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.

We spent a week here and enjoyed every minute. What great value for money. The service was superb, the bedroom beautiful, the housekeeping top notch, the breakfast awesome. The pool and gardens were lovely. A real retreat. We had one dinner in the Micheline star restaurant. Brilliant. You just have to do it. The waitresses were so good. Efficient, pleasant... More

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.

Stayed in December, when all the christmas lights were up in the town, very festive. Booked into an executive room, which was lovely but did not have a view so upgraded for £15 per night to a bigger well appointed room with a beautiful view of the river. Lovely breakfasts, Mitchelin star restaurant, which was lovely, small portions but lots... More

A great three nights we spent here. Weather was lovely and hotel super. Went into Porto one day on the bus. An experience!. Restaurant excellent. Staff could not be more helpful though sometimes their directions on where to go in the Douro were difficult to understand. Suggest they produce a suggested itinerary and a map!

We booked this place as a bargain break 3 nights for £199 pp including breakfasts and a Michelin Starred dinner and flights from Birmingham. At that price We weren't expecting much, maybe a hotel of faded glory, a room at the back and a cheap dinner. But not a bit of it. The hotel was extremely smart with classy fabrics,... More

Although we booked on a bargain break, the service could not be faulted in any way, from valet parking to superb bedroom staff. The day's started with full stomachs after excellent breakfasts, so much choice and anything we wanted it seemed. The bedroom was well laid out and serviced twice a day. Front of house staff were extremely helpful with... More

Looking at the other reviews 5 star I think there is little I can add to them. Absolutely fabulous Michelin-starred food, great and friendly service, comfortable beds in well decorated rooms; all excellent. The town interesting but not of itself outstanding, it is not actually on the Douro river valley, but the drive there was magnificent. A peaceful and gastronomic... More
