5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

Loved the property although the dining restaurant needs a renovation to be up to standard with the rest of the hotel. Food was excellent. Location was tricky but since we are near the Douro river it is to be expected.
