4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Woau views over the minho river, food is a bit pricy ;the pillows are on the heavy and high side with no alternative. The tendin is very good. We are on our way to Spain and it is a good stop before proceeding. The sourrounding town is medieval like bella's in beauty and the beast. Breakfast is included and with ample of choices.

Another lovely stay in a Pousada, beautiful setting, views. Staff first class from reception to restaurant to housekeeping. We stayed in 106 very comfortable and cosy room with gorgeous views, can't wait to go back. Only small negative the restaurant was a bit cold on arrival but staff put heating on and it quickly warmed up, also they had an adjacent side sitting area with a lovely log fire. Well done to all the staff for making this a memorable nights holiday for my family.

The lobby of the posada seems to be popular for those staying in the hotel and those visiting the medieval town of Valenca. Step out onto the verandas and be dazzled by the wonderful views. We saw a lone horse in the grassy moat, as well. Beautiful rooms, and a wonderful location.

We stayed here for 1 night at the end if August. With a complimentary welcome drink in hand we upgraded to a room with a private balcony and a fabulous view over the river. The room itself was stunning, with good storage and a luxurious bathroom. We had dinner in the Pousada which was really tasty and beautifully served, though not as upmarket as other pousadas we have stayed in. There was very little open in the walled town at night, so we were very glad we chose to do this. The buffet breakfast was beautiful, with lots of choice. The staff were extremely helpful and welcoming and I would love to stay here for longer next time.

This is a lovely property within the fortress walls.  I had room 109 on the second level overlooking the Socorro Bastion, the river and the town of Tui, across the river in Spain.    There is no lift, but the staff  helps with luggage.   It has a balcony with two chairs and a table.  Their dinner was excellent and I especially enjoyed the dessert buffet. Breakfast is very nice and their coffee machine makes excellent cappuchino. Reception staff is very friendly and helpful.  Wi-fi is excellent and stable. As for shopping within the fortress walls, it is linens, linens, linens, with a few jewelry stores.  The clothing stores are so-so.   I did purchase a suitcase at one store and was able to “discuss” the price a bit since I was paying cash. I would stay at this hotel again.

Drink a coffe at the Inn 's garden of Valenca and dazzled with the best views Valenca , a closely guarded secret at the Doors of Gabiarra . The century-old bridge, Eifiel style , the Cathedral of Tuy and Rio .

Pousada hotels are incredible! Our goal is to stay in all of the hotels they offer. We often travel from Portugal to Spain and this hotel was geographically perfect as it lies on the the border. Room was a 10. Food was a 10. The view was a 10.

Understated luxury in a magnificent setting. The food was delicious and the staff excellent 😄 Service at the bar was with a smile. Special thanks to Filipe whose knowledge of the area and the history of Portugal was excellent in addition to patiently answering outlet questions

Our room with balcony overlooked the river into Tui , Spain Staff very helpful and caring ; food was very good , especially the Green cabbage soup Room was large and very spacious Well worth the visit ; great to walk through the town after the day travellers had departed

We stayed there for one nicht travelling from Spain to Porto and it was a good choice. We had a room with an excellent view over the river Minho to Spain. Our room was spacious, clean and very quite (nearly no trafic in Valença after dinner time). As the fortress of Valença is really small everything is very close - within a few minutes you can reach virtually every point within the walls. We had both dinner and breakfast in the pousada and both were excellent. We would definitively choose the pousada again.
