This was our first visit to Madeira which started off badly as we had to divert to Tenerife due to high winds. We eventually arrived at the Quinta Mirabela one day later. The tourist maps of the island are not very detailed so it was just as well there were sign posts to the hotel off the main road. We were warmly welcomed and shown to our room which was one of the superior rooms with balcony. I had asked for a quiet room and we were positioned at the far end of the corridor was perfect really. The room was very well appointed and the view breathtaking. There were a couple of small issues with the lights and bath which were rectified immediately and without fuss. The breakfasts are really rather good and we did have a couple of evening meals in the restaurant which were above average compared to most of the hotels I stay in. Of course, a visit to Madeira is not complete without sampling one of the many fine restaurants in Funchal. We had a very relaxing stay at Quinta Mirabella. Overall the hotel was superb and the standard of service first class. We hope to return some day to finish off our exploration of the island.

It is a very good hotel, good location, very good value for money, just one thing concerned me, when I was booking, expedia website says there is buffet breakfast, but in reality you will get 2 baps alittle butter, the same little jam and a little triangle of cheese, 50mi of juice and a cup of coffee. that is it. When I have asked them about breakfast buffet, they have been looking at me with dropped jaws. They have heard about that.
Mr Horta is a star, very friendly, very helpful. The location was also superb in the old part of town: we could walk to everywhere we wanted to go in just a few minutes (old town, shops, teleferico, cathedral, beach, swimming pool, pick up point for levada walks). Others have mentioned it's located up a hill, which it is, but it's a very small hill. I wouldn't have thought it worth mentioning. We did ask to move rooms after a couple of nights because we were near a noisy neighbour's dog, which they did for us and that was a great improvement. There were roadworks outside for the duration, which meant we had no traffic. I don't know how noisy the road would be normally. I'd go back, definitely: the room was all we needed, the family were lovely, and the breakfast was pretty substantial too if you wanted it.

Extended our holiday by staying for 3 nights here. The location and setting were excellent. Take time to explore the orchard, it was wonderful. The breakfasts catered for every possible taste and the only meal we ate in was excellent.
A budget travellers’ bargain! Warm welcome, friendly, spotlessly clean. All sorts of languages spoken or understood. Breakfast includes those delicious small bananas, not a spec of chemical in them. Ideally situated in the old town, minutes from the Areobus stop, buses and coaches, walking distance of the port. Plenty of coffee shops and restaurants nearby, as well as the splendid market and a supermarket. And attractions too: the Se, tourist information, Sta Maria quarter, swimming pool, sea front. Thoroughly recommended.
