“Amazing setting, design classic, wonderful stay”
Reviewed February 7, 2012

Design fans; this is definitely one for you! The building is really well designed, detailed and finished; my husband's an architect and loved it...

Spent three days at QCB with our 18 month year old son and had a wonderful stay. It's a contemporary design classic; well planned around beautiful gardens, spacious, well appointed, spotlessly clean rooms - many wth a small terrace leading directly out onto the gardens. The bathrooms are modern; quite luxurious with tasteful marble finishes and modern fitiings including a brilliant large rain shower with a seperate hand held shower spray.

The staff were great; highly professional, friendly, considerate and attentive; lots of help and support was offered to us in terms of things we might need for our son - e.g. warming food, boiled water, etc.

We were in room 128, which leads directly onto the garden and is at the quieter end of the hotel. It was really nice to have a proper cot (not the fold up travel version) for our son, as well as a proper high chair at breakfast. Some of the rooms are at first floor level, with slidling screens to provide privacy and shade to the large balcony areas.

Breakfast was lovely, lots of continental options to choose from, asw ell as having a cooked menu to choose from; the omlettes are tops and do try the pancakes; 'cake' being the operative word here:)

We didn't have supper in the restaurant; it looked quite a nice, semi formal affair hence we didn't want to inflict our son on the other diners:) QCB is located towards the 'hotel zone' of Funchal, therefore close enough to the amenities/restaurants, etc to walk. This does involve an easy downhill on your way out and slightly more arduous uphill stroll on your return!

The downsides: very few really, but useful for information...
1. Perhaps not for everyone, as it there isn't a lift, but this didn't cause us any major issues with our lightweight travel buggy.
2. Also, there are no kettle/tea/coffee making facilities in the room, which we find helpful with a young child for making milk, sterilising items, etc. Whilst the hotel offered help with this aspect, it would have been useful to be able to boil water in the room (hence I always pack a travel kettle just in case!) .

Downsides notwithstandng, overall, we had a wonderful stay at QCB and would thoroughly recommend.

I liked the compound of QCB a lot - very nice, green, quiet. Also I liked the way how old house and new houses where combined. Modern house was minimalistic, shallow, integrated superbly to compound.
There were no standard rooms left, so we were upgraded on arrival We got the superior. Lucky us, because we booked with 40% discount. Superior was huge modern room, it has luxury bathroom, terrace with sunbeds and overview to gardern. It was our last day at Madeira after sightseeing aound, so it was lovely to enjoy sun at pool area.
Extremely good breakfast with pancakes, fresh juices, etc.

This was our 2nd visit to the QCB and we were not disappointed. Wonderful gardens, very friendly and efficient staff, good sized, comfortable room and bathroom (both spotlessly clean) - small patio area from the room with sun loungers facing the gardens. We did not visit the restaurant, but the breakfast was excellent. I really cannot find any faults at all. I left my watch in the room, which is very kindly being returned to me - thank you QCB.

We visited the QCB over the Xmas period to relax and rest. It is the perfect location for this. The hotel is L shaped, at the top of the gardens and fits in with its surroudings so that you somehow don't notice it.
The staff were an excellent mix of friendly (tipping us off about a local festival for example) and professionalism.
We had a superior room, and as mentioned by others, this meant no sun loungers on our balcony, but as the pool is never more that 2 minutes away, this was fine.
Finally, the location. After reading reviews we were concerned that walking would involve some mountaineering. It is not that bad - yes the QCB is on a hill, but that helps give some good views (from the bar for example). It is an easy 20 min walk into Funchal and only 5 from the main hotel drag on the islands - for restaurants, bars etc.

Highly recommended if you need to relax and get away.

Based on past TripAdvisor reviews we selected this small "country house" hotel for a week over Christmas.

Excellent service, great room (Superior) and lovely gardens.

Restaurant somewhat over-priced, service OK and food good. Dont pass it but try some of the local restaurants also.

For such a small hotel, spa and fitness area are good.

Staff are very attentive.

Room Tip: All rooms face the gardens. The standard rooms are in 100 and 200 range. 100's are in a single w...
