Holbeach, United Kingdom5 contributions
We arrived as one of the first guests after lock down and immediately were surprised by kindness and professionalism of reception staff. Every question was asked and answered, fantastic recommendations as where to eat what to see and an everyday chat about everything and anything. Great staff in the restaurant where food was served, also very kind and helpful. Continental breakfast good, rooms spacious with good quality furniture and nice bath. Lovely pool area and good location. We were absolutely thrilled by the hotel and predominantly by its staff. Stay safe and thanks again.

It was our first trip to Madeira, without any research we randomly chose the Golden Residence, jackpot! After a small initial problem which was quickly resolved, we settled into our large, immaculate, well-appointed room overlooking the pool. The hotel was spotlessly clean throughout, significant COVID measures were in place but these did not impede upon our stay negatively. Staff, genuinely friendly and very proffessional. The Lido (which sits directly beneath the hotel) was our favourite place to swim and relax, still warm in mid September. We felt quite smug walking past countless enormous ugly concrete hotels everyday on our way back to the relatively intimate, but ultimately private surroundings of the Golden Residence. Positioned on a small headland, the hotel feels delightfully far away but it's close enough to everything. A quick (post stay) check online reinforced that the Golden Residence represents extremely good value for money. In our opinion this hotel deserves all the praise heaped upon it and more. Many thanks to the Golden Residence from the man with the broken safe (insert smiley emoji).

We chose well with this hotel! Amazing location with stunning cliff top views from pool and gardens and our balcony. Spotlessly clean and modern everywhere, staff charming and friendly, great local-feel places to eat nearby - we loved Loft - and airport bus stops right outside hotel. A perfect stay, thank you. It’s 100 per cent where we will stay on our next visit - Madeira hiking is wonderful so we will be back!

Golden Residence hotel was perfect choice for our stay in Madeira. It is perfect point for trips around, reaching levadas, or just to go sunbathing (near to beaches) and with bus stop next to hotel also perfect location to get to the Funchal - main city. The shopping mall is also close - max 10 minutes by walk. You can buy there fresh local fruit, that tastes great,or some other local but also wolrdwide known products. The room was comfortable, clean with side sea view, food was excellent and broad choice for breakfasts and swimming pool clean and not crowded with a perfect seaview. Madeira is really unordinary island with such a diverse and nice nature... Really recommended to visit by us.
