We went to this fabulous hotel for afternoon tea. We sat on the balcony with great views over the harbour below. Sandwiches, warm scones and cakes all delicious and served with impeccable courteous service. Visit the ladies/gents so you can walk through the amazing bar area.

We called in to Reids bar for pre-dinner G&T's. Reids still has that old colonial style luxury and there is a beautiful terrace off the bar with stunning views down the coast to Funchal centre. Timeless elegance with old-style top quality service.

Reid's is without doubt the best hotel on Madeira, not least because of the history. When you are there you can't help feeling a part of something bigger, something more civilized something that has and will be there for ever. But it could be so much better. The old facilities are well maintained but they need and upgrade everywhere, whether...

A score of four is harsh for this lovely hotel, but it’s not quite perfect and it is expensive so I don’t want to raise false expectations. People have commented that the hotel is a bit old fashioned, with an elderly clientele. There’s some truth in that although some areas such as the cocktail bar were livelier and attracted a...

Of course it's really good, of course it is the best in Madeira and of course I loved it and will return but one can't help thinking how much better it could be. The incredible charm of the main building, its veranda and overall service is not matched by the details of the decor. The main restaurant "William" has a...

Whenever we are in Funchal either on holiday or visiting by cruise ship we always make a point of calling in Reid's for a drink or two on the terrace.
