I stayed here for two nights as part of The White Rose Motorcycle Tours. The hotel acknowledged our tour by providing room key cards personalised for each of us. Each card had a photo of our bikes, all different. It made us feel somewhat special. The setting of the hotel, amid excellent biking roads is ideal for exploring the area.... More

An old TB sanatorium on the edge of the mountains high above the nearest town. Great drive in the surrounding countryside and a few walks closer to the hotel. Nice rooms and both indoor and outdoor swimming pools as well as a gym. Buffet dinners only ordinary.

This hotel is not actually in Covilha, it's about 5km. away from Covilha up a windy a mountain road ( R399 I think ) but it is well worth the trip.

We even managed to go to the Cherry festival in Alcongosta.... The hotel is fantastic and the service is 5stars... The breakfast as a great choice of food... More

The hotel is situated high in the Serra da Estrela. It was an old sanatorium but has been tastefully converted. The hotel still has a feel of the past, but the overall experience was excellent. The views were sensational.

This stop on our tour of Portuguese pousadas was a real bonus. We were due to be at the pousada in Viseu but we were moved to the Serra da Estrela because of a booking problem. This former TB hospital has been brilliantly and expensively modernised and we enjoyed 2 nights here. Our room -- a basic one -- was... More
