Stayed here one night. The reception was a little hasty because the receptionist was also serving tables at lunch. The room was okay but a little old. The bed was quite small and was hard for me to sleep in. Breakfast was good. The information on where to go for a hike was a little unclear, but with a bit... More

The proprietor and his family are welcoming and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble. We like hiking and an excellent hike was organized for us each day. Nice breakfast and we ate dinner there twice - simple, wholesome, filling and delicious and I highly recommend the Veal Moderna style. All-in-all, a thoroughly enjoyable three nights. Free on-site parking a bonus... More

One of the best value hotels I have stayed in. Hard to believe it's only a 2 star. Lovely clean rooms with good bathroom, free wi-fi in our room and excellent buffet breakfast with plenty of choice. We were given lots of help on things to see, drives and walks in the area. Private car park. Nice elevated postion above... More

We arrived to the hotel on the cold and rainy day. Rooms were heated nicely, and they stayed like this throughout our stay. Rooms were big enough and very clean. Bathroom was also very clean and nicely bright & refurbished. The owner, was wonderful! He gave us so much advice where to travel and what to see, the best routes... More

I stayed for one night only. The staff, which basically is a family that owns and runs the place, is really friendly. Hard to find better for the price. The rooms are standard; they are very clean and have a very pleasant view. You can walk to any point on Vila do Gerês from this hotel, it is well located.... More

I stayed for a couple of nights and was really impressed by the natural hospitality of Gil and his family. This isn't the Ritz- but look at the price! It's excellent value. The room we had was well sized, it had a good bathroom and a big balcony with a great view. OK the room wasn't swanky but it was... More

Gerês is certainly one of the best places you can go to relax and enjoy the wonders of a beautiful natural park. I stayed at Moderna last week with a big group, and really enjoyed the hotel and even more the service, as the family who owns and runs the place is nice and friendly. The rooms are clean, they...
