Stayed here on night after finding it by chance. Fantastic views. Rooms are functional and clean; but could do with an update - rooms have analogue T.V. Restaurant is clean and good food. Staff are friendly, efficient & helpful. Location is a long way from any town. Lots of free parking. There are swimming pools, indoor & outdoor, tennis courts & walking trails.

If you're thinking of staying here, you should take note that this hotel is NOT where the TA map says it is - it's actually at the very top of quite a steep hill, almost next to the church.
My wife and I stayed here for a couple of days - we were somewhat surprised to find out how far it was from town - luckily the food in the restaurant isn't bad, and, for a 3-star hotel, not expensive either - during the week, (possibly only) out of season, there's an "Executive dinner" with 3 courses, drinks and coffee for just 10 euros - they even let me bring my own wine! Just around the corner on the way to the church is a small bar/snack bar for those who, like us, don't much like hotel bars.
The rooms - in fact the whole hotel - is somewhat dated - a little like a set from a 70s movie, but the beds are comfortable, the water is fast and hot, every room has a balcony, the air-con works and the views are terrific. Breakfast was pretty minimal.

Stayed here a few times when on holidays and have to say that this is the best located hotel on Mangualde city.
The rooms are nice and comfortable, the restaurant is also very well presented and the barman, João is always ready for a laugh.
My only negative feedback would be that sometimes there are lots of young kids drinking in the surrounding areas an the noise level cam be quiet annoying. I know that there is very little you can do to sort this issue, but they should be reported to the right authoritys.
I would definitely be back and looking forward to enjoy the amazing views.

PROS
- General cleanness: Everything just perfect when is about cleanness.
- Air conditioner in the bedroom: silent and efficient, despite to be a old device.
- Bedroom soundproofing: in fact it´s possible to heard the noise from the corridor, but from outside, because the hotel is on the top of a mountain and isolated, the nights are very silent.
- Location: located in the top of the mountain, it´s silent, offering good views and easy, wide and free carpark.
- The exterior swimmingpool is just great, wide with a lot of green around. Also kids swimming pool available, tennis courts and changing facilities. There is also a interior pool.
- Price value: for the price it´s a decent clean hotel to relax for a few days. Winter or summer season.
- Staff: very helpful and friendly. Exception one lady in the reception, was efficient but not very smiley. A blonde lady around 60´s.

TO BE IMPROVED:
- Only 2 power outlets, one in the toilet and one in the room. Not enough for a double room on our days, with tablet PCs, smartphones, etc to be recharged.
- No minibar in the room, could be good to have one.
- No internet in the bedroom, only in the lobby. It´s free.
- The restaurant is a little expensive. If they decide to lower the prices even for a more "normal" meal/menu, most of the guest would had dinner in the hotel restaurant.
- Toilet: the amenities are very simple, I used my own shampoo. this must be improved.
- Breakfast: to me was ok, there´s croissants, white and brown bread, cheese, ham, yogurts, cakes, cereals, coffee, milk, espresso, tea, hot chocolate and some canned fruit. But no hot food available. This can be a bad point for some guests.
- Tv channels available: just a few and portuguese on a very small and old tv, to me is ok because i didn´t spent too much time watching tv.
- The bar in the swimming pool is not well managed, limited offer and sometimes closed during the working hours of the swimming pool

CONS
- The water temperature in the shower are not permanent, always changing also the flow of water, sometime very weak, even only on second floor where was my room. This is the thing that annoyed me more during the stay.

DO I WILL RETURN?
- Yes I will, is not a posh hotel, it is in fact a simple 3 stars offering everything needed for a few days of pure relax.

I’ve stay at Senhora do Castelo for one week while working in Mangualde. I found the hotel very decent and clean. Staff was helpful and rooms although basic where good enough for my needs. The views were amazing and there were lots of places to park. Breakfast was very basic but again enough. There are several amenities in the hotel (some of them were closed like the pool, etc) and there is also a restaurant in the hotel (I found the restaurant prices a little bit exaggerated). There are some places nearby to eat (it is possible to find good meal deals from 10 euros/person) but you will need a car to go there.
