Good location, restaurant closed, room needs new tv and bed, nice staff, parking in front free. If we want to eat something, we need to go out of the hotel. Many restaurants options near. Ask for options in the reception.

Stayed here for 5 nights as part of a group booking with a choir “on tour”. We were lucky enough to have a balcony with splendid views of the hills and the church opposite; the only drawback being that with the window/door open, the smoke from people smoking on the bar/terrace below drifted up into the room. Our room was a reasonable size and fairly comfortable and the bathroom was well equipped with a “rain shower” over the bath; always plenty of hot water. The servicing of the room was excellent and efficient. With regard to breakfast, whilst there was a large selection the quality was generally poor and the coffee hardly worth bothering about. This, coupled with the unfriendly, unhelpful attitude of the breakfast staff, rather let the hotel down, as did the poor quality of our final group evening meal, again with unhelpful service. The hotel is well placed just on the edge of this attractive, friendly village with it’s green spaces, cobbled streets with whitewashed houses, attractive squares, good selection of bars, cafes and restaurants, public drinking fountains with the untainted local mineral water which apparently led the village to attracting “spa visitors” in the past. Highlight has got to be the walk up to the old castle (steep!) where you are rewarded with great views across the surrounding countryside of the Alentejo region as well as across to nearby Spain.

Stayed here for 5 nights as base for a choir tour of the Alentejo region. Quite a large reasonably well-equipped hotel with decent sized bedrooms - all marble floors and c.1970 decor. Large dining room - open fire on chilly evenings - bar, swimming pool terrace. Bear in mind that this is a long way west of Lisbon close to the Spanish border and very much natural park / fortified hilltop town territory. Excellently located in the heart of the village close to shops / restaurants etc. Bedroom equipped with old but beautiful hand-painted furniture. Plenty of cupboard space. Electrics slightly eccentric but able to charge devices. Decent sized bathroom with bidet - overbath shower but plenty of hot water. I didn't have a balcony but most of the couples in the party did. Get one of these if you can - they are really spendid overlooking the pool terrace below and wonderful view east out beyond the town to the valley / hillside beyond. Splendid breakfast buffet most days with good choice of hot and cold foods. Variety of fruit seemed to wane mid-week but recovered spectacularly when the motocross team which the hotel chain sponsors took up residence!! Excellent staff - good english spoken at reception despite UK visitors being a rarity. Downsides - limited wifi - not in bedrooms unless you were lucky! but no great hardship sitting in the comfortable reception area; Pool didn't open until 10 am so too late for those going out and about - also not heated so dubious in October; Bar often closed but plenty of other options very close by!. This beautiful town - and the whole region - is well worth visiting - delightful hilly cobbled streets, whitewashed buildings, castles, churches - excellent low-priced cafes, restaurants and bars. However you could have problems if you have walking difficulties

It looks like an old palace with large, wide corridors, very beautiful. Well located location allows walking to visit the village on foot. Friendly reception. Price per night very good. Less positive aspects, are the rooms, despite a very large area, feature a very rudimental bathroom, iron furniture with huge wear and antiquity, a strong smell of building from the 19th century. Breakfast very weak, almost no variety and no replenishment.

This is a cosy old hotel that needs a deep renovation but keeps its charm. Located in a small town, the hotel is walking distance from the castle and the fort, which are nice to see. The staff is very kind and helpful and I found the rooms to be quite nice but a bit cold. I found it weird that I had to take the pillow from the closet myself. The biggest issue I found is that there is no wi-fi in the rooms. The breakfast is included and is a nice small buffet with a small selection of hot drinks and juices, pastries, cold meats and a couple of hot dishes (scrambled eggs and sausages). Overall a good experience.
