Stayed here after a few days in Funchal and it was a great place to hit the northern towns as well as the mountain levadas. Both breakfasts and dinners were pretty good and the mountain views from our room were spectacular. The staff was very accommodating and I almost stole the little kitten. I did name him/her maracujá. If they... More

We found this restaurant by total accident but we were so glad we did. We pulled over for a coffee mid afternoon and the views were so intoxicating that we stayed for our evening meal. The food was lovely and although the gentleman that served us was rather brusque he did have a sense of humour. We thoroughly enjoyed the... More

For E50 a night we had a nice room with a stunning view - extremely comfortable and charming without overplaying the 'quaint cottage' thing like I feared from some of the photos. The bathroom was fairly spartan compared to the bedroom but was clean and large. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful (we generally found Madeira to be quite... More

staff very pleasant but they knew nothing about walks in the area, no trail maps, nothing. Rooms in the annex very warm and comfortable with superb view down the valley but not at all sound proof.Good location for walks in the mountains.

Together with my wife I tried to walk from place to place with all our stuff on the back. Coming downhill from the Encumeada pass after a hard mountaintrek, hitchhiking with some nice people - we found this hotel very cosy, but had expected more backpackers. We enjoyed our room with fantastic mountain views in the timberhouse and had a... More

Stayed 7 nights at the homely hotel in the mountains. It's quite high up and only accessible by car, nowhere to eat except the hotel but the food is quite decent. Fireplace was roaring some of the colder nights so that was pretty neat. Staff are friendly and helpful (Jacinto was our favourite - he made sure we got eggs... More

We had a comfortable, clean room with an en suite shower room in the main hotel building, and chose half board (with a packed-lunch daily) opting for the "local food" menu in the evening which was fabulous, and a real credit to the two chefs. The service was friendly and very helpful and we would definitely go back.

Excellent location: 700m up hillside but looking southwest down the valley to the sea - the ridge above often breaks the stormclouds spilling over the mountains. Great mountain walks start at the col high above the hotel. After a day's walking, what better than to come back for a glass of wine (only E1.50) on the sunny terrace here? It's... More

We had requested a room in the log cabin when booking the previous February but were given one in the main hotel. Breakfasts were good, dinners average, the staff lukewarm. Comfortable beds but room was basic and there were various health and safety issues!
