The Hotel is set in it's own little valley. the River is beautiful and has been partly diverted to run a hydro electric plant on site, this actually adds to the wow factor. The restaurant served some great dishes, a couple could have been hotter but not a big issue. Great parking and the rooms are big modern well equipped...

I stayed there for 2 days on business trip where we had organized our sales team meeting. The whole place is very peaceful, nicely decorated, and the green surroundings are part of the experience. Very friendly staff, good food, nothing really to criticise. A very pleasant place for enjoying a moment of quietness

What a surprise. This is an amazing hotel and restaurant in the middle of nature. Pure relax in countryside. If there is a private place hidden from city stress, this is it. Its absolutely quite. The food is well done with tradicional flavors.

Hotel was perfect for what it was chosen for - relaxing and calm stay after a long trip with a 5 month baby. Really silent, relaxing, noce surroundings, nice room and view. At daytime really empty, which added to it's value - both days we were the only ones with our baby in the pool and during breakfast which made...

I visited this hotel in February 2016 and it was a very good surprise. The hotel is very warm and cozy. Modern and comfortable. The rooms have a nice view over the mountains and surrounding forest. If you like biking or hiking, you found the right place. From the hotel you have a lot of track around the river. Really...

The hotel is new, comfortable and far from every noise or nuisance. The staff is very helpful and friendly despite being overload. They are doing absolutely their best!!! The rooms are large, comfortable with a lovely view over the river and the forestry. The restaurant is also good though the service is slow because the place is understaffed. In any...

Great ecological hotel, beautiful rooms, good indoors swimming pool, the green all around us it´s superb and it´s close to a lot of beautiful places like Arouca, Ria de Aveiro or Oliveira de Azemeis, the only thing not so good is the price they charge for an extra bed for a child....too expensive!

Last weekend I've been here for a wedding and everything was perfect. The staff very polite and happy, the river so close and all that green view around was breathtaking. The location isn't the best (to get there) but for relaxing can't be better. The only noises we can hear are the nature surrounding this magnificent place. Can't wait to...

Me and my husband spent two nights on this hotel, in the winter (December). Maybe due to being winter, or due to the isolated location of the hotel, we felt a sad and lonely ambience there. The hotel is very far from civilization, and located in the middle of a wood. There's no mobile phone coverage here, which it's kind...
