Location could be better but very friendly and clean

Cost us extra but our Junior Suite was good value with 2 balconies and extra small "lounge" in which we put our suitcases in. We had room 401 which was just high enough for a good view but higher the better if you want to see Funchal. Ensure you have sea view as was rather rough at back of hotel. Room had queen size comfy bed, very large free safe, fridge and kettle. We had 2 TV's but both rather small but quite a few English channels. Server (bit slow but OK) in room so strong WiFi signal. Tissue / soap / coffee / tea all replaced when empty. Did want extra €9/W for bathrobe & slippers which thought expensive. Food was quite good but limited in choice, some tables very close together and difficult to walk round buffet when busy. Drink prices acceptable, prepay on arrival €150 to get €172 credit and every other night wine discounted in dinning room. Could get a bottle of wine for about £10 at night in the rather pleasent downstairs lounge. Very good entertainment by Domino and Lisa. Location was about 15 minuits walk to Funchal but not easy to find best way as several steep roads to get down to main road. There was bus stop just outside hotel but not Frequent and you need to go down to other bus stop about 10 minuets away for more frequent service but this did have a No 48 all the way to Monty. If using Bus then get pass with 10 trips for just €13 at bus station as much cheaper than €1.9 per jouney. Good walk along Laverda just at back of Hotel all way to Camara de Lobos and beyond but can be slippy.More

Our 2nd Visit

This was our 2nd visit to the Savoy Gardens having stayed at this hotel in April 2013. Our stay this time again for 2 weeks, 1st - 15th December. On again we were not disappointed. We had a sea view room on the 6th floor. The room was kept very clean, plenty of wardrobe space, free safe and fridge. Bathroom nice and bright. We did like the floor carpet around the bed and dressing table area as this helps to keep the sound down when walking around. The food was very good, infact we thought even better that when we last visited. Plenty of themed evenings with a good choice of dishes. Breakfast more than adequate, again various choices from Continental to "full" English. Some of the tables in the dining area are a little too close together, however if you chose to eat at certain times then this is not a problem, especially at the far end of the lower dining area overlooking the pool.. As for the dining room dress code great to see "No" shorts policy for evening meal. Overall we found the staff very courteous and helpful. The reception staff always had a welcoming smile and made sure any questions we had were dealt with promptly. The hotel and grounds are well kept. Christmas lights and decorations were a "nice touch". The only comment I would like to make is the swimming pool. It is supposed to be heated, however as of the last visit we found it quite cold and very few people ventured in. It is a shame as it is a lovely pool in very nice surroundings. We did venture into the sister "Savoy Hotel" where put our hand in the outside pool and found it quite warm?. Although the hotel is up a hill you can get a 24 bus into Funchal. The bus stop is about 100 yards from the front of the hotel. Walking time into Funchal about 35 minutes. The local "barking" dogs are still there, (they don't bark all the time) but we did not find them a problem. Remember the hotel is in a residential area. We travelled with Thomson. The 'rep" Phil was very helpful. As may previews have stated the Thomson entertainment team are very good. Dom and Lisa work well together and there is Adele, what a singing voice a pleasure to listen to her, classical, musical and pop. Overall we really enjoyed our 2nd visit to the Savoy Gardens. It is a Thomsons "Couples" Hotel, however most of the couples appear to be over 50. If you want quite relaxing holiday with good food and excellent surroundings then look no further than the Savoy Gardens Will we return... the answer is YES.More

Wonderful Hotel

I stayed with my mum in a sea view bedroom it was lovely to sit out with a nice view. The staff were all very friendly and went out of their way to make us welcome. We stayed half board and the food was good with change and different selection in the evenings. The hotel is on a hill but it was not that bad you could walk down to town and get a taxi back so that wouldn't stop us going again. Madeira is a beautiful island and this is a perfect base for exploring. My mum was 75 when we visited and the hill posed no problems for her, depends on your fitness level really. We travelled in February and had nice weather, one day rain but only light it was a nice time of year to visit with many sunny warm mild days. Well done to the staff and managment for a lovely run hotel.More


A hotel on the hill

Back from a warm & sunny Funchal last week after a week of half board stay.We would like to thank all the hotel staff who made our holidays wonderful.We also thank Thomson holidays who were excellent from the time we landed in Funchal till we left for home.Transfer was smooth & uneventful.Thomson reps were very professional and helpful. About the hotel,location was on the hill from the centre.We walked daily everywhere,it took about 45 minutes to Funchal centre.It could be tiring to walk up to the hotel especially if you have mobility problem.There are a lot of slopes in Funchal.If you prefer not to walk then buses or taxi are plentiful.We booked a mountain view room but was given a room on fifth floor with both views,so it was wonderful.Room was clean & tidy,daily housekeeping was done very well.Plenty of hot water and our room was adequate for two.We had very peaceful sleep every night.Tea & coffee facilities were provided but hotel charged for tea & coffee.We just bought hot & cold beverages from nearby supermarket(on the main road near Reids hotel). Hotel breakfast was good,plenty of both cold & hot food,more than adequate.Evening meals were good too,with hot dishes changed daily.There was always a fish dish.Cold spread was good too.Desserts were tasty with different cakes and fruits as well as ice creams.Restaurant staff were very friendly as well as helpful.They always had a big smile on their face. Night time entertaining was good and different every night.They were organised by Thomson.We enjoyed it very much. About Madeira,it is a very pretty island.We had done a few excursions,booked with Thomson.I suppose you could look around from outside providers if you wish.They are a must if you want to see this beautiful island.We also did a lot of walking as well as retails therapy at the nearby Forum shopping centre.All in all we had a very good time.We would recommend Savoy gardens hotel as well as Funchal.More

Simply excellent

We have just returned from our stay at this hotel. Our overall impression was very good. The room although average in size was kept very clean and tidy by the housekeeping stafff. The food was also very good. We booked half board. The choices availed for both breakfast and evening meals was very extensive. The dinning room and catering staff were very friendly and helpful. Be prepared to gain a little weight during your stay. The extra facilities and entertainment were well used by us. The Thomson staff were on hand to help and make sure you enjoyed your stay. The hotel is situated on a slope so you need to be fairly fit, but there is an excellent bus and taxi service. Not sure how complaints concerning change over day are fair as the staff made sensible suggestions to make sure you were happy and we were quickly informed when our room was ready. We certainly will use this hotel again and recommend it to those visiting the lovely island of Madeira.More
