If you are going to Kesthely in Summer then book somewhere in advance as hordes of sun seekers head to this lakeside beach resort. In winter, you'll have no problem. I walked around the town until after a while an old man with a bicycle offered me a room. He took me to a place called Museum Gueshouse which he ran with his wife. It was grand and comfortable. he charged me 7500HUF per night but i guessed he charged a lot more in peak season.
Camping Castrum is a very nice camping. It´s situated at only 300 meters from the Balaton and at 1 km from the city centre.
There are two tenniscourts and a large swimming pool to be used only by the guests at the camping. There is a good shop where you can by all the necessary food you need and all the places are well devided and all have shade.
The best this at this camping is the restaurant. Here you can eat fabulously. Especially the Hungarian food is very good. And everything is very cheap.
We arrived in Keszthely on Saturday, in the main season. We wanted to take a room for just one night. And we were close to the beach. So, it was not that easy to find an accommodation.
But we were lucky when we asked at Karin Haus. It's a private accommodation of a German/Hungarian family. More informations you can find if you visit the LINK...
This was a great place to stay. A German-Hungarian family run guesthouse with rooms and apartments to rent with breakfast if required. For exact costs see the website below but a double room is around 32 Euros (16 Euros per person), a good breakfast with bread, hams, jam, yoghurt, coffee and fruit juice is 3 Euros extra per person. In the main season as in most of the area, unless you are lucky and there is a space between people checking in and out (which I was!!) a room is not availabe for less than 3 nights.
There is a pool, barbecue area, mosquito netting, swing chairs and sunloungers. The owners are very friendly.
Out of season offers include transport to the thermal lake in Heviz and 7 nights for the price of 6.
