I can't recommend this hotel highly enough. The history, the ambience and the wonderful staff. From the moment we arrived until we left they could not do enough for us but also were not overbearing. We only went for a long weekend but felt like we'd been there a week and came home feeling like we'd had a holiday. Wonderful...

We stayed for 2 weeks over Christmas. A lot of discussion took place before booking. Other highly regarded hotels on this site were half the price. We visited some of them and had a meal in one. Whilst they were good, they could not compare to what Reid's was offering. Superb staff with a real can do attitude in every...

We went here for a light lunch and because we wanted to try such an iconic establishment. This is a luxury hotel, bar and restaurant and is set in its own grounds on a promontory outside of Funchal. We sat on the open terrace (open to the air but under cover), part of the cocktail bar overlooking the gardens and...

Reids is an institution - people even dress for breakfast. By the way the buffet breakfast is excellent. Lovely pools, beautiful gardens, and polite staff. There's a packed list of events, sports facilities, and a good spa. But one or two of the lesser-used public rooms smelt a bit musty, and wifi was a struggle - it necessary to replace...

Having heard so much about afternoon tea at Reids, we booked a table. The setting was lovely, the view was spectacular and the food was fine, but the service, sadly, wasn't. My friend tried to describe the sort of things that she did like in her sandwiches, which seemed to perplex the staff. They didn't offer to make anything different...
