+ Quiet + Good breakfast buffet + Beautiful building
friendly staff excellent location lovely old building nice breakfast lovely room
pool very deep - 3.30mt. not many shallow areas.
Very good hotel
pool closed before advertised time
Everything, quiet location but close to town centre,good sized rooms, excellent breakfast and good food in the hotel restaurant at reasonable prices. Secure parking for motorcycles. Third time I have used this hotel while touring Spain and Portugal
That I only spent two nights here.
Great place to relax. The restaurant was also good.
A beautiful spot in an unusual setting- the hotel once a Fortress. Quality accommodation, excellent facilities, great pool.
Shame the tavern within the hotel was closed when we visited as it looked great!
Everything! location, right in the historic centre, friendly and helpful staff, comfortable beds, clean room, excellent breakfast - beside of the coffee. Good value for money. Definitelly recomended!
Comfortable rooms. Standard twin rooms are a good size with good AC/heating controls, nice bath. Plenty of storage + mini-fridge. Double pane windows = quiet even with noisy guests outside under the window. One of the best breakfast buffets we've seen in Portugal with many options of fresh fruits, cheeses, meats, breads & pastries. Food in restaurant is excellent and at a price much lower than expected.
Would have liked fresh orange juice at breakfast. Dining room needs more servers as they are short-staffed and it is difficult for them to handle a full dining room. WiFi won't load some websites and was down on Sunday mornings both times I stayed (3 weeks apart).
Location is strategic. Room is clean, minimal decoration but spacious.
Wifi connection very poor.
The sauna was excellent, as well as the pool area
Comfortable room and beds. Heating or ac available as needed. Nice view from our window. Quiet with soundproof windows (important if groups are touring the Fort). Very clean. The breakfast buffet was one of the best we've seen in Portugal, many choices of meats, cheeses, fruits, breads, and pastries. Fresh juice. Everything you need right there on the buffet. Dinners were also good (+huge portions) and the dinner prices were surprisingly low for a hotel with most mains at 10euro large enough to be shared..
Service in the dining room was terribly slow both nights we ate there. We waited almost an hour to get anything except a piece of bread. I finally walked out to my car for a bottle of water when I got fed up trying to get the attention of wait staff after 45 min.! Once we were served, the rest came quickly. WiFi is flaky. Some websites would never load at all. And the morning we left there was no Internet connection at all. Totally unreliable. I had to use the mobile network to try to conduct business - difficult! Its a shame that the dining room service & WiFi prevent this from being a higher review score.
Everything. The friendliness of the staff. The comfort of the bedroom and the quiteness of the the Hotel surroundings even being in a very central area. It is an unique place and I strongly recommend it.
Very special hotel. We have stayed here many times. Very comfortable beds . The shower water is so soft it feels like silk. If visiting Chaves the Forte is the place to stay.
The breakfast was not up to the usual standard and was in a small room and not the restaurant. No hot option or home made jam as before, but perhaps this is because it is the low season.
Very clean good resturant
Rooms to far for old elderly
historical town, hotel in fort, staff helpful had nice tea in lounge,In evening restaurant typical and great vista of fort.after in lounge made a nice Irish coffee. Nice bedroom. easy parking out side hotel in grounds.
¡¡¡¡ excelente !!!!
outstanding place to stay, breakfast 5 stars and the room was nice and warm, shame we only stayed 1 night,
Beautiful location in center Chaves. Staff is friendly and great outdoor areas. Recommend!
A bit noisy in the morning.
Come back for the restaurant, not for the bed! Nice location directly at the center of the village. The hotel looks nice but somewhat under decorated. We had a nice breakfast with real fresh orange juice and excellent lunch and dinners at the restaurant, for a much better price then you would have expected for such a location. Good wifi everywhere and also a pc available.
With the low occupation we encountered it gives you an unpleasant feeling seeing almost no other guests around. The room is somewhat small, not a pleasant place to sit, just to sleep. The bed we had was awfull, stif and absolutely under acceptable level for this hotel. It "peeps and cracks" at every turn you make, so keeps you awake ( room 55, mattress still on a wooden shelf).
Old fortress is a great place, close to historic centre, excellent breakfast, good price.
problem with wifi
