Reviewed 14 October 2017

This hotel is indeed like a palace in a majestic location. Our room was very spacious, with magnificent views and was very comfortable. The fact that there is a swimming-pool (open till 20:00) is also a plus. Breakfast was fantastic. In short, it is highly recommended for those travelling in the area of Serra da Estrela.

The building and the park invite to quietness and calm. The indoor swimming pool is very nice and has good temperature. The food is tasty and the service high standing. I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to visit the Estrella park which is most beautiful and interesting.

This is a very impressive hotel building with a fascinating history as a sanitarium, caring for railway workers with tuberculosis. The garden area of the hotel is very tranquil with impressive views over the valley and it is stunning at night with all the towns and villages lit up. It has a nice pool with a steam room and sauna and a large bar area as well as a small bar serving the outdoor pool. The rooms are large and well appointed, housekeeping is very efficient and the bathroom was spacious. There was a good choice at breakfast with a number of regional cheeses and cakes and the fresh orange juice was lovely. The location on the edge of the national park is spectacular with windy mountain roads to test your nerve and driving skills. A very nice, large hotel which is very tranquil with attentive staff and a really nice place for a relaxing stay. Plenty of free parking and free wifi throughout.
