    It is a lovely hotel, our mountain view room was extremely comfortable and clean. The hotel staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful and full marks go to Bruno in the Woogie Boogie bar. Also it was my husband's birthday while we were there and the housekkeper must have noticed his birthday cards on display and informed the management, because when we returned to our room there was a bottle of champagne and two champagne flutes waiting for us. Little touches like that go a long way towards guests returning to the hotel another time.

    Hard to find fault, but the rooms are only supplied with tea and coffee for two days and then there is a charge of €3 for a fresh pack. There was an enormous choice of food for breakfast, but unfortunately the "hot" food was barely warm and luke warm scrambled eggs are not very appetising.

    Rooms were very clean, view over Funchal was very good and free Internet in all rooms. Overall very good value for money.

    Breakfast buffet was a bit boring, always the same. Staff could do with a bit of a smile every once in a while.

    Despite we booked the room for a very reasonable price, we got a larger than average room with a beautiful view. Location is far better than the Lido hotels. Excellent services & staff.

    The regular cleaning of the room during our stay was insufficient, the towels did not seem always clean after we asked for a change (dropped it on the floor). The floor has more and more dust day by day. This was really a minor nuisance, don't let this turn you away from this hotel.

    Excellent position with a nice view of both mountains and the see, specially from the upper floors, very good breakfast, free parking, tea-kettle in the room, spacious room with comfortable beds

    limited control of the TV (no possibility to reply a video from my camera) but they got it right by supplying a more fancy remote controller

    Fabulous

    I thought the staff was very polite and always helpful to everybody no matter what language they spoke. It was my birthday while I was there and they arranged a dinner, cake and bottle of Cava for me and my wife that evening, with all the hotels I have stayed at in the world, none of them have ever done this for me before, very nice touch to a wonderful week in Madeira.

    The ari conditioning, it did not work properly while I was there, I did ask somebody to come and look at it, which they did, but was still not working to a cool tempature, so most nights we had to sleep with the door open to cool the room.

    Very good hotel facilities, room size and comfort. Decent location within short downhill walk of city centre. Excellent choices for breakfast.

    Very good

    Hotel was stylish and nicely decorated and was closer to Funchal than the hotels in the "hotel zone". It was within walking distance (1 mile) to the restaurants.

    The hotel reception staff seemed to be indifferent.

    Excellent hotel, one of the best i've ever stayed at. Nice view, friendly staff and good facilities. If there were som kind of problem in your room, this was taken seriously and were fixed immediately. Breakfast was fine, some hot food, cheese, ham, jam and so... Lots of fruit and even champagne (sparkling wine) for breakfast! In the evenings there were som kind of show in the bar (folklore, dansers etc.). We never went to lunch or dinner, but it was buffet with different content from evening to evening. We recommend this hotel.

    Small elevators. When busy they became very slow. At breakfast, sometimes we didn't bother wait for the elevator ant took the stairs. Hotel is located on a hill in Funchal, so the roads were pretty steep... There are big roads surrounding the hotel, and therefore some noise but we didn't find it a a big problem.

    Very good

    Good location. 15 minute walk to some very nice restaurants and the sea front. 25 minute walk to the old town and hotel zone. Ample car parking if one hired a car.

    Very poor information about the hotel facilities and the general area it was in. One had to ask reception for almost everything however hey generally only had one receptionist working and so one had to queue for quite a while everytime one had a question. Our shower kept leaking into the room and despite numerous complaints it took days to fix and when we asked to move room we were offered an inferior room, when we asked for a reduction on our bill this was refused by the receptionist although she said we could speak to the manager but she didn't know where he/she was and therefore how long they would be (we had a flight to catch)!

    Location was excellent.Walking distance from centre and Lido. Good car park, and easy to drive from hotel in any direction.

    Crowded at breakfast and coffee machine queues were ridiculously slow and long.
