Nice hotel very centrally located

Posted Sep 27, 2016
Pros: It's proximity to the beach, rail station and bus terminal. The staff - couldn't do enough for you.
Location: Across the road to the beach and beautiful promenade which took you into Cascais. Lisbon only 40 mins by train and Sinatra 45 mins by bus.
The hotel is across the road to the train station and bus terminal making travelling to Lisbon and the surrounding areas very easy. The hotel room was comfortable and clean. Whilst there are only balconies on the top floor the french doors when opened give the impression of sitting on a balcony so it wasn't a problem. The hotel staff are brilliant especially the reception staff. Very helpful and very friendly. Nothing seems too much trouble. The buffet breakfast had good choices both hot and cold and was replenished constantly by the waiters and waitresses. The hotel has its own vineyard therefore the wines sold were very good. The cheapest came in at €2.95 a bottle and the special reserve at€4.70!!! A real bargain. Would I stay here again? Yes definitely!

Room with view

Posted Sep 9, 2016
This is a well run, clean hotel in a good position. The breakfasts were excellent, the staff were good. I paid extra for a sea view, on Thursday and Saturday a club on the beach 500m away, had a rave from 2300 to 0600hrs! The bass and volume was so high I could not block the noise. Little sleep those two night!

Very good location

Posted Jun 24, 2016
Had a good week at Vila Gale. The location is really good, easy access to beach and railway line. Almost pennies to get to Lisbon on very regular train. Food in the hotel is good. Clean bed linen and towels regularly and good environmental policy operates.

Good hotel, very helpful staff and good location for train links to Cascais and Lisbon. The hotel is also in prime position for a lovely promenade walk to Cascais (approx 20mins stroll).

Very nice location in the outskirts of Lisbon

Posted Jan 10, 2016
We arrived there with uncertain expectations. We were however pleasantly surprised the way we were welcomed at the hotel by the friendly staff. We stayed there for 9 nights and felt very much at home. Estoril and the neighboring Cascais are beautiful pleasant towns and certainly a nice area to be in if your visiting Lisbon and surrounding cities. The train station is across from the hotel.

Nice beach hotel close to the city

Posted Jan 10, 2016
Pros: Location
Cons: Front desc
The hotel was well suited for our purposes to be on the beach and yet to be close to Lisbon. The swimming pool at the top of the hotel was nice and so was the breakfast. A bus stop that took us to historical town of Sintra and the Casias shopping mall was very close nearby. The restaurants in the area were prohibitively expenses.

Good location for beach, trains etc

Posted Nov 7, 2015
Pros: Staff very attentive.
Cons: Water pressure to be improved in room. A daily weather forecast should be displayed at reception.
Location: Beach accessed by a nearby tunnel Under main road and railway. Promenade has several restaurants which are good value.
Room was spacious on the 7th floor. Water pressure was low making the shower difficult. Only Buffet meals . offered but good quality.
