8/10 Very good

Special and lovely stay.
It is a special place to stay, lovely palace with modern annex for guest rooms. Great view, nice large rooms. Small improvements can be made in rooms, like updating the pillows. Overall a very lovely stay. Please keep in mind on Sunday evening the town is pretty much closed for business. So if you don’t plan on dining at the Pousada the options are scarce.

Paid accommodation mix up on check out.
Lovely stay with all the comforts but there was a mix up as we went to check out, i went to settle a bar bill and was presented with a full bill for the accommodation as well as the bar bill. The accommodation had previously been paid at the time of booking.

Maybe fern hotel in historic palace
Spectacular hotel in a converted 18th century palace with a beautiful garden, excellent breakfast, firm but comfortable bed, convenient indoor garage parking, pool and sauna and steam room. Wish they had a coffee/tea maker in the room and a business center with a computer.
