Solar Do Castelo has to be one of the best hotels I have stayed at. The setting is fantastic - right in the castle and about a 20-30 minute walk down the hill into the town. I have read in some other reviews that the hill might be a problem. I can understand this if you have mobility problems but honestly for anyone of average fitness it is no trouble at all.
The staff are all incredibly friendly and helpful. The rooms are a good size and kept clean. You will never be stuck for something to eat or drink - tea and coffee are available all day and there is an honesty bar in the lobby, even complimentary port in the room! Breakfast lasts much later than in many other hotels - buffet until 12:00 and continental breakfast at any time. As well as this, if the weather is good you get to eat in the beautiful courtyard with the castle's resident peacocks walking around. The breakfast selection is not huge but covers all the standard things you would want - fruit, cold meats, cheese, pastries, cereal and cooked bacon, sausage and scrambled eggs.
We would not hesitate to go back again. If you are looking for a relaxing stay in a memorable location and don't mind a little bit of walking then you won't find any better than this!
