Review by stephenmD8662HU

Poor service No pool bar No free room service Breakfast minimal and poor quality In need of refurbishment No information in room Tea and coffee chargeable Location at the foot of a mountain with sheer drops all around.There are no warnings when booking about location so someone who is disabled will not be able to get around without using taxis even mobility scooters unless very powerful will not get up the very steep slopes This is the first and last time we will be staying here

Excellent location

Review by swede02 Stockholm, Sweden

We stayed at this old fashioned hotel for four nights and were pleasently surprised with the large and fresh rooms. Very nice view from the balcony. Can not complain about the breakfast, fresh and tasty...

No charges for our dog.

Not 4 star, but could be...

Review by Quality-inspector69 Funchal, Portugal

This hotel is badly overdue a complete overhaul, the general condition of the hotel can be classed as tired (there is even a hole in the lift floor, see pic). The staff are lovely and a special mention to the pool guys who work very hard. Another observation is that the pool is used by the locals and at weekend it's impossible to find a sunbed despite being a paying hotel guest!! I have stayed at other 4 star hotel in Funchal (Alto Lido) and there is no comparison...

The Savoy Next, which is also next door and has recently been updated is a much better 4 star hotel...stay there if you like the location.
