I was somewhat disappointed with this hotel. I had booked a Garden View room through British Airways holidays. My outbound flight was delayed and I arrived a little later than anticipated. When taken to my room, I was horrified to find it being reminiscent of a prison cell. It was situated at ground floor level at the end of a... More

This hotel is older than some of its neighbours and our stay was all the richer for it. The character and charm of the hotel made this a memorable and very pleasant stay. It felt like an entirely appropriate p[place to stay in this very historic town. Our room was well appointed and comfortable and the balcony had a view... More

Stayed here in the older section of the hotel after 4 days in Porto Moniz, room excellent and close to restaurant and bars. No noise from other guests. Hotel is within short walk of most attractions but there are some quite steep sections and a few steps to negotiate in the centre. All staff were polite and spoke good English.... More

We experience a feeling of relaxation & peace when we return to the Q.P Franca. It is as if you step back slightly in time with no interference from 'piped' music & non- stop communication overload. The hotel complex was as usual quiet & peaceful. The gardens tho approaching winter growth, well tended & pleasant to wander thro. The attraction... More

I booked this hotel because it was an older style hotel, its central location, its facilities and price and have not been disappointed. I would highly recommend it! Our room was comfortable with everything we needed including good wifi. Breakfast which was included was very good and plentiful.

We have just come back fromtwo weeks in Madeira where we stayed at the lovely Quinta da Penha da Franca. The weather was mixed, very warm when the sun was out, very wet too on some days. Our stay was made beautiful by the atmosphere at the Quinta da Penha. The staff was very friendly, kind and helpful, the rooms... More

Our fourth stay at the Quinta and pleased to find it retains its comfortable atmosphere and high standards. We have recommended this hotel to friends and none have been disappointed.

This place is a real pearl in comparison to the big, ugly high rise hotels. It is near the city centre. The style is quinta (= old gentry house), the service is excellent - always with a smile.

Our 3rd visit to the hotel. We have always stayed in the rooms with 'side sea view' and found them excellent. We were a little worried at the reports of construction work nearby and possible noise, but that proved unfounded. There is a new hotel being built across the road (and will be under construction for the next 2 years... More
