What to say...dinner awful, room just OK

Reviewed 15 january, 2022

I may be based in UK but lived in Brasil for 4 years, spent a couple years travelling about the country. This time here to see family (wife is from Rio) so we both know what to expect from hotels. Missus and I were with her parents and they wanted to show me this part of Brasil, of which I've not been. Amazing drive from Rio to here once out in the interior with lush forests which certainly amp up the atmosphere. On checking in, it was frankly silly. We were the only 4 in the queue and it took a ludicrous 45 mins reception thought it was just my wife and I (we did the booking on hotels.com). There was a lot of too-ing and fro-ing between staff and hotels.com to ascertain there was indeed 2 rooms booked - we even had the app showing them it's TWO rooms booked. After a stupid wait and filling in paperwork we got to our room (elevator didn't work so had to take the stairs with our suitcases). Room spacious with AC but there are no tea/coffee making facilities, no drinking water so make sure to take that yourself. TV didn't work not that we were bothered otherwise would've moaned to front desk. It's open internet so use a VPN if doing anything like banking or confidential - good consistent speeds so we could watch some Netflix on our tablet.. Grounds are also very nice, if not a little on the fake side, wonder what fellow Europeans think! Shower was a saving grace with amazing pressure and as hot (or cold) as you want....very good. Bed was incredibly comfy and we slept like babies (saved me giving 1 star). We were all very much looking forward to dinner at the taberna after reading all the reviews. Whether there's another taberna that we don't know about because if not, then I've no words on our dinner experience. Being a Friday night, we thought it'd be packed, especially since there was a wedding going on at the same time. Staff were not only moody but incredibly slow for a dining hall which was only a quarter full, they all just seemed to stand about and natter amongst themselves. We literally had to wave at them to get any form of attention. Missus and I opted for bife de ancho for two. In-laws ordered churrasco de Barao (pieces of beef, sausage and chicken) for 2. After a 30 min wait, food arrived. we could tell our med-rare beef was over....infact, it was soooo tough and over it was more leather than what was a living animal. We could also tell the quality of the meat was very poor. Asked the waiter we would want a replacement and please be sure it's med-rare. I mean, comon, whether you're at home or a chef in a busy resto, it's not difficult to grill a steak. Replacement comes. Not only had it not rested with the pool of blood on the plate but it was BLUE, like proper raw. We then said for it to be cooked so it's MED-RARE. He barked back at us declaring that's med-rare. We didn't know whether to laugh or cry. He took it away and 10 mins later gave it back but it was still on the rare side. We put up with it. By this time, in-laws had eaten their dinner and working on the sides. Our beef was simply awful quality - it comes as 3 separate steaks. We each only had about half a steak each as it was frankly, inedible. I've never come across a place which serves meat so badly. My in-laws also didn't eat all theirs either. Then we asked for bill and they took some plates away...waited 15 mins and nothing then another waiter collected some more plates and again we ask for the bill. Waited and waited and waited with a whole load of sides and empty glasses and 30 mins later another waiter came with unwanted beer to finally click we were finished and wanted the bill. Finally after about an hour just waiting for the bill were we set loose, hangry! Breakfast buffet was just ok....coffee awful (it was filter coffee but tasted like it had been around for a bit). The coffee machine wasn't working but since hardly anything seems to actually work in this hotel, we weren't surprised. I had what I think was scrambled eggs and again, inedible. How difficult is it to make eggs or steak? Anyway, left hungry once again but thankfully we were off to Petropolis and enjoyed a much better experience at the consequent hotels. Hence for the time wasted at arrival, the awful dinner (and breakie) I'm being generous and giving 2 stars and we'll never return. Shame!

Excellent for business.

The Hotel itself is beautiful and very good for business. One can choose any restaurants the hotel offers, but i sugest the one inside the very castle, restaurante do castelo. Breakfast and service of a five star hotel. I use to stay there whenever it is possible.

Absolutely perfect.

Reviewed 9 december, 2018

Everything is perfect at the hotel. The staff, the room, all the 3 restaurants and mainly the castle. A masterpiece of the brazilian architect lucio costa, all stone made with very elegant and luxurious materials as carrara marble and so.

Our room (Samurai Suite) smelt damp and mouldy. The floodlights that illuminate the property shine straight into the room, and the 'blackout curtains' supplied do nothing. When I asked for a discount after an average night's sleep, they offered nothing as I booked from an external site. What a joke.

High hopes but less than great

Reviewed 8 may, 2018

Place looks fantastic, food wasn't bad. Unfortunately our room (Samurai Suite) had a musty, damp smell which was not pleasant. There were also super-bright house lights aiming right in our window, and the 'black out' curtains supplied did nothing to keep the high powered neon illumination out. Overall not the best. When checking out I made a complaint and said I would not be leaving a positive review unless my issues were recognised. They said that because I booked thru an external site, they couldn't offer any discount. Weak
