The Staff was kind, the Hotel provides an excelent breakfast and the location is great! The road in front of the Hotel is a bit busy, but out of summer it's ok.
Within easy walking distance of town centre. Good breakfast. The hotel has been substantially altered internally in last year, not always by way of improvement, eg baths sacrificed for showers, refitted drawers would not open.
Very pleasent stay, room very clean and very confortable: A really good breakfast full of everything ( impossible to stay on a diet) . Excellent views. All the staff very nice. I will come back for sure. Actually i liked everything the only thing missing on a 4 star hotel is a restaurant.
The staff were friendly and the breakfast was good. The restaurant is nice and sunny. I thought the recent refurbishment was very nice in the rooms. However, I thought the corridors were too dark, especially for a hotel near the beach. I think there needs to be more staff so that the service in the hotel can run more smoothly.
Excellent hotel with a brilliant swimming pool after walking on the Camino Nothing
The very special sorroundings,and the fantasticview from our room overlooking the river . The food,especially the starters were not matching the overall good impression.It was very hard to find the right entrance to the castle from the map we printed out from your site.
Everything is excelent
The Pousada is much nicer than we were led to expect by other reports. The views, from the rooms and the restaurant, are spectacular. Appreciated the freshly-squeezed orange juice and the big selection of breads and rolls at breakfast. It has no lift.
Excellent location both for relaxing and shopping. No parking area reserved for hotel guests.
panoramic view, nice room with balcony, kindness of personel, quietness, dinner and breakfast music in dining room: only 3 perpetuating numbers
A stunning place to stay for anyone wanting to avoid the archetypal European hotel offer. A great experience all round In truth Ponte de Barca has relatively little to commend it compared with Ponte de Lima but the Casa Nobre do Correio-Mor makes up for it
Historical experience and good service
It was interesting and quite spectacular. It was packed with antiques which, although interesting, gave the house a damp and musty smell. It was also quite dark. They do not accept cards so we had to go to a cash dispenser.
The overall atmosphere of the place and kindness of the staff The bet was definitely too small and uncomfortable. The breakfast was ok but would need more variety (fruit, croissants, etc.)
Warm hosts, beautiful rural setting outside small town, personal attention and opportunity to get to know hosts.
staff friendly and helpful. free internet and parking. breakfast was brilliant with lots of choice. swimming pool great and excellent beach for children only 3mins walk. supermarket next door. rooms cleaned everyday. nothing bad to say, everything was amazing and such good value for money.
A quite pleasant hotel with a good position The early morning calls from the cockrels
Pequeno almoço, instalações, simpatia, isolamento acústico Parque de estacionamento pequeno e algo longe do hotel, mas também condicionado pela localização do hotel numa parte antiga da vila.
clean rooms, very good breakfast, parking quite far away from the hotel
The breakfast was excellent. The fact that the beds were separated...
it has a nice location a little bit noisy, bedframe was old and made a lot of noise
First of all - the little town is so nice and with only few people, when out of season. The rooms, staff, pool area is really nice. Good breakfast (more like brunch). Nice with the balcony - it makes the room bigger. Just one insignificant thing... the breakfast did not have fresh fruit
Very small room the place were we take a bath with aromoterapia is for a chil not a adult person
Lovely hotel in centre of Vila Praia de Ancora. Good staff, very comfortable room and huge choise of breakfast. all spotlessly clean
very good location, excellent breakfast
This is a superb hotel in terms of comfort and enjoyment, this was my second stay there so you can see I really enjoy it ! The restaurant is an excellent venue with superb food and helpful staff. I recommend this hotel its a gem.
Comfort and warmth
Hotel corridors were covered in works of art. The room had a balcony and a good poolside view. The breakfast was included. The best value European hotel that I have stayed in. Apart from breakfast the food available was poor but there is a cafe and a good restaurant nearby.
pool area very limited availability of drinks at the pool bar with the argument that the hotel is not placing more orders since they want to end with the stock - this indicates poor customer service and poor good management practices
Excellent rooms, service and breakfast. Valenca and Cerveira surounds were also very recomendable. Nothing at all.
Very clean, the breakfast was excellent, a lovely pool, the staff were very friendly and helpful.
This is a nice modern hotel to stay for a few days, visiting the surroundings. The room was comfortable and clean. The hotel staff was really nice and very helpful. The hotel, apart form the breakfast does not serve any more meals. If you want to have dinner or lunch you'll have to go to a nearby restaurant that belongs to the same owner, but we do not recommend it at all. Well, is quite a shock coming from the clean cool contemporary approach of the hotel to one of the best portuguese/spanish and traditional kitsch examples. Absolutely vulgar.
The location is great, very close to the medieval city of Valença and the crossborder with Spain. The infra-structure is modern and the surroundings very calm. I've ordered a double room, but what I got was a twin. In this way, I recommed to specify your preference in the observations box while you are booking the room. The breakfast is in general terms good, however the breakfast room is very small for the size and capacity of the Hotel. One time I had to wait for other guests to finish their meal. The waiters are very competent, but due to the "confusion" their working in, they are always running, what makes you feel uncomfortable. However, if you go on a regular weekend (I've stayed on a 3 day-weekend, with Monday being a holiday), it must be more calm.
surroundings helpful staff nice breakfast
Atmospeher Internet in room
Wonderful landscapes, nice instalations and very courteous staff. No internet wireless available in the hotel main areas.
