A most unusual hotel just off the centre of Porto. Easy access to town walking downhill and metro - 100 metres from the hotel (or taxi - not expensive) back. Set in large gardens with plenty of outside seating, this hotel makes a great base from which to explore Porto. Added to this, there is free on-site parking and a... More

We enjoyed our stay here. The staff was very helpful upon arrival. We stayed in the tower which had a wonderful view and our room was very regal. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the Marques station and it was an easy trip to the city center. There are lots of steps, but keep in mind you are... More

We recently spent 10 days in this beautiful hotel and experienced a place that gives individual attention and very high standards. The staff were all friendly and very knowledgable and spoke excellent English. This coupled with the back drop of a unique building and beautiful garden made our holiday a very pleasant experience. We stayed in the garden room, which... More

This hotel was one the high lights of our 40th anniversary trip. We booked in advance after reading the reviews on trip advisor and we were not disappointed. We reserved a room in the tower and it was excellent. This hotel has loads of ambiance, the floors, wood work, furnishings take you back to the nineteenth century but with all... More

a quirky and charming 'folly' with great gardens. Only problem is the fornt stairs are difficult to navigate with heavy bags. We had help inside to carry the bags to the third floor, but not to get into the garden in the first place. Staff were helpful and breakfast was wonderful.

Definitely not for the mobility impaired but such a little jewel. If you love antiques and to be spoiled by the attentive young men at the desk and a great included breakfast this is the place to be. This was a last minute reservation for us in Porto, our first room was very nice and the all marble bathroom was... More

What an amazing place to stay! This hotel has quite a history, and some of the rooms in the main house are decorated with some amazing furniture, some of which was acquired as the established families left Portugal after the revolution in 1974-5. The ornate decor makes you feel like you are staying in a small palazzo, and the balconies... More
