“A night in Tavira”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

I was very fortunate while travelling through Portugal to come across 'Tavira house hotel'.It is very well situated in the heart of Tavira surrounded by some great restaurants,it is a very old building that has been restored to its original condition with great care and attention and the ceilings in the dining room and lounge are wonderful.The rooms are very comfortable and staff very attentive and I really enjoyed the wine tasting with Serge who gave me a great insight into Portuguese wines.I would recommend this hotel as a great place to stay,stylish but homely and very friendly.

Stayed September 2013, traveled with friends

We stayed 3 nights in this nice charming Tavira House. The structure is nice, quite and really well restructured. It is a peacefull place and people working here are really kind and helpful. Common spaces are relaxing and well structured. Also the wine tasting experience was really good. Breakfast is really good and ingredients are always fresh. Wi Fi is available and free in common areas and in the rooms. Good Job! Suggested to couples.

This is a lovely small hotel in a typical Portuguese street. The staff are very friendly and helpful especially Isabel. It suited us down to the ground. However as there is no pool it is probably not for young families.
The town is as yet unspoilt and there are plenty of good restaurants just a short walk down into the town to visit on an evening.
The beach is only accessible by ferry which is quite inexpensive and once there there is miles to go at so if you want to be quiet just keep walking towards Faro.
We will definitely be going back.

The Lounge is lovingly preserved with its 19th century beauty.
Our room is on the ground floor, facing the small pool. But that wasn't a problem at all.

We were given the key to the main entrance in case we had to return after mid-night.
We felt safe the whole time (we stayed 4 nights).
We parked on the street just outside the hotel and didn't have a problem, except that returning in late afternoon finding a space might not be easy.

The hotel, and the room we had were clean. Room - modern furnishing.
The shower was efficient.

Staff was friendly, breakfast was included and it was good -- a balance of meat, cereal, fruit, and pastry; juice, tea and coffee available.

You can enjoy the sun at the rooftop where there is comfortable furniture.

It's only 4 minutes walk to the town centre, and walking across the bridge you can find a lot of restaurants and in the evening there may be live music by the river bank. Very pleasant walk.

Tavira House is an amazingly well designed hotel. Its modern and uber stylish. Luxurious little gem. The staff is exceptionally helpful. The location is perfect right in the middle of Tavira town. Everything is close by. Our room was simple, contemporary decor, the window doesn't look out to much tho. The rain shower was great!! Nice touch of a bottle of water and fruits in the room everyday. The living room is very cool. The breakfast was ample. The staff give you all the information u need. The beaches r either a short boat ride away or a short bus ride away. So many amazing beaches in the area!! on the whole a very pleasant and relaxing stay in Tavira. The free wifi doesnt hurt either ;). Totally recommend it!!!

This is how you should make a boutique hotel. Everything is thought of and fits with the style, they fill you water while you are out (even though we checked in at 9, went out, and came back to fresh water). The breakfast is delicious, with a great selection as has been previously stated. The staff are friendly and kind, really there is nothing I would change! Well done to Tavira House Hotel!!

As a side note, the Camera Obscura nearby is a MUST SEE!!

Room Tip: We stayed in the suite, which is over two floors with a staircase leading up. Beautiful!

Stayed in TH for the last week in June. It is a lovely boutique hotel with fantastic staff, Jo, Isobel, Mark and Hugo were all professional, polite and helpful. I cannot understand anyone finding fault with this place. Location is great and the drawing room is beautiful. Breakfast are super and nothing is too much trouble. Thank you all.
