Once again we have had a super holiday at Bright Star, since our last visit the hotel has had a bit of a makeover, thankfully the staff haven't, they're still the same great bunch we met previously. I cannot understand why some guests reported the hotel was noisy, it's one of the quietest places we've stayed in! Rooms are spotless,... More

We stayed a week in this hotel over the time of the flower festival and the location was brilliant as it was fairly near the town centre and yet in a quiet location. Surprised to see a review saying the area was noisy as it seemed very quiet and the rooms all overlook the pool area not the road outside.... More

Was very impressed with the modern hotel at such attractive prices. Have no complaints on the hotel itself. Rooms were good size, with balcony (but not the gretaest view as they look out across a carpark) The staff were super helpful. Problem is that it is a noisy area with traffic and the sound-proofing of the hotel is very poor.... More

Unexpectedly in Funchal for New year's Eve and needed a hotel. Modern, clean and generously proportioned rooms, comfy bed, included fridge. Good WiFi, and proper sized TV. Hotel very kindly gave a bottle of cava for the evening's celebrations too, which was a nice touch. Breakfast had good range of choice., Outside pool looked nice and all rooms appeared to... More

We've just returned from a week's holiday at Madeira Bright Star and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is in a quiet location and only 10 minutes walk from Funchal town centre (it's quicker to go the back way along the side of a very lovely park). There is a Spar shop just a few minutes walk from the hotel... More

We stayed for one night at the end of our holiday after our week at the Royal Savoy, the Bright Star is just down the road, ( we do this as we do not want to fly on a Monday, the airport is manic on Mondays!). We stayed here when the hotel had just opened a couple of years ago... More

We enjoyed our stay at Madeira Bright Star. The room was clean and spacious. Breakfast was adequate,and plentiful .And the staff were very polite and helpful.I would not call this a four star hotel,but it is away from hustle and bustle of town ,and very close to several good resteaurants.

We checked in to the Bright Star on Oct. 10, 2013 and stayed 3 nights. Our room had some serious problems. The ceiling in the bathroom had leaked, and they cut a piece of the sheetrock out then replaced it again with strips of tape, which were coming unstuck. The toilet leaked from the base of the toilet, probably needed... More

So glad we found this hotel, ideally placed for walking into town and even more convenient for walking back! The rooms are large and spotlessly clean, there's a fridge ( useful for storing the incredibly cheap and excellent wine we found), television with B.B.C. entertainment station and several other English speaking channels inc. films. Bedrooms are air conditioned which is... More
