Swimming Pool It is not a case of 'not liking' - if you are asked me to rate the restaurant I would have stated 'poor to fair'. Being a person with immense experience in food and wine - and taking groups to many European wine regions, I thought the hotel and service superb but the restaurant was in no way compatible. The 'degustation menu' was extremely disappointing, the wines were not served at the right te
Very peaceful and tranquil
Wonderful location and views. A stylish, comfortable hotel I would like a towelling dressing gown in the room
I enjoyed the ambience, particularly the terrace for lunch. I enjoyed the architecture of the hotel. I enjoyed the view from my room which was spacious and very comfortable, especially the pillows. the food was good and the senior waiter was excellent. Nothing
Excellent view over the river Douro. Very good location to relax in a extravagant/luxory ambiance. Small balcony with two chairs or the canvas chairs near the pool let the Portwine taste even better. it is difficult to discover surrounding area by foot (no boardwalk, no hiking trails). Friendly staff, yet poorly trained.
Peace and quiet in a beautiful location. The hotel is delightful and charming. We had a room with a terrace where we could enjoy views of the river. The restaurant was beautifully presented but the kitchen did not live up to it's over-priced menu. We were very disappointed.
The wonderful welcome complete with a glass of port on the terrace - the best check in ever Lack of coffee table in junior suite
The Port was great! Location in the valley and comfort of our room with our own balcony--excellent. Cleaning staff was prompt and responsive, very nice. The lighting was a little dim, it was not easy to read. Could use brighter bulbs at least at the bedside.
the room and the view
It is one of the best hotels that I have already stayed. It is in a calm, beautiful and romantic place. It is wonderful!
The fantastic view, the quietness, the portuguese kindness, the wine, everything...
Superb location, attentive service, wonderful food. Fantastic - we will return.
The environment. The grave yards, the weather and sightseeing. The AC noise
The location and staff were first rate and better than could be expected. None
The staff and location are wonderfull. A great place to relax and enjoy the wine and country
On arrival we were shown the hotel and quinta. We were met with great hospitality and felt welcome at once. Dinner was delicate and clearly made with much care.
Beautiful location and immaculate attention to detail. Provided everything we could possibly need. None
A beautiful setting and a well run, well equiped,and friendly hotel
Spacious rooms, clean and comfortable Price for night not adjusted with the services offered, mainly the very poor breakfast, lots of better options in the region for 125€ a night
A lovely small tourist hotel with only a few rooms. Takes you back in time. You feel like you are walking around a museum with all the old furniture and fittings. Lovely place to stay. Liked the hotel a lot though not easy to find. Poor street name markings. Aim for the old church and its just off the square. Very isolated, not sure who it is trying to attract, but a great find for us.
Very old and uncomfortable furniture. Stupid design of overly large faucet over very small wash basin made its use very inconvenient. No warning of need to climb 3 floors to room when I have disability.
Beautiful, stylish interior, a touch of luxury, great location, very helpful staff Ideally, the staff could speak English...
Friendly environment. Localization: landscape, close to railway station and river pier, ideal for our purposes. Food.
Good location, friendly atmosphere
Good homely feel Surperb veiws
Run by a lovely family. Perfect situation for train travellers. Excellkent pool and good restaurant next door. Frfeshly squeezed orange juice for breakfast - lovely
Kindnes of staf and willingnes to help The staf spoke only portuguise
The hotel is conveniently located in the heart of Tua and Douro valley. Perfect for train travellers. Landscape around is beautiful. Restaurant nearby is excellent. The staff was friendly, we even got vegetarian breakfast. Should focus on enviromentally sound practises such as less frequent exchange of towels, etc.
Very pleasant riverside location in village consisting of little more than a railway junction station. Modern hotel, well-equipped. Restaurants within walking distance. Front door usually kept closed so summoning of proprietor required to gain entry, although his response to bell was impressive.
the location although remote was beautiful,right on the river with views of the vineyards. The owners went out of their way to make your have to drive all the windy roads once you arrived. I would really recommend this hotel. Nothing
staff did not speak English and the town of Tua was extremely isolated and hard to get to
Excellent breakfast with homemade stuff (fresh pressed orange juice), the hotel is led by friendly Portugese family, extremely quiet place, rooms with the view of Duero river
Fantastic experience in The Douro wine region. Will always remember the never ending supply of freshly baked cakes for breakfast. Also, really enjoyed sampling the owner's own Port and wine!
the family was very welcoming because of the language problem we did not understand that we could also eat in the evening
Maria, Arturi and Paolo were super friendly and accomodating. The food and wine were delicious. Good value for money. Beautiful setting amongst the vineyards with pool and view of the Douro River. Arturi picked me up and delivered me to the train station. Nice place to meet international travelers. Family style dining. Can visit port vineyards in the area. Having to leave.
extremely friendly staff, showing great hospitality and very nicely decorated rooms
The family atmosphere and the warm welcome from all the staff. The best place We've stayed in Portugal so far.
The family that runs Casa Cimeira couldn't have been any nicer and accommodating. They were one of the reasons our trip to the Douro region was so enjoyable. It felt more like staying with family then staying at a hotel.
Fantastic!!! The views are to die for, the place is unique and utterly delightful and the warmth of the welcome we received from the wonderful Maria and family was quite out of this world. Not to be missed. Leaving
The hospitality of the family who run the Casa was wonderful. The food, both at breakfast and at the evening meal was superb. The building has been renovated but still retains a genuine antique feel to it. The rooms were lovely,very clean with en-suite facilities. The location may not suit everybody as the house is situated in a mountain top village and is in a fairly remote area of the Douro. You really need a car to access it and if you are not a confident driver, the road up the mountain can seem quite hairy. That said, you will have to go a long way to match the overall experience of a few days here, especially if you are a Port wine lover !!
This is one of the finest places we have ever stayed in. The hospitality was amazing. The family owners could not have been more friendly, helpful or obliging. Beautiful food and wine added to our enjoyment of a fantastic stay in stunning surroundings.
incredible hospitality. port on the house, long extensive dinner (and cheap), tasty luxurious breakfast
The resort was amazing and the staff extremely caring and helpful. We had a wonderful experiance!
I liked ther location and all the beautigul surroundings; the hotel and its facilities are excellent as well as the hotel staff and restaurant services. It's a place to go for a good rest, to enjoy the peace of the countryside and be with family
excellent and friendly casual service, superior gourmet cuisine, superb winetasting, good year-round housing conditions, beautiful settings only negative point, lack of air conditioning, relevant under extreme heat in summer