Beautiful building and location with large, comfortable room. View is fantastic. Not within walking distance of much, but easy drive to some charming, touristy beach towns.
beautifull convent vieuw from garden towards river swimming pool also one for kids - free tennis court
The location and the facilities (in the main building) are quite good. The building is very nice. Some aspects were not up to par, for a four star hotel. There was a persistent sewage smell in the bathroom. The room heating was not available, although the wheather was already chilly, especially in the morning. The sofas in the room had the cloth worn, and the wadding was visible. One of the carpets in the room was rather dirty.
Very good landscape. Very beatiful location. Very nice pool. Excellent place to rest.
Quiet, magnificient view to the valley, hospitality of the staff, it's a very romantic place.
Facilities are good The hotel is stark and lacks charactor.
nice situation and surrounding, modern architecture air condition was not working at our arrival (27 °C in the room), fixed 36 hours later
Quiet and relaxing atmosphere
Good hotel for resting. Nothing relevant to point out. The only thing I believe that needs improving is the breakfast. It's not bad, but it could be better.
Ease of access and open spaces of the golf course The 300 yard walk to the restaurant (golf club house) can get a bit cold and wet! The hotel must have the biggest rusty door in the world - maybe something went wrong with the stainless steel effect.
quite local just out of ponte lima excellent restaurant and service noisy of cars outside front of hotel on cobbled road if you have a front room
Stayed only one night. Appreciated a lot the design from the 70's-80's that is just as it was back then! Specially the radio controls at the top of the bed :-)
It is very close to the castle - point of interest for the turists. It is very very old. If we could travel back in time 20 years ago, the hotel would be in a great condition... It is a little creepy! The corridors, the carpets, the wallpaper...
Despite somewhat shabby exterior, interior very nice and comfortable. Very lose to old town. Good restaurant next door. Busy road, some traffic noise
The room has good conditions and the staff is always available. The price is excelent. The city is also very nice No.
Very good price for a large comfortable room. View across the road to park and fortress.On street parking outside on a busy road but noise not a problem Great value for money.
Very close to town centre and castle. 10% discount for youth travellers. I'm quite sure the hotel doesn't diserve 3 stars, the true rating is 2 max 2 and a half star. Quite old facilities, in early 1980s the hotel was a modern and good one, however since then management hasn't invest in the hotel at all. The walls were made out of paper I guess, in the night I wasn't able to sleep because of a telephone call of my neighbour and he seemed to be whispering. Quite poor breakfeast.
The rooms were spacious, clean, and well lighted. The breakfast was very good. The hotel was in an excellent location.
Good value for the price. Very close to the Fortaleza (just 3 minutes on foot to the castle gates).
Great position just opposite the castle and flexible about an early breakfast. Staff spoke English.
Good value hotel. Breakfast was disappointing.
A classic Portuguese quinta (farmhouse) with a superb countryside location adjacent to a picturesque golfcourse.
Fantastic hotel, excellent for a calm and romantic weekend, the staff is very friendly, the surroundings and the building itself are just marvellous.
Amazing hotel! Everything was decorated to the smallest detail possible. This is an old farm house (luxrious one) renovated - so they have original items everywhere. Very romantic place. Make sure you get the downstairs appartment (next to the pool) - and especially the left appartment which have a double bed. The hotel is hard to find - even with gps. Take a map with you in advance with specific driving instructions. The staff do not speak english at all and you are required to check in before 10 in the night. Do not take the room with the attic (the 2 floor room). It has no proper ventilation and it is very small and has no air. Take only the two room appartment!
The rooms are great. There is plenty of space and the pool is good too. Although the manager is very friendly she only spoke Portugese. The accomodation can be a bit tough to find.
Beautiful old house and grounds, lovely pool. Very good breakfast served to us. Very hard to find the hotel, no obvious signage from main road. There did not seem to be anyone else around and we felt a little uneasy.
Staff very good, rooms of very good standard, fabulous views and amazing scenery, breakfast good, swimming pool in garden, peaceful and quiet location. Would like to go again and also to have stayed longer. None
Rooms are big. We had a 2 room junior suite for only 60 eur a night. Swimmingpool with clean water. Nice bathroom with a bath and shower. For very little extra (8 eur per person) we could use a finnish sauna, that was quite acceptable (we come from Estonia so we are tight when it comes to saunas :)). The personnel was helpful. Free table tennis and pool table. A very pleasant surprise altogether.
Everything was very good.
We had a very nice and relaxing time, exactly what we wanted. The all complex of rooms, garden, pool and communal area is very well kept. If you are in the area I highly recommend it.
Fantastic view from room, very easy access to beach and intersting local market No resteraunt but plenty of available cafe. No secure parking
On the beach. Definitely not 4-star - barely 3-star. Breakfast was miserly. Hotel and room were very basic. Booked for 3 nights only stayed 2 nights could not get a refund, but still didn't stay. note: you have to pay up-front, and there is a no refund policy. I wonder why?
Excellent location right on the beach. Basic hotel but clean and comfortable.
The location of the hotel is excellent and the rooms with a sea view are great. Good choice of channels on tv. Breakfast very poor for the price. Even when we asked to pay the extra for eggs we were told they did not have any as there was no custom for it. No parking at all anywhere. Had to park a good 15 minutes walk away.
Amazing reception staff and fabulous location - right on the beach. We only wish we could have stayed longer.
Really nice guesthouse with pool, sun terrace, bbq area and big garden in a nice neighbourhood but it's impossible to find the house by yourself. We had to ask some locals who knew the way. Owner doesn't speak any other language than Portuguese, also a bit tricky... But it all worked out in the end and we would definitely come back.
