A tasteful and relatively upmarket establishment with subtle touches of luxury in the communal areas and grounds.
The location is a little inconvenient but there is a courtesy bus into town and taxis are plentiful and relatively inexpensive.
A small spa facility is a welcome feature and the gardens provide ample space for relaxation and strolling.
An appealing and sprawling villa style building with a deceptively dull looking approach. The garden facing side is attractive and stylish with its broad, metal railed balconies and pleasant walkways. A car park is located by the main entrance for those using a hire car.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: Most rooms
Built Year: 1998
Exterior: Villa-style building
A relaxing and rather refined image prevails with a comfortable blend of modern and traditional touches. A welcoming marble reception is inviting and cool whilst a small lounge area provides an intimate country house feel.
The bar takes the form of another lounge and the restaurant facility borders on fine dining with, again the ambience of an English country mansion.
A wide, covered walkway folds backwards and forwards, according to the weather conditions.
The garden is attractively landscaped with a pleasant blend of lawns, flowerbeds and shrubberies. Tall trees provide some shade and there are over 300 species of flora in the grounds.
A rectangular swimming pool is surrounded by an adequate supply of sunloungers and has a retractable roof.
Area Type: Located up a hill from the centre of Funchal and tucked behind a large mass-market property that monopolises the area. A number of busy roads run relatively close but do not appear to cause any inconvenience. The area is primarily handed over to smart residential properties although the nearest amenities of any worth are almost 1km away. A few local shops and a couple of bars are located 200m away.
Nearest beach: 1.3km (Lido)
