Ours was a BA holiday but we contacted the hotel separately beforehand to get a higher floor garden view room. And good it was too: spacious, plenty of storage, double basins in the bathroom and comfy beds. It would have ranked very good if there was a light in the wardrobes (the dark wood and its position made identifying clothes...

The hotel has two sections, the original and a new section by the sea. The views are great and the gardens are nice. We stayed in the original section in a large suite with period decor. It needs some improvements, new beds, two singles just does not do for me, new mattress, improved bathroom would also help. The breakfast was...

This is a very nice hotel with a lovely garden, saltwater swimmingpool, and a quiet atmosphere. Close to city centre and the sea. We have stayed at this hotel for two weeks every Year for the last 7 Years and love it.

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...

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...

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....

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...

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...
