The owner, Christophe, met us at the front door and immediately made us feel welcome as if it was our own home. The room was beautifully appointed. Slept great. The bathroom magnificent. The common areas are stunning with jazz playing in the background. Breakfast was... More

Every room has its own style and decor. Everything with this hotel is tip top. The inside lounge area as well as the outside terass and relaxing area are... More

Excellent service, very nice people running the hotel! The hotel and its rooms are very tastefully decorated. And the location is great: in the city center, walking distance to good restaurants. Don't forget to relax on the roof-top terrace.

Loved the location but sadly it was only available for one night - two would be perfect. It was close to walk to town and to the boat to the beautiful Tavira island beach. The house itself was beautifully renovated with a lovely rooftop patio to enjoy a glass of wine. Very good breakfast. The suite had a double bed... More

There are several inconsistencies between the information on the site and the real experience in this guest house. Yes, the location is perfect and the building has been carefully restored. But the "plunge pool" is an uninviting tank, the breakfast is not a buffet and is quite basic, and if you need to cut short your stay, for whatever reason,... More

Our first impression was not uplifting as we were looking for a hotel with car parking facilities - as had been described on the booking website that we had used. We were allocated a room on the ground floor where the windows opened out onto the road. We were tired and not at all receptive to the courteous lady who... More

Our 3rd stay and the new manager Catherina and her team are incredibly helpful and have added touches that enhance a fantastic hotel experience. The rooms are luxurious and the sun deck almost too comfortable and relaxing.
