We stayed at Reid's for 3 nights in January this year and couldn't have chosen any better. Beautiful hotel in a stunning location. The grounds are impressive and it has a generally lovely relaxed feel about the place - perfect for a "getting away from it all" short break. We were a bit worried given the history of this hotel that it might feel a bit 'stuffy' and too steeped in history but the staff are so friendly, helpful and courteous that we felt instantly at home. The spa was excellent as was food at both the pool restaurant and Villa Cipriani. We splashed out and had an evening meal at William but whilst the food was visually stunning, we were disappointed with the lack of flavour in some of the dishes. Given how expensive a meal is here, I'm not sure we would go again. I would also agree with other reviews that whilst afternoon tea was good, it wasn't anything out of the ordinary. This was a girls relaxing break but I loved the hotel and Madeira so much that I am already planning a return trip with the husband!

Reid’s is a beautiful hotel with great views and fantastic staff. The afternoon tea was good, but I was expecting it to be better. It is no better than you can get elsewhere for a much lower price. The bread was just standard sliced bread and the scones very ordinary. The cakes were more creative. The best part was the fuss made by the staff.

A lovely hotel with professional and courteous staff. Our room was very clean and comfortable. Unfortunately the dining room was not open on the day we wanted to eat there so can’t comment, The poolside restaurant buffet lunch was brilliant and I would highly recommend.

My wife and I went to Reid's for a champagne afternoon tea arranged by our daughter's for our 45th wedding anniversary. We had been before quite a few years ago but this was ten times better! There was an oblong of chocolate on the table with the words wishing us a happy anniversary. The champagne was lovely to start and then there were five different types of sandwiches with lovely fillings and fresh bread. Then there were scones with cream and jam followed by eight delicious cakes. There was also an excellent choice of speciality teas. We were given seconds of sandwiches, scones and pots of tea! The staff were amazing and we had a table on the veranda with a great view over Funchal. It was a wonderful experience and is to be thoroughly recommended.

There are many good hotels in the world. They take good care of their clients. How do they get from good to great. Meticulous attention to detail is the way. Reid's Palace is a great hotel. Their attention to detail in everything they do shines through to make the stay so satisfying. The room maids can only be described as caring. They care how well the room is presented. No compromises. Bed turn down service checks the room again. Anything that needs doing or replenishing is done. The restaurants are legendary. There is a Michelin 2 star restaurant and you would expect it to be good at that price. Not surprisingly, the breakfast and lunch are presented perfectly. The quality of the food and service cannot be bettered. Whilst you are having breakfast, watch the men preparing the pools and loungers. They clean everything. The pool water is checked. One is set at 25 degC and one at 30 degC. Concierge service is so efficient. There is not enough room here to do the hotel justice. Choose Reid's Palace. You will never consider a different hotel in Madeira. I can't wait to return.
