“Beautiful Hotel”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

While being a fairly old Hotel, it is very well kept and maintained. The flowers/ garderns are beautiful. The reception and hotel decor is quite bright and homely feeling. The views are phenominal. Rooms were spacious, clean, tidy and had a lovely balcony attached. Staff were friendly and helpful. I was surprised how few guests there were, but I suppose the hotel is a bit far out and perhaps not in season? There is a tennis court (which we used) and a swimming pool (which we also used) but was far too cold as it is not quite in season yet. A really wonderful experience.

Slight negatives:
Beds were a little too firm for my liking, and I found it a bit difficult to sleep. Heard someone from along the same floor getting up in the morning- was very noisy!

Room Tip: Some rooms on the 1st floor have a larger balcony (rooms 101- 104 I think)

Excellent location to visit Belmonte and other legendary villages like Sortelha and Sabugal or the highest mountains in Portugal, Serra da Estrela. The hotel is great in every way: very friendly and helpfull staff, good restaurant, very nice pool, parking in front of the hotel, large and confortable rooms with great view to the mountains. Can't say anything negative about this hotel. And the best of it the excellent price/quality relation.

This is an excellent hotel. The room was very nice with a little balcony and a lovely view across the valley. We had dinner in the restaurant, which was first class. The breakfast was extensive and could not be faulted. The manager was extremely helpful, planning an itinerary for us to explore the wonderful Serra de Estrela.

Very good hotel. Reception upgraded us for a triple room with a huge balcony, what was great to admire the lovey garden and beautiful view. The swimming pool looks rather nice, though we did not use it as it was still cold. Good protected wifi in the room.
The only cons is that the hotel is not in the center of Belmonte and one needs a car to get there. All in all a very good option for the ones wishing to know Belmonte, homeland of Pedro Alvares Cabral who discovered Brazil.

Room Tip: Choose front room for great view

The staff at the hotel was very welcoming. The rooms (we had two) were a decent size. The grounds were beautiful, obviously well tended to. There's a pool in the back with ample lounge chairs. The restaurant had a nice selection and the food was very good, considering that it was in a hotel. A buffet breakfast was included and there were both hot and cold dishes from which to choose. While the hotel was not in the center of town, it was only 5 minutes away. All in all, it was a very enjoyable experience.

Ideal for overnight stay if travelling from UK to Portugal by car. Little oasis - beautiful area and hotel very attractive. Lovely rooms with balconies, friendly staff and excellent outdoor swimming pool. Food average as long as you are not too adventurous in your choice from the menu.

We stayed for one night, and found this hotel to be pretty nice. By no means is it luxurious, and the room (especially our bathroom) was small, but you don't expect too much given the reasonable price. The setting is not in the old quarter of Belmonte, but in a nice, open location about a mile down the hill from Belmonte, with ample parking. Our room had a good view over to the mountains to the west. We found the restaurant (which also has good views) to be very good---much better than expected for a motel-type lodging. Both the hotel and restaurant pricing is a bargain.
