Initially had a room in the old mansion, quaint but needs some updating. Upgraded to a room witha balcony and sea view . Reception were very obliging as we looked at two different rooms. The gardens are beautiful . Breakfast was lovely on the terrace, cannot comment on the evening menu as dined in the many restaurants in Funchal. Would... More

We booked as we had visited the hotel in October 2014 and, on the strength of what we were shown and saw decided it would make a change from staying in the town centre. We were given a garden room -in the old manor - and, whilst this was not totally unexpected the room was different to those in the... More

Traditional hotel, clean, excellent breakfast, central location within walking distance of the city centre. Nearby restaurants good for evening meals. Room was large and bed comfortable. Surroundings were very pretty.

We stayed at the Quinta Da Penha De Franca in one of the garden rooms. The room was very clean although the furnishings were slightly tatty for a 4 star hotel and we only had one working power socket. The gardens were beautiful and very well kept. The hotel had free WiFi in the lounge/bar and luckily this extended to... More

The Quinta da Penha de Franca and its sister hotel Penha de Franca Mar are TOTALLY different hotels. Watch it! We booked the former, which has the thumbnail photo as above on this trip advisor site and the correct address (Rua Imperatiz), BUT on arrival we were put into the other hotel, the Mar. Not that there is anything wrong... More

We spent a week's holiday in May 2015 with our first visit to Madeira, and this characterful hotel. We had a room on the top floor in the colonial style part of the hotel. It was clean, spacious and had a sea view. Breakfast was included, and the choice was good, although I found the coffee dispensed by the machine... More

My mother and I have just enjoyed ten days at this marvellous hotel. The Quinta is charming and characterful, the heated pool surrounded by lovely gardens. The staff work so hard and are very professional. Breakfast in the de mar is lovely, fresh fruit salad and so much choice. We also enjoyed all our lunches and the meals we took... More

Once again this hotel lived up to expectations . Really good position easy walk into town and I the mar bit of the hotel right on the sea front. This trip was however somewhat spoiled by the work being done on the quay belonging to the next door hotel. A large gargle crane and a digger spoiled the view and... More
