Four days of fine dining, luxurious comfort and thorough pampering. Panoramic view from our balcony was breathtaking. If you only do this once in a lifetime, it's worth it. A truly impressive experience!

My experience (a weekend with my Wife) was great: top level service, very good location, upscale facilities but ... it could be improved as follows: - even for a short stay avoid the "charming room" : it is very small and you have not so much room to store your belongings - if you are willing to benefit from the...

We booked last minute through Sovereign, and everything went like clockwork, from the use of special lounge at Bristol airport, comfortable flights and chauffeur transport awaiting us on arrival. Reids would normally be outside of what we would spend for a week`s break, but it was worth every penny. Nothing there is cheap, but what we got for our money... More

This was our second visit to this superb hotel and there is no doubt in my mind that we shall return. We have for a long time prided ourselves in the fact that we very rarely return to a destination unless it is one of our sailing haunts. Madeira and particularly Reid's has put a stop to that!
