The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. They helped us book various activities. The hotel itself was beautiful, right on the river with excellent views. The hotel was spotless, service was excellent.

If I could give the 1872 River House 6 stars I would. It's that great and the owners are so accommodating and wonderful. There are just 8 rooms and they are updated to "Fairmont Hotel" type standards while retaining their old world charm. The food is amazing, the views are beautiful and the graciousness and warmth of the staff and owners is absolutely the best you'll ever experience. It's also is the most convenient location right in the center of town on the Duoro River.
