The main hotel, ie the reception, bar, restaurant, lounge areas are all in the original building, which is the old palace, it is absolutely beautiful, so much character and the ceilings are amazing!!

Overall our stay was satisfactory. Hotel is a historical monument and main building is very impressive. It is situated next to Douro. Although a little off centre, daily shuttles are organised by the hotel. Staff is very polite, however concierge services need to develop.

A great place to stay, peaceful, on edge of Oporto, on the edge of the River Douro. The main rooms are in the palace and the bedrooms in a linked converted factory. Whilst sounds odd, it was in fact beautifully linked appreciating the history of both historic buildings. The bedrooms are large and comfortable. The staff were friendly and efficient...

This is a lovely hotel, we enjoyed it very much and would definitely recommend it. The service, food and ambience were definitely 5 *.

Fabulous hotel, a 40 minute walk outside of Porto overlooking the River Douro. A historic poussada which comprises of two buildings - a palace housing a restaurant and bar and the old flour factory housing the bedrooms. Traditional Portuguese cuisine, swimming pool, gym and spa. Excellent place to stay - close enough to walk to the centre of Porto and...
