We recently spent 5 nights at this hotel. I had contacted them on one or two points before we left. I got a very quick reply and everything I had asked for was in place on arrival. Reception was always efficient, possibly a it brusque at times. The food here was not great as other reviewers have mentioned, but is... More

This was our second hotel in the Lisbon area. The room was very large, and had an excellent view across the sea (which we paid for). The breakfast choice is good, but some of the hot food was cold. The dining area is big and busy, and the personal touch is lacking. The outside bar area is good, but the... More

A sea side room view is wonderful, but it is not enjoyable if your stuck with people smoking on the balcony next to you or above or below. It was horrible that we could seldom enjoy the view from the balcony because our European neighbor's smoked! The pool is a very nice setting, if you love the aroma of the... More

Vile Gale is a perfectly located hotel 5 mins from town centre, and on seafront - ideal for long strolls along prom. The rooms were comfy - decor is a little dark but that seems to give it a cooler feel. Peacocks/hens strolling around the dining room patio at breakfast time was an added attraction. The pool area was excellent... More

The location is very good, but it looks and feels like an old hotel. The breakfast is just plain normal. Not much space to park the car. The junior suites near the elevators with view to the garden shouldnt be available. You can ear the elevator noise in the room. And the elevators is one more sign the hotel needs... More

Located close (walking distance) to the town center and just 2 mins away from the Marina, the Vila Gale Cascais Hotel offers good value. The rooms were good as was the food. The breakfast was also good but very busy. The are also apartment type rooms where you get a small kitchenette. The service was good, the staff was attentive... More

we spent one night here when our hotel of choice was booked. a bit of a walk from the center, uphill, but the room we were given was very nice. Large with a balcony and a sitting area for 175 euro. We didnt spend much time in the hotel but just based on the room I liked it.

On first impressions this is a lovely hotel, however we arrived at 3.30 to find rooms not ready and not a very nice receptionist told us to wait by the pool, on going back we were pushed to the back of the queue and still had to wait, the room was lovely, balcony disgusting dusty and dirty, food in the...

Class hotel, very quiet, very good breakfast, very friendly personnel, very relaxed pool atmosphere and more than enough space around the pool. About 20 munutes to walk to the railway station where you can take the train to Lisbon.
