Visited with friends for a wedding locally - the hotel looked after us with great warmth and hospitality, and nothing was too much trouble. Very informal and relaxed, with mazing weather too. Rooms are newly refurbished, excellent quality, very comfortable and spotlessly clean - highly recommended!

What a Gem! One of the best hotels I have every stayed at! The service, hospitality, friendliness and the beauty of the location is second to none. The key here is to stay at least 3 days to truly enjoy everything this place has to offer. You will not be disappointed!

I stayed two nights at this hotel. Rooms were large and comfortable. Having a double bed, rather than two single beds put together, was particularly appreciated. There were a couple of issues. The electronic panel controlling the radio and music situated next to the bed glowed brightly at night, disturbing my sleep. There is apparently no way to switch it off. The staff could only suggest that I wedge a pillow in front of it, which solved the problem. Also, the wifi was not working during my stay, which the staff were very apologetic about. As others have stated, the breakfast provided is only just adequate for a hotel of this standard - it should be upgraded with more choices. On the positive side, I put some clothes in to be washed and was delighted to find that it was done without charge!

This hotel is a recently renovated mansion on the banks of the River Lima. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, breakfast is good and the staff are lovely. There is ample parking, bikes can be borrowed and gardens in which to relax. It’s in the centre of town but it doesn’t feel like it because it fronts onto the river.

We booked this hotel for one night as part of a trip around Northern Portugal and Galicia and it was much better value than the one we booked elsewhere for a subsequent night for a similar price. It is close to the Geres National Park and both the staff and the people in the town were very welcoming. We would have probably stayed there for a second night if we'd known it would have been this good.
