We spent a week here over Easter, which coincided with a major wedding anniversary. We arrived early - about 11.00 am but were welcomed and looked after wonderfully, being given coffee on the terrace whilst they made our room ready. This was how things continued as we found that all the staff went out of their way to be friendly,...

My wife and I have just returned from a very enjoyable week's stay at QSJ, it was very relaxing enjoying the elegant surroundings and great service. The hotel itself is a more modern building than the Quinta in who's grounds it is built but it still retains the elegance you would expect from the old building, big sofas and armchairs...

This hotel is a little gem, hidden away just outside the center of the city. The room was very nice, the staff was the most courteous and helpful I have ever experienced, and the restaurant was excellent. Especially the breakfast! Great place if you want a more quiet hotel experience than at the big Lido hotels.
