I just returned from my second visit to the Cidnay and I loved it even more than the first time. The hotel is poorly described as being in Porto - it's actually about 15 minutes drive from Porto airport in the small town of Santo Tirso. But if you have a need to be in ST then this is a great hotel.
The hotel sits on the side of a hill - and the lobby which you enter directly off the street, is actually the top floor with the rooms, conference facilities etc on three lower floors. The rooms are large and well equipped though so far I've not managed to get one with a view of more than the car park.
The restaurant and bar have spectacular views over the hillside. Both are very stylishly decorated with fantastic panoramic windows. There's a large outdoor terrace that I've not yet managed to use because it's always raining!
We had a two day meeting in the hotel. The meeting rooms were of good size, well equipped and comfortable. The lunch buffets were exceptionally good and the staff were all very pleasant.
As I mentioned, this was my second visit. When I checked in late at night the receptionist said "Last time you were here you left a book in your room". I was shocked - it had been 18 months earlier but during the entire time they'd kept my book and had now placed it back in my room for me.
