hotel only opened(or refurbished not sure which) 8 months ago so clean and fresh.quiet setting, friendly staff although language was a barrier, did not feel touristy, relaxing except room was too hot. Difficult to find! Although parts of the hotel are finished to a high standard, there are some parts still to be completed. The main one is air conditioning in rooms, the machine was insitu in our room but not functional. We were informed A/C would be bought next year as it would cost 10000 Euros to put in for the whole hotel. There was an attractive bar/socialising area around pool complete with brand new (still in packaging) computerised til but nothing to buy in that part of hotel(i.e. no food or drinks!) If completed, this will be a very pleasant small hotel. despite all this we still enjoyed our stay but wouldn't have wanted to spend more than 1 night there.
Extremely friendly staff, despite a language barrier; they helped me find a store close by to buy a swimsuit to take advantage of their pool. When the wireless didn't work, they let us use their own computer. Very helpful. Beautiful pool, billiards table, facilities. Rooms are clean. Wireless didn't work. Air conditioning didn't quite work, though it didn't get too hot while we were there.
The people running the hotel are extremely kind. Great place, the hotel is very pretty and located in a very calm zone, although very near from the big cities: Braga and Guimarães. The room sizes vary, you can end up in a smaller room It should be extremely hard to locate the hotel without a GPS. The breakfast room can get chilly.
food; helpful staff expensive internet connection; awful location
Cleanliness, staff friendliness Stuck in 1970s. nowhere to sit outside in sunshine!
We were on a whistle stop tour, so it was a stopover - but thought the hotel was more geared to business men and women. Not quite up to our standard even though it was a stopover.
The restaurant is absolutely fantastic. Nothing to dislike: it is a simple hotel but very well maintained. Lunch and dinner in the restaurant are a joy.
It felt safe and secure. The bathroom was a high standard. It was clean. The staff were 'mostly' friendly Money was stolen from my camera bag, which I left in my room on the only evening I stayed at the hotel. A member of staff admired my camera on the way out (alerting him perhaps to the fact that there was money to be stolen). There were very few guests in the hotel. It was almost certainly a member of staff who stole it. I only noticed the theft when I was going through security at the airport on the way home
Nice place, looking bit like from 1970's in terms of architecture and furniture but well equipped, including wireless (but paid). Breakfast was bit more modest than in other hotels but fullfilling the basic needs. No serious points, just had to learn using the lock at the door (lock indoor, but close the door otherise still open) when someone is already used to cards.
The room was quite spacious.In general the staff was friendly and supportive. Breakfast was ok. The hotel is located pretty much outside the town at a busy road. You therefore either need a car or a taxi all the time. As not everybody from the reception desk has propper knowledge of English it very much depends on the person if international travellers can get their wishes and communication through. All in all the hotel appears as having been a nice one quite some time ago, but those times certainly have passed by.
Excellent staff. Great restaurant. Great Stay Timing to make the check in. Too few people on the front desk
The location is excelent. The staff The breakfast could be more completed (i wish to eat cereal's bread and had more options to choose).
