This hotel is a quality establishment in the heart of Funchal. It is small (40 rooms or so), kept to a very high standard and all staff provide exceptional and friendly customer service. The rooms are large, clean and air conditioned, the beds are comfortable, the breakfast varied and filling. All in all, the hotel provides an excellent base for a two week holiday. I could knit-pick and mention the limited and non changing menu in the restaurant but this should be countered with the quality of food which was good, and indeed, given the variety of restaurants available in Funchal, eating out should be the norm for any lengthy stay. Before going to Madeira we were concerned about the location of the hotel. A number of reviewers implied getting into the town centre was like abseiling off a cliff! Madeira is a hilly place, you can't go far without going up and down and whilst the hotel to town centre journey is a ten minute walk there and a 20 minute walk back, it's not an unpleasant experience and in fact is a much shorter walk than the majority of the town's hotels situated to the west of the of the town. However by far the best aspect of the hotel was the friendliness and enthusiasm of the staff that in turn rubbed off onto the guests. We have never experienced a hotel where everyone knows everyone else within a day or so of arriving. Many lasting friendships are made and I suspect the repeat visit percentage is to be envied.
