Reid's is without doubt the best hotel on Madeira, not least because of the history. When you are there you can't help feeling a part of something bigger, something more civilized something that has and will be there for ever. But it could be so much better. The old facilities are well maintained but they need and upgrade everywhere, whether in the rooms, in the breakfast restaurant or in the common areas. This could be one of the best hotels in the world but it's living of the past and that's a pity.

A score of four is harsh for this lovely hotel, but it’s not quite perfect and it is expensive so I don’t want to raise false expectations. People have commented that the hotel is a bit old fashioned, with an elderly clientele. There’s some truth in that although some areas such as the cocktail bar were livelier and attracted a slightly younger group. There was music in the cocktail bar most evenings and that seemed to help. We paid extra for a superior room which had a balcony and a stunning view, but it was only just spacious enough. The hotel is wonderfully situated with gorgeous views and gardens, and I would have been disappointed to stay here with a smaller room or one without a view so I think it’s definitely worth upgrading to a superior room. Oddly our room had twin beds made up separately and pushed together. However the sheets were proper crisp linen ones, and changed daily. The bathroom was immaculate and spacious, but a bit dated. One shortcoming which should have been rectified by now, is a lack of power points for recharging phones, laptops etc. We had to unplug a lamp to find even a second plug between two people. Breakfast was included in our room rate as were all the soft drinks from the mini bar, but everything else came at full five star prices, so those costs do have to be factored into the budget. Once you’ve done that you can sit back and enjoy the five star quality of the service. When we rang for tea or coffee a tray would arrive within about five minutes. When we chose to have continental breakfast in our room (included), a trolley would arrive within five minutes and be set up as a table on our balcony by smiling, helpful staff. Trays and trolleys were removed just as quickly when we’d finished with them. We sat in the garden one sunny morning and cushions and towels were brought out to us. When I asked for three copies of one of the postcards we found in our room the reply was “We’ll send six!” Check out time is a generous 12 noon. We did the famous tea on the terrace – it’s very popular and some of the cruise ships send groups, so booking is essential. I had expected a bit of a tourist production and was pleasantly surprised to find a calm spacious feel, with the piano tinkling in the background. Also the sandwiches, scones and cakes actually were quite delicious unlike so many of the fancy teas on offer in grand hotels. Patisserie seems to be a strong point here – the bread, croissants and cakes at breakfast were also well above average. Overall we really liked this hotel and would probably come back. We found all the staff genuinely helpful and friendly and that made us feel very at home there. It is expensive but we felt that we got what we paid for.

Of course it's really good, of course it is the best in Madeira and of course I loved it and will return but one can't help thinking how much better it could be. The incredible charm of the main building, its veranda and overall service is not matched by the details of the decor. The main restaurant "William" has a Michelin star but it feels dated. The overall service is really good but I was sent to park my car instead of them doing it. Details, I know, but at this level it's all about the details.

Spent another glorious week at this hotel. As usual service was impeccable staff lovely rooms and food just as one would expect from such a well renowned hotel. My only comment would be please Belmond do not destroy the uniqueness of this hotel. The orange and brown Belmond logos are popping up everywhere and they really don't suit this grand old lady. For example all of the toiletries are now badged with the corporate logo which jars with the beautiful marble bathrooms gone are the flowers and blue decal from the stationary to be replaced with the modern Belmond logo. I understand corporate branding but please don't take it too far! The hotel itself is currently undergoing some modernisation to make the entrance a little more obvious for the traveller and perhaps giving it a little more street presence which should be finished by April. They are also changing the breakfast and pool dining areas so we will wait and see what that is like but I think I will miss the first floor breakfast room with the wonderful views over the Atlantic. That said we still had a wonderful time taking full advantage of the gala evenings in the dining room and indulging our passion for dancing in the bar whenever we could. The resident pianist was as always lovely ensuring that he played a range of tunes to enable us to dance and the atmosphere as always was friendly. I can't wait to come back next year

Whenever we are in Funchal either on holiday or visiting by cruise ship we always make a point of calling in Reid's for a drink or two on the terrace. The service is second to none and the view over Funchal harbour is just beautiful. A real treat and although only visiting briefly you are treated like the most important guest.
