Stayed at the hotel with my girlfriend for a snowboarding weekend at serra da estrela. We were looking for a comfortable and quiet hotel to spend the night an this hotel met our needs very well. Positive: The rooms are modern, comfortable with a great mountain view. Friendly staff. Good value for money I will return again.

The hotel was a little tired but the staff were very helpful and it was very clean. The restaurant was very traditional Portuguese and one night we had the buffet which included both cold and hot dishes. We went again to the restaurant and I wish I had chosen the buffet again. Having said that my husband had the fillet...

Great service. Good rooms. Very nice pool with an amazing mountain view. The pool side is a great place to be by day and by night. Great star observation spot. Great terrace with an endless view. The staff is nice. Good bar over the pool with caipirinhas and ice creams.

I loved waking up to see the sunrise on that plain view from the hotel room. The breakfast is tasty. Welcoming and friendly staff. I just think that there was an error in not having built the pool with end in sight. It would have been espetecular with those views! I leave an image just in case will serve as...

Bad service and no value for money!! Sloppy service in the restaurants, and the breakfast is way bellow the standard of a 4 star Hotel, as this Hotel its supposed to be. Although, some nice views to the mountains and Covilhã.

This hotel have a great view in a beautiful location. Easy to travel to the top of the mountain and visit the villages around In my opinion I expect more from a 4 stars hotel.

We stopped here on our tour of Portugal – with another group of British bikers who were using the same ferry crossings as us. The rooms were large, clean and comfortable. The views are spectacular, as it's up on the side of the mountain. There's a good pool with the million-dollar views, too. It's a really good place to stay,...

We stood in the hotel for the weekend, and it's a totally gem in Portugal. In the highest mountain in Portugal it has (probably) the highest pool in Portugal as well, which is quite nice where one can spend and enjoyable afternoon. At night, we enjoyed a couple of beers in the balcony bar, which has the most amazing view...
