Lovely Hotel and would recommend
We spent a week at Savoy Gardens, part of a Thomson package staying Half board. Very impressed at the hotel, very clean and very well looked after. Room - We stayed on the mountain view side, we slept with the window open and you could hear the distant barking dog and the cockerel, but it did not disturb us. It was very well equipped with fridge, kettle, linen, fresh towels and pool towels. The bed was over 6 feet wide but it was 2 singles joined together, so there was a teeny gap in between. TV, bath and shower... radio in the bathroom. Lovely!! Hotel - Numerous bars, games room, roof top sun loungers and Jacuzzi, honesty bar up top. The reception was spacious and free WiFi throughout. Spotless! The pool looked nice but we opted to sit on the roof top, the views were stunning. Food - Breakfast was plentiful and loads of choice. Hot / cold and light / plentiful. Evening meals were nice but a lot of hot food was served in loads of sauce. It would have been better to serve fish with sauce on the side. The salads and cold buffets were lovely. The nice touch was every guest had to sanitize their hands before taking a seat. Staff - From reception to cleaning team to chefs and servers - all amazing and so efficient. The Thomson staff on site were all lovely too. Location - If you have reduced mobility you will easily get round the hotel, but the local area is very hilly and you have a fair hike to walk anywhere. Walk into Funchal 20-25 minutes. There is a local supermarket 5 minutes walk, and we recommend buying coffee tea and milk there, the hotel will provide free for first night and then replace at a cost of 8 euro, but it is so much cheaper in the mini market. Also bottled water is 0.33c per 1.5l bottle in the shop, the hotel is 2.50 euro. The hotel operates a cash free environment which is good if you are sunbathing and fancy a snack, you don't need your wallet. Would definitely recommend and would return. Thankyou.More

Excellent 2 week Stay
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Savoy Gardens Funchal last October 2014 never having visited the island before. we could not fault this hotel. The staff from the restaurant, housekeeping, reception etc did an excellent job.The lovely hotel is kept very clean, fresh bedding etc very regularly and they will deal with any request promptly. the food was very good lots of choice. we particularly enjoyed sunbathing on the roof terrace and dipping into the jacuzzi. some super views from up there looking at the cruise ships arriving/departing.We had lovely weather too. Yes the hotel is not situated on the seafront it has an elevated position. The rooms at the front of the hotel have sea views with spectacular views and get the sun. You can walk downhill from the hotel to the harbour area in 30 minutes a lovely walk then you can either walk back or taxi/bus it. bus stop outside hotel. A good walk at the rear of the hotel is to see Funchal,s new football ground. Funchal can be hilly but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel.More

Very Good Hotel, But Badly Let Down By The Food
This is a very good Hotel with spacious rooms which are well appointed. The maid service is faultless and all of the staff are very polite and helpful. The Breakfast Buffet is very varied and of a good quality. The evening dining experience is very let down by the food which although plentiful and varied does not deliver in the terms of quality! Mass catering never works, over cooked vegetables, dry meat, and at times the food was unseasoned and bland. It would have been nice to experience more of the local cuisine in house. I would return but only on a B&B basis, the food served at Dinner time really does let down what is a very good hotel! More
Anlaby-Traveller, Kingston-upon-Hull, United Kingdom
Stayed for two weeks. Whilst checking in given the option of paying 150 Euros & receiving 172.5 Euros credit to spend in the hotel on food & drinks etc. This we found to be very good value. The hotel also has a happy hour from 6pm till 8pm every day. The restaurant also has a wine promotion several times a week. Food in the buffet restaurant was a good standard with plenty of choice at breakfast and dinner. Our room had a sea view & balcony, free Wi Fi safe & fridge, noise from the road wasn't an issue. Staff were very helpful any problems sorted immediately. James our Thomson rep was the best we have ever had always available and willing to help. Evening entertainment by the duo Panache plus the Thomson entertainment team Leah & Ruth was excellent. The hotel is not far from Funchal but this being Madeira the area is very hilly so the not so fit might want to factor in the cost of taxi /bus fares neither are very expensive. We booked our excursions with local agents far less expensive than Thomsons.More

Nice relaxing boutique hotel
We stayed here in September 2014, had a great holiday. Hotel was first class and the staff were very efficient, would definitely recommend. The island of Maderia is a must for exploring, we did this by ourselves rather than opting for organized tours, which works out a lot cheaper, you will not be disappointed .More
