I had stayed in Obidos and had always wanted to stay at the Castle so we were thrilled when we were able to get reservations. The Castle is interesting and the dining room where we had breakfast was beautiful. We stayed in a superior cottage. Quite frankly there was nothing superior about it nor did it feel much like a...

We walked through the old gate in the wall and found the hotel on our left. The woman on the reception desk was helpful and suggested we...

What an awesome experience from beginning to end. Everyone was so friendly and accommodating while we were here. We stayed at several other Pousadas during our trip and the chef of this one needs to be promoted to run all of the other kitchens. Excellent food and the service staff was incredibly nice. We thought it might be kind of...

unforgettable experience of charming management who will not spare any effort to make your stay most successsful. Personal attention to detail. The poussada itself is full of charm,renovated ancient walls. The dining and breakfast room has great view on the valley down. Breakfast is most generous with quality products. Service is naturally smiling.

Visiting with wife & 2 older children, exceptional hotel within the castle walls. Treated like royalty by EVERYONE here. Feels like you are in medieval times with all the modern luxury. Not an easy access be well worth the trip, one of our highlights of our Portugese trip.

This hotel is on the edge of a great walled town, and part of the hotel is inside the walls, and part is outside the walls. We stayed in the "new" part, (1950's), in a quaint room, up a tight flight of stairs, just comfortable enough. VERY helpful staff, and realized that we should have stayed in the OLD part...
