We are currently enjoying a two night stay at the Pousada. The hotel is clean, and the staff is welcoming and professional. They let us check in early, (our flight landed at 6am, we arrived at 11 am.) The room was spacious and comfortable. Yes, the hotel is an older establishment, but it is in great shape. All the remarks... More

Such a beautiful building and away from it all. Loved the peace and space. The staff were lovely - and so was the food and wine. Impressed with the swimming pool which is a good length and very well maintained.

We had a great experience last weekend. This unique place just met our expectations and more. We were looking for a quiet, authentic place cause we needed to relax and cherish each other.

The rooms in the new wing are big and comfortable. If you want the castle experience the maybe pay more for the historic wing, otherwise don't bother. Sensational post-modern pool combined with fine bar and dining room for overall good experience in this fairly remote location. Hospitable staff. But really the food was disappointing.

We loved this Pousada, the setting is fabulous the quiet and tranquillity just amazing and nothing is too much trouble for the staff. The perfect blend of old and new where the building has been transformed from a ruin to a very useable building.

This is our favourite Pousada. It never fails. It is so peaceful and a day or three here is brilliant for re-charging batteries. The rooms are spacious and the views stunning. The facilities are excellent. You do need a car! We highly recommend Flor da Rosa.

From the moment you approach this hotel your head says WOW. An imposing monastery in a rural location with a modern conversion. Set in a rural village with no facilities may put some people off but we loved it. It's a real get away from it place with lovely grounds, pool and gardens. Restaurants are available within a 10 min... More

We decided to spend 5 days driving around Portugal after our 3 days in Lisboa. One of the Pousadas on our itinerary was Crato. The drive from Oporto to Crato was very comfortable and once on the country roads, breathtaking. We rolled down our windows and smelled pine from the sparsely populated areas approaching Crato. The Crato hotel was outstanding.... More

what a wonderful place to go and relax, with lovely building with the old architecture mixed with modern facilities and services.

A 4-star hotel in an old castle with a modern annex. Part of the rooms are in the old 13th century building. The rooms in the annex are spacious and agford a view of the countryside. It has a great restaurant and the breakfast buffet is a sight to behold. Absolutely recommendable.
