My partner and I have just returned from 3 wonderful days at the Solar da Castelo - and we wanted to praise this great hotel. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome, and nothing was too much trouble for the helpful reception staff - be it ordering us taxis, recommending sites to see (and importantly, how to get there!) or booking restaurants for us.
The hotel's location is superb, right next to the castle, and only 5kms from the airport (but beware of unscrupulous taxi drivers who may try to overcharge you - we paid double!)
Our room was slightly small, but perfectly formed, and the bathroom came stocked with fab Molton Brown products.
Whilst there is no restaurant, there is an honesty bar in the spacious lounge and breakfast is a help yourself arrangement, with fresh coffee, pastries etc which you can have in the sunny courtyard when the weather permits.
All in all this hotel exceeded our expectations, and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to other trippers!
