Reids Palace Hotel is an island within an island. The service was impeccable and our room large and very comfortable. Having stayed at a different 5 star in Funchal last year I can say that Reids is in a class of its own. The Reids Experience is one that you should try at least once in your lifetime. But you...

This is a truly magnificent hotel and comes highly recommended. The room we had looked out over the ocean and gardens, a large deluxe room with balcony with ample clothes storage, separately partitioned toilet and bidet, twin wash hand basins, shower over the bath with a curtain, an off putter normally but it was spotless, as was the room and...

Stayed here only one night because it is so very expensive but I was here 23 and 18 years ago and wanted a new experience. Then I paid equivalent of 115 euro (now 295) and got a big upgrade (that room would now cost 475), now just the booked "charming room" but one in the main building (868) with small... More

We have visited Reid’s many times, and only come to Madeira to stay at Reid’s Palace. (Please read all of review if you have time!)

The hotel is located overlooking Funchal harbour which makes tea on terrace one of the most memorable experiences to be enjoyed at this first class hotel The formality of black tie for dinner may be daunting for some but adds elegance to every meal. The adjoining Villa Cipriani provides a less formal alternative for delicious Italian cuisine Rooms are not... More

We have just returned from our five day break at Reids Palace. We have been to this wonderful hotel on five occasions but it was our first visit for New Year.

Delighted to find that Reid's reputation for being old- fashioned is entirely justified. There is nothing that the present manager and his team do not know about cossetting their guests, down to the smallest detail. We enjoyed a wonderful stay, our first in this hotel, and will find it hard to stay anywhere else on Madeira in future.

From the moment that you walk through the front door of this historic hotel you realise that you have arrived somewhere special. Our room was beautifully appointed with lovely views of the harbour and ocean.

During our holiday in Madiera, we visited Reids Palace for afternoon tea following a recommendation. Unfortunately, the experience was disappointing. The staff never smiled once, and although there was a strict dress code, hotel clients were allowed to wander through the area in shorts and jeans. The food, it has to be said, was excellent. Maybe, we had been spoilt... More
