Positive Reviews

Lovely and comfortable rooms

To say that guests are satisfied with their rooms would be putting it mildly. They are simply thrilled to discover that this simple hotel has such lovely, spacious, clean, and modern rooms – some with exceptional views from their balconies over the town. Sleep is facilitated by huge comfortable beds and a dark and quiet environment, helped by the electric shutters and soundproof double glazing.

Excellent hospitality

The hotel seems to ooze friendliness, with guests feeling welcome and at ease. Much of this is thanks to the professional, multilingual staff, who are found to be extremely kind and attentive.

Charming location in the centre of town

Whilst many guests have never heard of Pombal before, few regret discovering this lovely historic settlement and its attractive castle. The hotel is right in the centre of town by the main place, with a nice selection of bars and restaurants nearby. The railway station is also just a matter of minutes away.

Negative Reviews

Parking can be stressful

Guests soon snap out of their carefree relaxed state when confronted by the hotel’s notorious car park challenge. Few have witnessed a car park so difficult to access and even trickier to exit. Added to the extremely steep gradients, guests have to tackle 90 degree turns and navigate into very narrow parking places. To add another degree of difficulty, the floor can be quite slippy too, risking getting guests really and truly in a spin.
