We had a lovely stay. Very impressed with the staff, who were so charming and helpful. This establishment is extremely well located. OUr room was at the front, but certainly not noisy and had lovely large windows which we could look out onto the quiet narrow street. Would highly recommend

We arrived after midnight and were welcomed with a swift efficient check-in. Really needed after such a late arrival. We had booked a room facing the courtyard as we had read that other rooms could be noisy with street sounds. Our room was incredibly quiet - we slept soundly for our full stay. The room was big and clean. Functional... More

Flight times from London now mean a midnight arrival and we left next day for Terceira. We had pre-arranged for a sandwich and tea on arrival (knowing how bad Sata food is). We were not disappointed. The beef sandwich, cake and tea were a meal in themselves and helped very much to welcome us.

Ideally located 10 minutes from the marina and whale watching boats. Nice buffet breakfast with plenty of choice. Room was large and clean. Area around the outdoor pool needed a good scrub after the winter though.

This a very well-located hotel, with attractive facilities, a friendly staff and good breakfast. It also offers free parking in a small, underground garage, but getting in and out of the street level entrance (a lift that lowers and raises your car) is extremely hazardous. After losing my right side-view mirror trying to squeeze into the space, the attendant offered... More

The hotel is in a good central location in a historic building. Standard rooms are adequately equipped and good size but on the street which can be noisy. Good shower pressure.
