        Individual guest reviews

        • Older travelers

          A beautiful old building very tastefully converted to a hotel, full of character. Breakfast was very good & nicely presented

          On arrival, access to the car park across the square relied on a phone call, some form of intercom or code system would be better.

        • Older travelers

          Everything - with the possible exception that the water for the tea in the morning could have been a few degrees hotter, a problem that was soon solved! The house is a pleasure to stay in, quiet, central, beautifully modernised, and what a pleasure it is to be offered a substantial welcoming tea (hot this time) in the garden to the sound of distant jazz and the dripping of the waterfall wall into the lilly-strewn pond.

        • Older travelers

          Handsome old house, friendly staff. Free internet and parking. Position in Viana.

          We would have liked a larger dressing table which could more easily have doubled as a desk. But this is probably a minority need.

        • Family with children

          Historical premises, right at the edge of the town centre and in front of the railway station, with convenient parking facility. The best breakfast we enjoyed in Portugal.

        • Older travelers

          I was very lucky with my room as I had booked a de luxe room but we were given a suite, which was very generously sized. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. The location was excellent and the parking handy. Good breakfast with freshly squeezed oj. This shouldn't be unusual in Portugal but sadly it is. The hotel is an old building which has been sensitively converted.

          The coffee at breakfast was terrible. It tasted like cheap instant, made up and kept warm in a thermos jug. Almost every cafe and bar in Portugal serves lovely coffee so why do 4 star hotels serve this rubbish?
