We had a long weekend at this hotel and were really pleased with our stay.
The hotel is very strategically located in Cascais, walking distance to all important places like train station (only 1 hour train ride to Lisbon), bus station (1 hour to Sintra, via Boca del Cabo, Europe's most western point), restaurants and amenities of Cascais and great seaside walking.
The location was our reason of selecting this hotel and we were not wrong.
The hotel has a little bit of an old worldly feel to it, some may say it's a little dated; but we liked it that way.
We had a city facing room as we couldn't afford a seafront view. Looking back on it, I think the price difference wouldn't be worth it as you have access to the same views from hotel bar and pool area when you want to. My only note is that our room was directly above the hotel entrance, therefore noisy due to the continuous traffic of people and cars.
The room was not very large but we had a huge kingsize bed and 2 chairs. The storage spaces were really limited, if we both had 2 large luggages we would struggle to find a suitable place for both.
The bathroom was large and fully functional, with dual-function bath-tub and shower and double sinks. There were complimentary toiletries and bath-robes in addition to huge towels.
The restaurant was really good. Good selection of local and international cuisines accompanied by a good wine list. We opted for the house white and were very impressed with it. 2 starters, 2 mains and a bottle of wine came to 150Euros.
The breakfast selection was generous and wide variety of selection catering for several diet choices.
The staff was helpful and tried their best to answer our questions and help; however I need to point out that if you don't specifically ask for it; they do not tell you that you can actually travel to Sintra very easily for 3Euros per person using the public transport.
I would definitely recommend this hotel because of its unique location in the city and the level of service to match its uniqueness. We hoped to have a special weekend and it certainly was a memorable one.
