Everything about this hotel is a pleasure--its location overlooking the harbour, the views of the ocean, the well-stocked bar, the wood-panelled public rooms, the large pictures of British ships, the mementos of the Churchills and other famous guests, the comfortable bedrooms and, best of all, the thoughtfulness of the staff. On the day of our departure the concierge rang me... More

I wasn't really sure what to expect from this traditional hotel but I can only describe our stay as fabulous! This was our first stay in a Belmond property and I was very impressed. The staff, food and setting were outstanding. Although our stay was only short we didn't get chance to see much of the island, we were just... More

My friend booked high tea at Reids as a surprise before we went to Madeira in June (16.) what an experience it was. Fabulous surroundings, rather reminiscent of the old colonial ambience of Raffles in Singapore. We were shown to a beautiful terrace overlooking beautiful gardens and the ocean and were given the choice of seats. As well as a... More

It took us a couple of days to adjust to the hotel as it's a wee bit "old fashioned". The furnishings are not modern and the rooms are small but the service and grounds are exceptional. The hotel seems vast and we were constantly getting lost but I think that's part of the fun. As a North American I found... More

We visited this wonderful hotel and stayed for lunch. Buffet style with an amazing choice on offer - served cold but you could chose from a different menu of hot dishes. Although the price of the lunch seemed expensive, you could take as many trips as you like to the buffet table to choose and amazing array of dishes. Lunch... More

Reid's is just simply the best hotel we've ever stayed in. Everything was perfect - the location, our room, the views, the food and most of all the service. All the staff, of whom there are many, were charming and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. What a lovely 10 days!!

There are some hotels which are truly exceptional. Reid's Palace is one of them. Staff are friendly, professional and really care about their guests. Our room was delightful, the view magical and had everything you could need - including free soft drinks in the minibar (how amazing is that!). We had a birthday each during our stay, and had wine...

This is our 14th visit in nearly 20 years and it is still never fails to captivate us. Of course there have been some changes over the years but Reids still has style and elegance which we have not found elsewhere. We have already booked for next year. It is pricey, yes, but what value for money!

The hotel is splendid, over 120 years old and has an interesting previous guest list, including Winston Churchill. Very welcoming, wonderful food and service. We have opted for half board, good choice. Breakfast buffet style with fresh cooked 'egg menu'. Choice of 2 main evening restaurants, formal William Restaurant and relaxed but lovely Cipriani, Italian. Happy to say that the... More
