A truly special week at Reids... A beautiful and relaxing place to stay- friendly and attentive service; attention to detail in every way. The restaurants and afternoon tea on the terrace are a must! A place to return to-

Reid's Palace is excellent. Beautiful grounds, friendly and helpful staff, great food - you should just see the breakfasts - and fine views over the Bay. Madeira has a crazy Hotel Star system, with many hotels being graded 5 stars which in the UK might manage 2 stars. You only have to be by the pool and look out at... More

We have just spent the weekend at Reid's for my wife's birthday. As ever, completely faultless. Flowers and champagne in our room on her birthday! We had dinner at the pool on Saturday and it was great. As ever, the staff are outstanding. This is the only place to stay in Madeira.

The Hotel is unchanged in terms of service and style. The ambience is wonderful. Location and gardens make for a superior residence. The only hotel that I have stayed in that matches the personality of Reids, is The Mount Nelson in Cape Town. I was delighted to see that they had retained the "museum". area with the whole story of... More

If you stay inside the hotel or in the garden and do not look outside towards the newest buildings in town,you could imagine yourself being in the 1930's.

I have visited many top hotels. Our recent and 1st ever visit to Reid's Palace was the best to date. We stayed for a week on half board. The combination of an historic building in beautiful cliff top location along with excellent staff and superb food is hard to beat. The hotel has beautiful gardens. Antique furniture and paintings indoors.... More

We came for a week to celebrate a significant anniversary and took away seven days of wonderful memories. Reid's has always been known as a Palace but is really more of a spacious country house, in a fabulous location, at which you are a special guest. The first contrast you notice (compared with an ordinary resort hotel) is that there... More

Is Reid's the best hotel property in the world? Almost certainly not. Does it deliver the best hotel service experience in the world right now? Quite possibly yes. Perched on a cliff ledge overlooking the charming but not exactly picturesque city of Funchal, Reid's Palace is a kind of living memorial to the Madeira of the 1920s. A key stopping... More

Our first trip to Madeira and Reid's was the perfect choice of hotel. We could not fault anything. The staff helped make this an excellent stay and they cannot do enough for you.We had a Delux room on the 5th floor.
