My husband and I have just returned from a fantastic week at this beautiful hotel. From the moment we arrived the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful and we could not fault anything about the accommodation or service. Rooms were generously sized and traditionally decorated but with all mod cons including air con, flatscreen tvs and dvd player and refridgerator. Balconies overlooked the beautiful gardens and upper floors had views over Funchal - some towards the mountains and others towards the sea. We opted for B&B which enabled us to sample a variety of restaurants in the town - several following recommendations given by the hotel's extremely helpful concierge Rosie Borges. None of these disappointed. The breakfast buffet was plentiful and varied - continental style but eggs and 'traditional english' options cooked to order. The sparkling wine on offer with breakfast every day was a special treat - as was the 'cocktail of the day' which we looked forward to sampling after a hard day's walking the levadas. The location of the hotel is perfect - within 10 minutes walk of the town centre but away from the hustle and bustle of the chain hotels on the coast in the lido area. Although it is a challenging walk back uphill to the hotel, the peace and quiet and relaxing ambience when you get there is well worth the effort. We would highly recommend this hotel and wouldn't hesitate to return again.
