My wife and I stayed at Reids in April 2011. The staff were extreemly kind, helpful and efficient. The room was first class as was the bathroom. Music and drinks in the cocktail bar were a real pleasure as was the restaurent. The swimming pools and outside service were also faultless and we enjoyed a thouroughly relaxing time in probably...

I have been to Madeira several times and have stayed mostly at Eden Mar, a great place to stay. This being our honeymoon we decided to try Reids this time, and we don't regret our choice. Yes, it's more expensive, but it's worth it! We enjoyed the service, everyone is so helpful and friendly, always a smile and even a... More

I have just returned from a seven day break at the Reids Palace Hotel in Madeira. We had travelled on the Orient Express for a silver wedding treat and as it is almost our Pearl Wedding we decided to treat ourselves to a holiday at this sister hotel. A wonderful warm welcome greeted us with those wonderful words 'your room... More

Delightful location, staff and experience. If you're going to Madeira then I can't imagine there's any place better than this hotel.

We have just returned from our first visit to Madeira. We have stayed in many OE hotels and none have been better than Reid's. The staff, room, gardens, food and indeed everything about the place was top notch. Many of the other guests were obviously repeat visitors and it is easy to see why it inspires such devotion. Impeccable.

Immaculate rooms, beautifully situated, constant care and maintenance over 120 years. A garden to die for. Staff who are able to tread the fine line between formality and friendliness The initial impression of a GREAT HOTEL can be somewhat intimidating but we found the staff to be helpful and approachable at all times This is clearly not a hotel that...

We took a five day break in Madeira - our first visit - and stayed at Reid's Hotel. It's an old-fashioned hotel in the best sense of the word, with an elegant ambience and superb service - nothing was too much trouble. We were surprised on our wedding anniversary to return to our room to find chilled sparking wine and... More

This hotel is old fashioned in the best possible way, which is appropriate for an establishment that''s been going for 120 years. You're expected to dress appropriately -- at dinner, it's jackets and ties for men. No mobile phones allowed in the restaurants even at breakfast. Heaven forbid that women even think about going topless at the pool, or anywhere... More

Specially the last two nights of 2010 were really amazing, with a fantastic party mood all over, with a lot of elegance.
