More than a little underwhelming, so many glowing reviews, but in all honesty, it was a pretty average place, somewhere between a B&B and a small hotel. Rooms were functional at best, I personally am not a fan of having the toilet and shower in an open plan kind of room.Breakfasts were very sparse,very poor options, with no real variety... More

I stayed here for 3 days in 0ctober 2015. It was in a quiet central location within walking distance of much that you may wish to do in Cascais. My room was very spacious more like a suite than a room in a largish home converted into a boutique hotel. While I did not avail myself of the grounds it... More

Fantastic garden within minutes of Cascais center and beaches. Personnel was extremely helpful and discreet and my stay was very pleasant. The hotel is near the city center and yet makes you feel like you are in he countryside, with birds chirping just outside the bedroom window.

A very nice guest house, quietly located, a green oasis very close to downtown. Classic and modern facilities mixed together. Superclean. Good suggestions concerning restaurants away from tourist traps. Free parking in the street. Common sitting area was nice, clean and comfortable. A good place to quietly relax and read a book.

All the staff was very nice and welcoming Common áreas and rooms diversed and perfectly clean. Not in the center of cascais wich makes it quieter and a good place to rest. In the surroundings we found Guincho beach. A natural treasure. Wide beach with big dunes, Sintra mountain in the back and atlantic beach with nice beautiful waves a... More

We booked this guest house at the last minute on our travels through Portugal and were pleasantly surprised. The neighbourhood is gorgeous and everything is within walking distance. The grounds are huge and well taken care of, the staff was super nice and the room we had in the original house was older but renovated in a hip modern vibe.... More

A gem of a hotel! We stayed while on a golfing holiday in the area. The guest house is beautiful with tastefully decorated rooms and a lovely homely feel to it. The owners, although discreet, were always there for advice and gave us some great tips for restaurants in Cascais. We would definitely recommend this guest house to anyone. A... More

A very authentic place, looks more like a mansion than a hotel, all rooms are unique and there is a living room with a TV and a library, where you can come and have a coffee or a drink, just like you do it at home. Beautiful garden with a swimming pool, very nice breakfast. The internet is surprisingly fast.... More

The room was perfect, manager very helpful and the livingroom, breakfast area exclusive. The pool and the garden beautiful. Short distance to walk to the beautiful city and beach, not far from Lisboa. We enjoyed it very much.

Really impressed with this hotel. Friendly hosts with quality local knowledge. Lovely and quiet pool area. Gardens with frogs and fish that were a huge hit with our one year old. Big clean room with kitchenette. Jacuzzi bath and shower (in cinammon room) were great in huge bathroom. Short walk into Cascais itself, with no bar right beside it. It... More
