Location Excellent dining, athough service touch slow
Very nicely designed, great pool and right in the centre of town.
We loved this hotel, from the rooms to the staff, everything was excellent. We had breakfast, lunch and evening meal, in the hotel, the food was absolutely delicious. Although we didn't swim in the pool, as the weather was a little cool, it was just a gorgeous area. The whole hotel is so beautiful, and it was a pleasure to stay their.
Nothing at all.
The restaurant alone is worth a visit. I can safely say that I ate the best meal I have ever had in Portugal here. The prices for the menu were very fair, and affordable, the quality was superb. The overall atmosphere here is great, with lots to do, even though it poured with rain. Great place
The spa at Chaves was closed, which was disappointing, but not the hotel's fault. Standard room were a bit too small, but the overall spaciousness of the hotel made up for it. WIFI sketchy in the rooms. Dont let these comments put you off though. Its a great place.
Excellent location with nice view over town and a very nice garden/pool.
Terrible polyester shag in the room.
Although the service wasn't great and there were loads of things not available I assume this was due to it being September. A lovely hotel but there wasn't enough staff and service was slow
Old fort with own church, tastefully restored and maintained. Rooms are very comfortable if a little small. Chaves is quaint and charming, but appears to be falling apart....
Restaurant did not reflect the rest of the building. A little like Spanish hotels in the 60's Food was however competent and service friendly
Great building in a great location at the heart of Chaves. Excellent pool, wifi actually worked there. Breakfast is great and has lots of portuguese products, variety of bread is good. Private parking and lots of space.
Wifi didn't workshop properly, it was very slow. Our room was a bit cramped. Cakes for breakfast are not homemade, they should be better for the hotel quality.
Could'nt fault the place
No picks not even crisps to munch with glass wine at the hotel bar. But everything else perfect .
Hotel itself, staff members, peaceful place to spend a few days...
The calm and historical atmosphere.
A few disturbing guests at night.
We would recommend this hotel,stunning, stunning, stunning!!!!!!!!
+ 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.
