                  An oasis of calm and tranquillity set in a castle and church - a wonderful place to rest up during a journey

                  Forte De São Francisco Hotel is a delightful hotel.

                • Older travelers
                  9.2

                  Very good hotel. Good price and location. Very clean and comfortable.

                  The only thing I should point out is the fact that the hotel should have a automatic coffee machine in the breakfast room.

                • Older travelers
                  7.0

                  Nice large room, good aircon, good shower. Nice pool area, good restaurant food.

                  Lots of cobbles made motorcycle access & parking a bit difficult. Poor bar service.

                  Nice pool, good location, cool rooms, good shower.

                  Cobbled parking area not good for motorcycles. Bar staff were 'missing' most of the time and drinks service wasnt good.

                  10.0

                  An excellent renovation of a very old fort, the staff spoke very good English and were always helpful. The fort oozes history. I would defiantly recommend the fort and will be going back next year.

                  Prior warning that most of the facilities would be closed until 1st June

                  7.8

                  The Hotel was perfectly fine, although we didn't like Chaves much. The staff were very friendly and the room was comfortable. The food in the Taverna was very authentic and you needed to brave to try some of the dishes!

                  The Reception is across a courtyard from the bedrooms, although their is a tunnel if the weather is bad. Breakfast is also across the courtyard. We didn't find this a problem but others might.

                  Nice location, great facilities, excellent decoration

                  Service at the "Taverna" dinner was very poor - not according to this kind of ranked hotel

                • Couple
                  9.2

                  Beautiful place. Nice rooms and huge luxurious pool. Nice breakfast.

                  The restaurant was Michelin in 2008 and 2009 - the dinner food was not worth it. Probably why they didn't get one in 2010.

                • Older travelers
                  7.8

                  An enjoyable ambience, with good service. Well appointed rooms with deligtful residenial facilities

                • Older travelers
                  7.0

                  The hotel was very nice and the swimming pool was wonderful, very large with a view of the mountains and plenty of sunloungers. We enjoyed staying somewhere with such a sense of history. The location means it is possible to walk into the little town of Chaves although there seemed to be a lack of resturaunts close by.

                  We felt the restaurant was over-priced and under standard for the meals we had. If the meals had been the quality you would expect for this class of hotel the price would have been ok but the salmon was dry with not much taste and the salad was a few lettice leaves and a couple of tomato slices. We were most disappointed. If we stayed here again we would eat somewhere else.

                • Older travelers
                  10.0

                  the way the historic buildings had been converted into a hotel with simplicity and good taste.

                • Older travelers
                  10.0

                  The view from the hotel was beautiful. The staff and the services they provided excellent. We had breakfasts and dinners at the hotel and the food on all occasions was very good quality and value. The room was comfortable. Overall the hotel was a wonderful place to stay and we would highly recommend it.

                  There wasn't anything that we did not like about this hotel. The only concern we had is that it was a little difficult to find but we had a GPS which helped.
