fine base for touring in Portuguese mountains

Posted Sep 28, 2017
Pros: Cleanliness and helpful staff
Cons: The dinner of pork sirloin was poor, served from a skewer walked through the dining room onto a cold plate the medallions of pork got cold very quick
Location: Belmonte has a castle but not open on a Monday so beware. Mountain drive excellent to 2000 metres or 6500 feet.
Excellent reception staff gave options for touring and sight-seeing in the mountains. Evening meal not quite so good but did not see many options as no obvious good restaurants in the immediate area. Plenty of choice for breakfast and rooms excellent with some with superb views to the mountainous countryside.

Excellent hotel

Posted Feb 28, 2016 on Hotels
We stayed two nights. The room was very comfortable with fast WiFi and a wonderful view over the valley and snow-capped mountains of Sierra Estrella range. The breakfast was great. Plenty of parking. The service was great. The hotel is located near Belmonte, but to visit it one need a car or a taxi to get there.

good Hotel excellent Location

This hotel was chosen as a stop on drive from the UK to our holiday in Portugal. The hotel location was superb and easy to find. The room was comfortable and the food in the restaurant very good. the service was first class. This area is on the edge of the Serra Estrella mountains and a very beautiful area to visit both in Summer and Winter. I would highly recommend this hotel to stay, either if passing through or staying for longer.

Beautiful Hotel

Posted Jun 5, 2013 on Hotels
While being a fairly old Hotel, it is very well kept and maintained. The flowers/ garderns are beautiful. The reception and hotel decor is quite bright and homely feeling. The views are phenominal. Rooms were spacious, clean, tidy and had a lovely balcony attached. Staff were friendly and helpful. I was surprised how few guests there were, but I suppose the hotel is a bit far out and perhaps not in season? There is a tennis court (which we used) and a swimming pool (which we also used) but was far too cold as it is not quite in season yet. A really wonderful experience. Slight negatives: Beds were a little too firm for my liking, and I found it a bit difficult to sleep. Heard someone from along the same floor getting up in the morning- was very noisy!

Easy to get to when you need a rest from driving but quiet with good views and food
