We definitely recommend Lawrence's Hotel. It is atmospheric, pretty, very comfortable and very clean. As a small hotel (about 18 rooms), it has a personal feel. It has several sitting rooms, tables and chairs on various terraces, and a very good restaurant. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, with arrangements, information, and service. Nothing that you wanted was a problem: room service, taxis, extra pillows and hangers, help with anything ... they really were great.
The location is perfect - just a few minutes from the centre of Sintra, which itself is a lovely town. It is busy with day tours during the day (the Palace shouldn't be missed), and it is lusciously quiet in the evenings.
We were three couples, so we stayed in 3 different rooms, and we all loved it. We weren't clear from our booking (through a travel agent) if breakfast was included, but apparently it was for everyone, as they never took room names/numbers. Breakfast was a good spread of cold buffet and any cooked breakfast that you wanted as well.
