Quinta da Casa Branca
Ranked #3 of 88 Hotels in Funchal
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 30, 2013

Great hotel for relaxing does what it says on the box you won't be disappointed. Only issue we had was we were sold a dinner package for 5 days by Thomson's after initially booking just bed and breakfast. It was every bit as cheap to purchase on the day so don't book in advance.

We stayed here for a week in February. The weather was very mixed but Madeira was ideally suited for a winter break away from the usual touristy destination.

The hotel and every member of its staff were excellent. Their commitment to customer service could not be faulted. Rooms were spotlessly clean. The gardens were so beautiful even in February , indeed we preferred the hotel grounds to the Funchal Botanic gardens

The hotel is about a mile outside the city centre which is walkable but it is a steep hill. There are plenty of buses and taxis available. Also some good restaurants within walking distance.

We wanted a relaxing get away and this hotel was PERFECT! The grounds are beautiful and immaculate. Each room has a view and balcony or porch. Staff was very friendly and hotel was very clean. The only thing we did not really care for was the food in the separate restaurant. The breakfast included with the room was very good though.

We visited the hotel at the beginning of April to relax and recharge and the Quinta supplied this in buckets. The architecture and gardens are stunning, so calm and peaceful so you can't help but unwind when you are surrounded by such beauty. We loved the little walk through the gardens for breakfast, but unfortunately the weather wasn't too good during our stay so we only managed to sit outside twice. The food was really gorgeous and fresh with cooked to order eggs, pancakes and porridge as well as a great range on the buffet. The deck bar is a lovely place to relax early evening and enjoy the day's special cocktail during happy hour.
The staff are very impressive, professional and friendly, hitting just the right note in all their dealings with us and other customers.
The only thing I found disappointing was the temperature of the outdoor pool which, although displayed at 21c was icy cold.
The location is great - close enough to stroll into Funchal but far enough away to not be part of the larger complexes along the sea front. There is a great choice of restaurants within 5 minutes of the hotel if you wish or restaurants in Funchal old town provide some great choices.
I would certainly visit again and I've already recommended the Quinta to my friends!

This hotel has a touch of class, beautiful gardens and is in an ideal situation for a peaceful holiday. The bedrooms were not spacious. We were disappointed by the quality of the food in the restaurant. The staff are friendly and helpful and always did their best to make our stay comfortable. A good hotel but never a 5 star.

The Quinta da Casa Branca is a classically understated piece of luxury in the hustle and bustle of west Funchal. It has a most unusual room layout for a city hotel, the single storey garden rooms being in a row with direct access to the gardens, whilst the upgrade rooms are in two storeys at right angles to the garden rooms, the lower floor rooms having access to the gardens from a shuttered balcony.
The gardens, and they are vast, are very well tended and most of the trees and plants are labelled. The swimming pool is set in the midst of the gardens, and it has toilets and changing rooms.
The staff are truly a credit to the hotel. They are professional, but very warm hearted and friendly (as, we found, were most Madeirans).
The food served at breakfast was of a very high standard, they have an 'a la carte' menu to order from for bacon, eggs etc, cooked exactly how you require. The coffee is spot on, but if you like your tea, shall we say, muscular, then you have to ask for at least 2 tea bags in the pot!!
The hotel is situated a (sedate) 20 minute walk from Funchal centre and the harbour, most of it downhill. And it's a 5 minute taxi ride back! However, if you turn left out of the hotel and go down to the main road (Estrada Monumental) you will find lots of restaurants and 'pubs' where a meal for two can cost anything from €10 to €100. Take your pick.
A word about the rooms. The standard garden rooms don't have tea and coffee making facilities but they do have sunloungers, whereas the upgrade rooms do have tea and coffee facilities but no loungers. It all depends what's important to you! The garden rooms also get the sun from early morning up until about 5pm. The other rooms get the sun from about 11 until sunset.
All in all a lovely, peaceful hotel.

Room Tip: The garden rooms are probably the best all round option.

If you want to be in almost central Funchal and in a haven of peace surrounded by lush green tropical gardens then look no further. This hotel is it!
The rooms are as expected in a 4* /5* hotel and well located in the grounds. The facilities of restaurant, pool and poolside restaurant are fabulous.
The staff are attentive and courteous.
Why go back home....?
