The first time we have stayed here and we would definitely come again. The staff were all very friendly and helpful throughout. The only thing I would also like is an electric charge point for our car.

This is the first Pousada we stayed at during our first trip to Portugal. It recently re-opened after the lockdown. Glad to say it's back to it's usual high standards. Be sure to allow time to wander through the castle and chruch.

All went as expected. Room, bed and sheets were good. Breakfast was excellent. The hotel is peaceful an quiet. The room was a little cold and the heater/cooler had some extra noise. Did not bother to locate/play with the adjustments late in the night (and the front desk told us that they would have helped us if we had asked) but we went to bed instead and that was warm enough : ) Location is very nice, quiet and have wonderful views. Hotel has parking right in front of the entrance. It was quite full tough when we arrived late (23:00) but manged to get the "last free space". It seemed possible to park further below as well so you'll probably find a spot for your care in reasonable vicinity after dropping you bag at the entrance.

This hotel was expected to be a special experience but failed to live up to expectations. The settee in the room had dirty marks on, the sealant round the bath was black in places and the shower didn't work. My complaint to reception resulted in a visit to the room from the receptionist who after saying it was OK, agreed that there was a problem and it didn't work. I asked for a reduction and was given a 5% discount on our evening meal which made a difference of around 3 Euros! I hasten to add that staff in the restaurant were very friendly and attentive and the meal was enjoyable. I recieved an email from 'Pestana' the pousada owners but despite completing their questionaire and voicing my discontent, I didn't hear anything further from them. The location is splendid, the ambiance excellent but lack of attention to detail spoiled the experience and clearly they aren't too concerned.

Although we had reviewed the info on the web about this Pousada we were blown away by the location and the views. The staff were very welcoming from the minute we arrived, making this stay the most friendly we have ever had in a hotel. The inside is every bit as historic as the outside, but still manages to be stylish, with all the comforts you would expect. Breakfast in the cloisters is special.

Outstanding stay. Exception accommodation, friendly staff and superb location. It was like stepping back in time entering the hotel, beautifully preserved historical building. Would have liked to stay longer and hope to return. Best views of surrounding areas I've ever seen.

We recently stayed here for a family reunion. Wonderful and beautiful atmosphere and we had a large corner room with fabulous views. The bar service was slow but the restaurant was excellent. On the day of the family lunch the kitchen had laid on a wonderful spread which cannot be criticized. Would love to stay here again.

We stayed for a couple of nights including New Year's Eve where there was a dinner and then entertainment. The food was excellent and the staff were superb. Watching the fireworks from the battlements at midnight was an unforgettable experience.

Great hotel, but evening meal overpriced and overmicrowaved; the view from our room went across the plain to Lisbon and must be unrivalled; the staff were friendly and very helpful, the courtyard in the middle would be brilliant for a wedding
