"Nice but noisy"
Friendly, helpful staff. Nice room. Plenty of space with balcony. Next to busy street so lots of street noise. Long walk to town. Uphill return is tough for older people. Not convenient to buses so taxi into hotel from airport cost 50 Euros. Take taxi arranged by hotel for 30. Breakfasts were good but they don't know how to cook eggs.

"wonderful stay in Funchal; great location"
Wonderful accommodations. it was a bit disappointing that the hot tub is only available in the spa and that closed at 6pm! Restaurant was great. Complimentary breakfast was fabulous. Service all around was impeccable. Would stay there again in a heartbeat. Oh - and the rooms were really spacious!

"Wonderful hotel, very comfortable"
Rooms and beds were incredibly comfortable, breakfast was extensive (everything from honey cakes to dried fruit to 2 different kinds of jam to pressed watermelon juice) and staff was typically very helpful. Outdoor swimming pool was particularly nice, and we accidentally joined a water aerobics class one night. Location: hotel is located a good 15 minute walk from the city center, which wasn't a problem for us because we like looking at maps and getting a little lost. If you're the kind of person who likes to roll out of bed and be in the hustle and bustle, perhaps this isn't for you.

Lovely hotel and very nice staff. Only slight drawback is location; it's set in a hilly residential area a fair distance from local amenities. It was not a problem for us as we hired a car for our stay but it could be in the absence of own transport.

The garden is so relaxing and the hotel is very clean and comfortable and the breakfast was great, such a huge choice of food. We really enjoyed "Happy Hour" and had wonderful cocktails in the evening while sitting in the garden listening to the piano player. We can't wait to return in November.x

"All round excellent small luxury hotel"
Marketed as 5* and in terms of facilities, quality and service it fully lives up to that standard. But just a little notch down from international premium 5* like 4 Seasons or Ritz Carlton. But that's not necessarily a bad thing as it made for a more easy going feel. We found little to fault. Style is traditional classic boutique hotel rather than "modern designer". From our experience clientele seems fairly mixed but with some bias to English seniors (but that's probably typical of Madeira). We liked the location which is walking distance from central Funchal and much closer than many of the big modern 5* hotels. But for anyone who is not fit a walk to the far end of the old town may be too much. Even for us we did not fancy walking there and back to try some of the good local restaurants in the evening. But that said you don't have to dine out as the Hotel Restaurant is really excellent. Also the walk into the old town starts by crossing a busy road and then through some slightly down at heel streets. You wont feel threatened but on the other hand don't expect a 100% picturesque walk to town. Once you get to the historic part of the city the walk is rewarded. All aspects of service were excellent and that started even before we arrived when they offered to arrange our transfer from the airport. Bar had a good deal more atmosphere than some hotel bars and it was nice to sit there before and after a meal.

Lovely hotel set up a hill away from the hotel zone but still an easy downhill walk to town. Bedrooms and public areas are very elegantly decorated. We enjoyed sitting in the bar during Happy Hour and after returning from dinner in town. The gardens were lovely and the staff too. The indoor pool area was a very pleasant are to relax for an hour or 2 on the comfortable loungers. Pool was warm too.

We went to look at this hotel last November before we booked it. Everything we saw then was delivered when we stayed there this year. Good rooms, friendly staff, excellent levels of service and good bar and cocktails. Comprehensive menu for breakfast but as the town was so close we mostly ate there in one of the many good restaurants at lunchtime.

"Small, friendly and with excellent service."
Funchal is full of big, impersonal luxury hotels, but this is a little gem which we really liked from the moment we walked in. Being upgraded from a room to a junior suite helped, of course, but from what we could see the standard rooms were almost as good. The hotel is scrupulously clean, well furnished and with a good range of facilities, but what marks it out is the unfailing cheerfulness of the staff. It was my wife's birthday while we were there, though I didn't inform the hotel of this. Nevertheless, someone must have noticed the birthday card on the dresser and we returned from town that night to find a birthday cake and bottle of Madeira left in the room for us. Thoughtfulness of this order is typical of this hotel. We'll be back!

