Liked: Excellent location within easy walking distance of the city. Car parking outside the door. I have stayed at other hotels and villas in this area over the last 10 years, however this represents fantastic value.The hotel staff are, like most Madeirans, kind, helpful and laid-back.

Disliked: Nothing

Liked: Staff is very friendly, the owner provides information that you need. For example, they call rent-a-car company and the company brings car to the hotel. So, you don't have to bother finding an office and walk around the city. Breakfasts are very good! Every room has its own balcony and in front of the hotel there is a small swimming pool.

Liked: This is a very good value accommodation - the property is very quiet at night, enabling a good night's sleep, in nice rooms which have hot water showers at any point in the day or evening. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful - they encourage guests to use the hotel internet and to treat the property like home - no problem borrowing knives, requesting an earlier breakfast etc - you could not ask for a more welcoming guest house.I also noticed that the breakfast was slagged off by someone else reviewing this guest house - well perhaps they are used to five star, but for me, although there was squash rather than fruit juice, there was also fresh fruit every day, plus meats, freshly baked bread, jams, cheese, yoghurt, breakfast cereals and often cake too. We filled up on enough breakfast to last until the evening and never felt unwelcome doing that and were always offered extra coffee.Having travelled around eighty countries and hundreds of guest houses, this would rate as one of the best value overall that I have experienced - the guest house is ideally aimed at people who want a good night's sleep and to get up and go and explore the island in the daytime - all night party goers would be best elsewhere, but for the rest of us, a quiet, friendly and welcoming place is just what most of us want.

Disliked: The car parking is somewhat limited - on one occasion our parked hire car was hit overnight by a rubbish lorry, which meant form filling with our hire car company - some days were fine, but on occasions there was nowhere to park next to the guest house - my advice is in that situation to park in the next street parallel to Melba, where it is much quieter.If you sleep in late, you may be bothered by dogs barking.

Liked: Very cheap private double room with ensuite bathroom. Friendly staff, excellent breakfast. Clean enough but had insects.

Disliked: Clean, but had ants including on the bed.Most of the staff spoke little or no English. There were at least two who did speak English but they were not always around.Located in the hotel district, which is actually not very convenient for Funchal town centre.

Liked: The staff was amazing and always willing to help with whatever problem. As its a family run business it makes you feel home right up on arrival. My room number 310 was very nice, sunny, tranquil and had even internet on the balcony. About 5 minutes walk from the guesthouse (next to the LIDO) you have a small stone beach, where you can swim for free. Restaurants, shops, supermarkets, bus stops are as well in short walking distance. Thank you very much for this splendid week!
