|If you don't enjoy staying at the Parador in Tui, you are unwell. Seek help.|

|Lovely place and great staff but watch out for that clock across the river. Chimes and plays tinny music every quarter of an hour throughout the night and spoiled our night's sleep. If possible, try and get a room away from the river.|

|Subject to the caveat below, we enjoyed our stay at this parador. The food was good and the staff were friendly. The views across the river are stunning. Tui is a lovely town and a great place to wander around and explore. The cathedral is well worth a visit. But, and it's a big but, we did not sleep at all well. The foor boards in the room above were also our ceiling and as there appeared to be no carpets we could hear every footfall only too clearly! The family (there were several of them) went to bed late and noisily. In addition the clock in the church across the river struck noisily every quarter of an hour throughout the night and as it's in Portugal, it was on a different time to ours! For these reasons we would not stay here again.|

|What wonderful culture, cuisine, hospitality, comportment, manners, views, the list goes on. A really great stay had by all, thank you so much. So often one goes away on holiday and is disappointed by something; we were truly happy with everything and relish our return.|
