We stayed at the Inn and Art for 3 nights for £10 a night following a special promotion at hotelconnect.com.
We were given Room 1, which is a self catering mezzanine building set apart from the main complex. As far as we can tell it also house several generators for the hotel, which hummed gently 24 hours a day. As far as self catering went, it was equipped with a hot plate,a pan and a coffee machine.
The hotel itself is ideally situated on a cliff top side road within the quiet Canico do Baixo district. All staff were polite, friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The cliff top terrace is a fantastic place to eat or drink, and the food served is excellent. Unusually for Madeira the Inn & Art has an extensive vegetarian range.
Canico do Baixo itself is not as busy, and consequently not as well exuiped, as Funchal, and suits travelers looking for a quiet seashore retreat.More
