We discovered this litte gem of a B&B on TA. The building is located about 10-12 minutes walking from the Sintra train station. The walk is hilly and I would not recommend it for anyone with health issues but for the somewhat fit to fit it is a great way to see that side of Sintra.
The castles are viewable from the garden and not far by auto.
The B&B staff is excellent, warm friendly and willing to help in any way and converse in several languages English being one. Breakfast was a treat with the typical meats, cheeses, breads, yogurts, fruits and something special, eggs cooked to order.
They have a lovely sitting area where you can relax and catch-up on your emails with the free WiFi available. The only issue I had was the WiFi was not available en-suite.
The rooms were nicely appointed, very clean and our bath was spacious with a view overlooking the walk I mentioned earlier. Follow-up daily housekeeping was excellent and always completed before we returned from our day's adventure.
Our GPS took us right to the door but parking is on the street. The neighborhood is very safe and we never felt threatened even when walking late into the evening.
Lisbon is only a 30 minute train ride to the central station and trains run frequently. Train is a great way to get to Lisbon. you can leave your car at the B&B to avoid all of the traffic and parking fees.
So if you do not want to stay in Lisbon, but be close by, you want something other than a hotel then stay at the Casa Miradouro
