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).

"Lunch at the Pousada"
Had lunch at the Pousada, excellent service by our server Rui Pinto. The food was quite amazing, loved everything from the entree to the dessert. Even the house wine was quite nice. The restaurant had an amazing view of the valley and having a sunny day in the middle of November put the icing on the cake.
"Beautiful and impresive"
The place itself is very nice and the atmosphere is of a real old convent, but quite modern still. Ample parking and very attentive and helpful staff. Every enormous room is named after a monk. Room amnities have everything one might need in an hotel room, and than some. Breakfast was nice. Dinner was very nice, though a little "Stuffy", and priced very highly. It is quite difficult to eat elswhere when you stay there...
The rooms and amenities were first rate- the staff attentive and the restaurant excellent- in the heart of the “historic villages of Portugal”follow the Pousada signs once the GPS gets you up the hill.
"Hidden Pousada , worth being discovered."
Beautiful location, very professional and attentive staff, wonderful food with local and traditional products . Better use a good GPS to find it. Wonderful views from the dining room. A bit expensive.
After two weeks in Portugal, this was our most 'ordinary' hotel. Perhaps this was because every other hotel we have stayed in has been either family-run or owner-managed. The Pousada chain of hotels are state-run and it shows. The staff do their job but are not particularly welcoming and the whole place felt a bit tired. The restaurant food was very good, but also very expensive by Portuguese standards. We have had other excellent meals (for example Mil-Homens near Marvao) for half the cost of this place. Having said all tis, the Pousada is probably the best option in Belmonte, but don't expect too much.
