Beautifully restored vintage hotel

4 out of 5
by from Sydney
Posted Sep 29, 2016
Pros: Beautiful location, and 5 star service
Cons: A bit of atmosphere with music in the bar and dinner would add a lot to the experience there
This place had fantastic service, and was located right on the water providing amazing views and vistas. The welcome port was a lovely touch. The service in the bar and restaurant was impeccable, and the food was delicious. Breakfast also had a really great spread, including sparkling wine. Our room was well styled, definitely vintage (as expected!) however the air con was very noisy, so we had to turn it down which made it a little uncomfortable when sleeping. The shower was also difficult to keep in one place for tall people, so had to continually adjust and it made quite a mess of the bathroom. Would recommend for older travellers, as we felt like the demographic was a bit older than ourselves.

The pictures in the website do not do justice to the beauty of this hotel. It was removated few months ago and it is a lovely place . Pinhao is the best area of the valley. This hotel is right in the town. The views are just incredible. That hotel service was greatand breakfast yummy. Definetly book this hotel.

Luxury in small-town Douro

5 out of 5
by from Vancouver
Posted Nov 1, 2015
Location: Superb location in the heart of the Douro. Easy walk to town sites and restaurants.
Everything as expected. A refined hotel with great staff and a superb location. We couldn't take advantage of the outdoor area and pool due to the weather, but I can imagine it would be a great place in the summer. We also didn't try the restaurant for dinner as we wanted something with a bit more local vibe and atmosphere. Breakfasts however were great.

Wonderful Experience

5 out of 5
by from Kansas City, Missouri
Posted Dec 9, 2014
Pros: We especially appreciated the staff and enjoyed the ambience and food served - evening meal and included breakfast.
Cons: We are not aware of anything.
Location: It is located in a small town in the middle of the port production area. The area is beautiful and there are many wine and port producers to visit.
Wonderful room. Helpful staff handling luggage. We were greeted with a glass of port. The bar and sitting room were decorated for the Christmas Holiday season. The meal we had in restaurant was delicious and well staffed. We were there in early December, off-season, and we still received the benefit of all the available facilities.

Hotel and immediate area visit

5 out of 5
by from Toronto, ON Canada
Posted May 28, 2014
Pros: Our room overlooked the river and had a nice patio. The dining areas were great - outside and inside. Fabulous breakfast - eat outside/inside
Cons: Can't think of anything that could be improved - maybe more vegetables and salad offerings with dinner and maybe chicken as an option.
Location: We were there for 2 nights and did not venture out in the car once we got there. We were very happy just to be there - did river cruise and walked.
The hotel was terrific.. Our room overlooked the river and had a nice patio. The dining areas were great - outside and inside. Very nice ambience with trees and shade and lots of room between tables. Swimming area - great as well The little town is precious with a number of restaurants for lunch or dinner. We went on the half day river cruise and that was very informative because we just happened to be on the same cruise with a personal guide from Porto who was explaining so much about the area and the history to his clients. Terrific experience and fond memories.

Comfortable hotel in the Douro Valley

4 out of 5
by from melbourne australia
Posted May 20, 2014
Pros: The setting was beautiful, with views of the river, car parking and free wi- fi all important when you have been travelling around.
Cons: The bathroom needs a make over soon.
Location: The hotel is right on the Douro river in portugal with easy access to the wineries of the region if you have a car.
The room was very comfortable we had a room with a view. The room was large with a comfie bed and a flat screen TV, the bathroom was large although it was getting a bit tired. The hotel was close to many of the wineries, but you need a car to get to them. The reasturant in the hotel was in a beautiful courtyard setting with views of the river but the quality was up and down, I had duck which was good , my husband had Hare stew which was really was very chewy! They also charge you for bread and olives, which they don't tell you they just put them on the table, the meal was quite expensive, and not good value. Breakfast was very good with lots of variety. We did find a great little reasurant down the road with river view called LVB 76 the food was good and they charge us for the bread and olives!
