We stayed here in February, not the warmest or driest of months, so we were disappointed that hotel didn't think it necessary to put on heating or hot water in rooms when there were only few guests. The bedrooms are fine with firm mattresses. Luckily a heater is supplied in the room. We like a couple of pillows and these... More

As it was lunch we opted for the steak sandwich and wine . Both were excellent and extremely reasonably . the bill for two large... More

My wife and I enjoyed a great week here. With a hired car, a great variety of superb walks can be made, even with the E110 closed at Encumeada pass. Food was delicious and in very generous portions. My wife doesn't eat meat, but had no problems with several fish or egg dishes to choose from. Staff were very helpful... More

I attended a wedding anniversary function at this hotel. The food was very good and the staff were very efficient. I cannot comment on the rooms and the rest of the hotel, as I did not stay in the hotel.

Fantastic location, the staff are very helpful and patient. Was here for a wedding reception and it was all fantastic. The rooms are a good size and the views from the balcony were simply amazing. The beds were very comfortable and clean. The hotel is located in the mountains and so wildlife is to be expected but given the wonderful... More

The Hotel Encumeada is definitely the best place to stay if you are keen on Madeira walks. This was my second visit to this hotel and not much has changed since September last year. The staff are very helpfull, the food and drink are inexpensive and quite good, and the mountain views are breathtaking. The general decor of the hotel... More

Lovely setting, amazing view, not expecting too much from the restaurant or hotel. Very clean and comfortable but does need some attention soon. However, what was a big surprise was the fabulous wine selection available. The wine is displayed on shelf and rack system in the corner of the large restaurant. The range and quality was amazing. The staff are... More

I went with an open mind, having read the very mixed reviews, and can honestly say i was impressed all round. My room, the restaurant (amazing breakfast!) helpful staff...but above all the location, such great views and so near to several waymarked paths.

Back after a 4 years absence for a third visit because the Estalagem Encumeada is what I want for a quiet, relaxing holiday ... high in the fresh, mountain air of Madeira. No great changes with the Inn noted - the positive features being a basic but comfortable, spotlessly clean, affordable room with daily domestic service. My mountain view room... More

I spent a week here on holiday and i found it comfortable and perfect for our needs, despite the room being basic. The views of the mountains and trees from the balcony was stupendous and the hotel is surrounded by totally breathtaking scenery. It is perfectly located for nature, walks and birdwatching. A car is a must as it is... More
