After a fantastic week enjoying everything Madeira had to offer, we decided to treat ourselves to afternoon tea at Reid's Palace for our final day, following glowing reviews from family who had visited before. They weren't wrong. From the moment we arrived, we were extremely well looked after by attentive staff, and had a table with a glorious view over...

For discerning travellers who want the best, this hotel delivers over and above any expectations. Iconic building looks a little dated from the outside but inside it is opulent in a stylish way ... not in the least garish. Staff are courteous and nothing is too much trouble ... even oddball requests. One can see why this hotel has been...

We had a great afternoon tea sitting on the terrace overlooking the bay. Upgraded to champagne tea, which was excellent. Refills galore, great selection of teas, fab scones and too many cakes to eat...it was a lovely afternoon. Surprised they do not have boxes to go, which is common in many London afternoon teas. There were too many cakes to...

Two years on from staying at another hotel, which was perched on a cliff looking over to Reid's - we decided that, we had to stay there having had a quick look around last time. The old and new surroundings equate to a classic hotel, which has some of the best views of Funchal. Breakfast time was memorable each day...

This hotel is fantastic! This was our final stop after sightseeing for 6 days in Amsterdam and Paris (lots of walking and a long to-do list in those cities). Reid's Palace was the perfect end to the trip!! I didn't leave the hotel once, as there was no need to go anywhere if you didn't want to! Breakfast and the...

We stayed in a superior room overlooking the gardens with sea views. Very comfortable and spotlessly clean. All food was delicious, varied and well presented. All the staff were extremely smart, courteous and very helpful. We will definitely visit again. Thank you to everyone for a very memorable stay.

Spent 5 days at Reid's. Generally my wife and I really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is exceptionally well positioned with a beautiful view over Funchal. It is a great place for relaxing with excellent swimming pools and a tennis court. Most of the guests seemed to be retired Brits and the atmosphere was like a club. The staff were...
