We have just returned from our 4th stay at this delightful hotel situated next to the wonderful Palheiro (Blandy's) Gardens in Madeira. The hotel's traditional high standards have been maintained with the restaurant food even better than ever! A fabulous new indoor pool and spa facilities now complement the outdoor pool providing everything one could wish for in a relaxing... More

Just the best place if you want to spoil yourselves, relax and enjoy some of the best food, service and grounds you could possibly imagine; just perfect. Golf course really excellent too - challenging but fair and really well maintained. Highly recommended, even if the weather isn't great, which unfortunatley it wasn't when we were there - the spa is... More

Home from home. The rooms are large enough to have our four year old and two year old in our room without any difficultiy. The service was outstanding and the hotel staff were warm and keen to help. The breakfast was enjoyed by all especially the local fresh fruit and pastries. The peaceful garden and pool was a perfect respite... More

Due to my line of work, I have traveled a great deal. Therefore i have seen a lot of hotel standards. And, speaking from my own experiences, i can honestly say that i was surprised (pleasantly, of course) by the elegance by which i was met. The staff treated me and my husband like royalty. Leaving us with no other... More

My wife and I spent a week at the Casa Velha and have to say it was one of the, if not the, best trips we’ve ever made (and that’s saying a lot). We were upon arrival greeted by the charming hotel staff who couldn’t wait to help us with our bags and show us around the estate. Also, wherever... More

We stayed here for a family wedding, and could not fault the service we received. The location is truly beautiful, the rooms pretty and comfortable, and the food superb - we were most impressed with the restaurant and staff. There were quite a lot of children in our party and after due consultation the staff pulled out all stops to... More

We just came back from our vacation with our daughters and would certainly recommend this hotel. The personnel is very kind and the meals are top notch. The setting of the hotel is particularly great as it is surrounded by impressive gardens. It is a great place to relax. Unfortunately the SPA was under construction when we were there: we... More

Whenever I visit Madiera on business I stay at the Casa Velha do Palheiro. The friendliness of the staff is always apparent and I'm treated as a friend rather than a client, I was even invited to a staff dinner during one visit. The accomodation is very comfortable with everything one needs close at hand. The standard of cuisene found... More
