The Palace and golf course we're impeccable. Everyone from housekeeping, doormen, restaurant, bar, reception and golf staff created a mood of calm, understated efficiency. We were a party of eight and, on behalf of all of us - it was the best combination of elegant relaxation and sport we have ever experienced.

Superb 5 star Hotel with all facilities including excellent parkland golf course. The location may be a bit out of the way but the trip is absolutely worth it. We travelled with a golf group and all had a superb time.

Having had a major operation last year I was looking for an hotel with facilities such as spa and swimming pool to help recovery and a sunny break for a week. As indicated on the Vidago Palace website and in all the reviews I could find the VP seemed to fit the bill exactly with excellent facilities and good food.... More

A one night stay after reading an article in the telegraph. Most wonderfully restored hotel, beautiful decor, sensitively restored. A wonderful hour spent in the spa. Dinner was exquisite, could not be improved (apart from oiling the door into the kitchen) a great nights sleep in top quality bed linen and wonderful breakfast completed the stay. Service by all staff... More

Northern Portugal is less visited probably and with Porto so close, foreign travelers probably stop there. The Vidago Palace is a stunning Belle Epoque building, the entrance is magnificent. We trotted in on the hunt for a great hotel for high end clients and we immediately got the sense that THEY GOT IT! Very pretty rooms and bathrooms, breakfast outstanding,... More

A magnificent Hotel in a still unspoiled region! Rather than say something that will seem always insufficient just go there and feel the experience. If you go on cold season please go to the SPA and enjoy the outdoor heated pool, incredible sensations. This place is on my "must go again" list.

A 5 star hotel should not only be a lodging place, it should be a destination in itself. The great palace hotels build in the 19th century were constructed to be a destination. Very few maintain that ambience and the rating. Vidago Palace Hotel has achieved it after 4 years of restauration of a building that started as a hotel... More

No, the building wasn't a surprise - I had seen all the pictures of this glorious pink belle epoque palace - but the location took me completely by surprise. I had never been north of Oporto before, but as we drove - clear motorway - further north the scenery became wider, bigger, higher and oh so dramatic. There were beautiful... More

Drove up to the stairs at the entrance of the hotel where the staff took the car away. At the reception we were given our room and information about the program for New Year´s Eve. When we reached our room the luggage was waiting and the garment bags were in the closet. The room was nice and the bathroom huge... More

A truly 5 stars hotel experience. The feeling is luxurious and overwhelming but at the same time warm and welcoming. The rooms are nicely decorated and very confortable. Bathroom toiletries are delicious. Service is 5 stars and the menu in the main restaurant pricy but of excellent quality. The pork cooked for 12 h is the hero of the menu.... More
