“Quiet, fantastic views, historical site”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

This Pousada in a old an quite village just below the fortress of Ourem was a peacefull stopover on the way from Porto to Lisbon. Nice rooms, extremely well kept property and spank clean. Restaurant serves excellent dishes at a very reasonable price. Breakfast buffet is generous. The view from old Ourem is breathtaking. Besides this Pousada is only a 15 minutes driving distance from Fatima. Parking is scarce. You might have to leave the car outside the old Ourem village for the night.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view towards east. Most of them have a little balcony.

Beautifully located inside the Fortress of Ourém, this Pousada is comfortable, well decorated, the rooms are quite good and service is very good, as expected. The only downside is the restaurant which, being reasonably good, didn't live up to our expectations (which were high to start with).

Overall, it's a lovely place to stay when in the area and I definitely recommend it.

After a visit to Fatima my family and I stayed at this charming Pousada. We had several rooms with grown children and a 10 month old grandchild ( who I may say behaved beautifully) My husband and I have stayed at 5 other locations through out Portugal and always enjoy our stay. The rooms were very clean and we had a view of the side of the church . I loved the church bells. The pool was great after a long day and the views were spectacular., service was slow at the pool . The courtyard was just so charming were we were able to enjoy coffee and brandy after dinner. The staff was wonderful especially the ladies in the main resturant. . The only negative was the lack of signs to get to the Pousada and the roads are extremely tight and very difficult to maneuver especially if you have a large vechicle. If you are not afraid of heights then the drive may even be exciting for you. When we finally arrived we were told by the front desk that they have never had a client say to them that they had difficuly finding the place or any feedback about the roads which I knew immeditaly could not possibly be accurate. I was able to speak to guests during our stay while at the pool and they had the experience with finding the Pousada so I knew it was not just me. We actually had a GPS and with the cordinates it kept taking us the castle above. All in all a wonderful place to stay, dinner was okay, breakfast was good with a decent selection. Drinks both at the pool and courtyard were good and service was overall very good and very friendly. I would defintely recommend this place to friends or colleagues and my family would defintely stay there again but perhaps they will keep me home because the road was just a bit much for me.

Room Tip: request the rooms with a view of possible.

This hotel is a beautiful retreat in a rural area. It is simple, but inspiring, and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Unless you are a proficient 'cyclist, a car is essential and it is necessary to keep a sharp look out to find the Pousada de Ourem. Pilgrims wishing to travel to Fatima have an ideal stop in this lovely village where there are some interesting walks, especially to a mediaeval castle on the top of the hill. There are a few shops, but no night clubs! There is a memorial plaque on a house to Catherine of Braganza, the Portuguese Queen of Charles II, who stayed in a house in the village on the way up to the castle before travelling to England for her wedding to Charles II. England received Bombay as a result of the marriage contract.

The pousada is set on a spectacular hill top with panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. My husband really enjoyed the drive especially the last bit, but can understand those reviews who did not enjoy this bit!! The room was clean and comfortable if a little basic. No view from the window but the layout of the building made this unavoidable. The building itself is beautiful though possibly could be a problem for anyone with mobility problems. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, they couldn't do enough for us. the resteurant was good if a little pricey, again the staff were very good. Breakfast was fine plenty of choice at the self service buffet. The pool area small but adequate and great for relaxing after a days sightseeing. Plenty to do in the surrounding area, but I would say a car is a must. Not much to do in the evening unless you are prepared to drive.
We had a very enjoyable stay and would recommend this pousada to friends.

The hotel is very charming in several aspects. The staff was great as the restaurant.
It's located up in the hill with a nice city view. The only problem we have was to find a place to park. Since it is next to the church and the streets are very thigh we had some troubles with the SUV car we rented for my family...

Unexpected gem near Fatima. Pleasant accommodation and excellent restaurant. The approach was somewhat unnerving, as we had to abandon the car in the rain at the cobbled part of the incline as it got no grip and we had bad wheelspin. That said, the village is charming and friendly. Notwithstanding the Poussada, the village itself was refreshingly untouristy and the cafes and bars were very much priced for locals.
