Stayed in this hotel last month for 3 nights and it wasn't a good stay. This hotel claims to be 4 stars but I would give it 2 on a good day! The only good thing about this property is it's location, very centralised. The walls are so thin you can hear your neighbour like he was standing next to... More

It's worth stepping back to take a good look at the outside of Hotel Windsor. The Art Deco design facade is quite stark and unusual in the cramped narrow street surroundings of Central Funchal. Move on in to the reception area which we felt was a little dingy and lacking in natural light compared to the rest of the Hotel.... More

I visited Funchal as an alternative to a City Break/Christmas Markets type break and picked this hotel due to its central location in the old town. I agree with previous comments that this is probably not a 4* hotel, but then again I didn’t pay 4* prices. I was also aware of the comments regarding the breakfast so this came... More

its supposed to be 4 stars but we would only rate it a 2/3 stars, the room was very basic, a lack of power points should you want to recharge anything. very noisy no double glazing to help muffle noise, you could not leave a window open. beds very creaky mattress too hard. breakfast choice very limited, tea was horrid,...

This was our third trip to Madeira but the first time we have actually stayed in Funchal. The town itself is large and very hilly so if you have walking difficulties as I do, it is important to pick your hotel carefully. The Windsor Hotel is ideal in many respects as it is central, close to shops and restaurants, near... More

I write to say that we have enjoyed our stay at windsor hotel. Very nicely decorated hotel, room quite big very clean, with window that opens to the car park and little garden. Nice and spacious bathroom with everything one needs. Breakfast was ok, no hot food included but for the price we paid couldn't ask for more really. Everyone... More

I have written a couple of supportive reviews for this hotel and this is an update following a visit in September 2013. It is a city centre hotel and of course there will be some noise. During the warmer times of the year including September the lack of air conditioning can be a problem although in the winter months the... More

What more do you require than a basic but stylish hotel that is very clean that is also in an excellent location. Yes you can moan about the breakfast but you are paying a low price and only have to go across the road for more variety. Enjoyed it would go again

The staff are very friendly and helpful, Thanks to the lady @ reception for all your help, wouldn't really call it a four star but had a nice sleep. The breakfast is basic but healthy. Good location close to bus stops etc. Also you must visit the Gellato shop around the corner open till 12 midnight. Madeira is well worth... More
