Staying in this hotel is similar to owning a grand old vintage motor car, it looks fantastic being in it is a pleasure you love it even though not everything works quite as it should but there is nowhere else you would rather be. We loved our stay here the staff were excellent especially at breakfast. We shall definitely return.

This is a very good, small and very friendly hotel. There is no doubt that it is the quality and customer-focus of the staff that elevate this hotel into the very good category. The hotel itself is very comfortable with good facilities. There is just something about the place that stops me from giving it 5 stars. It may be... More

The room was spotless, very clean, comfortable bed. The Hotel staff were very friendly & helpful. The location was good, just a short walk into town, (only downside I am nitpicking) uphill coming back, but not such a bad thing because I feel I have come home a little fitter from this exercise. I have to mention Rosie, who is... More

We stayed here for 11 nights from the 20th July to the 31st July. The hotel is located just outside the hustle and bustle of Funchal.

This was our first visit to Madeira but definately not the last, we were made to feel welcome by all the staff and the hotel was just wonderful. Just like a large house set in lovely gardens, but with all the facilities you would expect from a 5* hotel.
