Over priced for hotel past its prime.
Stayed here one night during our trip to Douro Valley. Location is right on the river and view are decent. Room are clean but dated. Didn’t receive the 5 stars experience you would expected at this price point. Fairly disappointing stay. Food at the restaurant was below average. Wouldn’t recommend.

Oasis in a Storm
First, I must say that this review is tempered by the fact that it rained the entire time we were in Portugal and the Douro River was not only flooding, but flooding into the Hotel. The Vintage House is well located in the heart of the Douro Valley surrounded by Quintas making both Port and dry wines. While the town of Pinhao is nothing to write home about, the hotel itself is lovely with beautiful gardens a lovely pool and huge balconies overlooking the river. Unfortunately due to the monsoon we could not use any of them. The rooms are well appointed and designed, and while the hotel is a bit awkward in that it stretches across multiple buildings, it is easy to navigate once you get used to it. Housekeeping was efficient and the rooms were immaculate. Where the Vintage House fell was in terms of service. There were some really annoying things that did not have to happen. First, the hotel is right next to the train station, but it is difficult to find the entrance that is actually right on the platform. Thus a 5 euro cab ride to go three blocks. Simply providing directions upon booking could fix this. Also, the hotel makes one sign out umbrellas with the threat of a 50 euro charge if they are not returned. What 5 star hotel does not provide umbrellas? At breakfast, there is a buffet, but for some reason (and they make this very clear) you have to pay additional for eggs. Finally there were just 3 rooms booked when we were there. How about an upgrade?
