Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 July 2017 via mobile

Top service fantastic owners could not do enough for you.

Free wifi bottle of one of the best red wines I have tasted beer cans of pop and fruit all laid on for free as part of the room.

Fantastic breakfast laid on.

Tony is more than willing to taxi you to restaurants on a night willing to pick you up and drop you at airport.

I highly recommend the Quinta to everyone looking for a visit to stunning Portugal

I stayed at the Quinta do Scoto for the best 5 days in a bed and breakfast I have ever experienced, the old manor house and barns have been restored and converted by the owners Tony and Penny to become an outstanding feature of the area, and well situated for easy access to all the cultural and places of interest in Lisbon. The rooms are spacious with antique style furniture well equipped with welcoming goodies ie well stocked fridge wine and fruits.
What I read on the Quinta website is only the minimum you will receive, Tony and Penny and daughter Charlotte made my stay very special by providing all the information and guidance I needed to visit all the attractions of Lisbon. It was very much like staying with family Tony and Penny would do anything within their power to make my stay as enjoyable as possible, even providing on several occasions free lifts to local amenities and rail station.
The continental breakfast was wholesome and varied with a flexible time table no getting up early after a late night. There are also excellent restaurants close to the Quinta with good food at reasonable prices.
I would heartily recommend this amazing Quinta to anyone looking for a base from which to tour the surrounding areas or just relax in comfort.
My only regret is i should have visited this wonderful place sooner and stayed longer.

Well how lucky we were to find this place. After 3 nights in Lisbon in a b & b we travelled to the Quinta . Tony & Penny, the owners, gave us directions from Rossio train station in Lisbon and Tony collected us from the train station , we didn't have a car, he gave us a short guided tour of the area and the local restaurants before arriving at the Quinta. Remember this place is more or less equi distance between Lisbon and Sintra and the perfect place to travel from to escape the city. The Quinta has been beautifully restored by Tony & Penny with a good eye for detail. We did our registration over a cool glass of wine and a beer. We were given info about the surrounding area.
We were then shown to our room Count Rendalo , WOW , 2 double beds loads of wardrobe space, draws, fruit, wine, and a massive bathroom with double basins , separate show and bath loads of towels and pool towels just gorgeous and as described on the web site . We spent the afternoon by the pool where there is a BBQ and a guest kitchen if you want to use it. In the evening we walked into the village and had a really good dinner at a local restaurant , good wholesome Portuguese food. The following day my daughter was due to arrive from Lisbon and TONY was really helpful about suggestions as to where she could leave her luggage while sightseeing round Lisbon as the left luggage was not open in Rossio Station , he just told her to ask at a hotel , she did and they agreed , thanks for the suggestion Tony.
The only sounds at night were those of the countryside.
The breakfast was a cold buffet with ample bread , cereals, jams etc tea coffee, juices everything one would expect, they don't do cooked breakfast but we were told this.
Off we went to Sintra and Charlotte, Tony & Pennys daughter drove us to the station. On our return we took a taxi from the station back to the Quinta as we didn't want to keep bothering Tony & Penny, but they would have collected us if we'd rung. My daughter arrived later and they collected her from the station.
The day we left we were going back into Sintra so we left our luggage at the Quinta and Tony arranged for the local taxi to collect our luggage and meet us in Sintra for our onwards journey to Cascais.
All I can say is this place is faultless it's everything and more you could expect and the perfect location to get out of the city.
Tony,Penny and Charlotte are the perfect hosts without being intrusive,and go above and beyond what we've ever been offered by any b&b or even hotel.

Where else can you stay where the owner drives you to the local restaurant so you'll be able to enjoy Portugal wine? Penny and Tony welcome you to their beautifully-restored property and make your stay memorable. We enjoyed our complimentary bottle of wine poolside. And we had the place to ourselves in early May. It is about a 15 minute drive into the town of Sintra. There is a lot to see in Suntra so wear your comfortable shoes!!

We stayed for just a night, but enjoyed it greatly. The room is huge and decorated with antique furniture. It is very quite and relaxing, the owners are very welcoming and warm people who did everything in their power to make our stay even more pleasant. We immediately wished we had booked more nights there just for the atmosphere and happiness we felt there

Room Tip: Ask Tony for suggestions!
