went hiking in the national park, to see a beautiful waterfall and on the way we encountered "wild" horses! the breakfast was rather poor and unprofessional looking(for the usual standard for pousadas)also we had a room in the old part of the hotel were the wood furniture was in urgent need the be repainted!!
The restaurant and bar was expensive for the offer
the quiet location the food in the restaurant was not very good and too expensive
Great view. It is an excelent place to rest.
Comfortable room; good bathroom. Good service, particularly in restaurant. Our balcony faced due south and needed some shade; balcony furniture rather tired, as is the garden. Restaurant prices are 'sky high', gourmand rather than gourmet. The prices for wine are extortionate; we bought local vinho verde at 3.30, price for exact same in restaurant 17.50! Second night we met other guests also 'Dining out'. Mini-bar same comment.
Excellent staff - couldn't be more helpful or nice, wonderful views. Overall charming. Small bathroom with poor light, and some humidity in ceiling. We went on a promotion, if I had payed full price I'd say rooms should be better, but for the price we paid it was excellent.
There was no tea/coffee making facilities in the room
The hotel has a very nice living room. The view from the hotel room. The quality of the bed.
Clean, basic room. Pleasant hotel staff. The hotel offers very simple rooms without specific amenities, which makes it pretty expensive with respect to quality. Beds were unconfortable. The parking is free but at a deserted location some four hundred meters from the hotel and unguarded.
Warm hosts, beautiful rural setting outside small town, personal attention and opportunity to get to know hosts.
Historical experience and good service
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.)
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.
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
Perfect location in the middle of the mountains - good for starting a hike.
The place (santuario da peneda and the natural park) is terrific and the hotel is new, comfortable and furnished in a "young" way there are no good signs to reach the hotel
Outstanding location overlooking square and mountain village. The famous pilgrim church and stairway is right beside the hotel and a mountain stream runs under the entrance of the hotel. We could park our hire car in the square under our bedroom window. The church bells ring twice on the hour mark right through the night. No mobile phone coverage
Perfect hotel in perfect place. Everything is OK!
Hotel da Peneda is a surprise amidst the Natural Park. Its setting is awesome, great atmosphere!
Quiet. Sight seeing. The staff was very helpful. (They even called me to give alternative directions.) There is no mobile phone network. Attention: please check your directions with the hotel, they can give you alternative routes.
This is a very nice small hotel and good value for money. Breakfast was buffet-style cold, decent value for money. The hotel is a little out of the way and a little difficult to find. You need a car, there is free car parking but perhaps limited if the hotel was busy. Some of the staff speak no English but others do. They were very helpful and allowed me to use their computer to book the next hotel.
Had a very relaxing break at Pensao Adelaide. The accommodation is basic, but had everything we needed and was good value for money. Worth it for the view from our balcony though...spectacular. Worst thing was breakfast...especially for veggies. Also, it didn't bother us once we'd got used to it, but the swimming pool is at the other side if the village - so you either have to walk, take your car, or get the Adelaide minibus. Very good pool though once you are there!
Friendly staff, cozy atmosphere. Good price/benefit relationship. (1) Some noise from children in the corridors after 10pm. Parents should be informed by staff that their children should keep silence after 10pm, 'cause other guests may be wanting to rest for the walking/early activities next day. (2) Breakfast sitting area should be extended to the enclosed balcony next to the breakfast room, the view over the mountains is very beautiful from there, but the balcony is reserved for lunch only, 3 and half hours later... Guests are deprived of that beautiful morning view in favor of the comfort of the hotel employees.
We stayed for one night with a friend after a day touring through the National Park. Staff was friendly, not very good knowledge of English, but used German to order the dinner which was fine with us. Excellent value for money. Nice views over the valley.
Located in a cute hillside village in the beautiful countryside - I loved the peace and the view over the valley from the hotel room! Just a little deceiving about the swimming pool - I was looking forward to soaking in the hotel's pool on arrival but discovered it was on the other side of the valley (although I believe they can transport you there) but it was closed! Otherwise I had a very enjoyable stay.
The staff was exceptionally helpful. The room was clean and had a lovely balcony with a view. If you arrive by bus as we did, it is a long uphill walk to the hotel.
Excellent location: beautiful nature around, sport facilities (bike hire, canoe hire, etc.) & plenty of cafés and restaurants nearby, pool, nice views from all (or most) of the rooms, fairly good breakfast. WiFi works well in the lobby and restaurant, less so in some rooms.
The breakfast was nice but cold milk for the cereals would be appreciated. The room had a really nice view with a great balcony and a very big bathroom but the church next door has a bell that rings every hour even during the night. There is a very nice little beach five minutes of walking from the hotel. The pool is great. There is even a park for the kids and a little swimming pool for kids. The walking trail number pr3 is great, but you can go on the top by car... The restaurant in the hotel was closed and it is a 10 min drive for the nearest good restaurant but the restaurant Pensao Baltazar in Geres is perfect.
Good location. No A/C and only one fan. Very hot room.
Good place for trips into the mountains of National Park Peneda Geresz, it is more mountain hostel than a hotel; own car park
Family environment,quiet, friendly and comfortable No internet facilities
Extreme care from the staff and extensive knowledge of the region including other regions surrounding Montalegre and Terras do Bouro. Good and complete breakfast with milk, coffee, ham, cheese, croissants, cakes, juice, tea, etc etc... Relaxing view from the cafeteria. The rooms and the other areas of the hotel were very clean w/o any kind of unconfortable noise or smell (as mentioned by others) and were very confortable. They have an indoor parking for customers with is very handy and make your life easirer. Definetly above the average regarding price/quality ratio.
The location is perfect, the people is nice. In hot summer days a AC would be a plus, mosquito nets in the windows would help for those that like sleaping with open windows in the summer.
Good value for money, and the private parking lot was a blessing. Breakfast was terrible and the rooms aren't soundproof enough. I could hear snoring coming from two(!) separate rooms.
Family atmosphere. I was well looked after. Not many places in the village were open as it was out of season
Extremely friendly and helpful people, they will do anything to make your stay as good as possible. They give very helpful tips to visit the region. We will go back. no
The hotel was on a beautiful lake. Kyaks, canoes etc for hire. We would have liked an extra couple of days here. Wonderful!
The staff is excellent. Very kind. Good restaurant.
Very friendly and helpfull staff. Fantastic view from some rooms on lake and mountains. Very good restaurant in hotel. Especially meat. Rooms small and slightly overpriced. Humming from road by near.
Friendly, with comprehensive local knowledge that allowed us to get the most from our 3 days in Geres National Park, and the surrounding landscape. Spotless modern bathroom with pristine soft white towels!
The hostess was very kind and helpfull, providing also tour guide advices
very kind staff, very good restaturant, beach in front of the hotel, good breakfast, car parking
Personal are very polite and helpful. Breakfast is perfect. Rooms are clean and simple. I don't recomend eat "bacalhau" - traditional portugese food. Fish was very salty - too much. I eat "bacalhau" first time, I didn't understand portugese can eat this food. I tried it again on anothar place, it was hundred time better. Price here was 16 €, in other parts could be ca 10 €.
Very friendly staff. Nice restaurant meals (local meat is very tasty!).
Nice location, helpful management, good food in the restaurant. Perfect choice for trekking in the nationalpark. The river just outside it's perfect for taking a morning or afternoon swim. We will return as soon as possible.
