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.

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.

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.

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
