I very rarely give a hotel an 'excellent' rating but think that this is one of the very best hotel we have stayed in during th past 45 years or so. I don't want to repeat recent reviewers' praises (with which I agree) but would like to emphasise that I have rarely been in a place where the professionalism of...

I cannot fault this hotel. We had booked a double room but they upgraded us to a suite at no extra cost. The accommodation was spectacular with an amazing sea view. They provided a first class service and will definitely stay here again in our next trip.

We spent Christmas and new year here, for the two week festive period, and didn't want to leave. This place is old world charm. It isn't flashy or pushy. It is simply wonderful! A wonderful relaxing environment, super views and the highest possible standard of service, nothing is too much trouble. Laundry and housekeeping was spot on, I could not...

Compared to the prices of other Belmond properties, Reid's is at the lower end. This is a good thing as luxury is plentiful supply here. We were relaxed from the moment we arrived. The service is friendly and laid back while at the same time being super efficient, something that only the top places seem to manage. We have stayed...

Was all I hoped for, and more. Have visited Reid's on 3 occasions over past 30yrs, however this is the first time we have stayed, and it definitely did not disappoint, service & staff were first class and all delivered with a smile. Breakfast was plentyfull, hot & cold, lunch & drinks expensive, ( although is something you do expect...

Normally a choice of holiday destination is dictated by the place one wants to vist, with choice of hotel the secondary consideration. But in this instance it was the hotel, Reid's, that figured on our wishlist. Fortunately Madeira too is lovely! This is the grande dame of Funchal hotels. Approached for the first time from the road it looks unprepossessing...

Our visits to Madeira would not be complete without a return to this old, reliable favorite which always lives up to high expectations. Preceded by a walk in the gardens, lovely despite still being February, the staff are welcoming, friendly and solicitous ensuring that everything is just so albeit with no extravagant accompanying gestures. The selection of teas is bewildering...

This was our first visit to Madeira and we wanted to try Reids because of its reputation and tradition, all of which is truly warranted. The service is simply second to none and the interior of the hotel, including everything in our room, was provided to the highest standard. It sits on a magnificent location, overlooking the town and the...

This is a very luxurious hotel, with delicious food for every meal, sumptuous breakfast buffets, lunch by the pool and dinner chez Cipriani or Michelin William's restaurant. Also of course the famous tea time. Local restaurants outside also in walkable distance offering good range of local food too! Lovely room (608) overlooking the sea. Sadly poor weather prevented our enjoying...

Traditional but not old fashion. The Reid's is an Hotel full of life and charme. The Cocktail bar is just BEAUTIFUL with a superb view over the Funchal bay. Good service with exception of the concierge which is not "de luxe" Style.
