I was worried when booking our trip that the hotel wouldn't live up to the excellent reviews that have been posted on TripAdvisor. I shouldn't have worried, the hotel and the staff far exceeded my expectations, and any negative review on this site doesn't do them justice. The hotel is beautiful. The rooms, from the lounges to the smoking room,... More

This is a gorgeous hotel. The feeling when you walk in is one of class and taste. The public rooms are warm and inviting, richly furnished and appointed. It is perfectly situated, with a spectacular view over the river and onto the Amarante church square. Access from the hotel into Amarante and some great restaurants is very easy on foot.... More

Great hotel and location, excellent and great value for money. Our stay was generally great and relaxing. Breakfast however was a massive let down. Hot items served out of old saucepans on a hot plate, unremarkable scrambled egg and limited hot food, shuffling about queuing to self-cook your toast and get tea and juice, not very dignified. Staff generally miserable... More

We had a really luxurious stay and were well taken care of by the staff. We also ate three times in their brilliant Michelin-starred restaurant. Reception staff always keen to help with advice and guidance. Not far from the Douro Valley wine region. We travelled there by car but there's a train station in Amarante so I expect you can...

This hotel is located in the town center. This large, old building is extremely well decorated and has been renewed recently. It is a excelent option for a relaxed weekend. And please.....don't miss the oportunity to hace dinner in the one star michelin restaurant. The 8 course menu is well worth the price.

Great old hotel, beside the river and overlooking the old medieval town of Amarante in the Douro Valley of Portugal. Excellent restaurant, with a Michelin star. Buffet breakfast is included. Dinner is spectacular - local specialties and excellent wines from the area and other Portuguese and European locations. Outdoor swimming pool, and well stocked reading room.
