I absolutely loved this hotel, the grounds at the Quinta da Casa Branca actually are Idyllic - unlike so many of the other hotels which use very clever shots to make their grounds look spacious. Staff are very friendly and helpful and do their job with a sense of humour. Breakfast was delicious, varied and plentiful - although staff do need to make sure there are still enough plates left!
The hotel rooms are slightly tired but overall very comfortable and spacious, some people we met extoled the virtues of the newer more expensive rooms, but I felt ours was more than adequate and given the weather we spent little time indoors, and our terrace area was sunny (as long as the sun came out).
We always felt that there was plenty of space in the hotel and rarely felt that we were hemmed in by other guests or staff. Biggest issue was the cost of coffee in the bar which at 4.5o euros for an Americano seemed a bit excessive.
If we ever went to Funchal again this is where we would stay, but we did feel that Funchal itself seemed to be pretty over developed, the intimacy and history we expected being a very long way from the "hotel zone".
