Pros: The lady who was the helper was so helpful and friendly and it was she alone who made our stay supportable. She is Dona Emilia and deserves a huge thankyou for trying to put right all that happened. Also we had the use of their kitchen to make tea or coffee which was very nice.
Cons: They had double booked the room. The breakfast was very poor. There was no cheese from the Serra de Estrela, as advertised, (which my wife was looking forward to), just processed cheese slices!!, & a bit of thin cut bread, they could have made a better effort. There was only portuguese TV and reception was so bad that only one chanel was available.We were at least expecting satelite. My wife is English and doesn't want to see portuguese TV. Also there were no shelves anywhere to put cosmetics, shaving articles etc. All in all the negatives outwayed the positives.
