Quiet, great staff, spotlessly clean.

Posted 27-Jan-2014
Pros: Staff, breakfast, cleanliness, peace and quiet, small number of rooms (only 36). Closer to town than many. Nearby bus stop.
Cons: Double bed preferred.
Location: Easy to catch a bus into town and very cheap 1.45euro. Walking takes 15-20 min. and its uphill on the way back! Good restaurants nearby.
I found Perestrello a quiet peaceful hotel. The decor is a bit like an old Auntie's house. Breakfast was a good continental affair. Everything is spotlessly clean. Staff are polite, helpful and friendly and are smartly dressed in their uniforms. The bathroom was a bit tired but shower was powerful and hot so not a big issue. Clean towels everyday. Two single beds were made up as a huge double. Heated swimming pool outside and again the cleaning staff worked hard everyday cleaning the sunbeds etc. I would recommend if you like peace and quiet and don't care about glitz.

Heritage hotel

Posted 22-Oct-2013
Pros: It's small size, quiet and peaceful environment. It was close enough to the centre for easy access but not too near.
Cons: The size of the hotel meant the selection of hot food at breakfast was limited but there was a good selection of fruit and cold savoury items.
Location: The hotel was a gentle 15 minute stroll down hill to the centre or a bus ride back up.
A very pleasant small hotel with character. Having travelled past the large number of enormous hotel complexes in the "Hotel area", we were delighted we chose Quinta Perestrello. We had a ground floor room which was quiet and secluded and we were able to sit outside in or out of the sun. The hotel was a gentle 15 minute stroll down hill to the centre or a bus ride back up. There are several restaurants close by. The hotel restaurant did breakfast and light lunches but not dinners although dinner was available in one of the other three hotels in the "Charming Hotels" group with free transport to these others.

A good experience

Posted 07-Jul-2013
Pros: Pool. Breakfast
Cons: Intermittent wifi access
Very convenient location - for town, restaurants, car hire, etc. Small-ish but not too small to give good service. Excellent breakfast.

good place for seeing Funchal

Posted 30-Mar-2013
Small hotel with helpful, friendly staff; good location about 15mins walk from the centre of Funchal; it would have been even better with tea and coffee facilities in the room. We would stay there again

A handy hotel for sightseeing

Posted 05-Dec-2012
I enjoyed my week at the above hotel. A few gripes...the safe was of no use as I think the key part had been removed. The fruit juice in the mornings was watered down which altered the taste considerably. I was on the third floor and as I am in my 70's i found the stairs a bit of a pain. There are no lifts and there were no men on the staff when I arrived or left to help with my case. As it was 20 kilos, I thought that was too heavy for female staff members to be expected to lift.

Although the decor a little tired in places, it was a delight. The staff were very helpful and the hotel was in a good position.

Pretty hotel - but hot water lacking

Posted 25-Mar-2012 on Hotels.com
This is a really pretty country house-style hotel with a comfortable feel. It has a pool with loungers. Breakfast is plentiful and can be taken outside on the terrace. The room was spotless and kept beautiful by the maid. We had BBC World on the TV. It does not have a restaurant but serves snacks, and meals can be arranged at their other hotels, including a Fado evening. It is about 20 minutes walk from town but about 35 minutes back uphill! The local buses are great - back in 5 minutes.There are a few restaurants nearby worth a visit. Only two things marred the visit - the pillows were terrible (flat and lumpy) and out of 7 nights we had only really hot water 3 nights. We got no satisfaction from the staff and were told to "come back earlier", which didn't actually work - the water was even cold the next morning.when no-one was using it! We did mention that a 4* hotel should not run out of hot water!

Creaky floorboards and position of our room did not make for the quietest of nights, and the hotel was a bit worn.......but the location was good, and the staff were friendly and efficient. Also the breakfast was very good.

small and friendly

Posted 23-Oct-2010
Situated in an area of big, ugly concrete hotels, the Quinta Perestrello had charm, comfortable beds, good breakfast and staff that remembered your name and were only too pleased to help. So pleased with our choice. Good selection of restaurants within a few minutes walk of hotel or in centre of Funchal which was a 15 minute walk away. If balcony is important to you, make sure you pay the extra for a terrace room or one in the new wing.
