We liked the hotel, most staff were nice and friendly, room service was odd though and we struggled with the staff, each day the room was made up at a different time, example15:00, 10:00, 17:00, 13:00, we played golf on consecutive days and twice on our return after a shower we just wanted to relax in the room but were...

The hotel was beautifully situated amongst well kept gardens with surrounding golf course over looking Funchal. The room was of good size and well equipped, the restaurant was relaxed with good food and excellent service. Had the management been able to manage the weather as well as they managed the hotel, it would have been a perfect holiday. Still very... More

We have been to this hotel 5 years in a row and have had lovely stays again and again. The staff is very friendly, helps out and solves any problem if it occurs. The hotel is an old country house and has a lovely atmosphere. The bathroom looks slightly older but functions properly and is very clean. The food is... More

This former hunting lodge has been converted into a stylish and comfortable hotel set between a challenging 18 holes golf course and a botanical garden. Very attentive staff, great cuisine. We'll be back for more.

The hotel offers fine rooms but no air conditioning. Fantastic grounds sited next to excellent gardens and a challenging golf course. The service is second to none plus the restaurant is first class. Spa is reasonable and complimented by indoor and outdoor pools. Note a quiete and peaceful hotel, not for party goers! If you're driving the road up is... More

Going to the Casa Velha do Palheiro is a step back in time to when hotels were something special' The staff were lovely, the rooms were excellent, the food splendid and the standard of service was great. If you play golf its right on the golf course which also has a lovely clubhouse serving excellent food and with the most... More

We spent a great week at Casa Velha. The hotel was very welcoming and comfortable, food was excellent and the setting in the Palheiro Estate was beautiful. The Palheiro Gardens are very special and we spent many hours looking at the interesting trees and shrubs.
