Seteais Palace was built in the late eighteenth century for Daniel Gildemeester, Dutch Consul in Portugal. The palace was extended in the early nineteenth century when it belonged to Dom Diogo de Meneses Vito Joseph Noronha Coutinho, Marquis of Marialva. He built the left wing of the palace and its majestic arch (in 1802) in honor of the visit of Dom João VI, Prince Regent, and Queen Carlota Joaquina. It's a stately neo-classical palace built by the architect José da Costa e Silva. The interior has undergone several restorations has a room frescoed with mythological motifs. The palace gardens are simply stunning, well kept and beautiful. From the garden overlooking the main facade is Pena Palace and the Castle above the mountain and in the garden on the other side of the palace there is a nice view of the surroundings, Palace Monsterrate and sea. Very, very nice. Today it is a fabulous 5 star hotel (one of the best in Portugal) belonging to the Tivoli Portuguese hotel chain, but it is being completely renovated.
We were having dinner there one night and loved it. Excellent dishes with very good presentation and very friendly. The price was 20-35 euros depending on if you drink wine and have a dessert. For us it only cost 19 euro with water. It's a place, that although isn't very cheap, is well worth it.

The best thing about this hotel is its location and parking, which is guarded and in front of the hotel. It's less than one minute from the square where the tour buses depart from, close to transportation, the tourist office, and cafes if you don't have your car with you. However, keep in mind that the hotel is getting on a bit, so the quality might not be what you'd expect from a 4 star. Still, it's fine as a place to sleep, and I wouldn't hesitate to go back!
