Casa Das Flores
Ranked #5 of 10 Tomar B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 30, 2012

We returned to Casa Das Flores for the second time in eight months and it was just like going back to visit friends. The hospitality was excellent and nothing was too much trouble for Carolyn and John. We stayed during a rainy spell which meant that it was not as warm as when we first visited so Carolyn was on hand to offer hot water bottles if needed. The food was wonderful with home made soups offered some nights along with crusty warm bread and followed with such things as steak pie, pork fillet in sauce, chicken in a white wine sauce and a cottage pie ( requested by us ) all with various potatoes and garden vegetables. These were followed by such things as home made crumble, strawberries and cream, and a traditional fruit cake dessert which was lovely. Breakfast is set up for you to help yourself to cereals and orange juice and you are then offered eggs ( in any shape or form ) or beans on toast followed by extra toast so that you can sample Carolyns home made jam or marmalade and of course plenty of tea or coffee.
The rooms as mentioned in my last review are clean and modern in decor and the fluffy white robes and towels supplied save having to pack these yourselves.
On a nice night there is the barbecue area to sit and enjoy the night warmth whilst enjoying a glass of the local wines that John has in his wine rack..... John will always pick up anything you may need in the local town when he goes in to do the shopping ( only do not ask him to get you new potatoes as he forgets to collect them and blames Carolyn !!! ) Cheers bud .....
We love staying with this fantastic couple in their comfortable B&B and will return soon I hope.

This is the 2nd time we have stayed with John & Carolyn and the hospitality does not change it is still super. So much so that it was part of our decision to buy a house near Tomar. If your are looking for a lovely place to stay in Tomar this is it and don't forget to have an evening meals here, Carolyn should be on Master Chef. We have booked a few more night when we move into our house next month. Well done guys, best B & B in Tomar!!

John and Carolyn put us up in their lovely B&B for 3 nights in March, all 10 of us in our family party. They made us feel very comfortable. My 16 year old son was sick one day and they reassured us they would provide whatever he needed while some of us travelled to Fatima that day. We took advantage of the great dinners they provide 2 nights of the 3. Our last night there, we treated Carolyn and John to dinner in a lovely restaurant in Tomar called O Tabuleiros and had a great time!

While there, check out the incredible Knights of Templar Convent in Tomar and the old aqueduct on the way into town. Kids could not believe you can actually climb up and walk along the aqueduct; parents held their breath. This is a beautiful part of Portugal and you can't go wrong making Casa Das Flores your home base while you visit.

Great value for money B&B, very clean, well decorated spacious rooms. John & Caroline are fabulous hosts and really make you feel at home. Tip: you must book the dinner, as it is wonderful and you won't regret it.

I looked on the internet, found Casa Das Flores and emailed John & Carolyn asking if they had accomodation for the next 5 nights for a house hunting trip, back came the reply sorry we only have room during the next 4 nights, I replied 'Yes thats OK'. This turned out to be one of my better decisions. John & Carolyn were absolutely super and although we have only known them for a very short time we would like to classify them as Best Friends. My wife & I have stayed at a large number of 4 & 5 star hotels across Europe and never have we been made more welcome. When we move to Tomar we hope that John & Carolyn will be our first visitors, it will be an honour to welcome them in our new home.

Casa das Flores is in a central location to visit Tomar and the surrounding area, to include Batalha and Alcobaça. If you plan to visit Tomar's Templar sites, (Almourol Castle, Church of Santa Maria dos Olivais and Convento de Cristo,) Casa das Flores is the perfect place to stay.
Carolyn and John's service is second to none and Carolyn's cuisine is fantastic! One of the amenities that we took advantage of, and of great help if one is traveling through Portugal, was the laundry service. (Note to Carolyn: The laundry is so well done, that if you charge another Euro for the service, it is still the best laundry bargain anywhere in the World!)
Carolyn and John make you feel at home from the moment you arrive until you leave.
Thanks so much for a Great Stay! We can't wait to be back!

From the moment we arrived it was obvious that we were in for quality, good service, wonderful food and lots lots more. John and Carolyn made our stay in Tomar one to remember and one that we intend to repeat as soon as possible. They work round the clock to make everyones stay memorable. Carolyn cooked for us over the six nights that we stayed and informed us each morning what she intended to make for our evening meal. Her food is first class and her seafood pancakes especially. At breakfast the table was set with home made jam and marmalade and there was always two kinds of cereal and plenty of fresh orange juice. We were offered poached or scrambled eggs on toast and given alternatives if this was not suitable. The rooms are clean and comfortable and are tastefull in decor with ample space. Nice white bathrobes are included and towels are changed daily. We hired our own car and went as far as Castelo Branco and Carolyn supplied the best route for us to take ( she really is a mine of information bless her ! ) Both Pete and I fell in love with their dog Jack who is a real softie .....I am already saving my pennies to return to Casa Das Flores.....

Room Tip: All the rooms are of a very high standard and comfortable.
