The Pousada Convento de Belmonte represents the renovation of the Nossa Senhora da Esperança Convent dating back the 13th century. The old chapel and sacristy were transformed into a lounge and a café whose architecture stands for a mixture between harmonious historical design and contemporary hotel facilities.
The Pousada hotel has kept the Monastery's heritage unchanged. It was classified as a building of public interest in 1986, including the amphitheatre architecture layout in the pine woods on the slopes of the Esperança Mountain and the breath-taking panorama over the Cova da Veira region and the Estrela's Mountain.
Pousada Convento de Belmonte rises on the slopes of the Esperança Mountain, just 1 km far from Pedro Álvarez Cabral's birthplace: Belmonte. This accommodation is an excellent starting point for the exploration of several historical monuments scattered in the region such as the castle, the burial vault of the Cabral family, the Jewish Quarter and the natural beauty and folk traditions of the natural reserve of Estrela's Mountain (Serra da Estrela in Portuguese).

The restaurant was a sublime experience, with great and discreet service. I never had to ask for anything. The food was great and beautiful. And the view is just spectacular. Truly a slice of heaven. I only hope I get the chance to return!
"Convent on the top of a hill"
Lovely, spacious retreat at the end of a tiny village, adjacent to sera estela. Extremely quiet, restful. - at least at this time of year. We were treated well at dinner which was delicious- wild mushrooms, prawn, and a yummy local tinto.
"beautiful building in a beautiful setting"
Terrific and special place with great views from every room. Had an excellent meal at the restaurant. Would return in a heartbeat. Service was very attentive and discreet with great winw list as well.
"Terrible mouldy smell in room. Avoid Octavio room should only be used to store brooms."
Our room Octavio had a dreadful strong mouldy smell that did not dissipate despite leaving window open and air conditioner running for 2 days. I have no idea why we would have been given such a dreadful room when the hotel did not appear to be fully booked. We received a discount when booking through booking.com and can only assume this is the type of room you get when getting a slight discount. It was supposed to be a superior room not a standard room. There was nothing superior about it except the smell. Nor was the room particularly clean. This room should be used for storage purposes only as it is not fit for human habitation. Beware if you have any breathing difficulties. I don't, but felt ill for the duration of our stay. The restaurant meals were quite nice, nothing spectacular. Pretty pricy though for what it was. Breakfast was reasonable. For us it was extremely overpriced for the quality of the room and completely ruined 2 of the precious 7 nights we had in Portugal. Never again. A truly dreadful experience. Worst place we have ever stayed.
"Wonderful Wonderful -- if you pass through Belmonte"
Hotel Pousada Do Convento is a beautiful boutique hotel built into an existing pousada, or convent located hilltop high over the town of Belmonte. The bedrooms are all located in a modern annex, built to replicate the convent. Rooms are large and spacious, furnished in a modern-rustic style appropriate to the location. The common rooms and dining room are beautifully appointed, again, maintaining the integrity of the original atmosphere. We had both our dinner and breakfast at the hotel during our overnight stay -- both meals were excellent with wonderful service. A delight not to be missed, if you are passing through Belmonte.
