the room and the view
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
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
Very peaceful and tranquil
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.
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.
It is one of the best hotels that I have already stayed. It is in a calm, beautiful and romantic place. It is wonderful!
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
Wonderful location and views. A stylish, comfortable hotel I would like a towelling dressing gown in the room
Nice room and hotel, great breakfast. Vila Real is not so interesting place.
The views and location. More services...gym...sauna etc..
Very convenient for visiting Mateus Estate
very nice and comfortable rooms, very kind and welcoming staff
A good and efficient 4*hotel .Would definitly use it again
i didn't enjoy the period i stayed there. The people who work there are very confusing ,because when i asked something for them, they always answer in a difficult way to understand. There are no accommodations for the disability people . The room that was created for these people isn't useful, because the bathtub is horrible to enter and my grandmother couldn't enter there. Also, the breakfast is horrible, it hasn't anything good there. I didn't enjoy any minute I spent in these hotel. It was a totally waste of time. AH, and how many elevators should we get to arrive at the room ? i lost the notion. many many,! And everyday they were broken, so my grandmother had to walk through the stairs. And the price? Too much for nothing. I wouldn't go back again to these hotel, waste of time
Price Wish we had a room with River view and balcony as there appeared were quite a few available.
location, view from room
Close enough to centre of town without noise. Pool good size and accessible. Staff helpful.
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
The fantastic view, the quietness, the portuguese kindness, the wine, everything...
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
The environment. The grave yards, the weather and sightseeing. The AC noise
Superb location, attentive service, wonderful food. Fantastic - we will return.
The location and staff were first rate and better than could be expected. None
Room and facilities were superb and memorable. Views were breathtaking and worthy of many photos. Wines were first-rate and the tour of the facility was very interesting. Can even walk among the vines. Glad we stayed there! This is not about the hotel itself but the drive to it on a very harrowing and treacherous road. The road is a switchback and very narrow, only wide enough for one narrow car but is considered two-way. This makes the 15 km. drive to the hotel about an hour! The infrastructure needs to be improved, because the guests are absolutely exhausted (speaking for ourselves) by the time of arrival to the hotel.
The Quinta itself is very beautiful, with plenty of spaces to explore and great views over the Douro Valley. Nothing to point. Excellent experience.
The environment The air conditiong was not functioning well!
Very poor breakfast (choise)
Helpful and knowledgeable staff and wonderful setting.
Kindness Staff and see sight No cold minibar in my room
Stunning sorrounding, super friendly staff, a real gem. Be aware that you have a 25 minutes ride off the main street in the Douro vineyards. Not negative, just be aware....
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
Good homely feel Surperb veiws
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
Friendly environment. Localization: landscape, close to railway station and river pier, ideal for our purposes. Food.
Good location, friendly atmosphere
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.
Kindnes of staf and willingnes to help The staf spoke only portuguise
staff did not speak English and the town of Tua was extremely isolated and hard to get to
Run by a lovely family. Perfect situation for train travellers. Excellkent pool and good restaurant next door. Frfeshly squeezed orange juice for breakfast - lovely
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 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
incredible hospitality. port on the house, long extensive dinner (and cheap), tasty luxurious breakfast
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.
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 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
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 family atmosphere and the warm welcome from all the staff. The best place We've stayed in Portugal so far.
extremely friendly staff, showing great hospitality and very nicely decorated rooms
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 !!
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.
We stayed in 9 hotels in Portugal. This is the most excellent one. The host is genuinely nice, not just being commercial. He has his own cellar making port. We were offered unlimited amount of welcome drinks (home made port). Although we did not had dinner at the hotel, we were offered some soup, dessert, wine and dessert free. The house is nicely decorated in a traditional Portugal style. The location is incredible with a fantastic view of the river. It is like traveling back in time to a quite Portugal village for a very authentic experience. Not near any big city. You have got to drive. No internet - a blessing if you want a real break!
our bedroom window looked out onto a scene of rural tranquility and the duoro river; a place to get away from it. nearby are good-to-great restaurants and an outstanding vineyard and tasting room (quinta do tedo).
This is the best place of stay during our 14-days trip in Portugal. We have never stayed in the 600-years old house, we have never drunk such a tasty port wine made by the owner, and we have never met such hospitable owners. Damien and Louise very good speak French. They can provide you with all necessary information. And what delicious baked pudding and egg desert have been prepared by Louse. This is a calm and quiet place for a rest; there are magnificent views to the river and vineyards. The hotel is well-equipped cozy and comfortable. There are direction signs to the hotel on the road. The best way to come is to turn on the second second sign (from the side of Regua). The parking area is enough for 6 cars. The field for comments above is too small for all my opinion about the hotel
Very good countryside hotel in a very nice region with a tremendous view to Douro river. The owners are very kind and are there always to help. The breakfast was served in the kitchen owners and was delicious. If you want to rest, you must choose this countryside hotel because you will only hear the birds in the morning. The hotel have a covered place to park at least 6 cars. Quinta da Azenha is higly recomended!
The hotel family were very hospitable, the location is good for the Douro region.
Owner of the Qunita is welcoming each guest nicely and is very helpful. Nice is as well that breakfast is in the family kitchen on one big table with all hotel guests, thsu you get to know some persons during your trip. Our room was nicely decorated (roses behind the bed on the wall) and had an breathtaking view to the river and the Douro valleys. The most excisting was that the owner invited the guests to produce wine by stepping on the grapes. Driving up to the Quinta is in narrow streets, but at least the way is short, well marked with signs and on the evenings there is enough light.
