I have just arrived back from 5 nights at the Casa Velha do Palheiro. This was my first stay and I am already planning to book another, longer visit in May. As I was looking for a restful, beautiful and indulgent place to stay, this was just perfect. At 52, I was definitely on the young side, as the majority... More

Stylish smaller hotel, rooms high standard but really made by beautiful grounds, lovely communal areas and outstanding service and food. Golf course is in good condition and challenging, grounds and access to gardens all beautiful.

This hotel seems one of a kind in a city where most of the accommodation is either in the heavily built up centre of town or in the huge purpose built new resort style hotels on the eastern edge of the capital. Casa Velha is a haven of peace and tranquility and excudes style, with the atmosphere of a country... More

Dear Robert, Thanks for your review and it is great to know that you your holiday at Casa Velha with your child was as much as a success as your holidays without. Generally in Madeira the attitude towards young children is a wonderful one and so unlike the experience of many European cities! We hope to welcome you again soon... More

We visited this hotel and golf course in January for our 50th wedding anniversary. The hotel sent a taxi to the airport to pick us up, which was good. The room was very pleasant, well furnished with a nice big bed. We played golf most days. The course is interesting, not easy but a good challenge. The staff were very... More

It is very hard to fault this lovely small hotel set in attractive gardens, and surrounded by the golf course and botanical gardens. The bedrooms were attractive, if rather lacking a view. The restaurant and other public rooms were also lovely, and the staff were helpful and friendly. The courtesy bus was a good idea to get to the centre... More
