    The hotel is a bit old and the rooms should be refurbished.

    Hotel employees were always very nice and professional. I arrived late to Castelo de Vide, and because the check-in was until 11 p.m. by 10.30 p.m. the receptionist called and gave me directions on how to get there. The room was very clean, the pool is small but nice, and the breakfast, although nothing fancy, was OK.

    We've stayed several times. Parking is easy as is the walk into Castelo de Vide for evening restaurants. The town is old and full of character - one of the finest in the country, set in impressive scenery. The hotel has always been quite quiet during our visits but does have its busy times.

    Being within the historic town within walking distance was a bonus. Parking was easy and so was finding the hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful but as it was winter there were few other guest so no bar etc and it was too cold for the pool. The view was good, but the rooms were small. The place is older but clean.

    On the negative side: - The hotel needs to be renovated / refurbished. Starting with the reception and including the rooms. It could easily migrate to a 4 star level (and the beautiful town of Castelo de Vide definitely needs a 4 star hotel, as there is none), but renovation is urgent. - The pillows are simply horrible - almost impossible to sleep with them. My neck still hurts. The TV in the room is too small, with just a few channels. - The Wi-Fi had some problems.

    Considering that it is a 3 star, at a reasonable price, one cannot expect much ... On the positive side: - Large room, acceptable breakfast (at a 3 star level), with (apparently) natural orange juice, very close to the center (everything is walking distance), with free parking, and a small pool.

    The building seems to create a bad situation where the doors slam very easily if people do not specifically try to prevent this from happening. This meant that we were woken up every morning much earlier than we had wanted to be as we were dancing late every night at a festival in town. It was also a pity that the hotel could not have extended the hours for breakfast since it was likely that a large percentage of their guests were also at this festival. A half an hour extension would have been most welcome and unlikely that difficult for them to do. When we asked about this, we received a very unfriendly response which did not seem to appreciate the extra business that the dance festival brought to them.

    The pool was very relaxing and quiet. Unfortunately a problem with the pump closed the pool for the last days of our stay. The hotel offered free admission to the public pool across the road during this time. This was a very good thing, although the lack of shade and the boisterous crowds of people did not offer the same relaxation as the hotel pool.

    Visitors should be aware that the hotel serves breakfast only but there are some good restaurants in the town serving dinner, as well as a number of cafes, and the inhabitants are friendly.

    This was our third visit and again we found the hotel at a quiet time just after a busy Easter., but this time, the weather was warm and sunny There is plenty of parking and we were able to park by the entrance. The rooms have old fashioned charm and are kept very clean, as is typical in Portugal. The bed was comfortable. We greatly enjoyed meeting again our young receptionist friend who was brought up in England. Wi-fi in the room worked straight away without problem. Castelo de Vide is a very attractive town indeed and the hotel is just a short and level walk from the centre.

    Classical hotel with helpful staff.
    • Leisure trip

    Remarkably enough upgrading the room to a room with balcony (offered by booking.com) did wipe out our reservation of two separate beds in the room. Fortunately this could be rearranged on the spot.

    Classical hotel with helpful staff. Room, beds, bathroom, heating (in April) and balcony (and its view) are comfortable and nice. The combination of an armchair with a small table worked good for using a laptop, wifi works ok. Excellent breakfast. Nice small towncenter and a beautiful area around C. de Vide. We made a very nice trip by car from C. de Vide along Beira to Marvao (beautiful castle and village), back again to Beira and along Fadagosa (a lot of interesting birds!), Povoos e Meadas, C. de Vide to Portalegro and from Portalegro through the hills along Marvao to C. de Vide again, where we visited the castelo of C. de Vide as well. Especially the erea north of C. de Vide and Marvao was very charming during springtime (lots of flowers and active birds).