Small gardens that don't get too much sun but lovely all the same. Super bar, very comfortable and we had live piano music several nights. Great bar menu. Ate in the hotel dining room twice.

"Attractive, well-managed hotel in pleasant grounds"
Delightful hotel in attractive grounds convenient for the centre of "town" but away from the "main drag". Unfortunately close to a busy road but in a pleasant garden.Friendly and efficient staff.. Magnificent brekafasts but the quality of the "a la carte" dinner menu was disappointing. We suggest a daily dinner " set menu" changed with a more limited choice of, say, 4 starters, 4 mains and 4 desserts or offering the same menu as the bar menu for dinner in evening.. On our first evening we arrived tired and hungry and having been offered the "a la carte" menu waited more than an hour to eat a very average meal.. However the "special" events (eg Master Chef nights/Valentine's Night) were a delight & guaranteed excellent eating. The lunch time menu on the terrace was also excellent in a pleasant environment. The staff were helpful, courteous, friendly and efficient.

Near the main centre of Funichal. Pleasant grounds rather older style elegant accommodation . Very comfortable. Only drawback is steep (short!) walk back to the hotel at the end of a day. There is a courtesy bus that runs at fixed times and there are always taxis but the walk is good for you! Not near a Beach and I suspect a bit quiet for young families.

We were met at the airport (25 minutes by car) by a pleasant young man. On arrival the lady at reception took us to our room which was a spacious suite overlooking the patio and gardens, and explaining many facilities available. Each week for 5 nights the restaurant had an excellent a la carte menu; the other 2 nights were special, one specialising the food from Goa, the other allowed 4 chefs to prepare their own dishes which we then had to judge. The hotel was about 1 Km up hill from centre of town with a shuttle twice a day. We had glorious weather for 9 days except for a trip into the clouds one day.

Comfortable hotel with 2 pools and a spa. Comfortable and cosy rather than glamorous although the flower arrangements are stunning! Room 212, Magnolia Suite was charming . Lovely wooden floors and windows looking over the terrace. Didn't get time to use the spa but, from pool side it looked impressive! Both pools were clean and sunbeds very comfy! Slightly older clientele meant that we generally had sole use of them! Pleasant walk down to town and walk up was made easier by the thoughts of the lovely bar, coffee and cocktails!

As the hotel was small the staff very quickly knew who you were and were extremely helpful. The facilities were good however the swimming pools although heated were small. The walk down to the sea front and harbour took about 10mins but longer to return as the way back was very steep but became easier as the days went on.

We stayed here for 4 nights and it is one of the most friendly hotels we have stayed in. All staff were very helpful and professional, we felt that nothing was too much trouble. There was a good choice of breakfasts, though we didn't eat there in the evenings, preferring to stroll into Funchal for a meal. It's not far from the centre, but quite an uphill walk on the way back, though only a €6 taxi ride. We didn't use the spa or gym sadly, though it looked fairly well equipped the indoor pool was warm and just big enough for a relaxing swim. The 'in house tourist advisor' was a great asset, giving us a wealth of useful info, on request.

"Lovely small and friendly hotel"
A classy elegant small hotel but with many faciliities including both indoor and outdoor pool and a gym, spa and games room. From the moment we arrived at the airport where we were collected as arranged by the hotel to our sad goodbyes, we had no reason to complain and much to admire about this clean and comfortable place. Funchal is a clean,friendly welcoming place but do beware the steep hills. This would not suit everyone and whilst we enjoyed the walk down to the centre and the climb back, less mobile people would need to take one of the many taxis or buses available. Restaurants, cafes and bars abound in Funchal and trips out to the ends of the island are very worthwhile too. With its great climate and friendly people it is easy to see why some return every year.
