We stayed for 3 nights in peak August, and we're really impressed. Our rooms on the 3rd floor, a Privilege (319) and a Classic room (320) were lovely: the Privilege room was particularly comfortable, with a huge bathroom and lots of light from dual aspect windows, with treetop views. The staff were always helpful and the service was great, in... More

Hotel is beautiful, rooms very tidy and nicely decorated. Beautiful dining room and top food, also the breakfast offers a great choice. Stuff very friendly and helpful. We took a massage in the spa, used saunas and outdoor swimming area - all worth a recommendation

When one arrives, easily a "wow" is unavoidable. The hotel is in a beautiful location, in a park and is a perfect example of recovery and maintenance of a building of the beginning of the XX century. Entering in the restaurant is travelling in time 100 years. But, once seated, you'll be able to appreciate a modern menu, of good... More

We booked this hotel last minute and were looking for somewhere family friendly for our 3year old. As we come through the entrance we were a little worried that our boisterous 3 year old was going to upset the apple art. Thankfully we came on a Wednesday and it was wonderfully quiet. The hotel staff were more than helpful and... More

I used to go to the Vidago Palace Hotel a child 50 years ago. It's a place I have great memories of. So visiting again was a risk....but it's still great, it's still has the elegance that I remember and it has definitely been restored to its former glory. The food a the restaurant was excellent, public areas worthy of... More

Having stumbled over this hotel in my search for an "up country" hotel while on a list to Oporto, I was very pleasantly surprised. Located on the outskirts of a little village, this splendid mansion, once a royal palace, has been carefully converted into a world class hotel. I visited with my wife and friends from Australia in early June.... More

Overall and excellent stay. The hotel itself is quite imposing approaching the driveway to the main house by a large ornate fountain. Upon arriving staff were immediately ready to assist with luggage and a fast and easy check in was made followed by a brief but helpful tour of the hotels main features. We stayed in pone of the larger... More
