We stayed at CH hotel for three days and we loved it. One of the best hotels I ever stayed at. Clean, spacious, great continental breakfast, and very friendly staff. Great stay for families with children. The view of the center of town is also extremely beautiful. Highly recommend this hotel 👍👍

I have stayed in Portugal quite a few times and I know that in some small towns it can be hard to get a good room. Not the case here. The hotel is in the centre of downtown and overlooks a beautiful town square. Good restaurants around the hotel. The front desk staff were great (I think they may have...

We'd never stayed in Pombal before, but this hotel was a real find, as most reviews have explained its not difficult to find, but the car park is!. Its a challenge to drive into and more of a challenge to drive out of!. But the hotel is well worth the price, we stayed for 4 nights and we upgraded to...

Well, when we mentioned our plans of a stopover in Pombal to the receptionist at our Lisbon hotel he said he’d never heard about this place before. But there is no question about it that this town locatedhalf way between the Portuguese capital and Porto in the country’s north is worth a visit. We loved the castle (Castilio de Pombal)...

This is a great place to stay. We were so surprised when we were shown our room. Spacious is the word. Staff are really friendly and go out of their way to help. Right in the centre of town, near the railway station and close to banks, restaurants and the fort is just up the hill. And the best bath...

The overall experience was excellent. Got surprised with the view to the city hall and church. Recommend to go to the terrace in 4th floor to enjoy the view and to take some panoramic photos. If you are a coffee lover ( like me) take note you can request expresso during breakfeast ;)

This hotel is excellent. The rooms are very confortable. You can't find a better breakfast on a hotel around here and staff is very polite. There is only one thing that the mayor should address. It is the parking situation in front of the hotel. There are only 2 parking spots and they are always taken. People just park there....

Friendly check-in. Large, comfortable bed in a large, clean, comfortable room - the balcony even had 2 chairs! Functioning, quiet, air-con and nicely situated in the centre of the town. Varied breakfast with an option to finish with coffee on a huge outside terrace overlooking the town. If we return to Pombal, this is where we'll stay,

Pombal was just a place to stay the night over on our way north, and small and unassuming town as it is, we didn't expect much by way of accommodation. Were we in for a surprise! From the outside, the hotel, situated within a commercial building facing the main square, looked no different from any small town building, low, gray,...
