Hotel: The room was spacious, with a lovely view direction the Castel. Everything was clean and nicely prepared. Service: Especially at the reception very service oriented and friendly. In the restaurant the level of the waiters could be more equal, there are really good ones and a few who could speed up and open their eyes. Restaurant: The two brothers...

My wife and I stayed here for one night at the start of a car tour of northern Portugal. The hotel is vey easy to find. It's a purpose-built hotel, named after the hill on which it is built, looking across a steep valley toward Braganca citadel - about 600 metres horizontally, but quote a challenging although enjoyable walk!

This modern hotel sits on a ridge overlooking the old walled town of Braganca. It has a small but delightful swimming pool in the garden.

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...

I was very disappointed with this hotel, I have stayed at many paradores in Spain & expected something similar with a pousada in Portugal, but there was no comparison. 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...
