. The biggest issue is that your GPS may not be able to find it, and add ignage is totally inadequate. Don't even think about trying to find it in the dark. Really. Budsoest is a wonderful city. It's just that this place is not centrally located to enjoy it.

We recently had a one-week stay in a studio unit in the main building at Petnehazy. While the room can certainly not be described as luxurious, if you are looking for the right kind of getaway you may find this to be as charming as did we.

Pros:
- We loved the location in the Buda Hills outside of the city. Even though we spent much of our time in Budapest proper, returning in the evening to the quiet green surroundings was wonderful.
- The room offered a small but useful kitchen, and the resort also had a lovely restaurant with a wonderful European style breakfast buffet and very high quality dinners. That combination gives you tremendous flexibility for meals without having to travel away from the hotel.
- Travel - there is a bus stop just a short 10 minute walk away. From there it is an easy connection to get downtown and anywhere you need in Budapest using their super-well-marked bus, tram and metro system. We also enjoyed cutting through the woods along the well-marked hiking trails to go to a shopping area (with a Spar supermarket and pharmacy among other stores) making it a little bit of an adventure.
- Tours - the hotel-arranged tours cover a wide range of experiences, and even though we only did two (a Budapest tour and a trip up north to the Danube Bend area) we found them tremendously enjoyable and appropriately priced.
- Staff - very professional, and Susanna, who has strong English skills and can seemingly arrange just about anything, made the trip even smoother. We had a fright with a bad case of a stomach bug, and the front desk even arranged for a doctor's visit to the room, on a weekend day! Can you imagine that in the States?

Cons:
- The cabins seemed to offer a lot more room and privacy, and the downside of the studio room was hearing everything your neighbors were up to at all hours of the day or night. Luckily we were on the higher floor and never had any issues with pool area noise, and our neighbors weren't bad, but I can easily imagine that being a problem.
- If you don't mind sleeping with the deck door open, as we did, the room cools off nicely, but closed up the rooms were quite stuffy and had no fans, and I can see that being a problem in the summertime.

Room Tip: Try to get a cabin, but if you're in the main building request to be as far from the pool as possible if you want a quieter room.

Great place to stay. Not in the center. You definitely need a car to travel around. Nothing to do in the hotel except for a swimming pool and tennis court but very nice service. Surprisingly they changed our towels and took the garbage unlike other RCI club hotels. We liked it!

We stayed at Petnehazy for a week through a timeshare swap. We understood it was a remote location, and thankfully had the foresight to bring up a lot of groceries from our prior week's stay on the Pest side. We definitely did not understand the public transportation to/from the resort was so unreliable. Bus 63, which transfers to Tram 61 into the city, does not run on time and you could stand for 30-45 mins waiting. We therefore felt obligated to pay the shuttle fees into town (5000 Florints for one way; a taxi will get you there for around 3200+tip). It takes about 30 mins driving to get to from Buda Square.

The resort itself is on beautiful land, but had at least 2 weddings per weekend, so not exactly quiet or relaxing. Our room (231) was away from the main venue and noise, but it meant much more foot traffic, people, slower service in restaurant, etc... There is not a lot to do if you only stay at the resort. The swimming pool was not impressive, the tennis lessons were over 6000 Florints (for both court time and coach fee) and no well established hiking trails. While we wanted to soak in the nature and beauty, there is no real way to do that. Sitting on your balcony is lovely, but smoking is quite popular, you need to be willing to have cigarette smoke wafting from below and side. The property up the road (by the same name) is better set up for activities with horse riding and other things. We had a studio with a kitchenette and I don't believe anyone had ever cooked in it before, as it was missing the toaster and the coffee maker was new. We used it every day for breakfast and a couple dinners.

The restaurant is medium, in our view. If you watch the chefs that are located outside (their "kitchen" is on the pavement), you can view their prep work, cooking, and enthusiasm (or sometimes lack of it). Breakfast was cooked the day before (as we found out watching them), so thankfully we'd already brought our own. The service is slow, due to only one waiter being on service each night. BE CAREFUL to review your bill to see if service charges are added!! Sometimes it wasn't added in, sometimes 18% was added in. Also know that you'll be charged for TAP water, which I found ridiculous.

Wifi in the room was non-existent, but we were prepared for that. It's fine in the lobby, just slow.

This might be a nice place for some, but it wasn't to our taste at all. We won't return. We are neither luxury travelers or picky; we have traveled through Europe many times, Turkey, India, etc... We understand this is a developing country, but compared to the service and stay we had in the week prior, there are plenty of other options to choose from.

We stayed at Petnehazy Club Hotel through a friend's RCI timeshare. The previous TA reviews are spot on about the wi fi being nonexistent in the room/cabin and spotty in the lobby. Expect a cabin in the woods, and be sure to BYOT - bring your own toiletries.

For transport to and from town, we took the 10 minute walk to bus 63 into tram 61 to town. We hired the shuttle service from the airport to the hotel and back, and this saved us from having to schlep luggage to the bus stop and through the tram system. The service was adequate, and the pool/spa area is average and filled with screaming children most of the time.
