This is a lovely hotel, within easy reach of Amarante yet in a very quiet rural location. The reception staff were all very helpful. We stayed in the original old part of the hotel and the room was large and beautifully decorated with a grand private balcony. The grounds are well maintained and the indoor pool is good. We didn't use the outdoor pool, but it looked nice. The breakfast was very good.
Our room was next door to the bar area and so noise disturbance would be a potential problem. However apart from someone trying to play 'happy birthday' on the piano one night about 11pm, the bar was very quiet during our stay.
There is little to do in the immediate area, but there are a few restaurants and the hotel do serve some 'snacks' apparently. Amarante is quite pleasant for a stroll around the old part of town and it is pretty by the river. We had a grand walk along the old disused railway ( The Ecopista I think it is called). About 18 kilometres there and back. Easy walking on a good surface with good scenery and interesting views of rural life. In fact the thing we enjoyed the most during our week in The Douro area.

Most things were adequate, but not outstanding. The plastic cups in the room instead of glass was cheap. Ours were cracked which we didn't realize until port went in and just as quickly went out. The night staff did not follow through on our request for an early breakfast, but the morning desk clerk was great. It was very nice that they fixed the early breakfast. With a little more attention to detail, such as real glasses, the hotel would be nicer. The room was smaller also than other rooms I stayed in.

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was very good.
The accommodations were nice: the room was clean, comfortable and cozy. The shared spaces were well furnished and the gardens were well preserved and very green.
The staff were very nice to us and advised us what to see and where to eat nearby.

We just came back from 5 weeks australia and this hotel in north portugal shows again quality - value how it should be. 400$ in australia means 50-60$ in portugal .. and even the quality is higher. A total surprise

Room Tip: alles is prima

The Hotel is set in its own grounds with indoor pool/gym and outdoor pool.
The staff cannot do enough for you right from reception to the room cleaning.
The rooms are of a good size clean and with side view of the outdoor pool.
The breakfast is of a good standard with a wide selection to suit everybody.
Lunch and dinner can be catered for on a limited basis but i got the feeling most people went out for dinner as we did.
In summary this is a surprising hotel and provided you have a car one well worth a visit.

Room Tip: I think that all rooms were of a very good standard.
