We stayed here this past October. Getting to the hotel turned out to be half the fun. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were spacious and very nice with beautiful view from the window over the river to Spain . Good breakfast and dinner. Also, when we left I managed to leave behind my raincoat. We called the...

Stayed 3 days in a spacious, very comfortable room with balcony. The views over the river Minho into Spain are truly magnificent, both from our room and from the dining room, bar and lounges of the hotel. The hotel has only 18 rooms, but the public rooms on the ground floor are very spacious and welcoming as well as the... More

Second stay here & loved it again. Loved driving into & thru the fort to find this hidden gem of a hotel at the end. Room with balcony & view over the water to Spain, just terrific. Quiet & relaxing, great walking areas in the fort as well as in the little local streets with little shops. Dinner was great... More

The hotel is located at a breathtaking location with views that are great at any time of the day (provided no fog....). The interior is a bit old fashioned but offers a pleasant atmosphere. The sofas in the lounges are a bit saggy. WiFi signal is weak in many locations so one has to look for a place where you... More

We drove through the various archways in the old town with some trepidation - some of the archways are very narrow - and enchantment at the attractiveness of the town. The atmosphere in the Pousada was peaceful and calm, the bedrooms were quite spacious and the welcome was sincere and helpful. We enjoyed a lovely dinner looking out over the... More

This is an excellent hotel in an unrivalled location within the city walls of the ancient fortress. We stayed in lovely room with beautiful views accross the Minho River and the Spanish town of Tui on the opposite bank. The staff were very friendly and helpful and joined us up to their loyalty programme which gave us an unexpected 5%... More

Perfect place to relax. Nice location, to visit the region including Spain. Very efficient and friendly staff always available and ready to help. At the restaurant you have to try the typical soup Caldo Verde and some Douro house wine. Careful with restaurants in the Fortress, expensive and low quality.

This was our second stay at this Pousada and this time we were upgraded to a room with a balcony overlooking the river and Spain. The gentleman on the front desk was very helpful and took the time to look up our Pousada card number. A good breakfast. Last time we were forced by the torrential rain to eat dinner... More

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.
