host fantastic, room warm, bed very comfortable, great breakfast and superb location.
Everything was excellent
Breakfast was fine in the tea shop next door. Our only mistake was thinking 'English Tea Shop' means have an English cup of tea which was not like we have at home. Our own fault!
The car park is made up of very old stone which means it's uneven. Perfectly OK for any normal car but need to exercise caution with anything low. Guarda is a a difficult place to navigate and it's very easy to take a wrong turn and then you can be in difficulties.
The staff was really helpful. When I asked for some drinks and ice (there was no mini bar) she made all the effort to get me some for the evening.
No mini bar
We loved our stay! The hostess was so kind and helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable. It was nice to have parking! The location was perfectly located to all sightseeing locals
The towels had a strange smell and a bit rough
Fantastic 17th century bed and breakfast next to the amazing 14th century cathedral, all within the old walled Centro Historica area of the city of Guarda. Beautiful room with typical Portuguese furniture, super comfy bed, gorgeous linens and a bathtub! The owner Elena and her staff are exceptional and provided extra special care while I had a lousy cold. Drop back in time and stay at this magical location.
