The hotel was comfortable, clean and had beautiful well kept gardens. The staff were charming and attentive, offering great support and assistance to my husband and I. We ate some wonderful meals which were freshly prepared and presented beautifully. The location was on top of a mountain with wonderful views.

An excellent hotel with an exceptional atmosphere, highly skilled staff. If you love golf, you must come here. The golf course as well as the golf restaurant are beautiful. And the view of Funchal roofs from the clubhouse is amazing.

We have just returned from a very nice short break (4 nights) at the Casa Velha do Palheiro. The hotel is very welcoming - we had a room in the main house which reminded me of a private residence. The decor and furnishings were of excellent standard and complimented the age of the hotel. We were delighted to be given...

Palheiro Hotel looked after us very well with excellent service and a first class restaurant.. The golf course is scenically stunning and was a delight to play. The only disappointment was the very limited shuttle service to and from Funchal.

Reviewed 2 February 2017

Set in a beautiful location, immediately next to the Palheiro Estate Gardens, this is a comfortable and small hotel (37 rooms). The breakfasts are wonderful with an amazing choice of fruit. Spa/heated swimming pool are a real bonus. Not so impressed with dinners at hotel which seemed a bit overpriced for not always first rate food.
