As I said before the hotel is tired and dated but the staff are very friendly speak excellent English and want to help as much as they possibly can. You need to rely on a hire car or the buses to get about, but the buses are cheap and very reliable.

The stay was sold as a fasonable hotel, and with a "love package". On the arriving night we choosed the hotel "buffet". For 35 Euro i expected å real buffet. The choice was fish, pasta and kind of beef. Going out early the next morning, we choosed water, which was charged 4.50 for a bottle. They advertised with a shuttlebus... More

Me and my husband spent one week at this wonderful and charming hotel. We searched for an relaxing, quiet and charmful place to spend our holiday, and Quinta Do Monte had it all. The wiew from our hotelrum (316) was really stunning. The gardens was beautiful with its many flowers. Hibiskus, Hortensia, Balsamin and many more was well blended and... More

We spent a week at the hotel in July 2015 and had a quiet, relaxing holiday, which was exactly what we were looking for. A couple of things could be better. Wifi was only available in the lobby (or if we were very lucky, from the balcony outside our room). The carpets were a bit worn and should be replaced... More

After the cable car up from Funchal and a walk up to the church on the hill we stopped here for lunch. Had a decent salad and a 'delights of the sea' pitta, both very good and a beer each for €25. Sparkling water was the same price as the beer! You know the views must be good but unfortunately... More

We were made very welcome by the staff of this lovely and elegant hotel, which has wonderful views across Funchal. Beautifully furnished with antique furniture, with cosy sitting areas. The carpets in the corridors to the bedrooms were 'tired' and shabby, but the rooms themselves were pleasant and comfortable. A nice touch in the reception area were some old sedan... More

A couple of nights at this hotel at the end of a walking holiday. Positives include fantastic views over Funchal and easy access to the cable car. The hotel was clearly once very grand, but the world has moved on and Quinta do Monte has not. Dark, depressing decor with troubling stains on carpets in communal areas. The food in... More

This was the final hotel on our walking holiday and we were very pleased to find that our Superior room had been upgraded to a Suite! It had a huge bedroom and a comfortable sitting room with large flatscreen TV and fridge, glasses, tea/coffee/kettle and large bathroom with corner bath & separate shower. We were able to turn the heating... More

Thinking we would miss the tourist traps around the cable car area in Monte we fell into this 'cafe' in the gardens of Quinta do Monte Hotel. 20-30 tables served by one waiter who did his best and assisted by a 'chef' who prepared the delights in his wooden shack. Offerings quite minimal - white toasted break with a sliver... More

We stopped in this lovely Panoramic Gardens for lunch. Pumpkin soup (exquisite) and a special bolo da caco for my vegetarian husband with an omelette (very tasty too). The surroundings are great. Rhe little chapel with the baby angels is indeed worth a look. It is a high cost place but it makes you think of the old days... imagination
