It's difficult to describe exactly what makes Reid's such a wonderful place to stay. It could be the friendly and attentive staff, the hotel decor and excellent rooms, the various eating options, afternoon tea, the lovely pool area or sea bathing option, its position overlooking harbour and sea or just the general calm that pervades the hotel. Of course, it's...

So many hotels claim 'world class' status. Belmond Reid's Palace really deserves the accolade! Fantastic location, friendly and helpful staff and wonderful rooms. If tips were expected, there was no evidence of this, which I personally find very off-putting. The service was great because the people were great. Two lovely pools plus a sea pool at sea level which we...

I am so glad we chose Reid's Palace for our November escape from the UK weather. What a fantastic hotel. If you are looking for somewhere to be pampered in peace then look no further. It is expensive but worth every penny. It was my husband's birthday during our stay and we were presented with sparkling wine in our room,...

Having always wanted to stay here we took a five day break. Faded elegance with old world charm. Our bedroom was beautifully appointed with a large marble walled bathroom. We were staying in a second floor room in the west wing. The food and service are excellent, nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. Due to rainy...

Our first time in Madeira and what an introduction. This hotel has a lot of British history. In many ways it is old fashioned, but the service levels and general quality are superb.

This hotel has history, style and, of course, a lot of people will have differing opinions. However, the service and quality of rooms and other amenities are second to none. The rooms in the older part of the hotel are preferable to the new wing. The pool area is very lovely and the surrounding gardens and cliff top location are...

Only a 3 night stay but so relaxing. We've visited previously when cruising so we knew what to expect but it was even better. A warm welcome awaited us, with a personal escort to the room but we had a delightful carafe of sherry and local cakes to revive us after our travels. The bars are delightful, the service excellent,...
