We found ourselves in the area and randomly selected this hotel at the last minute not knowing what to expect. Ricardo took our booking and he was a pleasure to deal with and made us feel instantly welcome. The design is excellent with thoughtful, warm touches whenever you look. It's beautifully lit, with gorgeous interesting materials including cork cladding, port...

A house full of design in the middle of nowhere - but also home to some of the nicest hotel staff in Europe. We stayed for six nights, walked on most days and enjoyed the professional, kind hospitality at Casa das Penhas Douradas every minute. Special needs and wishes (a wedding anniversary, a medical issue) were dealt with kindly and...

Quite a place! Perched upon the middle of Serra da Estrela, the property also offers an excellent gastronomic experience. Clean, spacious and comfortable, to say the minimum. A design hotel. Thoroughly recommended! Marcio and Ana

We did not even know that Portugal had mountains over 2000 metres! Situated on the edge of a plateau, this is a fantastic, friendly hotel with attentive staff. It's great for kids and for outdoor activities, such as hiking.

I loved everything about Casa das Penhas Douradas. The hotel is in the middle of nowhere, so it is the perfect spot for a relaxing stay. I loved that the inside pool has a huge view to the mountains. I booked a honeymoon package and got a wonderful massage. The food is delicious and, as a breakfast lover, I must...

The hotel is located in the Estrella mountains. The rooms are small, but rather nicely designed. The terrace in front of the rooms is great, as is the possibility to rent DVDs and watch them in the room. The pool is small, and it's annoying that you need to wear (and buy) a bathing cap. What really spoiled our stay...

I have been here several times before, but I never took some minutes to write about this hotel, so here it goes. The hotel is amazing and seems to be getting even better over the years. Here I found a place to relax, have amazing food, play with my son in a nice pool and take very pleasant walks in...

This is an absolute gem in every sense. Stunning location right in the middle and top of the national park with amazing scenery in every direction. The hotel itself is incredible in every sense; wonderful wood decor at every turn, amazing food and attentive but discreet staff. We are already planning our return to this faultless haven.

This is a great retreat for those who want to actively enjoy the beautiful surroundings or simply relax for a few days. Staff makes you feel at home and atmosphere is very easy going, comparable to mountain huts in the Alps. Food is also good, but in my opinion not as gastronomic as they claim it is.

Once you arrive after negotiating the narrow curves of mountain roads, you are welcomed in this unique capsule of mountain relaxation. Where the staff do a great job at making you feel welcome. At bedtime you will find a little sweet greeting in your room with a note stating their wish is that you "are already missing us before you...
