We recently attended a wedding in Sintra & were recommended to the SIntra Boutique Hotel by friends & decided to make it a long weekend. The hotel is easy to find and despite being warned of limited parking, we were able to find the hotel easily & park outside every day of our stay. Upon arrival (4 hours before the official check in time) we asked if we could leave our bags and explore the area but were told we could already access our room as it was ready early. The room was immaculately clean and tidy, fresh and airy, with a huge comfortable twin/double bed and pillow menu. The view from the room across to the town centre and valley were stunning although I dont think we would have been comfortable having the windows open had the children been with us as they were very low indeed.
Breakfast was excellent with a fantastic variety of fresh food, fruit, pastries, nice coffee etc, although the one evening we ate in the restaurant the meal was considerably below what I expected considering what the menu offering was... I think this was most likely due to the fact that we were in a large group (12) and they were used to serving couples.
In hindsight I would have gone to the restaurant/bar across the street in the square which was brilliant (we had eaten there at lunch time). In the evening they could tell we wanted to stay and invited us onto the roof terrace which had not formally been opened to the public as they were just finishing work on it & it was excellent... beautiful views, reasonable prices & lovely evening sunshine with great service. Its also worth noting that in Sintra we were told its not customary to leave a tip although we did as we were very happy.
The hotel service was great & they went above and beyond their roles by booking tickets for the segway tours etc on our behalf, arranging taxis etc & I have nothing but praise for their helpfulness & can-do attitudes. The only improvements would be in the restaurant in the evenings & maybe the presence of a better bar/relaxtion area...
Thank you very much!
