“Beautiful Hotel”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

We stayed at this hotel in March 2013 and we thought the standards were extremely good and the staff were excellent.
The facilities at the hotel are excellent, we booked a superior room which was well worth the extra cost, the only negative thing is that there should be sun loungers rather than chairs to sit out on the balcony which standard rooms have.
The breakfast was excellent and served by staff who were very helpful and polite, the choice and quality of food was excellent.
We used room service several times which was also excellent. The standard and quality of food was excellent as was the service.
The pool area needs to be updated a little as it is quite dated and more could be done to create more sitting / sun lounge area.
The gardens were fabulous, they were very well maintained by an excellent team of gardeners who always passed the time of day with you when passing.
From the moment we arrived at the hotel the staff did everything to ensure we enjoyed our stay, we thought the staff were excellent and nothing was a trouble to them they always had a smile and were very polite.
We would stay at this hotel again and have no hesitation in giving it the highest recommendation.

Room Tip: We thought the location was fine but it is slightly off the beaten track and the area is very hilly...

An absolute gem of a hotel, low rise and set in a lovely garden. An oasis in Funchal which is becoming dominated by large, high rise hotels. Service was excellent and, as someone who needs a gluten free diet, I was extremely well looked after. Thanks to Manuela on reception who recommended places to eat and then let them know about my diet, and to Delia in the breakfast room who provided gluten free bread and arranged for a special almond cake.

We had a garden room which was good and perfectly adequate, but if you like the afternoon sun, and for a better view of the garden, try one of the superior rooms. I don't understand how anyone can say that the garden rooms are not spacious as they contain big beds, a sitting area and a large bathroom, not to mention an outside terrace with loungers.

Eating out in the old town was excellent - better than the restaurants we tried closer to the hotel. Its very easy to catch a bus.

I agree with all the previous reviewers positive comments about the situation of the hotel and gardens and the breakfast. We had lunch there the first day which was good but the food wasn't as hot as it should of been. We also ate in the restaurant on the first evening, once we had found out how to get in, signage would be helpful from the hotel as the entrance is just off the street, also on the door into the dining room.We didn't try the afternoon tea which is served daily, nor the 'happy hour' when drinks were half price. We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary, unsure as to whether our tour rep had told or staff had seen our cards but we were presented with a welcomed bottle of champagne. I did try the swimming pool and had it all to myself for approx 1 hour, but left once a family took over the pool, it was a bit cool but warm enough to swim in despite being the end of January. I didn't try the spa but would if we stay in this hotel again. Whilst wi-fi was free in the room it wasn't brilliant and only available for one computer/tablet.
As stated by other reviewers there are a number of places to eat and drink within walking distance. For a special meal try the Old Fort in the old town in Funchal or Motzarts (both owned by the same company) where you can have a 3 course meal plus wine, water and coffee for either 39/35 euros respectively.
We would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: The standard rooms on the ground floor have a private patio area overlooking the garden, but no tea...

Great small hotel in luxurious gardens with spa and heated swimming pool. The hotel is architect designed and all rooms aopen out onto the garden with terrace and loungers to catch the sun.

The town of Funchal is about 15minutes walk away and there are many buses to get back as the climb up to the hotel is steep from the coastal road.

The restaurant is good but fromal but the breakfast buffet is great with many choices of fresh fruit, cakes and freshly cooked foods from the breakfast menu, but you can also ask for your own combinations.

Room Tip: Rooms in middle numbers very good plus spa end which face south

On first impression it is hard to see where the rooms are in this boutique hotel. You can definitely see why it has won design awards. We stayed in room 103 - but would recommend to try not to stay at this end of the hotel if possible as you will find as we did that the reception area overhead can be noisy early in the morning. The rooms were clean but I would not say that they were particularly spacious.
The staff were courteous but not overly welcoming in the hotel itself - however the breakfast staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was a mixture of a la carte and buffet - the orange juice (freshly squeezed) was very tasty, suggest choosing from the a la carte menu rather than the hot buffet as the beans and sausages were lukewarm on more than one occasion of our stay.
The gardens are fantastic and are very well cared for and the pool area is secluded from the main garden area.
Would agree with other comments that taking a travel kettle would have been useful to make a hot drink. Also suggest wearing flat shoes if you intend to walk into Funchal - it is not too bad walking down the hill but quite an uphill trek on the return.

Room Tip: Stay at the rear of the hotel closest to the games room/library to lessen disruptive noise from over...

This hotel is unusual in that most of the rooms are at ground level and lead onto the wonderful gardens. We felt very relaxed here as it feels very homely compared to the larger hotels in the area. The breakfast bar offered a good selection and I would recommend that you take the option of ordering your eggs freshly cooked. The room was comfortable and spacious, the spa excellent as we had it to ourselves (maybe this would not be the case high season), The pool area was also lovely although we did not feel inclined to swim in February (even though it would have been warm enough for some people). Thanks to other reviews here we packed a small kettle and teabags since there are no tea making facilities in the standard rooms. There are lovely bars and restaurants within walking distance (we loved the Hole in One Irish pub) but be prepared for an uphill walk back - only a few minutes but quite steep. Take sensible shoes for walking around as a lot of the streets are cobbled.

Room Tip: Standard rooms are at ground level with a terrace area. Superior rooms are first floor with a balco...

This low-rise hotel, set in a meticulously maintained garden, is ideally suited for a restful stay. It is an easy15-20 minutes' walk to the centre of Funchal - it might take longer in the heat of summer, though. The rooms are very clean, comfortable and quiet. The breakfasts are first class with eggs cooked to order (which you don't always get in some very expensive hotels) and a wide range of hot and cold items. The service is very attentive and friendly, adding greatly to the appeal of the hotel. It's where we shall stay if we return to Madeira.
