We stayed here for one night during a tour of Galicia during February 2014. Make sure you follow the signs to the Pousada as you enter the town. The Pousada is perched on the hill over looking the River Minho with excellent and commanding views of Tui, Spain. Our only mistake was to arrive on 18th February when Valenca has... More

We have been staying every year for a few days at this Pousada, where we now feel quite at home and among friends. The location - inside the walls of the Medieval town - is great and the view over the river and to Spain is magnificent. We now benefit from special prices for senior guests, which makes the stay...

We decided to stay at this Pousada at short notice and booked directly on line through their web site. This gives the cheapest price that is available and is usually a good deal. It is also worth joining their hotel group reward scheme as this gives you both points and some discounts. The hotel has fantastic views across the river... More

My wife and I stayed here in October 2013. We found the stay to be incredible. The intriguing drive through the village to the pousada was a great start. The staff were most helpful and engaging. We stayed in room 111 and it was magnificent. The view across the grounds and the river to Spain was breathtaking. The walk across... More

Situated in the old fortress overlooking the river and onto Spain you feel you are on top of the world. The hotel is well presented. For a hotel of this standard I would expect wifi in the rooms and not just the public areas. The room was larger than many with a balcony looking toward Spain - an outstanding view.... More

The Pousada is in a walled hill-top town with wonderful views over the Minho river and valley, towards Spain. It's an interested place to get to by car! The route to the Pousada is well sign-posted and we found it first time, but the 4 narrow stone arched gates of the town are a bit hair-raising if you are in... More

Lovely setting inside the walled city, with breathtaking views across to Tui from my spacious and stylishly decorated bedroom. I missed a kettle and a small fridge in the room, and had to sit in the lounge to connect to their WiFi, but otherwise was really happy with this fine hotel. Breakfast was superb, but only served from 8am (... More

Last year we stayed across the river in Tui, Spain in an expensive hotel with no view or charm. This time we chose the Pousada implanted inside the Valenca fortress in Portugal, looking back toward Tui. No comparison for its fantastic view. It overlooks the Minho River and Eiffel Bridge, beautifully lit at night, a bit like a horizontal Tour... More

The views of the Minho river and Spain are amazing from this pousada! Plan on spending time to visit the fortress it's located inside. Only drawback - it needs some updating but, no other complaints!
