Attended the summer white evening dinner and engertainment in reids palace hotel, saturday 22nd July whilst on holiday in madeira. Staying at a nearby hotel we decided to attend an evening at reids palace, a stunning historical hotel perched on clifftops overlooking the ocean. The hotel was splendid and the staff during the evening event were very attentive, however the quality of the food on offer was very poor, the wine was not much better. For £78 per head we expected better. We ended up leaving early after drinking water and tea for the best part of the night. The hotel location, and the history associated with the place were the highlight of our evening. Better quality produce and decent could have been delivered on the night, overall a disapointment on our holiday.

Afternoon tea is a must, or so you are told before you travel to Madeira. So we did it and booked as soon as we arrived, I am not a food critique or a specialist in the art of afternoon tea, but I have been lucky enough to have eaten afternoon tea at some of the better hotels around the world. The service I have to say is very good but for a 5 star hotel it should be, I did think that you would have had your napkin laid on you lap, but sadly not. The Sandwiches at fairly basic and nothing special at all, roast beef with a pot of horse radish would Have been nice. But they were all pretty bland, and we were not asked if we wanted brown or white bread it just arrived. The scones where very nice, but. Again a prestigious 5 star hotel should be able to supply clotted cream, jams that are not in small jars, and butter not in a foil container. The small cakes were fine but nothing that wowed your taste buds, the tea and champagne was fine, although the crack in my wife's cup was so big it leaked tea in to the saucer, this was changed straight away but should never have left the kitchen in the first place. I hope you do not take this as a complaint because it is not meant to be, but a 5 star hotel should not rely its past history, this is not a cheap experience.

This was my second visit to Reid's, Madeira and apart from the weather spoiling things a bit, it was completely excellent. Again, as a solo, I rely on the hotel staff to sort of take care of me and they know how to do this here. I had the same room as previously, a junior suite with a sea view and a great bathroom! Housekeeping who can make or break your stay are excellent. The breakfast location was a bit disappointing due to current renovations and I hope the new area will be as good as the previous one which overlooked the sea and the pools. Lunch offers a lot of choice in a pool side location. The hotel make a big effort to "entertain" their guests with cocktail parties and a very helpful "day in advance" suggestion list of local trips - a variety of options between 2 hours and 6 hours which is very sensible. You definitely need to book The Fort Restaurant on the front in the Old Town as they will collect you ( for a little extra!) in a classic/vintage drop top car! The hotel has 3 restaurants and every week there is a Champagne (non-stop) buffet and dancing if you are lucky enough to have a partner! The food everywhere is good and the bar staff mix great cocktails! There are 2 heated pools and excellent push buttons at your lounger to summon that much needed cocktail. The waiters became so familiar with my 3 usual options, they chose for me each day! The guest atmosphere for a solo is very helpful as people tend to chat as a result of the cocktail parties which makes for a better stay when you are alone. There is surprisingly a lot to do and see in Madeira and sadly we were a bit hampered by the random wet weather which prevented jaunts in drop top cars. I think it is worth finding out before you travel what "festival" is likely to be on as they have music, vintage cars, motorbikes,films, flowers and food! Reid's location up on the hill gives you great views and it is totally possible to walk down into the town. They also operate a shuttle bus service.This hotel has elegance and old world charm with polite helpful welcoming staff - I would not hesitate to return.

Decided to stay at Reid's for long weekend as we wanted to celebrate my birthday and a special wedding anniversary. We were greeted after transfer from the airport with a very warm welcome by the receptionist and after having unpacked we had a knock at the door from room service to be offered a bottle of celebratory bottle of champagne for my birthday - nice unexpected touch. The room was a reasonable size (Charming Room), very opulent overlooking the swimming pool and sea, with a lovely soft bed and a choice of relaxation pillows. Breakfast each day was next to the swimming pool so we sat outside and enjoyed excellent selection of choices plus freshly squeezed orange juice; service from the restaurant staff was excellent. Only minor dissappointment was the coffee tasted average, nothing special. Next to the pool are very comfy sunbeds and clean towels which the staff will arrange for you upon request; again nothing was any trouble and always a bed was available. There is even an area down below on the very lowest ground floor next to the sea where beds are available, a salt-water pool, and you can going go swimming into the sea - which was a reasonable temp around 23 degrees centigrade. One evening we dined at William's restaurant (Michelin 1 Star) which was expensive but absolutely first class and to be recommended but avoid drinking any water - I was disappointed to be charged 6.50 Euros for the privilege! Shouldn't really complain though because the next evening we returned to our room to find another bottle of champagne to celebrate our wedding anniversary plus a lovely bouquet of flowers. Last but not least you must walk around the vast gardens - all immaculately kept and have all sorts of beautiful flowers and plants! Overall an amazing anniversary hotel with superb star and facilities - if you want luxury and to be pampered then go to Reid's - thoroughly recommended!

This period hotel it's on the cliff side about Funchal, it's very nice with great staff. The food is expensive so be prepared to visit the excellent restaurants close by. The pool s are all very nice on the hot days. Enjoy your holiday.
