Located up the road from Bom Jesus, the Grande Hotel has nice views of the surrounding countryside. The staff were very accommodating and made us feel at home. Parking is provided but you can also park in the main road without any problems. Great place to enjoy the adjacent park and if you intend (must!) to visit Bom Jesus. Breakfast... More

A very pleasant experience with lovely people in a quiet and quaint hotel. If you want the ultimate hotel experience this isn't for you, but if you want clean accomodation, great view, friendly people, peace and quiet for a great price, this is a place to consider. We stayed two nights in early September to start a week in Oporto... More

We paid 49 euros for a double room at this 3 star hotel up a very windy road (N103) within walking distance of the Bom Jesus Cathedral. The room was clean, had amenities like a 4 star hotel, and had a balcony overlooking valley suburbs of Braga. The restaurant was closed except for breakfast but maybe because of this they... More

The hotel has all the features to be a good one. The location is very good, near the park and within a short pleasant walk from Bom Jesus. The staff of the hotel is very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast is fine (lacks some hot dishes like scrambles eggs but has wonderful pies). The panoramic view from the room and... More

Good hotel, huge rooms, large terrace, fantastic king size bed. Very happy to see clients. Located in national park above Braga with fantastic panaramic views. There are three restaurants near the hotel. There is no swimming pool but there are lots of place for sport in national park. Walking distance to Bom Jesus. Good value for money.

The attention is amazing, very friendly people in reception and breakfast who have the patience to explain everything you need to know. Location not so good if you want to be near city centre... it's at the top of mount Bom Jesus, but in the middle of nature if you want a romantic or quiet escapade. It's right across the... More

We arrived late afternoon on a rainy day in late September for a two night stay. There were no other cars parked in front of the hotel and most of the lights were off in the reception area. In the hallway to the room ALL the lights were off except the emergency exit lights. The room itself was adequately lighted... More

This review is very straightforward: terrible and spooky hotel. Despite the great location, everything else is terrible. When I read the reviews, probably I was not lucky, but definitely I would not recommend this hotel. Spoooooooooky.........

I stayed one night only on a business trip, I can't classified as a negative experience but there´s a lot of things to be improved in this hotel. Such as: - The rooms are wide, but the heating is not powefull enough to heat it. also the edcoration is very dated, I would say "classic decor"! The bathroom have the... More
