Pousadas used to have a reliably excellent reputation, but now that they've been privatised, it's hit and miss. This one, apart from the view, is one to miss. The bedroom smelled of damp mould -"from carpet cleaner" we were told but the carpets were all dirty and stained. The bathroom was poky with no functioning ventilation so our swimmers still... More

A charming hotel with a great view over the park and the river. The staff was very polite and gave us all the informations we needed. The beds were very comfortable and the room was clean and tidy. The best part is sitting outside enjoying all the green on the surrounding park.

First came here over 30 years ago and dined here regularly. Nostalgic trip to show my wife as we now live in the North of Portugal. Great food with very helpful service. The views are to die for!

This is a lovely building, almost feels like a ski chalet in its style. We stayed in two of the old rooms which are very authentic, extremely comfortable beds, if a little dark. The staff are all very welcoming but they do need to have someone to attend to the bar as we had to ask most days at reception... More

A very inviting hotel with the most stunning views! The staff were very friendly and offered us lemonade on arrival. We were given a map and places of interest were marked for us to visit.

The Pousada is built to look like a typical mountain home. The view from the pousada is spectacular. The staff are very friendly and accommodating but too few to attend efficiently to the needs of the guests. The rooms are clean and comfy.

great hotel, good service, worth spending the money on a room with a view. 2 days is enough time to drive around and admire the views. Do not bother to go through the park to Spain, the views are better on the Portuguese side. Go to Vieira do Minho ( next town over ) pick up a nice bottle of... More

The room had an amazing view across the valley. The place is beautiful. While the room was a nice size the bathroom was tiny. So small that the toilet seat wouldn't stay up as the toilet bowl was squeezed so close to the water tank. Sound minor? I found it annoying. The food at the restaurant is very limited which... More

We stayed for four nights in room which has a side view of the river and everyone must admit that the view is amazing. You'll get a better view on the terrace and at the restaurant. However it's a charming pousada with character it would benefit from a refresh in the rooms (already said by other visitors). The furniture of... More
