    Everything was perfect.

    The staff were very friendly and helpful. The property is in a quiet rural location with very interesting artefacts in the public rooms. We have stayed before and would definitely stay again.

    The place is a gem. The decor is amazing, the suite was perfect, with temperature control working wonderfully, the location is massively beautiful, the staff is fully prepared, also from the History perspective, and the breakfast is very good. We'll definitively go again!!

    Breakfast average. Not a huge amount to do in this part of Portugal although Marvao is interesting location with great views.

    Staff (Lucia and Anna) were fantastic. Couldn't be more friendly or helpful. Comfortable room. Fantastic fireplace in main lounge and interesting antiques throughout property.

    The pillows were a little bit soft and lumpy, the bed was a tad hard.

    I loved the ambience, the hotel was like a personal museum. The staff were amazing sourcing my gluten free requirements for breakfast, very friendly. The pool was great and we were upgraded to a suite as we were staying for so long, lovely experience.
