Peneda hotel is located at the top end of the Portuguese National park, Geres i assume that at the old days, the hotel served a a humble accommodation for pilgrims that came to the church/monastery located directly next to the hotel. in any case, the place was nicely renovated and the the place was given a flair of rural/rustic place. it was the only hotel in Portugal were by TWO chairs were put in the room for the benefit of the guests!

Booked this hotel on internet, was not disappointed on its position in the national park. Good place to stay and visit the area. Hotel is clean and very modern inside, has a small restaurant attached. Food good for area but no English spoken. Hotel reception spoke clear English. Good TV with international programs with a good quality picture for a change. Had a lounge, no bar, Rooms clean with modern bathrooms.

We had a lovely room, very clean and comfortable. It was in a nice, peaceful setting and our host was very friendly and helpful. The Sanctuary is very nice and walking up and down the steps you can look into all the little chapels. There is no waterfall behind the hotel now since a dam was built above it to form a lake. We walked up the steep, rocky path (all switchbacks) It took us an hour with some stops but it was very nice to sit by the lake. It was another hour coming down taking it steady (our sticks would have been useful) Worth the walk (we are in our 60's) We ate in the restaurant (note: the price includes starter, main, dessert, wine, water and coffee - 33 euros for two) Food was very good and substantial so don't snack beforehand.

My wife and myself were on our roadtrip in the north of Portugal when late in the day we arive at a beautiful church with a hotel next to it. We were wondering of the had a room available, they had. The staff was so helpful. The food was excellent and not expensive. We wanted to read a book at a nice warm place so they put on a fire in the fireplace of the living room. We had a nice warm evening with great whine. We closed our stay with a nice breakfast. We had plenty of food to choice from. The room they gave us had a nice view of the curch. We really highly recommend this hotel.

To date, we have never given a bad review. However, we felt one was needed here, to warn other travellers. We had very much looked forward to staying at Peneda Hotel. It looks like a wonderful hotel, in an amazing setting. So, we booked 11 months in advance, using the online system. We promptly received an email to advise us that our reservation was received, but that we had to await confirmation. So, over the next months, we followed up with three separate emails – written both in English and Portuguese – to seek this confirmation. Only after our third email – now 8 months later – did we finally receive a reply from Peneda Hotel. It wasn’t very courteous and it certainly wasn’t apologetic. Basically, it advised us to that our reservation was cancelled to make room for a large group booking. We were “bumped”! Now, we understand that they are running a business – and a big booking is very appealing. And this HAS actually happened to us before. However, on THAT occasion, the hotel proactively approached us, well ahead of time. On THAT occasion the hotel offered sincere apologies, as well as alternative options, AND compensation in the form of a discounted stay elsewhere. Peneda Hotel – we would have loved to stay, but instead you have left us very, very disappointed. In our experience, your communications, your attitude, and your customer service were all very poor. We wrote this review not out of spite – and we are not interested in compensation. However, we DO want to warn fellow travellers: Please make sure you get confirmation!
