The Palace is absolutely magnificent, surrounded by a lush forest. The public areas still keep the true grandeur of this place. However, the rooms - at least in the old part of the Palace - are in urgent need of revamping. They are not only very, very tired, but they also need technical upograding. No air conditioning and no wifi... More

We were offered a weekend stay at the gorgeous Bussaco Palace for our wedding. It was amazing. I knew it existed and had only seen pictures of it. The palace is opulent and breathtaking. We loved the attention to detail from all the staff. They even recommended a nice place for dinner. It was worth the drive. The Sunday Brunch... More

Very disappointed in the service and staff at this hotel. The staff is not interested in assisting tourists in any way. We asked for places to visit in the area and were told to ask at the garden office. Service in the hotel was either slow or non-existent. We later learned that a 'Foundation" purchased the property and has been... More

The palace and grounds are worth a visit. We would not recommend staying the night unless you can accept poor service and rude staff, with the exception of house keeping, Reception was put out by our arrival, bar service was mediocre, and resturant staff was rude and slow. When we travel we usually have pleasant experiences. But In all of... More

The hotel has very nice surroundings and it really looks lite a palace. Unfortunately our stay was horrible as it's a hot area in the summer season and, although it says on the rooms description that it has Air Conditioner, the Hotel management put us on a non air conditioner room (room 22). When questioned about it, they said that... More

Driving up to this hotel is where the excitement begins. It's a good 12 minute drive upwards from the main road. We were left in a state of anticipation whilst admiring the nature around us and had no clue what to expect. Once you arrive you are breathtaken by the grandiosity of the place. We were on our honeymoon and... More

Great dinner at the restaurant, decoration is really classical, there's no air conditioning but if you reserve on the parking side you won't have any sun. Keep the windows open and you'll have the mountain breeze! Parking is free, and at the gate tell them you stay at the hotel and the admission will be free.

We really had mixed feelings during our stay in this hotel. The place is absolutely amazing, beautiful architecture, the hotel lobby, the balcony where you can have breakfast in the sunny mornings... however, the rooms were a strong disappointment! They are old, they lack maintenance, the carpet has stains, the bed is not comfortable at all, no air conditioning, no... More

We were told about the palace the day before our trip and after reading reviews we worked it into our schedule. While the grounds are beautiful and it's worth a hike in the trails I would not recommend sleeping there. The palace is grand when you first walk in and I recommend having a drink at the bar terrace. However... More

We loved our stay at the palace! The place was beautiful. The grounds were amazing with wonderful gardens and walking paths. The architecture was stunning both inside and out. If you can get the room with a balcony I would highly recommend it. (Room 17)
