Sadly, we were not staying at the hotel but decided to go for a drink on the terrace. We were fortunate to have a table overlooking the sea and the bay.. We had a drink and then decided to have a light meal. We had a dish of Mushroom Pasta followed by a Passion Fruit desert. I can honestly say that the food was some of the best that I have ever tasted in our numerous worldwide travels, including Italy. The food was superb and my compliments to the chef who created the dishes. Not only did they tasted wonderful but the presentation was amazing.. The service was very good as well. Afterwards we wandered around the public area and admired the elegant surroundings. A truly wonderful hotel in a good location with views over the bay of Funchal.. If we ever visit Funchal again, we will certainly try and stay here.

This was our honeymoon to Madeira. We had previously stayed at the Cipriani in Venice so were really looking forward to another Belmond Hotel. This could not have been further from our previous experience. The room quality was very poor until we were eventually upgraded. Staff were rude and service was unbelievably slow. Food and drink quality was poor and very over-priced compared to other hotels and restaurants in the area. We could not even book into the hotel restaurant for 4 days after our arrival. Booking experiences was very difficult due to the concierge. However, the sunrise above the clouds was amazing once we were able to get onto it! On departure we had no assistance with luggage, which reception actually thought was funny!! As a couple in our twenties we felt very disappointed, we were always served after any older guests no matter the arrival time to a bar or restaurant and there was no mention of our honeymoon despite alerting the hotel before arrival. Overall disappointing, not Belmond quality and certainly not 5 star.

Reid's Palace remains our favourite holiday destination with a feel of a "family business" but the most friendly and efficiently run hotel we have ever stayed in. Nothing is too much trouble and the friendliness of the staff is also seen throughout the island.

The room was dated and trying to get a constant temperature in the shower wasn’t possible. Staff were amazing considering there were lots of new staff coming back from covid and isn’t stuffy at all (except for some guests). Highly recommend the hotel and the covid check out.

Four of us had the pleasure of experiencing the famous Reid’s Palace afternoon tea last week whilst holidaying in Madeira. A truly memorable afternoon. The terrace where the afternoon tea is served was beautiful, offering the most wonderful views of Funchal with crystal clear waters and perfect blue skies. All the staff were extremely friendly and professional. The tea itself was delicious. 24 blends of tea on offer or coffee for those who prefer. Delicious selection of finger sandwiches, warm scones ( never , ever tasted scones so good!) jam and cream and assorted little cakes. We were asked if we wanted more of anything and couldn’t resist having more of the amazing scones. We all drank second pots of tea and coffee. Beautiful table linen and a Royal Doulton tea service all added to the perfect experience. At a cost of €36per person we feel it offered exceptional value for money as you really could have had as much as you wanted to eat and drink. The hotel has such a history, Winston Churchill and George Bernard Shaw being amongst those who previously stayed there. Lots of pictures around the hotel of famous guests add to the ambience. So glad we decided to book afternoon tea, would absolutely love to stay there sometime in the future even if for just one night. Putting that on our bucket list! Thank you Reid’s Palace.
