Beautiful modern hotel in beautiful surroundings, will return for sure. Breakfast coffe not served at tables. I am a coffe drinker and had to get up many times just to get a cup of coffe
Very nice, modern hotel, good location
The staff, bedroom and food. The hotel is still being done. It should be noticed what is available at the hotel information page.
Staff,rooms and food very good
the room food and spa were very good. the hotel is easy to find and in walking distans from the city
We have appreciated very much the attention of all the staff. The hotel is new and we feel comfortable there. The rooms are nice and clean. The toilet is also modern and easy to use. The location is good. It is relatively far from the city and is quiet. However, it central to the Douro area and is a good starting point to visit it, including Amarante, Porto, the river Douro, etc. For those who travel in family, it is also important to say that there is a recreation park nearby, the "Bracalândia" park, which is a sort of little "Isla magica". Finally, there is also the pool in the hotel. But for more about the pool see below. The spa and pool are not exactly owned by the hotel, but it seemed to me that it belongs to another owner. The staff there is not as nice as in the hotel. I think they try to keep a quiet ambience in the in the installations, and so they react a little bit negatively to the presence of kids. Actually, there is a restricted period when the kids are allowed, which is from 10h-12h and 15h-17h. We did not know about that, and had to wait to get in! Apart that, the rest was ok.
We needed to leave reasonably promptly in the morning to catch a flight and the hotel were a little reluctant to begin breakfast before 7.30am
Lovely well designed, clean hotel , well mannered helpful staff, well worth the money would 100% return at a later date. Pool would be nice and slightly more variety for breakfast would be good
The hotel was clean and modern, the staff helpful and friendly. The shower was a bit substandard (temperature and pressure variable). The Restaurant was closed on the Sunday night of our stay - which was a nuisance as we'd been looking forward to eating there. However, we were able to find a very friendly Portuguese place in the town - great food at very reasonable price.
Very clean, nice apartment, good equipment. Wireless internet is not avaiable in all rooms. Only few parking places.
Service, hotel cleanliness, breakfast internet wifi
Clean, well appointed room and very good value. I arrived at 10.00pm as the restuarant was closing but they stayed open for me and provided soup and an omelete No
Good, modern and spacious hotel apartment with friendly staff and excellent breakfast. Nice place to stay if you have a car and want to explore the Douro region. It is a long way from Porto centre and deceiving in its description.
The very friendly staff and the good location in a quiet area
Nice room, with a lot of space, two LCD TV. Air conditioning not working.
Friendlyness of the staff. Difficult to find
Excellent hotel with personality, quiet, 30min from Porto by car, cheap. Rich breakfast, very friendly and polite staff. Good beds, beautiful stone rooms. A bottle of wine and two small bottles of water were expecting us as a gift. Tea for free 24h. Nothing at all!
A lovely hotel with a very welcoming atmosphere, good and cheap buffet restaurant including drinks with a great waiter! The rooms are comfortable and nicely decorated. The standard rooms have no adequate airconditioning, so rooms can get very hot especially on the upper floors.
It was a lot nicer than the pictures, or the google earth view. Staff smoking.
Excellent hotel. We stayed there just for one night, but we really enjoyed. If you visit the north of Portugal this is a very good place to stay. The service is outstanding. We recommend to use the restaurant. No problem to parking.
The attention of the hotel staff Breakfast was served too late, it starts at 8:30 am
The staff where very helpful, friendly & couldn't do enough or us. The rooms were spacious & comfortable. Breakfast was very good.The dinner represented excellent value for money as it included a pre-dinner drink & 2 bottles of wine. The dinner buffet would have been very monotonous after a couple of days.
The staff couln't have been more helpful. The room & breakfast both excellent. The dinner was poor, left overs, puddings displayed nightly were the same. Food was overcooked, poor quality, very bad value for money.I would NOT return there unless outside facilities improved and they got a new chef. Nothing was open for us outside. They hadn't tried and I would not return. Dinner was just AWFUL. Dry meat, stringy meat, canned vegetables - very very poor. 15 euros was too much for the food. Same soup 2 nights running. Left over meat heated up; Vegetables tinned; puddings the same night after night - the same puddings not new ones. I think Health & Safety would have a field day there!
Charming room, calm and quite surroundings. It was cold (late November), there was a small heater available but too noisy to switch on during the night.
Very nice place: calm and quiet. Since I don't have GPS its not the easiest hotel to find
an old farm house, yet renovated and with very modern furnitures. very clean and highly maintained. location is a little bit far from highway, the room had 2 separate beds you could not connect together.
Beautiful garden, great swimming pool. Difficult to find the way to the hotel, no sign posts or directions. Not all staff speaks English.
beautiful setting, very nice owner who was very helpful it was just a shame the swimming pool had been damaged and was out of use
