Good hotel, just 10 min from city centre. Confortable, large rooms and beds, excellent breakfast. Our room had sea view, with a balcony, was perfect to stay at night. We were very pleased with the staff, also. Definitly a place to return, good value for the money.

It doesn't have at all the quality of a four star hotel. Very old everything, and the breakfast was something really shameful. In 2013 we still have to pay for wifi on a four srar hotel... in general I've been in guesthouses much better than this four star hotel in front of the beach...

Loved our time here and will definitely be going back next year. First impressions were good, a clean spacious room and was pleased to find a well-appointed modern bathroom.

Staff were friendly and courteous, the room was lovely, it was a twin room with a sea view, the breakfast was perfect, and a gorgeous view of the sea all round the room and so close to the train station, I will definitely stay there again.

The best thing about this hotel is it's proximity to lovely Cascais - a 10 minute stroll away. Our room was dark & looked towards the car park which is actually the front of the property.
