This is a perfect half way stop for us between Santander and lower Portugal (Alantejo area). We’ve stopped 3 times before and this year (June 2013) it was 48€ for B&B for us both. Its only 10minutes from the motorway and it’s had a little of a refurbishment, I’ve reviewed it before but again we had the most beautiful towels... More

We stayed for one night and thoroughly enjoyed the modern, spacious room on the 3rd floor with a full glass wall providing stunning views over the surrounding countryside (i.e. at the back of the hotel). "Informed Traveller" has recently provided a very comprehensive review but I will add a few extra comments. If arriving by car, the hotel is easy... More

This hotel would be a good place at a somewhat higher price; at the price we paid (which as far as we know was no special deal) it is truly a gem. The hotel is very close to the top of the hill on which the “old quarter” of Guarda is built - origignally a fortified hill fort, of which... More

This is a nice modern hotel with very good facilities, clean, quiert & with large well appointed rooms. The food is first class as is the service & the location is fine if you want to visit the old town or just spend a night as a stopover. Value was also very good. Will use again on our nxt visit.

Stayed overnight on the way from Santander to Lisboa, this is an amazing hotel for the price and our second stay as its between 5-6 hours drive, so a perfect place to break, it’s fairly near the motorway slightly tricky to find, although my sat-nav took me straight there. The rooms are very large for a hotel of this class,... More

I stayed for 2 nights at this hotel and the first positive impression lasted during my stay. You can not ask too much of a 3 star hotel but the staff at the reception have a five star quality. Always eager to help and providing useful information. The room was very large and with mountain view. Guarda is a very... More

This is a very nice hotel, quiet modern and confortable, very clean and with efficient soundproof. The hotel is located at Guarda (a bit far from city centre if you are on foot, 5 min by car) at 30 min by car from Serra da Estrela and close enough to several historical and tipical villages like Sortelha, Belmonte, Trancoso...
