Exceptional- stay here for the best service!
We can’t say enough about this hotel. Staff was beyond exceptional. They went above and beyond to make everything perfect. Caroline and Pedro were great. If you are doing a river cruise, you can walk across the street and board. The rooms were exceptional. Restaurant was so good we ate there twice but came back because Paolo and Anna made it a wonderful experience. We had Paolo order for us and he did not disappoint. This hotel is a treasure and is right in the heart of this square. You can walk to many things. Breakfast was included and it was 5 stars! We already recommended to friends. I felt like we were saying good bye to old friends when we left. Pedro even offered to take our luggage to the ship for us. We declined but it was the offer! Caroline helped with everything. If you are in Porto or Gia stay here.

What a view
Absolutely stunning property in a fantastic location. Step out into the riverside walk with bars and restaurants and Port wine tastings and a great view. Do pay extra for the view rooms, totally worth it!

4/10 Fair

Massively over-priced for incredibly poor service
For over 250€ per night I'd expect a lot better. All the reception staff were good, friendly and helpful. However, the housekeeping was non-existent. Despite indicating that we'd like our room refreshed 2 days running it was not done. Housekeeping eventually turned up at gone 4pm each day to do it, and expected us to vacate the room at their convenience to do so. We had vacated the room for between 4 and 5 hours each day, and nothing was done. Breakfast was good aside from having to queue for 10 minutes to get a cup of coffee from their one and only machine. A machine that had no instruction on how to use it. Utterly shambolic

The service at the Lodge Hotel was amongst the best I've received over many years travelling all over the world. Every staff member we spoke to was helpful, friendly and skilled. We wished we could stay longer.
