Lovely views, smaller hotel in peaceful location in Funchal

Lovely stroll downhill from hotel into centre of Funchal and cheap taxis to bring you back (if you don't want to walk) to this lovely hotel in peaceful part of town.There are no other hotels right nearby which was a plus. Fabulous roof terrace with views over bay to watch the cruise ships coming and going. Spotlessly clean pool and drinks/bistro terraces. This hotel is beautifully cared for. Food a bit same-y and not very adventurous. Don't be too late in for breakfast or dinner, if you want a good choice of dishes. Would return- excellent value!More

Trying to think of something negative .(sill thinking)

Just got back from the Savoy Gardens today, and thinking what's not to like about this place , being back home , on a serious note this is one nice place, Smallish very comfortable , quality fixtures & fittings first class quiet location with wonderful views , Go for a sea view if you can, we had the sixth floor saw the Britannia docking this morning from our balcony . Food great , staff great ,cleanliness wonderful loved the idea of applying hand cleanser before entering the dining room , take a look at their website does just what it says on the tin. My first trip to Madeira hope it won't be my last and when I do it's the Savoy Gardens for me, take a bow Savoy Gardens and staff you did us proud, if you want a quite relaxing quality holiday with awesome views this is the place for you, enjoyMore

Having been recommended to stay here, it was all we expected it to be, the staff were all very friendly, the food was lovely, our room was large, the balcony was small but plenty big enough for 2 chairs & a table. We would definitely stay there again when visiting Madeira.Taxi into funchal is about 5euros & bus fare is 3.90 for 2 people.More

Great expectations - 95% fulfilled

In the UK it is marketed as Couples hotel and the clientèle was definitely on the more mature side Location (its uphill as is virtually everywhere) – west side of funchal – there are 2 main ways to walk in Funchal – one which would take 25 mins to the centre or the other going straight down from the hotel until the main road turning left – in all a 35 mins ish stroll - There is a supermarket nearby – turn right out of the hotel, cross the road and down again and the bottom of that road turn left – supermarket is in a block of shops – there is a more gradual way back past the supermarket if you don’t fancy the hill back – the yellow bus (tourist hop on hop off) appeared to stop outside the hotel – we walked and walked and walked Had a Thomson transfer coach from the airport – the coach is too large to get in to the hotel forecourt so our luggage which picked up at the airport and transported separately and was just about there when we arrived – the reverse happened when we left – we boarded the coach separately to our luggage which was at the airport for collection - There are steps in front which carrying up a case may be difficult but there is a path on the right hand side which allows a more gradual approach to the hotel entrance if there are mobility issues Reception – on the right hand side as you enter – very friendly and helpful throughout our stay Room – very clean and surprisingly spacious - we had booked a sea view with balcony – we were on the 6th floor away from the lifts – however talking to someone whose room was by the lifts they said they weren’t disturbed at all by the lifts or people. The usual, pop your room key in to the fitting on the left hand side of the wall for electricity – plenty of storage space, a bathroom including a bidet, toilet, bath and shower – the shower is over the bath, there is a handle on the bath/shower wall for support and also an in-bath shower mat plus toiletries – AC also fine A reasonable sized fridge, safe, TV mainly local but BBC world news if required – a HUGE bed – mattress was quite firm and the pillows were as well but soon adjusted The balcony isn’t big but sufficient with 2 chairs and a table and faces the sea which gave good views – it was worth the extra in our opinion - Maid service was good Wifi – there is free wifi in the room set up as an access point but in our room it was exceptionally unreliable dropping connection, wouldn’t connect , slow connection speeds etc etc – it does need sorting out – in the end I switched it off and connected to another point (room) nearby which was much more reliable Food Yes its a buffet style but there was plenty of choice and you could eat as much or as little as you wished The restaurant is split over two levels – 5 or so steps the lower level has seats by the window which gives views over the pool towards the sea and were popular – the upper level is nearer the food Breakfast – the usual cold, cooked and continental breakfast (somewhat different bacon and sausages), porridge which wasn’t bad – try it with mulberry jam, fresh fruit, there were vegetarian options and you could have a fresh omelette made – so plenty of choice – if you can’t see it browse – the only thing I couldn't find was tomato ketchup – numerous brown sauces though Dinner (served from 6:30 long trousers required (for men) – on entry you are requested to use hand sanitizer which is good but the policy of watching you do it varied greatly throughout dinner service and was virtually absent at breakfast – which isn’t logical Serving staff – not a huge interaction but tables cleared very quickly but a quick hello to Erica who was always smiling and willing to help. Food is thematic – different theme each night, again browse if you can’t find anything you like there is always an alternative somewhere (even if its a tad different) overall the standard of food was very good for buffet service (for an omnivore and vegequarian –so mixed food requirements) Yes, the pairs tables on the lower level are too close together but you do get to meet and chat to new people that way Wine – (the hotel does have to make a profit somehow as does every restaurant in the UK) every other evening there was a wine promotion so a bottle of wine approx 13 euros approx £10 (depending on rate) – on none wine promotion evenings 19 euros (£14) - whilst it is considerably cheaper to buy it outside it is nice to have wine with a meal – some people bought it one night and drank half the bottle and the hotel saved it until the following night - payments – the hotel is cash free (until you checkout) and so you sign for everything which is great and so there aren’t any misunderstandings - they also had a happy hour (which was 2hrs from 6-8pm on cocktails) which seemed popular Trips – we didn’t use any of the Thomson trips but used Lido tours instead whose minibuses picked us up at front of the hotel and delivered us back there afterwards and seemed cheaper than anywhere else (for a genuine tour) and were very good All pool work was finished which we didn’t use (apparently unheated) there is a nice panorama area from the 7th floor – good views – didn’t use any of the other facilities as we did our own thing every day In summary great hotel – very good food – clean – excellent value for money on the Thomson break – just needs to sort out the Wifi (which worked fine in the lobby) and possibly tomato ketchupMore

Very poor room

We left the Savoy Gardens after a weeks holiday May 4th 2015. Very disappointed with the room, very small box room with an even smaller balcony. Only one person could either stand or sit on the balcony. This was certainly not four star accommodation. I complained about the room and balcony to reception and asked to be upgraded, the receptionist very rudely said that this was the room I had asked for and there was no other. The hotel is certainly not worthy of 4 stars at the most 2 or 3, very disappointed. The hotel was booked with Thomson Holidays, maybe Thomsons should review the hotels they use more carefully and make sure their customers get better rooms.More
