This delightful small hotel, 13 rooms and seven suites, has a simple charm and everything the traveler needs for visiting Peneda-Gerês National Park and even Spain which is right up the road. There's no mini-bar, and a 21-inch TV which pulls in a grand total of eight channels; on the other hand, the bathtub is unusually long. We'd never seen...

So, we had a car hired in Porto and three days to explore..The weather was looking good so we decided to head for the hills. We went online and booked this hotel for a really good price and in a couple of hours were there. Because of Geres's one way system it was not the easiest place to find, and...

We stayed a week in a double bedroom with a very nice balcony. The bed was really comfortable, the whole room was spotless and it was cleaned daily. Breakfast was included in the room price, nicely varied and taken in an amazing room with huge windows and a view of the mountain. The hotel has private parking on the street...

Excellent location with nice views and easy access everywhere. Good WiFi. Clean and nice room. The staff were very friendly and gave us advice about the things to do/see in the area. Breakfast was simple, but ok with everything that is needed. Very good value for money.

Our room with a balcony was sunny, of good size, good bathroom and comfortable queen bed + plenty of pillows. Breakfasts were good and staff friendly and English speakers. We wanted to watch the French Open and 2 large TVs in guest lounges made for good viewing. Prices were competitive and our stay memorable.

I couldn't have asked anything more of this stay. The staff and the common areas are what really make it special. Particularly as we visited in February and spent the days up in the snowy mountains, returning to this cozy and welcoming place and relaxing by the fire was just perfect. The owners did everything they could to help us,...
