Nuno and Samantha were wonderful, friendly and superbly welcoming. The hotel has beautiful views of Funchal from the delightful garden, and is approximately a ten minute walk in to the centre. Will definitely be staying again! Thank you for making my stay so lovely x

This was my first trip to Maderia for a walking holiday with my wife. We wanted a hotel with views and only a short walk from the old town where many of the bars and restaurants are located. We were not disappointed. The room was a spacious one bedroom suite in the beautifully and sensitively renovated 'old' house with its...

Beautiful hotel very modern. Staff very helpful and polite!! Rooms are extremely spacious, clean and very modern. Bit of a walk up the hill, 10 min walk from old town there is a shortcut when using google maps. Bus stop is actually at the door on both sides, which is very handy!! Thanks for a great stay!!

Hello Amanda, thank you so much for your kind words. We always joke that the walk up the hill means that we can indulge at dinner! Indeed we are privileged to be located right next to not just one but two bus stops. We can't wait to see you again. With warm regards, Samantha and the team

This small Arts in Hotel Conde Carvalhal is so pretty and functional with friendly and helpfull/competent staff in reception. And because of its cosy and personal atmosphere it feels like home from home, but with someone else doing a good job with the careful cleaning of rooms!

Lovely little hotel (just 18 rooms) extended beautifully from the original 'stone' Madeiran villa. New rooms (we had a top floor room facing the front/sea) are very tastefully decorated, as are the public spaces (inside and out). The gardens and terraces are lovely: big enough to be comfortable, but small enough to be 'private'. Suited us perfectly. The staff were...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This enchanting, carefully restored Madeiran mansion is a 15 minute stroll from Funchal's Old Town, with sweeping ocean and mountain panoramas from its own botanical gardens and terraces. Designed by esteemed Portuguese architect Paulo David, this is a true art hotel with an annual curatorship, showcasing the very best local artists. Wandering the property, you will delight in stumbling upon hidden vistas, or encountering the latest urban photographic print from 2016 curators Urbanistas Digitais. Tended to by their own in-house gardener, the grounds boast exceptionally rare plants and ageing trees, such as Madeira's bewitching "Dragoeiro". Breakfast holds claim to strong, Portuguese coffee and homegrown, organic herbal teas and fruits. The charming service team will welcome you "home" as cherished friends and family, assuredly sharing with you the island's best kept secrets. Furnishings in the rooms are bright and breezy with wooden floors and air conditioning throughout. All rooms are connected to complimentary wireless internet, many with well-equipped kitchenettes and open terraces. Suites are located in the original mansion, while the studios are situated in a modern annex. Covered, on-site parking is both secure and complimentary. A private transfer service is available from Madeira Airport, which is a 20 minute drive from the hotel. ... more   less
