Reids and CV-19
Ruth and I were the last two for breakfast before the hotel closed due to the CV-19 Pandemic. We were surrounded by the lovely dining staff who were still smiling and optimistic about the future. It was very sad to know that they would be out of work and have no idea as to when they would return. Senhor Campus the CEO had a conversation with us and vowed to support his people for as long as possible. This is only the second time the hotel has closed since WW2. Funchal was deserted on our penultimate day, a sad sight and a foretaste of what we would find when we got back to the UK. We think the hotel is the best thing 'since sliced bread' and we told everone there that we can't wait to get back. Freeman Lynn
A Special Hotel
This was our second visit to Reid’s and it didn’t disappoint. It is a truly beautiful hotel with a great sense of history but what makes it really stand out are the wonderful staff. We loved our room with direct access to the stunning gardens. Other highlights for us at this time of year are breakfasts on the terrace, warm swimming pools and the breathtaking views. We had a number of good meals at Restaurant Cipriani and enjoyed the after dinner music in the bar. We’re already looking forward to our next visit.
Loved the classic atmosphere and great service in this hotel. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Stayed in a top floor room, great sitting in the balcony enjoying the paroramic seaview. Attended the manager's cocktail party with free-flowing sparking wine and an evening in-house concert, both free of charge. Beautiful garden and extensive swimming pool area, including seawater pool and access to swim in the sea. Enjoyed the steam room, though sauna closed and no whirlpool or jacuzzi. Took hotel shuttle into Funchal town, most convenient.
A wonderful hotel with superb views from everywhere. All the staff are beyond expectation and nothing is too much trouble for them. We can’t wait to return this June for some more pampering. It is like returning home !
Pampered afternoon tea!
We booked in advance for Afternoon Tea on the Terrace, some parts of the year it is booked up weeks in advance, so beware.We were not staying at the hotel. We were lucky to have a sunny afternoon with little wind so sitting outside on the terrace was extremely pleasant! The professionalism and attentiveness of the staff left nothing to be desired and the tea itself was outstanding. You get what you pay for in life and this was well worth the price. Thank you to everyone
