Loved it!

The hotel is perfectly situated in the older part of Funchal where character abounds. We ate both in the hotel and at surrounding restaurants and found everyone very friendly and welcoming. The hotel itself is spotless, very comfortable and we were lucky to have a balcony with a sea view, from which we could watch the cruise ships docking. Every member of staff went out of their way to provide an exceptional service. I would definitely stay here again

The best thing about my stay was...

The location and service provided by all members of staff

WE HAD A LOVELY STAY HERE AT THE END OF AUGUST. WE UPGRADED TO A SEA VIEW ROOM ON ARRIVAL AND IT WAS WORTH IT, WE HAD A LOVELY ROOM WITH BALCONY AND A BEAUTIFUL VIEW. BEWARE OF SIDE VIEW ROOMS AS THEY LOOK ONTO A GREEN AREA AND ITS NOT GREAT. THE SMALL KITCHENETTE IN THE ROOM IS GOOD, WE DIDNT COOK BUT FOUND THE KETTLE AND FRIDGE VERY USEFUL. WE WERE ON A B&B BASIS BUT ATE IN THE HOTEL A FEW TIMES AND IT WAS GOOD, ALTHOUGH THE SECOND SITTING ON BARBEQUE NIGHT MEANT THE FOOD WAS NOT VERY HOT. THE RESTAURANTS OUTSIDE THE HOTEL ARE OK BUT YOU GET PESTERED BY THE STAFF AND IT CAN GET VERY ANNOYING. THE SERVICE IN THE HOTEL WAS EXCELLENT, RECEPTION STAFF VERY POLITE AND HELPFUL. BAR STAFF WERE WONDERFUL. ON OUR LAST DAY WE HAD A LATE FLIGHT AND ALTHOUGH WE WEREN'T ABLE TO KEEP OUR ROOM WE WERE ABLE TO USE THE SPA FACILITIES TO SHOWER WHICH WAS ABSOLUTELY FINE. THE HOTEL IS WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE OF THE CENTRE AND THE BUS STATION AND CABLE CAR ARE JUST OUTSIDE THE HOTEL. WE ENJOYED OUR STAY HERE AND WOULD RECOMMEND IT. WE ARE A COUPLE IN OUR MID FIFTIES,

The best thing about my stay was...

SITTING OUTSIDE IN THE EVENING WITH A GLASS OF SPARKLING WINE LOOKING OUT AT THE SEA!

WINTER SUN BREAK

Excellent location with lots of very good restaurants on the doorstep, friendly service, stunning views of ocean and cruise liners in harbour. Great for local attractions and suitably poised for tours if required. Highly recommend for that relaxing break. Would not recommend for children.
