I couldn't believe how good this gem of a hotel turned out to be. Hotels in Cascais get mobbed for the moto GP weekend and prices rocket, but we seemed to book this one just at the right time and paid a good price.
We got a very nice reception with a lady who had fantastic English and couldn't do enough for us. The night porter was just the same. This hotel turns out to be a 400 year old manor house that would have been built for a local dignitry at the time.
The location is ideal, close to everything - beach, bars, restaurants and shopping, but just far enough away so that it was extremely peaceful.
We even got a couple of glasses of complimentary port on the second evening which was a nice touch.
I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
We did get ripped off by the Taxi from Lisbon to Cascais though, should have been 40 and the chap charged us 60. We didn't know any better at the time.
