Had to visit this iconic hotel. In a beautiful spot with great views over the harbour, but a long uphill walk from either the town or the harbour. We enjoyed a coffee on the terrace but the 35 euros for afternoon tea defeated us. Good service and the public areas were well appointed.

A wonderful stay at Reids over the Christmas and New Year period. As always the Hotel and Staff offer an exceptional service from this wonderful establishment. We will be returning in the summer. Again many thanks to each and every staff member. Happy New Year.

From the moment you check in, you know that this hotel is a true 5 stars. Old fashioned style that adds to the experience. The decoration is splendid, the view is amazing and the staff is very attentive and extremely friendly. The food is pure delight and the breakfast is amongst the best i have even seen in a 5...

Reid's is an excellent hotel, serving the great and the good since 1891. A new wing was added later, creating a labyrinthine structure - you'll see lots of confused people wandering around, though that's more to do with the average age of the guests than the hotel layout. Services are delivered to a very high standard: room cleanliness, breakfast quality,...

Called in to Reid's on New Year's Day and the only option for lunch was the poolside bar. We made our way down through the hotel via a tortuous route to the bar. It proved to be a delightful spot next to the main pool. The starters were amazing, the range of seafood was amazing and it tasted as good...

Last time I visited Reid's was 27 years ago! We booked at the last minute for Christmas. The surrounding areas have certainly changed in 27 years but Reid's was just as sumptuous and elegant as I remembered it. We attended the Christmas day gala dinner which was excellent.

We had an amazing experience and felt quite priviledged to visit Reids and participate this wonderful buffet alongside the residents. Presentation of the food was outstanding and service very good. Sea food was par excellence! Choice amazing. It was a beautiful sunny day.

Everything about Reid's is top notch. The service is impeccable, matched by the magnificent setting. The pools are beautifully maintained and the swim before breakfast set me up for the day. There was a veritable feast of fruits, mango, papaya, passion fruit, melon ......, and that is before we even start on the eggs, bread cold meats. The gala champagne...

Back from a wonderful week at Reid's Palace. A genuine 5 star hotel in the old fashioned way. The reception was lovely, particularly as we had had a dreadful flight to get there (9 hours in an airbus!!!) definitely not Reid's fault but they were very understanding of two rather fractious guests. The layout of the hotel is a little...
