Deciding to have a luxury overnight stay we chose this Pousada. Being situated inside the fortress, means driving through the many narrow archways but there is parking at the Pousada. On arrival, we were offered an upgrade, which included a river view as well as a balcony and for those smokers this is a boon! Our upgrade was with the... More

This Pousada is a wonderful place to stay and relax with great views over into Spain and excellent food. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, putting up with my fledgling Portuguese! I would recommend this Pousada to anyone wanting a fabulous experience in N. Portugal.

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

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Pousada de Valenca opened in 1962, a project by architect Joao de Mello Breyner Andresen. This Pousada embraces the Vale do Rio Minho from the green Portuguese banks to the Galician progress which involves the Tui cathedral. Situated on the frontier with Spain on top of the historical centre and the fortified Valenca, the Pousada of Sao Teotonio has a magnificent view of the neighbouring lands resting on the town's walls, where you can feel the harmony of nature in an idyllic setting. This hotel in Valenca is characterized by its welcoming aspect, with its grand fireplaces which stand out in the drawing room. Guests can visit in Valencia several points of interest such as the church of Santa Maria dos Anjos, the House of Eirado or the Church of Santo Estevao. ... more   less
