Quinta Da Casa Branca

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It is impossible to fault the exceptionally high standards of service provided by the very caring staff in this perfectly situated hotel. Just a twenty minutes gentle walk from Funchal's vibrant centre, the six acre botanical garden of this Quinta provides an oasis of calm. It's a member of The Small Luxury Hotels of The World organisation, is family owned and contains just 50 spacious rooms and suites. It exudes luxury, from the world class Dining Room restaurant, to it's sumptuous spa, which in addition to everything else, also houses a Turkish Bath. There is also a casual restaurant/bar, The Casa da Quinta, for laid back dining, and The Garden Pavilion, for breakfast and lunch. Two outdoor swimming pools, two libraries, a deck with distant sea views, and beautifully tended lawns, exotic trees, and shrubs. Yes, I love this island, but I visit regularly, for this hotel.

Last time we visited this hotel was 12 years ago and it made such a lasting impression we decided to return to celebrate as a family, my mother’s 85th birthday. On arrival, I was informed my room had been upgraded as I had reserved three rooms - a very nice gesture. From start to finish staff were incredibly helpful, be it with taxis, spa or dinner bookings. A special mention to Giselle who works in the spa, who went out of her way to be accommodating and was so insightful when explaining the treatment - reflexology in particular. Thoroughly enjoyable holiday in fantastic surroundings - will not leave a 12 year gap before our next visit!

Our first visit to Madeira and we were not disappointed! All the 5* reviews had prepared us for a special location and so it was.. a nice walk into the town either inland or by the marina, an excellent location for restaurants in the evening time. The grounds are beautifully tended with care by the many gardeners whilst the front of house and other staff are so helpful but nothing too difficult to arrange. We stayed in an executive room with a lovely view out onto the peaceful gardens. The weather though mixed did allow us to avail of the pool area and breakfast on the terrrace every morning was a delight. Many have already commented on the wide selection of breads, cakes and fruit. For me the pancakes were a welcome treat. We also enjoyed the new flavours of maderia menu in the bar for dinner.. a careful selection of tastes and treats. In the busy world that we live in, it is great to experience a haven of peace and quiet and exemplar customer service. Thank you to all the staff who make this hotel so special.

Our Madeiran home for the past eleven holidays, this hotel really has it all. First and foremost, THE most caring and thoroughly professional staff. Six acres of beautiful botanical gardens, so peaceful, but just a twenty minute downhill stroll to Funchal's elegant shops, restaurants, and bars. A world class gym and spa. Large and very comfortable guest rooms and suites. Two swimming pools, one reserved for adults. Two restaurants, including the magnificently formal 'The Dining Room.' All day food and beverage room service. A stylish bar with outdoor patio and daily 'Happy Hour'. To start the day, a relaxed breakfast, with a wide buffet choice, and/or a la carte. Always a perfect stay.

This smallish hotel is absolutely faultless. The setting is totally different to anything else in Funchal. It sits in exquisite manicured tropical gardens that are kept in top class order by a team of gardeners all of whom apply themselves to keep up perfection. The accomodation just cannot be faulted either. There are various price bands which affect primarily the size of the rooms. You will find not a speck of dust anywhere and all that we saw all have views over the gardens. Yes this is an absolute joy. No wonder the hotel is able to be one of the World Small Luxury Hotels collection. The staff from management to back house to support all are total professionals aiming to work and provide a service that cannot be faulted nor indeed compared to be below any establishment which my also be rated at 5*. It is such a pity that there is not a real 6* category as this hotel would most certainly be in it.

We stayed in this amazing hotel for 3 nights . It just was wonderful.the restaurant is one of the best on Madeira.The rooms look out on to lovely gardens as the staff are friendly and responsive. It is a close walk to the city and a cheep taxi ride back if you want at night. It is a little expensive but if you are coming to Madeira you will spend very little on eating out and anything else .

Well appointed staff who are so friendly and helpful and a beautiful garden setting made this hotel a real pleasurable home during our stay in Funchal / Madeira. I would give this hotel a full five star recommendation, the breakfast that is included in the room rate was excellent and we also dinned in the bar one evening and were provided with a meal that was of an excellent standard too. Comfortable room overlooking the lush and well tended gardens. I would defiantly stay here again. :)

We have stayed at this hotel three times. It is a joy. Close enough to the centre of Funchal but peaceful and secluded. The gardens are beautiful. Rooms are very comfortable indeed. Staff are delightful.

After four visits to Quinta Da Casa Branca we felt it was about time we put a review on Trip Advisor. Each visit was meant to be our last, but having become addicted we have returned each year, with each visit proving even more enjoyable than the last. This year we stayed in a suite in the premium room block, which is extremely spacious with its own sitting room, an enormous bathroom and large veranda. The staff are aoutstanding and do everything possible to make guests feel at home. The housekeeping staff are very efficient ensuring immaculate rooms. The waiting staff are always smiling and helpful. The welcome is always warm. The gardeners somehow manage to make already superb gardens look even better each year. It is a joy to be able to identify each plant, with each fully and clearly labelled. We ate at the hotel a couple of times – always delicious - but we also like to take advantage of the many excellent restaurants in Funchal, several of which are in walking distance of the hotel. There are many first-class hotels on the island, but it would be very difficult to beat this one with its wonderful surroundings, excellent service and air of peace and tranquillty, yet still be within a 25 minute walk from the centre of Funchal and its many attractions.

We had the most wonderful stay at Quinta da Casa Branca. The property is gorgeous and immaculately maintained. The tropical gardens are beautiful. The rooms in the Manor House large and luxurious. The restaurants are fantastic and so is the food with many delicious selections. But it is really the service that makes this hotel so truly outstanding. From the very warm, friendly and professional front desk staff, to restaurant service and everyone else - they all made us feel as if it was home away from home. I highly recommend this outstanding hotel.
