Fell in love with this hotel & location, the quaint church we could see from our room with balcony sea view which chimed every hour, being a former manor house with original period features...loved the chandeliers in the dining area. Staff were friendly & helpful, great breakfast & evening meal. Beautiful well kept gardens & pool area..I can't praise this hotel enough. Tip ...our mattress was hard so asked for a mattress topper which made it nice and comfy.
Love this hotel & location, unfortunately when we arrived we were told our room was double booked, we were offered their sister hotel Quinta das Vistas a 5 star which we would have definitely not chosen because of location & not the sort of hotel we would chosen, the hotel was also dead at night. We were given a suite which was great but didn't compensate us at all even with a free evening meal with one glass of house wine which wasn't good, the only choice we had with the 3 course meal was mains meat or fish. We had to put in a voucher for our meal so immediately felt like paupers! The location of the hotel was not suitable for walking to or from the town due to very steep roads with no footpaths so had to use taxi's, we are both in our 60s. We were very upset & this had ruined our holiday. After 3/4 emails complaining we eventually were offered the room of our choice at Quinta Bela Sao Tiago, after they had offered us free taxi's & a massage at the 5 * but we just wanted to stay in the hotel we had booked which is such a lovely period hotel. I initially agreed to this then burst into tears as this still didn't compensate us for the hotel we had chosen,, this was our first visit to Madeira we were so looking forward to visiting the beautiful island & especially being in a hotel within walking distance to the old town. They shouldn't treat people like this, the whole experience was very upsetting.
Views were great, it was a close walk to downtown but far enough away for peace and quiet. Lots of food options within a 5 minute walk. There was a lovely church and bell tower in front of the hotel that complimented the view. Breakfast was top notch. Hotel was very nice! Would highly recommend.
Room was slightly warm even with air conditioning running
Lovely staff at check in. Very helpful. Nice pool. Cheap cocktails.
We had cockroaches in our room and it was treated as if this was normal in Madeira.
Nice big rooms and balcony.
Smoking is allowed on balcony,both sides to us smoked and we had their horrid smoke!
The size of the rooms and the views from the balconies attached to the rooms
