The hotel was a little tired but the staff were very helpful and it was very clean. The restaurant was very traditional Portuguese and one night we had the buffet which included both cold and hot dishes. We went again to the restaurant and I wish I had chosen the buffet again. Having said that my husband had the fillet...

Great service. Good rooms. Very nice pool with an amazing mountain view. The pool side is a great place to be by day and by night. Great star observation spot. Great terrace with an endless view. The staff is nice. Good bar over the pool with caipirinhas and ice creams.

I loved waking up to see the sunrise on that plain view from the hotel room. The breakfast is tasty. Welcoming and friendly staff. I just think that there was an error in not having built the pool with end in sight. It would have been espetecular with those views! I leave an image just in case will serve as...

Bad service and no value for money!! Sloppy service in the restaurants, and the breakfast is way bellow the standard of a 4 star Hotel, as this Hotel its supposed to be. Although, some nice views to the mountains and Covilhã.

We stopped here on our tour of Portugal – with another group of British bikers who were using the same ferry crossings as us. The rooms were large, clean and comfortable. The views are spectacular, as it's up on the side of the mountain. There's a good pool with the million-dollar views, too. It's a really good place to stay,...

We stood in the hotel for the weekend, and it's a totally gem in Portugal. In the highest mountain in Portugal it has (probably) the highest pool in Portugal as well, which is quite nice where one can spend and enjoyable afternoon. At night, we enjoyed a couple of beers in the balcony bar, which has the most amazing view...

Stayed at the Hotel Dos Carqueijais on Sunday 5th April. Firstly the hotel is about 4 miles from the centre of Covilha, up a very steep winding road. I wouldn't recommend walking to it, especially with luggage or rucksacks as we had. We stayed at this hotel as a first pit stop as we were going further into the Serre...
