I have been travelling across Europe a lot, and I can tell that Windsor hotel is not a 4* but more a 3*.
It's close to the Old Funchal, Funchal Centre, Harbour, Restaurants, Shops, Shopping Centres, Market, Gardens, Churches, Cathedral....
Pool with really cold water (5-10C),
Pillows are awful,
smell of damp in bathroom,
Some bedroom views might be better, mine was on 3rd floor above front door on a half destroyed building.
Breakfast was quite poor.
Fruit salad, brioche, biscotte and croissants (when available) were the best,
The ham and cheese quite bad,
Coffee was ok, Tea really weak, Orange juice really watery,
I would recommend the "Opan" shop 50 yards before Windsor hotel where you can have a good breakfast.
Internet is not free, like many hotels, however half of Madeira is free with "Madeira WiFi"
or "default" 50 yards before Windsor hotel and just after the church on the left, next to a pizzaria.
Food in Madeira is cheap. We had dinner in different restaurants every night.
You get what you paid for, howerver, be prepared to eat elsewhere.
