We were accommodated in a capacious upstairs room where the principal rooms of the house are situated. Plenty of hot water and good towels and bathrobes in roomy bathroom. We had none of the problems with WiFi that I read about in some earlier reviews.

The guesthouse is well situated in a quiet area only a short walk from the Castle, restaurants and the river. Free parking can be found on the narrow street outside, but you will be lucky to find a space within less than 100 metres or so from the front door. That is not really a hassle though because everything is close enough to walk to during your stay.

Friendly staff (especially Paula) and quite a homely feel to the place. It has an elegant drawing room, which is a lovely place to relax on comfy sofas with a book.

Some areas are in need of maintenance. The plunge pool was empty, the upstairs terrace cushions looked past their sell by date and the lock on our door (which lacked a hasp) was difficult to work and needed fixing.

We enjoyed our stay.

Wonderful location, quiet, loved the breakfast, language was a bit of an issue for English-only speakers. Greeting with welcome cocktail. Have an honor bar. Cute, clean, neat, and friendly. Would stay again!

What a little gem. Set in a beautiful street close to everything, Tavira house far exceeded our expectations. The entire place has cleverly thought out decor with many nuances. Hats and hats everywhere! Spotlessly clean and amenities are superb in quality and presentation. It has excellent areas in which to relax and enjoy a sundowner or your breakfast. Whilst the hardware is fantastic , the software is better. Emanuella is a star as was the French lady that did the “ early shift” ( oops forgot her name) Nothing was too much for them and albeit we had a communication issue as we did not speak Portuguese or French , we managed to communicate superbly with smiles and hand signs! Lol. Christopher the owner is really hospitable and lots of fun and everything the property is about. We did not particularly like the beaches, however this place overshadowed the mass tourism and made our stay soooo enjoyable. The food in the town is fantastic, but, my goodness, the portions are humongous!

The breakfasts everyday was varied, fresh, authentic and was served with “ happiness”. Thanks to all for an experience of style and great hospitality.

Arrived at Tavira via train and hotel was just a short walk away. Great first impressions with a warm welcome, beautiful decor and our room was ready even though we arrived before check in time! Our room name 'Mamosa' was small but decor - especially the bathroom was lovely and perfect for our short stay of just 2 nights. Great breakfast included served outside on the terrace by the very polite staff and as we we're leaving early one morning the staff even served breakfast early just for us. The location was great just a short walk into the quirky Tavira centre. Would have loved to stay in Tavira House even longer, excellent accommodation!
