We stayed in November 2009 at the Convento da Graca on our way home and had an outstandingly good impression of the pousada. The hotel as the name suggests, is a renovated convent with bags of character and history.
The reception staff were very welcoming and friendly and spoke excellent English. We were given a beautiful room overlooking the gardens at the front. Very clean and quiet, the room had a very large and comfortable bed and was very well appointed.
The restaurant staff were also very helpful and put themselves out to make us feel welcome; they ensured we received a discount for being Golden Age guests. We had a top quality meal at a very reasonable price considering the standard of the hotel.
The town centre is literally a stone’s throw away and is pleasant for a stroll.
Just one small point, we thought that for a hotel of this category, the wireless internet should have been complimentary. A computer terminal was available for guests, but this needed a serious overhaul as it was full of viruses; the antivirus installed was well out of date.
Nevertheless, we can thoroughly recommend this pousada and hope to be able to stay longer next time. Well worth treating yourself!
