Excellent hotel with excellent staff

Posted Jun 18, 2015
Pros: Staff were absolutely excellent to a man (or woman !)
Cons: Nothing I can really think of
Location: About a fifteen walk to the town which could be fairly strenuous if you were not fit !
An excellent hotel with a attention to detail not often found nowadays Even the General Manager meets with you to personally ask whether you have enjoyed your holiday Staff superb

hotel accueillant et bien situé dans Funchal

Posted Jun 18, 2015
Pros: le calme et le petit déjeuner exceptionnel
Cons: RAS
Le seul problème rencontré quand nous sommes arrivés ,ça été de le trouver,sur tous les plans entre nos mains aucun ne figurait le nom de la rue de l'hotel. Je pense qu'il serait plus judicieux de mettre le numéro 76 de la rue du grand boulevard qui lui est représenté sur les plans. C'est le seul petit souci(qui nous a pris quand même deux heures)

First Madeira Visit

Posted May 31, 2015
Pros: Lovely building, like a country house and decorated in Madeiran style. Room was spacious and very clean. Staff in the bar were excellent.
Cons: Don;t eat dinner here. We had a very poor experience and there are much better experiences in Funchal.
Location: Plenty eateries for snacks, coffee and dinner. Lovely walks along the sea front. Old town lovely to walk throughand shop in. Cable car trip is good.
What a beautiful island. Very lush, with gorgeous plants and coastline. Very well kept and Funchal is great, especially in the Harbour and oldtown areas.

Madeira

Posted May 29, 2015
Pros: Location, staff, cleanliness, comfort, personal service, shuttle bus from Marina
Cons: Our showerhead was a bit loose and the hairdryer diffuser was the wrong one for the hairdryer
Location: 15 minute walk to Marina. Lots of bars and restaurants close by. Some restaurants had courtesy shuttle buses.
Hotel was a 15 minute walk from Marina so well positioned. Not a huge hotel which gave a more personalised feel. Very clean and well appointed with fantastically helpful and cheery staff. We would definitely stay here again if we are going back to Madeira.

Een goed hotel met een prachtige tuin.

Posted May 28, 2015
Pros: De kamer, het uitzicht op de tuin, het voortreffelijke ontbijtbuffet.
Location: De ligging van het hotel was niet optimaal. Ongeveer 20 minuten lopen van de stad via een niet zo'n prettige weg.
Naast de prachtige kamer en de mooie tuin, was het personeel bijzonder vriendelijk en behulpzaam.

Great hotel, close to all amenities

Posted May 6, 2015
Pros: The size of the room - felt more like an apartment. It was also close to all amenities - 10 minute walk into Funchal
Cons: I can't think of much as we loved the hotel - the hotel laptop didn't seem to work very well.
Location: The hotel is a 10 minute walk into Funchal and other amenities - there was a hotel shuttle into Funchal centre as its quite hilly.
We had a huge room overlooking the gardens, quiet, private, clean, close to Funchal centre.

An oasis of peace and quiet

Posted May 5, 2015
Pros: Bright, airy, clean.
Cons: 'Madeira night' was not a success. Give that one a miss.
Location: Well situated. 20 mins walk to town although uphill on way back. If you don't want to walk reception will call you a taxi. Superb restaurants dowtown.
First time we have stayed in a hotel as small as this one. It's intimate, warm and friendly. The staff are superb. Nothing is too much trouble. Would recommend it to anyone. We will stay here again without question.

All round excellent small luxury hotel

Posted May 2, 2015
Pros: Little to fault - staff very helpful - pool is nice - restaurant excellent - we dined there three times - Liked Gardens and grounds
Cons: Nothing really. But see comment about the location
Location: Walking distance to central Funchal. But from the Old Town it's at least 25 mins walk and the less active may prefer to use the hotel's shuttle bus.
Marketed as 5* and in terms of facilities, quality and service it fully lives up to that standard. But just a little notch down from international premium 5* like 4 Seasons or Ritz Carlton. But that's not necessarily a bad thing as it made for a more easy going feel. We found little to fault. Style is traditional classic boutique hotel rather than "modern designer". From our experience clientele seems fairly mixed but with some bias to English seniors (but that's probably typical of Madeira). We liked the location which is walking distance from central Funchal and much closer than many of the big modern 5* hotels. But for anyone who is not fit a walk to the far end of the old town may be too much. Even for us we did not fancy walking there and back to try some of the good local restaurants in the evening. But that said you don't have to dine out as the Hotel Restaurant is really excellent. Also the walk into the old town starts by crossing a busy road and then through some slightly down at heel streets. You wont feel threatened but on the other hand don't expect a 100% picturesque walk to town. Once you get to the historic part of the city the walk is rewarded. All aspects of service were excellent and that started even before we arrived when they offered to arrange our transfer from the airport. Bar had a good deal more atmosphere than some hotel bars and it was nice to sit there before and after a meal.
