From the various reviews it is so evident that many of us return here year after year. There must be a reason for this and this is not difficult to identify. First the location. Situated at the Lido, you are in the quiet part of town with a wonderful walk on your doorstep and yet a regular free coach to take you into town if you don't feel up to the walk. The gardens of the hotel have to be seen to be believed - this is no concrete carbuncle and these gardens in our view are on a par with the botanic gardens themselves. Next the staff - having stayed in many hotels we have never experienced such warmth and friendliness - without exception - and when you meet the senior management of the hotel it is not difficult to see why this is very much the house style. If you eat in the hotel you have a wide choice of restaurants from which to choose - from formal dining to casual dining around the swimming pool and in the evening a varied programme of entertainment. The lesirure facilities are equally attractive and provide all that the more energetic may require. Each December we return for our dose of Madeiran sunshine and each year we leave with tremendous reluctance.
