Beautiful, relaxing surroundings.

We spent a week at this lovely hotel and wished we could have stayed longer. It is an old colonial building that has very modern facilities and is situated in the most beautiful gardens. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Although the hotel was full, this was not apparent and there were no queues at breakfast (which, incidentally, was excellent, with a choice of individually cooked eggs.} or crowding by the pool, which was a very good size and set in a lovely landscaped setting. Our room,which was a 2nd floor superior room, was comfortable and clean with a balcony overlooking the gardens, from which you could just see the local star, Colombo the giant tortoise. The hotel is about a 15 minute walk from Funchal (Downhill}, which is far enough to preserve the tranquillity of its surroundings, while still making the city accessible We wouldn't recommend walking back as it is quite steep, though the hotel provides a courtesy bus and taxis are about 7 euros. All in all, we found this a most refreshing break and hope to return in the not too distant future.,More

Rest and peace

It was my first visit to Madeira and I could not have chosen a more perfect hotel. Beautiful and well kept gardens .Elegant dining , and very charming and helpful staff. If you want a peaceful holiday away from the hustle and bustle this is it. As there are only three floor levels most of the rooms look onto the gardens and some the sea beyond.All have terrace or balcony.More
