We have stayed at other Holiday Inns and booked on the basis that you know what to expect. This hotel was no different. It's clean, well decorated and the staff are pleasant and helpful. The restaurant is good, although a little lacking in imagination. I found the bed far too hard for my taste. The first room we were allocated... More

The positives - the staff (with one exception) were very good, the room was pleasant and spacious enough for two people with a very comfortable bed. However there was a choice of either a soft or a firm pillow, but only one of each - which as we both prefer firm was annoying. Unfortunately for us that was the end... More

The potuguese are fantastic and the staff here are outstanding as you will find across portugal but twice in succession now I have been let down by the IHG group who will probably blame it on local conditions. But to have a room service end at midnight is totally ridiculous. Also the internet connection in rooms is poor...whats the point?... More
