Stayed in Andrew Picken suite on the upper floor with separate sitting room and bedroom, spacious bathroom with walk-in shower and jacuzzi bathtub, quiet and relaxing. Lovely hotel set in the beautiful Palheiro gardens and golf course, providing enjoyable walks. Nice view from the clubhouse which offers lunch. Great service dining in the cosy hotel restaurant, though food choice not extensive. Indoor swimming pool and spa is nice.

We visited his lovely family hotel in the hills above Funchal and were met with familiar friendly staff to begin our week of golf and relaxation. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, most have been there for some time which speaks for itself. Luis the restaurant manager cannot be more helpful and is one of the reasons we return year after year. The restaurant serves high quality food with excellent choice of wines. The facilities, apart from the undulating testing golf course adorned with amazing flowers, are very good including a large outdoor pool a little cool at this time of the year but a heated indoor pool in the spa area and tennis and badminton courts. The hotel is set in colourful gardens but is also next to the Palheiro gardens which one can step into easily to appreciate the tropical floral colours and scents.

We had an excellent stay at Casa Velha Do Palheiro. The location was stunning, set in between the gardens and the golf course. Staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms spacious and clean, and the food excellent. We managed 4 games of golf in our week - recommend use of a buggy for the golf. Definitely recommend the hotel to our friends.

My wife and I stayed at the hotel for seven nights over Christmas. The accommodation is spacious and the bed was extremely comfortable, bathroom was also large and the decor very traditional. We were made very welcome by the staff who were all very friendly and helpful. Staying on a bed and breakfast basis the breakfasts were excellent with a choice of hot cooked or continental. Eggs can also be cooked to order if you require poached or scrambled. As we prefer to eat during the day and sample local restaurants we only had one evening meal at the hotel which was very good. The hotel also provides a shuttle service to and from Funchal which needs to be booked in advance. A shuttle also runs to the golf club - again advance booking is required. The hotel also organised some excursions and also a wine tasting all of which were complimentary to residents. The hotel grounds and gardens are lovely and all in all it was a very relaxing and enjoyable stay.
