The Shipyard was born like the island trees, from scratch. Using the carpentry wood that was left, we built a safe harbor for you and your family and friends at Terceira Island, Azores. Shipyard Angra takes inspiration from the nautical theme, very present in the island. OFICINA DA ESQUINA SIGNED BY CHEF VÍTOR SOBRAL Oficina is our restaurant. Signed by chef Vítor Sobral, a renowned Portuguese Chef, who intended to bring a bit of the mainland to the cultural capital of Azores.

Don’t be put off by some negative reviews on here, sometimes people are afraid to talk to staff about issues and will find fault in everything, the hotel is new, it’s modern and sleek.
The staff are hard working and will go the extra mile to find you restaurants, day trips and impart their local knowledge.
The hotel is a great concept your room being like a small modern apartment, all cupboards and drawers are the push and they open, no handles. The kitchenette boasts a microwave, hob, fridge, kettle and toaster. There is also plenty of crockery, pans and cutlery
(No corkscrew though) and tea towels (washing up liquid and sponge supplied). It was lovely to grab lunch on the balcony or to have a quick snack.
The curtains are on an electric track and very easy to operate. There was no view from our room but to brighten up the bare concrete wall it had a mural painted on it, which gave it a quirky feel, the only drawback to our room was the constant hum of a generator if you opened the doors or sat on the balcony.
The bathroom was lovely with a walk in shower, toiletries by Rituals, robes and large white towels. Hairdryer under the sink and a light up make up mirror.
There is a restaurant at the hotel which is amazing, however you do need to book.. or you can sit at the tables by the door and have a night cap if you have eaten somewhere else.
Breakfast is served as a base then you order the extras you require, a jug of coffee per person, fresh juice and fruit, beautiful bread and a selection of local cheeses with the most glorious butter!!
They will always offer you extra coffee or juice if you require.
The Shipyard is not in the town but a slow 15/20min walk will bring you to the main streets. It is a climb back up for us older people but take it easy and once at the stop of the steps you can sit for a few minutes with the hotel in view. I loved the staff here, so personable and friendly.. I definitely would return maybe not for 7 nights but definitely for a few nights before moving to another part of the island.

We had a great stay at The Shipyard. First of all the staff were just so pleasant, friendly and went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and accommodating. The lovely receptionist even called around and made reservations for us which was so helpful and much appreciated. The hotel itself is very modern - both in look and technology. The apartment we stayed in was a one bedroom and perfect for 3 of us with a pull out bed in the living room. The location is in a quiet area right on the edge of town, an easy 10 minute walk to the center, as well as easy to drive to and park in their garage. Also, we ate at the restaurant one night and it was actually one of the best meals we had - a little more modern than the typical fair but also felt traditional and local. Amazing food and service. Would highly recommend!

This place was excellent for a family vacation. The hotel has large, modern rooms and a tasty sit-down breakfast. Breakfast is table service with a nice selection of juices, eggs, and local cheeses. This is probably the most modern hotel on the island. Checkin and checkout was fast & easy. Our rooms felt like real apartments with separate dining/cooking spaces, bedrooms and enough seating for a group to hang out together. Parking was free in the garage beneath the hotel. The location is nice a walkable distance to the entire city although not directly in the city center with some useful retail and food around. The hotel staff were helpful in arranging some restaurants for our group. If I had to point out some minor downsides - the gym is not yet fully furnished and there is some minimal noise from the street. I didn’t get to try the hotel restaurant but apparently it is a highlight of the hotel. We left feeling very happy. The Shipyard was a strong value.

A superb hotel for our stay in Terceira for 3 nights. We stayed in a large one bedroom apartment which had a small kitchenette/living area and huge bathroom. The free garage parking was appreciated in an area with limited parking. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the old town.
Our apartment was on the second floor with a large glass fronted balcony which overlooked the boat yard and sea beyond.
The staff were excellent from the moment we arrived with reception providing directions to the secure underground parking for our car, the restaurant staff who were friendly, helpful and professional and housekeeping.
The breakfast was superb it included a large buffet with everything from local cheeses and cold meats, bread, pastries and even fresh honey draining from the honey comb. There was also a cooked breakfast on offer but as the buffet was great we didn't go with cooked option. We also appreciated the option to have a barista made coffee with breakfast if desired.

Poor experience on arrival, allocated room on third floor but key fob didn’t work, back to reception who checked and said it was the wrong room and gave us one on first floor. Key fob did not work for the new room so back to reception again. Receptionist blamed morning staff. Room balcony sited below a car park so view of concrete wall and sound of cars if opened the door.
Hotel felt designed for show, not for customer experience. Very dark inside. Car park lights did not stay on when getting bags out of car.
Breakfast very limited choice, low quality fruit offered, coffee served from tiny jug for two people with large cup so only a quarter full.
Manager rationalised why there were problems: very busy with customers checking in and out, trainee staff and covid delays to training.
Bizarre set up. Would not go back.

A fabulous hotel. The rooms are very spacious with free Wi-Fi, underground car park, use of bicycles, we didn’t try them. The food in the restaurant is absolutely delicious and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Our room had Bluetooth speakers in the ceilings, which was a nice touch.

This hotel is new and the rooms are beyond your expectation! They are large with a large TV resting space where the couch is also a sofa bed, great for families! There is also a small kitchen with everything you need: microwave, toaster, fridge, coffee maker and they provide a bottle of water and some wonderful cupcake snacks upon your arrival! Cleaning service daily and laundry service upon request. It was beautifully decorated with very well made furniture. We will always book here!
The breakfast is outstanding! Starts with fresh fruit juice and flavor change daily! Strawberry and Carrot/Apple is the best in my opinion. Appetizers are also very good with some great Portuguese wine which their selection is incredible!

The Shipyard is a really nice new hotel with an interest, modern design.
Location is perfect for the city, quiet, but in walking distance of everything including restaurants, beach and hiking trails. Coming with a rental car it was perfect with free parking under the hotel. We stayed in a studio, which was large well equipped including the small kitchen with a very comfortable bed. We stayed during August and it was quite warm, the A/C was struggling a bit, but that seemed to be a general problem in the hotel. The only slightly disappointing thing was the breakfast, not buffet, but table service – and except the fresh juice, it was rather dull.
Would stay again, but cook our own breakfast 😉

Two couples, we stayed four nights, had a two bedroom apartment on the second floor. It was FABULOUS, couldn't fault the hotel at all. The apartment was huge, spotless and wonderfully comfortable with a balcony that surrounded the entire apartment. The hotel staff were all delightful, friendly and so helpful and full of ideas on what to do on the island. We will return.

We stayed at the hotel on the New Year's Eve. The room was very modern and confortable with all the commodities (cook, iron, leisure). The bed is huge! Breakfast in the Hotel's Restaurant was good and all staff was very thoughtful and friendly.
Dinner at "Oficina da Esquina" on New Year's Eve was marvelous and unforgetable.
