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

Following a previous visit to the hotel for afternoon tea, we decided to treat ourselves to a dinner on our recent stay on the island. From the moment we arrived at reception to the moment we boarded a taxi home, we enjoyed a wonderful evening. The staff were attentive without being OTT; the food was exquisite (we had the signature... More

For our Ruby wedding anniversary my wife and I chose to visit Madeira which was the first time for the both of us and we weren’t disappointed. We also had the pleasure of booking at Reid’s Palace Hotel which is set in a cliff top location with breath-taking views overlooking Funchal Harbour. An ideal place to enjoy the scenery but... More

The food and service are excellent, when by the pool you can press a button from your lounger to get a waiter to come and take your order! However, the most amazing part of the hotel is the sea which can be accessed via a lift at the pool area. A pool has been built down at the sea front... More

We have been visiting Madeira for some years, and experiencing different hotels, but none compare, in our opinion, to Reid's Palace. In basic terms, a hotel can be somewhere you look to sleep at, and want nothing else from it, or it can be a place that makes your holiday special, and memorable. Any hotel is just a collection of...
