Just had a wonderful week at the Madeira Bright Star as part of our 30th Wedding Anniversary. Perfectly situated / located equidistant from Funchal City Centre and the Lido area with the many grand hotels and coastal walks. Others had commented on the steep slope back to the hotel after a 15 minute walk back from Funchal but it is... More

We spent a week in this very affordable, modern hotel in what seemed to be Madeira's rainy season. Out of 1 week we only had one sunny day, but that's another story! The hotel was' bright' airy and comfortable. Spotless, aircon, room with balcony overlooking pool area and carpark of nearby hotel. Sea view if you look hard left! good... More

Excellent position a few minutes walk from the port end of funchal promenade and only a 15 minute stroll into the centre of Funchal for shops, restaurants and marina. Hotel was very clean, modern and informal. Room was spacious with a large balcony with partial sea view facing due west, so all balconies are in full sun afternoon and evening.... More

After reading the reviews we were a little apprehensive, despite most of the reviews being two years old. The rooms were clean, linen and towels are changed daily although the bed is a little hard and the pillows a little lumpy! The breakfast served was of an adequate standard, I have definitely eaten a lot worse. There was a choice... More

This small hotel is perfect location for the port and probably the closest on foot. Perfect for the ferry to Porto Santo. I stay here because it is great value, the rooms are big with great balconies of approx 12ft. It is a good simple well run hotel. It has a small pool and small garden but hardly anyone uses... More
