Excellent value for a buffet, lots of choice, house wine very reasonably priced, dessert trolley amazing. Service is excellent, the students try really hard to impress and are watched by senior staff. Lunch price does not include dessert but once you see what is on the trolley it is hard to resist. We had a table near the window with...

This is a superb little bistro hotel on the edge of the Funchel hotel quarter and part of the training college for tourism. The standards are understandably consistently high, staff are excellent and rooms/public areas spotlessly clean. We have used this hotel before and will certainly return again. At the prices charged it is great value even though the rooms...

Currently on day 4 of a 7 day stay and haven't stopped smiling! This hotel is a little gem, room with a view, fabulous food and attentive staff. I had a problem with a tour I booked (independently) being a no show - Sylvia on reception was incredibly helpful in booking me onto an alternative the following day. Breakfast I...

This hotel was recommended to me by my son' school principal so I knew I should expect good service. But we got a lot more than that! This hotel is run by a professional hotel school and therefore the students are in training. But their level of service and professionalism is better than what we've seen in many 4 or...

PRO The price of this hotel was very good compared to other hotels we compared it with on booking.com before booking. We were very well received and the service in the hotel is very good 9/10. The room we got was situated on the second floor had a great view over the ocean and the beach. We got wi-fi signal,...

Recommended by friends, this hotel school does a 3 year course and we were served by youngsters graduating next week. Buffet with great variety, attractively presented. Hot dishes were fine too, especially a rice dish with pulled lamb. Only €7 per person. House wine €8 per bottle. Desserts too delicious to miss but they add €7 each to,the bill. The...

Location is about 15 minutes by bus from Funchal Centre, bus stop is only 100 m. from the hotel. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Nice breakfast buffet and very good (optional) diner for a small price (17.50 EUR for a 3-course diner including wine). Very good value for the money. Room was clean, but the fridge wasn't connected (probably...

We dined twice this month. The Easter Sunday set meal was very fine. Wonderful table decorations and settings, specially printed menu, good service with wine, coffe and sweetmeats included for €25. Great value for money. We will go again when we visit Madeira next time

Good hotel situated on western side of Funchal with a bus stop nearby for cheap, easy transport into the centre of town. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the staff are superb, the food is great too! The only downside is no open bar lounge for some nightlife of an evening apart from dining with drinks.

A fantastic hotel with exceptional and helpful staff, well presented and tasty food, a large swimming pool, sea views, and overall a clean and tidy atmosphere. The rooms are basic but comfortable for any length of stay. The location itself is a long walk from Funchal centre but you know this upon booking and the walk is scenic, a bus...
