#5 of 16 B&Bs / Inns in Braganca
The Old Bridge Mill is a new building, made from the original foundations of the water mill that once grinded the grain to the city of Bragança and the surrounding area. Sound of the Sabor River stream to pass straight ahead The house and the chirping of the birds to play by the imposing Amieiros near the river, make this hotel a very pleasant place. Be sure to visit!

We booked this hotel for 2 nights but couldn't actually get to it on our Motorcycles! The hotel is tucked down near a river & to access it you need to travel about 250 Meters down a loose thickly graveled road, then a further 400m or so down a very steep gravelled narrow driveway followed by a 360 degree hairpin!! I was leading & committed myself to the driveway before realising just how bad it was. With no way to turn around I had to go to the bottom but really struggled to get back up without dropping the bike. My Wifes bike just buried its front wheel in the gravel & refused to budge any further, badly scaring her. To add to this there was no one there when we arrived despite them being aware of our arrival time. We rang several times & waited about an hour in the blazing sunshine before someone eventually rang us back. The woman on the phone spoke only basic English but admitted the drive was 'dangerous' ! I wish they'd advertised this fact on their website. The only accommodation we could get at this late stage was an Ibis in the town so overall it was a massive let down.

we were really looking forward to staying in an old water mill, first we had a lot of trouble finding the place, the sat nav had trouble too. its so tucked away, there is a very steep path down to the B&B, which could be a problem for some people, inside its all very modern, the lady showed us our room, which was fine. the breakfast wasn't very good, and the internet only worked in the main lounge area, and not in our room. we had 2 nights here, on the second night the fire alarm went off at 3.30, as the caretaker doesn't live at the B&B my husband called her, another guest by now had re-set the alarm, we were grateful that there wasn't a fire, but we thought she should have come out herself to check. We were disappointed with this B&B.

The location beside this peaceful river (Sabor) is great. It is probably the hotel with the best style and taste in town. A beautiful restoration of an old mill. Staff is deliciously nice and attentive, even in the cautious preparation of your espresso. Rooms have good heating and excellent sanitary installations. I'll go back there if I ever come back to Bragança by car If you have car-loads full of luggage, the stairways up and down can be cumbersome. But they help you with it

This B&B is really nice. The shared kitchen, living room and garden were perfect for us as we have a baby with us that needed to play and rest. Rooms are comfortable, breakfast is excellent and staff is very friendly and helpful. Internet connection in the shared space works fine. Parking is available, but it's easier to park just near the road. The hotel is easy to find when you follow the instructions from the hotel that tell you to continue to drive on the gravel road. The location is perfect if you appreciate being in a quiet spot. It's a nice area to have a walk. When you want to go to the city, you'll need the car though.

My wife and I spend two nights in this hotel and were very much impressed! This is a very modern style hotel inside of an old windmill. The decor is superb. The owner speaks Spanish and English. Very quiet and relaxing, with alot of space outside. The rooms are big and comfortable. Spotless clean. Highly recommended! Better to call the owner to be picked-up from the nearest IBIS hotel, because at the first time it it not easy to find this perfect place.
