The lobby of the posada seems to be popular for those staying in the hotel and those visiting the medieval town of Valenca. Step out onto the verandas and be dazzled by the wonderful views. We saw a lone horse in the grassy moat, as well. Beautiful rooms, and a wonderful location.

We stayed here for 1 night at the end if August. With a complimentary welcome drink in hand we upgraded to a room with a private balcony and a fabulous view over the river. The room itself was stunning, with good storage and a luxurious bathroom. We had dinner in the Pousada which was really tasty and beautifully served, though...

This is a lovely property within the fortress walls.  I had room 109 on the second level overlooking the Socorro Bastion, the river and the town of Tui, across the river in Spain.    There is no lift, but the staff  helps with luggage.   It has a balcony with two chairs and a table.  Their dinner was excellent and I especially enjoyed...

Pousada hotels are incredible! Our goal is to stay in all of the hotels they offer. We often travel from Portugal to Spain and this hotel was geographically perfect as it lies on the the border. Room was a 10. Food was a 10. The view was a 10.

Understated luxury in a magnificent setting. The food was delicious and the staff excellent 😄 Service at the bar was with a smile. Special thanks to Filipe whose knowledge of the area and the history of Portugal was excellent in addition to patiently answering outlet questions

We stayed there for one nicht travelling from Spain to Porto and it was a good choice. We had a room with an excellent view over the river Minho to Spain. Our room was spacious, clean and very quite (nearly no trafic in Valença after dinner time). As the fortress of Valença is really small everything is very close -...

The price we paid for really very good accommodation with a balcony and sweeping views of the river and Tuy was way below the normal rate and included breakfast. I think there were only a few guests which may explain why. The hotel situated within the fortress could not be better placed although everything within the walls seems to close...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Pousada de Valenca opened in 1962, a project by architect Joao de Mello Breyner Andresen. This Pousada embraces the Vale do Rio Minho from the green Portuguese banks to the Galician progress which involves the Tui cathedral. Situated on the frontier with Spain on top of the historical centre and the fortified Valenca, the Pousada of Sao Teotonio has a magnificent view of the neighbouring lands resting on the town's walls, where you can feel the harmony of nature in an idyllic setting. This hotel in Valenca is characterized by its welcoming aspect, with its grand fireplaces which stand out in the drawing room. Guests can visit in Valencia several points of interest such as the church of Santa Maria dos Anjos, the House of Eirado or the Church of Santo Estevao. ... more   less
