To be fair, I did not stay at this property. I was not allowed into the country due to Covid since I am not a citizen per the Portuguese Government. My flight was cancelled in April and I have been attempting to get a refund or a credit since then. My flights as well as 4 other hotel stays and my car rental were refunded. This hotel? Zero!! Which is exactly what I am rating them. Shame on them and shame on Expedia for not doing the right thing. Both of them kept my money and I received nothing. Enjoy it, you won’t be seeing any of my dollars ever again. If you are reading this, I recommend you do the same. Go elsewhere and stay safe.

Birthday weekend.
Brilliant hotel, very friendly staff. Breakfast was perfect - though they will do a breakfast to your taste if you want to pay. The free one is quite a comprehensive buffet. Quiet hotel, except for the daily 0730 bin lorry so ask for a room at the back. One street back from the river, perfect location. Only improvement would be a bar - perhaps an honesty bar so that someone didnt have to serve. But somewhere to get a drink is always welcome. However, the mini bar in the room is reasonable and reception were happy to get ice. Wpuld stay here again in a heartbeat.
