My wife and I decided to go for a two-day trip to the North of Portugal and I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to stay at a well-known "Pousada". Pousadas in Portugal are known for their exclusive locations and high-class service. They are a part of the local history. One would expect other elements to follow such a... More

The room is a good size and the restaurant is wonderful. Went back to the hotel in the early afternoon after exploring the area only to find the sitting room-bar-fireplace completely booked until dinner with a children's party. No advance warning giving to hotel guests and you couldn't access the lounge area until late that night. We had wanted to... More

Classical Pousada facing the castle in Braganca that is beautifully lit at night. Rooms, lounge and restaurant overlook the castle. Particular highlight is the food served in the restaurant - Oscar Goncalves is the chef - a young man with real talent. He can be found as https://www.facebook.com/oscar.geadas?fref=ts on Facebook. Stayed at the hotel with a few members of my... More

This pousada has amazing views of the town and historic walled city of Braganca. The rooms are wonderful, clean, comfortable, with all amenities. The lounge area was inviting with a lovely fire, and the restaurant is superb. What made it very special, however, was the wonderful attention and advice of Sr. Antonio, who took the time to chart an itinerary... More

Visiting this posada as part of an extensive motorbike tour of Spain and Portugal, we found it to be excellent in every way. The rooms were comfortable, the staff were friendly and unobtrusively efficient and the two brothers who manage it are obviously determined to ensure a great experience for all their guests. Attention to detail was spot on, including... More

We spent two nights at this posada on our way back to Santander after travelling through Spain and Portugal. I agree with the last two reviews and we were most impressed with the attention to detail, both with regard to our room and more especially with dinner in the evenings. Both brothers, who we understand took over the running of... More

Whilst travelling around Portugal and having booked with Brittany Ferries we were pleased to find this Pousada after a long drive from Santander. Spacious bedroom with superb views. Comfortable beds and clean bathroom. Ample breakfast, buffet style. We walked into the town for an evening meal on both evenings. The Castle is interesting to visit and looks stunning in the...

Stayed here as two couples travelling round northern Portugal and Galicia. The Pousada is up the hill on the southern side of the city and easy to find from the centre. We were warmly greeted by the reception staff and shown to our rooms overlooking the city, its castle and church and the swimming pool. The room was large and... More

For anyone undecided about visiting Braganca we suggest you do. Not only is the city impressive but a stay in this old but modernised Pousada alone makes the trip worthwhile.

At 5 am I woke up. Walked out on the terrace and viewed the sun rise over the old city of Braganca. Fantastic! The hotel is old in style, but well maintained, clean and friendly. Room was spacious, bed comfy and bathroom up to par. Breakfast was good and staff friendly. Recommended. (Braganca is a nice town worth a visit... More
