lovely mountain hotel

Posted Jul 9, 2015
Pros: Lovely building, comfortable rooms, great food and friendly, helpful staff
Cons: coffee making facilities in the room; staff on the bar (nice but seems to be an afterthought to the restaurant); availabilty of drinks at the pool
Location: Pretty setting in the mountain with wonderful views; transport to Funchal by bus, taxi or cable car apprx 15mins
Beautiful hotel in a picturesque setting in the mountain above Funchal, Monte is a small town but with pleasant local facilities and superb gardens. Great location for walkers.

Albergo vecchio e in posizione infelice per clima

Posted Jun 14, 2015
Pros: Il panorama
Cons: Deve essere rinnovata tutta la struttura ormai vecchia
Location: Posizione scomoda anche se buoni i servizi di bus locali. Simpatica la discesa sulle ceste
È un albergo classificato 5 stelle ma in realtà non lo è. In stanza c'è ancora il televisore con tubo catodico. La moquette è macchiata e consumata. Le piastrelle del pavimento del bagno sono rotte. La piscina coperta non è servita da bar come indicato nella descrizione del sito. I collegamenti per il centro con la navetta dell'hotel sono molto limitati. Un aspetto positivo è quello della cucina dell'hotel e la cordialità del personale. Insomma ciò che è descritto nel sito non corrisponde appieno alla realtà.

Plus ca change

Posted Apr 15, 2015
Pros: Location (nice and quiet), staff, and restaurant.
Cons: Wifi is only available in the bar area. They need flat screen TVs.
Location: Toboggan rides down the hill, if you are so inclined. Cable cars (expensive) - one to Funchal and one to the botanical gardens. Levada walk.
Have been visiting the hotel for over 10 years, and it's as good as ever. However, the chain has changed hands and all the staff are different from when I last visited about 18 months ago. Nevertheless they were as good as ever (only difference is there was no half bottle of madeira awaiting me in my room). However they did present me with a bottle of fizz in an ice bucket for my birthday which was a nice touch. The gardens suffered a fire and are being replanted, but it means you can now see more of the sea! They've also installed some new fountains and statues. I still love it there, and am always sorry to have to go home.

Quiet with views

Posted Feb 8, 2015
We have stayed before at a busier tourism period and would have rated this stay better if we hadn't been placed next to a fire exit which others guests and used regularly first thing in the morning to go down a noisy metal staircase. Communal areas were uncomfortably cold, possibly because the holiday seasonmwqs not under way yet but a customer is customer! Otherwise it was good value and in a nice spot. Easy to get into town by bus.

Lovely hotel with wonderful views

Posted Oct 29, 2014
Pros: Lovely setting with well appointed rooms. Very quiet and relaxing. Good choice for breakfast.
Cons: The upstairs carpets could be replaced as they are rather stained in places. Hotel restaurant a little on the expensive side.
Location: Monte is in a lovely setting. We found some local bar/restaurants that offered good value for evening meals. Good access into Funchal.
We really enjoyed our stay and it was very good value for money in the package from Expedia. Lovely room overlooking the gardens and down into Funchal. A hire car is a good idea to get around.

un havre de paix dans une atmosphère très cosy

Posted May 4, 2014
Pros: - piscine intérieure et jacuzzi - vue sur la mer - salons de style - taille de la chambre
Cons: - rénovation de la décoration des chambres - amélioration de l'étanchéité de la salle à manger et de la propreté des verrières
Location: - une bonne journée de visite sans véhicule : église Nossa Senhora, jardin botanique, "carros cestos" - téléphérique
Nous sommes restés une semaine à Quinta de Monte, dont nous avons apprécié les petits déjeuners, la piscine, les salons cosy et le joli jardin Un petit rafraichissement des chambres serait sans doute le bienvenu. Nous avons testé le restaurant le soir, mais le prix de 35 euros par personne sans les boissons nous a semblé un peu élevé. L'établissement est idéalement situé à deux pas de l'église Nossa Senhora, du départ des fameux "carros cestos", du jardin botanique et du téléphérique. Autant de raisons de s'installer. Toutefois, pour profiter pleinement de Madère et de Funchal, il vaut mieux disposer d'une voiture. L'hôtel est éloigné du centre, mais totalement silencieux et idéal pour le repos. Comparé aux structures bétonnées de la zone hôtelière, il est d'un charme bien supérieur.

Beautiful Hotel great location

Posted Apr 20, 2014
Pros: The hotel is in an excellent location at top off Monte gardens busy during day but when all day trippers go very peaceful . Great breakfast room
Cons: Hotel has all you could need except possibly tea and coffee making facilities ,fortunately brought my own mini kettle worth bringing your own
Location: This hotel is as mentioned a good way out 3km from Funchal so a car is needed avoid Brava car hire dangerous tyres very old hire cars
This hotel is a beautiful location for a hotel well away from the centre of Funchal .Fantastic views from rooms . We were very pleased with the choice of hotel as all you could need was available and hotel staff are very friendly .This location would benefit from a car beware where you get your car from avoid Brava cars as they use very old cars with bald tyres booked this hire car through Expedia so was surprised they used such companies. Overall this hotel is really beautiful hotel not like the large boring chain type hotels it is a unique hotel in a superb location

Hotel calme

Posted Apr 14, 2014
Pros: Sa tranquillité et son jardin. Proximité des téléphériques vers Funchal ou vers le jardin botanique.
Cons: - service portage valises en chambre - absence internet dans les chambres (actuellement wifi uniquement au bar) - fermeture du bar trop tôt (23h)
Restaurant décevant au niveau du choix et atmosphère "clinique". Hotel relativement éloigné et mal signalisé au départ de Funchal.
