The pousada at Obidos has a great location in the castle and as part of the town walls. The views are fantastic and the town is very atmospheric - a must see.
We were a little disappointed with the pousada bedroom that we had - to us it was small, poorly lit and difficult for phone chargers etc, but perhaps that's the price of being in an old castle. Internet access was sporadic, and the small parking area was a challenge for me but perhaps not others.
The restaurant and waiters were great - we had a very happy family dinner and several very good breakfasts with attentive staff.
Overall I don't think you could stay here at Obidos and be unhappy - but don't plan to be in your room more than necessary.
