  • Pousada of Palmela – Hotel Castelo de Palmela

    The magnificent hilltop setting of the Pousada Palmela hotel, part of a medieval castle, provides breathtaking views of the surrounding area

    Description

    Formerly a Convent of the Order of Santiago, nestled in a medieval castle, the Pousada of Palmela has retained its majesty and the dignity of its former use, whilst offering luxurious accommodation. The cloisters remain intact within the surrounding gallery and are now used as a haven of peace and tranquillity for guests to enjoy. The former convent rooms are now sitting rooms and the convent refectory is now the hotel dining room.

    The Hotel Palmela is situated 40 kms from Lisbon and its hilltop setting offers breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding area.

    This historic Hotel Castelo De Palmela has 28 rooms, including 7 superior rooms and 7 suites. All rooms have en-suite bathroom, air conditioning/heating, minibar, hairdryer, safe, telephone, cable TV and internet access.

    The Pousada Palmela is set in a charming hilltop town centred round the castle which was built by the Moors following their reconquest in the 12th century. It lies at the heart of one of Portugal’s famous wine producing regions.

    5 testimonials for Pousada of Palmela – Hotel Castelo de Palmela

    1. I stayed at the wonderful Pousada Palmela over 30 years ago and always wanted to come back. I finally had the opportunity to return and it was even better. We were welcomed warmly, our room was comfortable, and dinner was extremely good. There are many things I like about the Pousada: the view, the blend of the old and the new, the courtyard, the breakfast buffet, the attentive and friendly staff, the location, and much more. This time there were some new additions, such as the separate little bar that included a Fado singer one of the nights we were there. Our entire trip to Portugal was memorable, and I cannot wait to return.

    2. The location of the Pousada with its views across the surrounding countryside is absolutely superb. Once one is close to Palmela, further directions to the Pousada are not really required, all you have to do is look up to the top of the hill. Reception upon arrival was great and thereafter could not be faulted. Our rooms looked over the esplanade , used as the car park, towards the castle but any noise from the cars parking etc was not obtruisive at all. We looked at the evening meal menu but it seemed to be pricey for what was on offer. Possibly a table d’hotel menu could have offered a more attractive option. We ate in a couple of restaurants within a few hundred yards of the hotel, enjoyed them thoroughly and the stroll back up the hill towards the flood-lit castle was delightful. My overall comment is that the conversion of the convent has been very well done retaining its old features very tastefully.We only really visit Portugal for golfing breaks and therefore it is the location of the Pousada relative to the golf courses that is the deciding factor. If we play the local golf courses again, I would certainly stay at the Pousada de Castelo de Palmela.

    3. I had stayed here before with a wine tasting group but this time with my wife. The staff at reception were great , the room comfortable and of course the views were to die for . We had dinner in the main restaurant which was very good so we would recommend this pousada

    4. My Wife and I stayed again in this very nice hotel, we fully recommend the Great view, great history and so close to Lisbon. The staff are very friendly and we always feel welcome here as for any other Pousada in Portugal. We can fully recommend this Hotel.

    5. The Pousada Palmela is an effortlessly elegant hotel with attentive, efficient and knowlegable staff and an accomplished kitchen. The atmosphere is relaxed and calm so it is a good place to recharge surrounded by magnificent architecture and scenery. The suites are well worth the extra cost and dinner in the restaurant should be enjoyed at least once during your stay. Front desk is welcoming and full of good advice about what to see and do in the area. I’ll be recommending it to all my friends and family.
