Had two rooms for our family - one in the old tower and one in main castle. Rooms were lovely and spotless. Ours did have some noise from the kitchen but not excessive. Staff very helpful and kind. Restaurant was good but expensive by Portugese standards. Excellent breakfast buffet included.One caution - driving through Obidos is harrowing. You must pass...

The hotel itself is in a magnificent location, although if you are driving be prepared for some interesting times! The restaurant is very good and the service was excellent. We had some concerns about driving through the very small gates into and out of the town walls, but Sergio came with us and showed us that, while challenging, it could...

The five of us drove a 7 passenger van from Lisbon. The trip advisor reviews warned of the narrow portals and lanes in the village.

Having visited Obidos several years ago, we decided to finish our Pousadas trip with two nights in a superior castle room. We'd left our car in the car park before the arched entrance to Obidos, and were really delighted when Joao of the reception staff took our keys to bring it through the tight arch and past the many tourists....

We stayed in the 1700's house part of the castle in a small room, but for the experience of a historic hotel, it was worth it, and very lovely. (We'd gotten used to frosted glass windows/walls in the bathroom by this point!) Three great memories: 1. My husband received a "World's Best Driver Award" for his ability to navigate through...

Our stay was phenomenal. From the moment we arrived until the very last second, each and every employee at the castle truly treated us like royalty. It is evident, in the way they carry themselves, and treat their guests - that all of the employees are proud of the castle and take incense pride in working there. We truly couldn't...
