The place is an excellent 5 star stay in Madeira. The casa is beautiful with very interesting history, there is actually a museum downstairs. The garden, architecture and interior are done with very good taste respecting the history, you can't really separate the new buildings from the old ones at a glance. I especially enjoyed sitting outside in the garden... More

As you approach the hotel along the driveway lined with blue agapanthus, you feel you are entering a special place. Far below we could see Funchal, a cruise ship pulling into port: beside us, the picturesque and challenging Palheiro golf course spread out and down the hillside in a series of terraces bordered by lofty pine and cedar trees with...

I chose this hotel based on other reviews on Trip Advisor and found that it met or exceeded my expectations. I'm not a golfer; I chose the location because I was looking for a quiet spot to get some rest, but one that wasn’t too far from Funchal. In this respect the hotel is ideally placed, even though one has... More

I've just come back from my second visit to Casa Velha in three months. I enjoyed my five night stay in February so much that I booked a second stay the minute I got home. I cannot recommend Casa Velha highly enough. The service is wonderful (a great balance of formality and friendliness); the hotel and its surroundings are beautiful;... More

After a long trip to get here (high winds prevented us landing on Maderia) we were grateful to arrive and be met with such a warm welcome. We were shown the hotel and grounds and then our room which was lovely. A wlecoming bottle of water and wine were there to greet us as well. The food was wonderful. The... More

Lovely hotel set high above Funchal. Excellent friendly service from all the staff. We had a beautiful junior suite in the main part of the hotel which was spacious and comfortable. The adjacent gardens were wonderful to walk in and we also played golf which was very convenient as we could walk from the hotel to the 10th tee, or... More

From the minute you arrive you are treated to first class service. The staff could not have been more helpful, from arranging a late night dinner reservation to suggestions on where to get that perfect pair of shoes for a special night out. The room was well appointed, two double beds, massive bathroom, and very, very clean. The gardens are... More

This place is magnificent, peaceful,elegant, lovely. Despite being on an iland, one has to think of it in terms of being on an higher hill, to make sure to have the proper dressing for fresh nights like we had in april. The service is excellent.

Our stay end of October beginning November was a nice experience. The hotel is very british, including design, bathroom fixtures, furniture, etc. The food was excellent, of the highest standard, served in a very pleasant setting. Service friendly and prompt.
