Lovely hotel -- beautifully restored villa and mill turned into an elegant and charming hotel. Staff is friendly and helpful. Restaurant food (breakfast buffet, bar, dinner) all excellent. The spa facilities are a treat. We enjoyed our stay here very much.

Charming hotel located in a historical building. Renovated with a lot of taste. Big rooms, quite with a nice view. Big SPA with an outside pool. Breakfast not very big but in a nice room. 10 mins by car to the city cenntre.

Great location nice ambiance and very helpful staff. Food at the restaurant is great. The rooms are good just need to be renovated. The total ambiance is relaxing and the views are outstanding. I would recommend to everyone.

The hotel is lovely all the staff as so many people have already mentioned are amazing, nothing is too much trouble. We went for my sons 30th birthday, he arrived early in the morning before check in time and they allowed him to have a complimentary breakfast. The staff also helped us to decorate his room with balloons etc. During his stay they also took a bottle of champagne and strawberries to his room which we thought was a nice touch. The hotel itself is beautiful and the rooms are lovely, we had a river view which was very nice. It was March so the outside pool area was closed but I would imagine in the summer it would be amazing. We would definitely go back.

This hotel was stunning and the staff were wonderful. The main palace was beautiful. Our room was in the former factory beside the palace, but we enjoyed breakfast each morning in the palace. It is not in the city center, but is only a 10 minute taxi/Uber ride away.

we spent a wonderful 4 days here.The hotel is beautiful ,situated right on the douro river.The staff were well trained and professional.Breakfasts were lovely and the rooms were large, comfortable and spotless.

Great place, wonderful building, nice view, very good breakfast, nice staff. Everyone was very nice and polite. Nice bed but I would prefer to have only one mattress but still comfortable. Loved the pillows and sheets. No slippers, we had to ask for one. Very romantic.

The sum up of both results in a great customer experience. All hotel personnel was very friendly and genuinely happy to support offering different options. Also the location and peaceful surroundings were great. Hotel is located 3 kms west from Luiz I bridge which BTW is a very recommended running track besides Douro river. I felt very happy to experience a hotel from the Pestana Group for the first time.

Beautiful hotel on side of the river. Excellent customer service. Very good food in restaurant. Free courtesy minibus to centre of Porto in morning and returns in afternoon or evening. Journey takes about 15 to 20 minutes or about 7 Euros by Taxi.

Beautiful Hotel and the staff were very helpful , would recommend this hotel once you know it is 10 mins from the centre, but taxi's are cheap . Breakfast was a great plenty of choice and service excellent . Well worth a visit
