Beautifully situated, the comfortable large balconied rooms overlook the town, castle and superb museums. The hotel restaurant decorated with local mid winter festival masks is an absolute must. Culturally it bringing together the local wines and foods in a creative tour de force for the palet. The chef and staff really go out of their way to make a generous... More

I have to agree with bymy 141's summary, (except the coffee isn't that bad...!) and other reviewers comments that this Pousada falls short of expectations. - On the plus side: The welcome is warm and staff are attentive. The pool area is well organised, cooling and in a pleasant setting. The Pousada is well located for the national park and... More

The paint in the corridors was a mess & carpets were cheap. The room was a fair size but very basic, small bathroom with 2 cracks in the basin, poor hair... More

The kitchen is highly appreciated by reviewers so we decided to dine here and it was a great evening and experience. The number of amuses was no less than 5 and these... More

We are frequent users of Pousada`s and Parador`s on our way back and forth, but this was our first time here. It wont be our last though... We were attracted by its wonderful setting, the towns historical connection to... More

Lovely hotel in beautiful surroundings, beautiful view over Braganca and only a short walk (15 minutes) from the center. The hotel has a nice pool area. Try also the restaurant - lovely Portugisk food with a modern touch - great.

The building is a modern one bit a typical pousada but it lacks maintenance. The noise of the elevator can be listen in all the hotel. The rooms are clean and the bathrooms are clean and good size. The view to the castle and the city is very nice. Good parking. Friendly staff.
