Well positioned away from the hustle of the town but within easy reach of amenities - walking into Funchal takes 20 mins but with the hotel courtesy bus a trip into the centre was easy. Staff friendly and service good. Clean and comfortable throughout.

Having just returned from a wonderful week here I find it hard to relate to some off the other reviews I've read; all i can say is that we had a lovely stay... It is a relatively small hotel whose clientèle appear to be mainly middle aged (not unusual for Madeira) and as such is a quiet and peaceful hotel;...

4th hotel of 5 but not the best but it has something unbeatable which is not the horrible access to the hotel if you go by feet. It's up a very steep hill, and you have to chose the less dangeous way because you have no walking paths in the streets, so you can get hit by a car easily....

This is the fourth time we had stayed in this hotel. Prior to this recent stay, our last visit was in 2011. What a difference we noted. The standards we knew previously have changed significantly. Whilst management did address some of the issues we had during our eight day stay, our lasting impression is that the hotel is certainly not...

The hotel is grossly understaffed and poorly managed. Departments don't seem to talk to each other - e.g. reservations to reception, reception to food and beverage. Our reservation for a room with accessible bathroom facilities was completely lost and reception staff unable to do anything about it until the following day. Dinner reservations were lost and one evening it took...

We stayed for 2 nights this week. The hotel has death trap steps up to the reception, pensioners hang on to the hand rails or you'll never make it. There is an automatic revolving door into reception which you have to be very fleet of foot to get in and out as the bruise on my arm shows! The hotel...

In July we booked this hotel for a 4 night stay in mid-September. When we arrive, we were informed that the hotel was full and that there was no room for us that night, but that they would transfer us to another hotel from their "Charming Hotels" chain to spend that night and, on the next day, they would have...

Well, it’s a question of perspective and what is an issue for you. This is a lovely property with a position to die for high on the slopes over Funchal with a commanding view over the town, the harbour and out to sea. All that is written before is pretty much the same, few staff, shower curtains too short and...

This beautiful hotel used to be of a high standard, but now the quality has dropped alot!!! The food and service are not what it was a couple of years ago. The staff are overworked and badly paid. The food is sometimes uneatable due to it's poor quality
