We loved it

Reviewed 23 november, 2021

What’s not to like: beautiful restored building, lovely staff, great included breakfast, huge room with view of the Oliveira Square and the imposing ancient church, and in the heart of the amazing old section of Guimaraes. We stayed in 5 hotels during our two weeks in Portugal and this may have been the best one.

Ehm, not what I was expecting

Reviewed 26 october, 2021

My partner and I booked for a night. We had watched this couple ( stay classy) holiday blogs. We were over the moon to be able to stay. Parking is really just around the corner as the receptionist will tell you, beware though,the men in parking are a little condescending, and said no this wasn’t for parking and will probably wave you in the wrong direction but follow the little map she gives you and park the car, do not doubt your at nav. Anyway once parked we returned to the hotel. Room was lovely, shower was a bit of a soo to turn on and off. Not many sockets to be found but once we moved a little bit of the furniture, bobs ya uncle 👍. Now breakfast on the other hand was a real let down. Definitely not shown as on vlog. 1 girl sat us down and said what do you want to eat, we just said eggs as we were not sure of what else was on offer. Restaurant breakfast room was pretty small but I made my way to the continental part as she had told us to. The coffee was cold. There wasn’t any crockery for cereal. The orange juice was empty. I had 2 glasses of water, which was warm. There was a toaster which was turned off. She returned 15 mins later with a scrambled fried egg. We ate and checked out . And collected our car, the gentleman on the parking part were still as unfriendly as the previous day. I can only rate this on our experience, but the lady on the desk was very nice and the location was fantastic.

Sadly, reinventing this hotel has failed

Reviewed 21 july, 2021

Location: exceptional. But access by vehicle is restricted. Reception/check-in: assertive, incompetent, efficious (who needs to know, at check-in, that the first bottle of water is free/gratis (it says that in the room, anyway); summary: all rather unpleasant, and unnecessary. Bedroom: larger than normal; massive bed; good quality sheets and pillows; lighting - bizarre; decoration: unattractive and pointless - the clothes washing hanging out the windows of the house on the other side of the street was more colourful, and more interesting, than the screen print above the desk area. Power points/sockets: not easy to find, nor to use. Why, in this day and age, in a fully-refurbished (and apparently expensively-refurbished!) 4-star accommodation, does one have to crawl around on the floor to plug in phones, laptop, etc. Airconditioning: it worked for some of the time (that could have been my fault - I committed the criminal sin of touching one of the buttons on the control panel). 'Throws' on the bed: in my judgement these were totally unnecessary; they did not look at all special, and I doubt if guests use them. And they were a hoorid dirty-beige colour. The Bathroom: well, here goes, with both barrels! One virtually has to be an Olympic athlete just to get into the bath in order to work out how to operate the shower (very nice showers); then the bath is slippery - great care has to be exercised in order not to have a fall; then one has to work out how to get out of the bath without sort of crashing out, or being foolish enough to hold the towel rail - that will certainly come out of the wall with the slighest pressure or weight on it.. Again, a major design/decoration fault. The Basin: completely useless, with water spraying everywhere. wetting the rack underneath, the floor, the bathrobes, etc., etc. - a design disaster, and a housemaid's nightmare. Next, the Lavatory: useless, should be replaced immediately; bad design, too small, probably quite expensive, uncomfortable, not even ergonomically appropriate - just useless! And there was no bidet...........The night light in the bathroom was a good feature. General decor: not to my taste, at all. It appears to me that everything in this Hotel is grey - not a happy colour at all. The flooring on the ground floor - painted tiles, and carpets - grey. Curtains/nets in the bedroom - grey, and dirty-looking. Decor in the Common areas on the ground floor - "the book theme". A failed flash of imagination from some interiors specialist (Paulo Lobo?). The chairs are upholstered in fabrics of varying shades of grey. Bleak!! Grim!! And the chairs are too low, and invariably too soft - if you manage to get into one, it is actually quite difficult to get out!! As a consequence I do not expect that many guests use them - at all. In my three-day stay I was the only guest who I ever witnessed sit in one of those chairs. Management: I never saw anybody - not one soul - who appeared in any shape or form to be managing the place: reception/housekeeping/the bar/ the facilities on the terrace/the restaurant, etc., etc. The Welcome Letter left on the desk in my room was strangely anonymous - no names, no signature................. Had the latest General Manager done a runner, I ask? It seems to me that there has been very little attention actually paid to the profile of cutomers/guests who book and stay at this hotel. It is obvious that a lot of money has been spent on refurbishing the facilities - but the exact needs of guests have not been given sufficient priority, and addressed accordingly. In conclusion, I cannot recomend this hotel and its facilities. The Owner, and the Interior Designer, have a lot to answer for.

It is hard to find a place that is exactly in the city's historic centre, has all the modern conveniences (and this includes the pandemic situation measures as well), is exquisite on what regards decoration and is run by efficient friendly staff. We did not have the opportunity to have a meal at the restaurant but, from what we have seen, it seems to be coherent with the rest. Two negative points though: distance from the parking place and the unavailability of someone who could help us take our luggage to the car. However, this will not prevent us from returning.
