Established by an Englishman in 1764, Lawrence’s Hotel is the oldest hotel on the Iberian Peninsula. It is a historical landmark in its own right, as George Lord Byron began his famous Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage while a guest in 1809, and it has housed many Portuguese writers such as Eça de Queirós who mentions it several times in his writings.
Situated only a few steps from bustle of the Sintra village centre, yet nestled against a valley filled with towering trees and murmuring brooks, Lawrence’s Hotel is perfectly situated for exploring the town or for simply relaxing.
Lawrence’s Hotel offers its guests the luxury of a fine hotel, including its own private parking facility, and modern amenities such as cable TV and free Wi-Fi throughout the premises, while maintaining the intimate old-world charm and personalized service of a country inn.
Each of the eleven rooms and five suites, some of which boast a fireplace, are individually decorated. In keeping with the hotel’s philosophy of preserving its Romantic atmosphere, here you will find rooms with names rather than numbers, keys rather than plastic cards, and beautiful polished oak floors in lieu of carpets.
You may also enjoy fine dining at our celebrated restaurant, afternoon tea in one of the inviting sitting rooms, a drink or snack in the cosy bar, or a light meal on the terrace.
