A pleasant and unique experience
A most unusual hotel in a remote location. From the time of our arrival to our departure our experience was a joy. The hotel must be almost unique in that it has been created from a long derelict fort. However it has been sympathetically converted and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. The restaurant was good with excellent friendly service from Joanne. Nearby is the walled town of Ciudad Rodrigo on the Spanish side and Almeida on the Portuguese side both worth visiting. Whilst the Parador in CR looks very pleasant it has a noisy road nearby and does not match the character of the Fort. If in the area definitely worth the visit.
