The place is really charming, located on the top of the Serra da Estrela, and the views and landscapes are really astonishing. Great time there. The restaurant is not specially cheap but with great quality. Maybe there is a lack of staff but the ones there were really kind, special mention to Aurora, the recepcionist

Arriving at the hotel, we were charmed by the stunning view over the Valley. But and a big but this hotel is NOT for summer stays. Our main gripe was the lack of Air Conditioning in the Guest rooms as promised on the Pousada.pt website. It was too hot to sleep at night - we even tried sleeping with the... More

My husband and I spent two night at the Pousada and loved every minute of it. When we first arrived we were given a warm welcome by George. He could not have done more. We had a lovely room with a beautiful view. We ate in the restaurant both nights and the food was excellent. The waitresses were incredible, sweet... More

Arrived in mid March 2013 after a late snow storm covered the roads and landscape in white. What a welcome sight - an historic mountain inn, warm and safe for the night. Many a traveler must have felt that way. Room was comfortable and large. Service friendly and efficient. Dining room food and service very good. There is nothing in... More

We were in our route to Serra da Estrela which was very hard since the hill is full of tiny curves and took us more time than we expected to arrive. So we got there about 19:00h and we left the followed morning. The weather was extremely cold up there, seems to be a nice skiing spot.

Stayed from Sunday to Monday so hotel was almost empty. It was a nice cozy well heated hotel with very nice views of the mountains and the town of Manteigas. We asked for a double room + baby cot and got a nice room with view to Manteigas (we stayed in room 209). Room was very clean and comfortable. Bed... More

My husband and I toured through Portugal in October 2011 for our honeymoon, and stayed in 5 or 6 hotels throughout the course of the trip. This pousada was my absolute favorite of any of the places we stayed. The staff and the service they provided were absolutely top-notch, and the location and surroundings were unique and relaxing.

We stayed here for one night before heading to the Douro River for a weeks stay. It was certainly a tortuous drive to the Pousada but fortunately the weather was good and the views are excellent both from the rooms and from the perfectly-located dining-room. We had already decided to have dinner in the dining room but it would have... More

The main attraction of the Pousads of Portugal is the uniqueness of the view or the pousada's building. So, if staying in a special place is not your main goal, other cheaper hotels in Manteigas will fulfil your expectation better. The Manteigas Pousada offers a fascinating view over Manteigas and the Zezere valley and a special rock-stone made building, as... More

Too far up the mountain. Nothing up there, unless, you have one of the small terraces, which we didn't. I am sure those are more expensive. There is a trail that you could walk. sort of pleasant, but would be 5 hour walk of the same scenery. decor was charming (old - lodge type),nothing special. rooms and linens were immaculate... More
