Bussaco Palace Hotel

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

A refreshing location high up in the hills about a 45min drive from Coimbra. Despite having had to wait for our rooms we were well looked after by the genial bar staff. A place to experience the feeling of tranquility and good service. A walk up to the top of the nearby hill is must the amazing number of superbly made terracotta figures housed in the small houses beside the cobblestone walkway make it a spiritual experience indeed. Loved to have stayed longer. Graham Heslop

By all means stay here. How often can you stay in a gorgeous old palace, food was terrific, staff very attentive and kind, forest is beautiful and serene.

Gorgeous palace (outdated rooms & amenities) beautiful gardens and surrounding forest, overall excellent 1 night stop

A Palace that had been used by the last King of Portugal that was built around an ancient Convent has been turned into a luxury guest hotel. An excellent staff and luxury dining.
