The visitors will find a variety of accommodations, restaurants and eating places in and outside of Szilvásvárad, and in the woods around the town. Szilvásvárad is full of restaurants and bistros. Vegetarians will find their favourite places just as easily as those who would rather eat game or trout. 


The Villa Negra guesthouse, for example, is located in close vicinity of Szilvásvárad, down in the Szalajka Valley. It has nine double rooms, within a reach from the Veil Waterfall. The park features old pine trees and its proximity to nature provides undisturbed leisure for the guests of the forest guesthouse. The restaurant of the guesthouse offers a buffet breakfast, and the specialities of Szilvásvárad, including fish and game dishes.

The Forestry Apartment (Erdészeti Apartman) is on the road to the Szalajka Valley on the edge of Szilvásvárad. With just two rooms, this accommodation mainly suited for families or a group of friends. The house has outdoor cooking facilities in the closed garden.

It consists of two flats, one with two 4-bed rooms and the other with two double rooms. Both have a nicely renovated bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen.

The gingerbread house located in Hármaskút offers perfect accommodation for 4 persons. This forest lodge has a fully equipped kitchen and a bathroom. The house is heated by a fireplace and has a television too. The house is situated on a tourist trail, near the National Blue Trail.
