“Perfect spring refuge”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2012

Our affection for this hotel grows with each stay (our third) - great location, atmosphere and staff - love the older Portuguese style of furniture, log fires in dining room and lounge.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the park

This hotel is in a great location - on the island in a park in Tomar which is a very pretty little town. Other reviews talk of the hotel as having faded charm which is about right. But it was good value for money - nice room with a lovely balcony and there was a waiter like Manuel from Fawlty Towers who was very very charming and polite and helpful. Luckily no John Cleese!
Breakfast was rather dull compared to some places we have stayed in on this trip but adequate.
Tomar is lovely and has lots to offer in terms of sightseeing.
If you like a kingsize bed you wont get one here - just regular beds.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the rooms with a balcony at the front. Lovely view over the park

Arriving late in Tomar without a reservation, we had three levels of options: (1) the large modern Hotel of the Templars at 110/euro, two in town guest houses at less than 50 euro, no parking, small rooms, windows directly facing streets, etc., and this place. For 85 euro, we got a lovely room on the second floor with a blooming wisteria pergola over a large balcony with a view of the park. We were able to park for free directly in front of the hotel, and carried our suitcase up the stairs to our room. Yes, it is "dated", but we do not go to the Europe to experience new. Set in the island park, it is cool, quiet and private, yet an easy walk to the historic center. While the park is public, it had few people in it and felt private. We had dinner at a sidewalk cafe on Tomar's pedestrian mall, and a good breakfast at the hotel in the morning. Also, while I had my doubts about the mattress, it was in fact quite comfortable and we slept well in quiet with cool breezes coming off the balcony. Staff was very friendly, helpful.
My only complaint is getting to the hotel is not obvious: one crosses a bridge to the island that is verbotten to most traffic. Also, shower was small and funky: seemed to incorporate bidet with shower.

Yes, the location of this hotel is in a middle of an small island which has some charm. You may park the car right in front of the building. The personel is very friendly even though some of them may not speak English very well but they do try their best to help.

What I dislike mostly is the outdated furniture and decor which makes you feel like to stay in a hotel in 60's or every earlier. There is no air condition or refrigerator and I do not understand how they may get a Four Star rating. The mattress is extremly hard which is not comfortable at all. The isolation is not that good too but fortunately there were not many guests when we stayed there. During the weekend some young people are hanging around in the evening, also a bit noisy.

The breakfast is very simple and there is no any hot food except coffee or tea.

As a whole, considering the price and quality, I would not recommand this hotel. Of course you may find it pleasant if you do not mind those negative points I list above.

Set in the valley of the Nabao in a charming park, this inn is a great stop over, with clean modern rooms, good food, heat, and a short walk anywhere in the wonderful city of Tomar.

Although the rooms and hallways in this hotel were a bit outdated, the ambiance was charming. It is centrally located on a small island. Our room had a large balcony overlooking the park setting (a plus for our Happy Hour!). Friends stayed here and there was a Soup Festival in the park on the days they were visiting. Free parking; breakfast excellent. Restaurant on site was quite nice. Our visit in Tomar, especially to the Convento do Cristo (Knights Templar) was a highlight of our month in Portugal.

This cute hotel is on an island and the rooms have balconies that over look the park and river. The hotel is older but that adds to it’s charm. We spent one night there and the rate included breakfast. We actually tried to change our flights to a later time to spend another night there as we found the hotel so charming. Short walk to restaurants and short drive to the castle. Staff was very nice to deal with. The town of Tomar is small and driving in town is not an issue. Parking is free. We slept with the windows to our room open and in the middle of the night and heard nothing, it was sort of eerie and then at 4 AM the clock struck four, that was cool.
