We arrived after 7pm after a long day on the Camino. The staff who welcomed us were brilliant and insisted on pouring us a beer before checking in and showing us to a beautiful room. It was only after this that we discovered they were holding back just for us. No fuss - just smiles and a warm welcome. If... More

This is a nice, beautiful little place in the middle of the city. Our room was the corner room on the second floor, with three french balconies, a huge bed and lovely colors. The breakfast is small but nice with bread, coffee, ham and cakes. I highly recommend this! The only problem is that it's next-door-neighbour to a church and... More

We stayed for two nights at this beautiful place and really enjoyed our time. The room was light, bright and cheerful. We had wonderful furniture and linen to match the experience. Everything was tastefully decorated, including the cafe/restaurant downstairs. More so than the building, the staff deserves a mention. Everyone was so so friendly, attentive and in a good mood....

We came across this fantastic boutique hotel by complete accident. What a charm it was. After a long days walk we arrived in late. The friendliness of the staff was immediately apparent. The room which overlooked the square,was really central and beautifully decorated. Real old world charm. Its a converted shop which is still in the ownership of the family.... More

This old fashioned centrally located grocery store has been in the family for 3 generations and the current owners (the founders grandson) decided to turn it into a B&B. The completely restored the whole building to meet modern standards, but with a keen eye for detail and a huge amount of respect for the buildings and their family's history. The... More

As well as all the other good qualities this place has the best food in Ponte de Lima. We had wonderful hot chocolate, and delicious tapas, two of which easily made a shared meal for two. A flaming chorizo is a pretty exciting taste. The breakfast was outstanding. I just wish I had room for those wonderful cakes.

I found Mercearia by accident, I went looking for somewhere else and happened on this fantastic place to stay. I was tired from walking all day on the Camino, so to find it, right in the heart of the town and all it has to offer, was a major relief. The welcome was warm and friendly. The room was lovely,...

If you visit Ponte de Lima you must stay at this beautiful, little hotel. The welcome you receive is SO friendly and the rooms are so romantic. Our room had beautiful big windows with old shutters and a view of the River Lima. The room was so light and spacious and had a welcoming, big double bed! We looked upstairs... More

This little inn is in the middle of town, in the square. The room was on the second floor overlooking the square. The room was large and spacious. There was a kitchen on the first floor which was handy to keep the wine cold in the refrigerator. The room also had bottled water and a coffee making machine. The breakfast... More

We cycled the Portuguese camino and stayed here for one night - only regret was that it wasn't for two nights. The room was beautifully decorated in white with floor to ceiling windows overlooking a square. The house felt very homely and a real sense that someone had put a lot of care and attention into every detail. The village... More
