Windsor Hotel

Portugal, Europe

When you stay at the Windsor Hotel, you'll really get to know the beautiful city of Funchal. The hotel is perfectly situated for holidaymakers intent on exploring Madeira's capital.

But the Windsor Hotel isn't just a handy base; it's a wonderful hotel in its own right. Four star facilities and a cool, contemporary vibe make it one of the capital's best placed, and best regarded hotels. And the views of the incredible Funchal cityscape are breathtaking.

Great location, views and 4 star facilities make the Windsor Hotel one of Funchal's finest

There's a wonderfully friendly feeling at the Windsor Hotel; the staff are helpful and courteous. This isn't one of the island's bigger hotels, but that's an advantage too. It's got a very pleasant boutique feel, and holidaymakers really enjoy its relaxed, convivial atmosphere.

Life at the Windsor Hotel really revolves around the sun deck and pool. So why not spend a day exploring the city, then return for a swim in the beautiful pool - Affording more great views out over the city, this is the place to come to soak up the rays and relax. A cool drink, a comfy recliner, and an occasional dip… sounds like the recipe for a great afternoon to us.

Decor throughout the Windsor Hotel is cool and chic. There's a nice use of blacks and reds throughout the public areas. While guests' rooms are designed with cool, neutral colours and a real emphasis on comfort.

All twin rooms feature an en-suite bathroom as well as cable TV, telephone, fan, minibar and hairdryer. Wi-Fi, air-conditioning and a safe are also available for a small fee.

So if you're looking to really get to know the city, the Windsor Hotel is the one to choose. You're conveniently placed close to a great selection of shops, restaurants and other amenities, and the heart of the city is within easy reach.

But don't forget the Windsor Hotel's own restaurant. Offering a real taste of authentic Madeiran cuisine: lots of wonderful meat and fish and plenty of authentic specialities to tempt you...

There's a real charm and a fine sense of style at the Windsor Hotel. It's just so well placed, so friendly, and so well equipped. No wonder it's one of Funchal's most popular four star hotels. Please note that whilst breakfast at the Windsor Hotel is continental it is possible to pay locally for a cooked breakfast if you wish.

Great location

Review by willtravel6062 Bridgend, United Kingdom

The Hotel Windsor is a funny place to review.Our room,on the fourth floor, was quite small,but as we were not in it all that often it was fine.Breakfast was very predictable,but decent enough,lots of hand sanitizing points all around the hotel,and the view from the roof was great. All the staff were friendly and helpful,but Elsa on reception was fabulous.She was always smiling and laughing and trying to get us to speak a little Portuguese.Great fun. The real beauty of this hotel however is the location...

You are right where you need to be if you want to explore the city or just walk along the promenade. There are some excellent bars, restaurants and cafes withiin walking distance. Some of the newer hotels are on the outskirts of Funchal needing either a long walk or taxi to the city. So for us,Hotel Windsor was ideal and we would certainly stay again when in Funchal.

Review by S2241PRcristinag

Madeira is great but the hotel was awful!

We had to change the room because we paid a double room and we got a single room! All rooms were small and ugly, the furniture very old and ugly too!

The air conditioning broke down several times in one week.

If you want to use the fridge (by the way, it was an empty minibar!), you have to pay for the key!

The breakfast was horrible! We stayed a whole week and we had to eat the same things every morning - scrambled eggs, mini sausages, mushrooms and beans and they never changed the menu! The breakfast was uneatable and we had to buy it from the supermarket!

We definitely will return in Madeira but we will never choose this hotel!

Far Better Than Ok!

Review by raycblue Portsmouth, United Kingdom

Stayed here recently as part of a half board package. This hotel is in a central position and ideal for pretty well anything..eg. buses,restaurants,supermarket etc...

The hotel is in two separate blocks separated by the hotel car park. We had a room on the fourth floor in the block furthest from the road. We were told by others that the rooms nearer the road did suffer from traffic noise. The room was fine. Comfortable bed,clean bathroom and ample storage space. The only minus to me was the meals. Breakfast was normal buffet style and was fine but was confined to a very small area. As a result at busy times it became a little hectic to say the least. Dinner however was a different matter as the few guests who were on half board ate in different room and was far more civilised. The evening meal I have to say was ,to me,typically hit and miss. Overall I would say that this is a decent hotel and would definitely consider staying there again in the future.

Good location and nice rooms

Review by Peter_J_Aarhus

Very central location. Nice room and bathroom. Good service at the front desk...

Breakfast was not impressive, with the selection of items being limited (and did not change from day to day), and the quality was pretty standard.

Hotel on the FLAT in central Funchal with rooftop pool

Review by paul s Colwyn Bay

I have NOT stayed here but I have visited it to research it for a friend who needs a walker (frame) and cannot manage hills or flights of stairs. I was invited to have a good look round and was very impressed with the rooftop pool with commanding views over Funchal. Sadly there is a flight of stairs to access it from the top of the lift.Notwithstanding its central location makes it an ideal location for exploring the island especially as it is very close to all the bus stations.Many of the nearbye streets are pedestrianised and there are a plethora of restaurants, shops and supermarkets on the doorstep.I would certainly consider staying here but it would be unsuitable for my friend because the rooftop pool is such a selling point...

I cannot comment about the food because I visited mid afternoon.
