"Fabulous historic building, all modern comforts."
Great experience overall, but Expedia needs to change the "complimentary wireless" info, as there is now surcharge for internet use. However, when we cited the info we relied on when making our reservation, we were offered some free connection vouchers to use during our stay (apparently the move to start charging for wireless was very recent). Everything else was wonderful: huge, spotless room, comfortable beds, great buffet breakfast, attentive staff. And the conversion of the historic building into a modern hotel was done in a remarkably tasteful way. Highly recommended, especially for the bargain price of a little over $100/night we were able to get!
The cottages, the restaurant, the amenities, and the service are all fantastic and at a very reasonable price. This must be Portugal’s best kept secrete. Only negative is that it’s very hard to find. Best to have a good GPS to avoid circling needlessly.
I did my research carefully and was certainly not disappointed with my choice of hotel in the Douro. The view from the terrace is so beautiful that you would be quite happy to sit here all day. The swimming pool was an additional attraction with comfortable sun beds
All of the staff were charming and kind
We are already planning a return visit. Excellent value for money!
