“Superb second visit!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2011

Arrived here after an easy journey from Lisbon to be met by Ruth, who is a wonderful bubbly girl full of information and eager to please and help. She showed us to our large clean comfortable bedroom and although no air-con the room felt lovely and cool as the windows had been fitted with fine mesh fly screens and were therefore open and shutters which could be used to keep the direct sunlight out.
We last stayed 3 years ago and we were pleased that everything was as we remembered it. The lounge was large and very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The continental breakfast was really good with different rolls, breads,fresh pineapple, cheeses ham and yes chocolate cake!!!
The pool area is very relaxing and the water was not too cold. After a hot day out sightseeing it was nice to go for a dip. Afterwards we would go and sit at the front of the property ( with views looking over Obidos) and catch the late sun and as the property is licensed, have a few beers!!
It is worth mentioning, that the owners also have the most fantastic restaurant in Obidos called Petrarum Domus. The food we had there was excellent and the interior is just that little bit differant, especially upstairs. It is basically open plan with a small bridge joining the two sides.
All in all a perfect 5 days and would definately come back again. Probably staying even longer this time!!

We had a very nice visit to Obidos, and loved this hotel. Rute was a wonderful hostess, and gave us some very good restaurant recommendations for places just a few km away. The room was clean, and we enjoyed the pool and just sitting outside at the front hotel. Very good breakfast. We also enjoyed the quiet. I will note that our GPS was not very helpful, nor were Google's directions. It would be a good idea to get the GPS coordinates and find the hotel that way.

We enjoyed our 3 nights in one of the self catering apartments, though breakfasts, which were very nice were included. The gardens were lovely, the pool area clean and comfortable, and the staff was very helpful. We could have used a little better lighting in the kitchen and living room. The bedroom and bath were great rooms.

A pleasant surprise for those visiting Obidós, Portugal. The inn was situated about a 5 minute drive from the walls of Obidós and you can even see the city from the porch! They have lovely rooms, helpful staff, and a hearty continental breakfast. It's very quiet - it could feel too quiet for some - you feel that you need to talk in whispers even at breakfast. The staff while helpful, were a little subdued. Very clean! Free parking! Internet access in rooms via cables - (no wireless) and there is a computer w/internet in the great room. There's a pool table as well. Pool looked inviting and well-kept. Entrance is marked, but not quite big enough to keep you from missing it the first time around! You do need a car to stay here and you can get some basic supplies at the gas station right down the road.

Farmhouse type accommodation with enthusiastic welcome and great staff attention. Immaculately clean and pleasant room. Great pool and garden area to relax round. I thought the breakfast included in the room rate was good with fresh pineapple and squeezed orange juice. A bit too far out of Obidos to walk but only 10 minutes in the car or 5 Euro taxi. Free parking in the grounds and excellent base with a nearby motorway junction to explore the surrounding area and beach resorts.

We stayed at this family owned and operated 'hotel' for one night and loved it. It's more of a B&B actually. We opted for the Spring Package that included room, dinner for two at a restaurant in Obidos, a quick 3 minute drive from hotel, and a bottle of Ginja at checkout. Room had no ac but in late May, screened windows open, all was good. Free on-site parking and great swimming pool area. Breakfast was so-so. If our travels ever bring us back to Obidos, this is the place.
