I would have given a higher rating here if it wasn't for the unfortunate circumstances of our stay. First off, the good parts: 1) The owner was incredibly friendly, even giving us a free lift in his car about 2 km to the airport bus stop as we had 5 bags. Thank you publicly for that Agostino.:-) 2) Breakfast food...

A unique experience of a bygone era with a superlative host, Agostinho, who surpassed his reputation on trip advisor. The most noteworthy and prized feature is The Tower Room, all in all a home away from home. Thank you.

It was an excellent choice. I travel regularly abroad and stay in hotels 4 and 5 stars, but Vitorina Court Guesthouse feels an extra star for the very warm and thoughtful personalized atmosphere, friendliness and helpfulness of the people. The historic house very near the sea is well located. One of the favorite spots for a holiday in Funchal.

We loved everything about staying at the guesthouse. From the moment we arrived, Augustino made us feel right at home. Our room was comfortable and we had the most beautiful view of the ocean from our window. The furniture was antique and had so much lovely character! Our room had a double bed and a single bed, as well as...

I must start with the hosts at this guesthouse, from the moment we arrived to the time we left we were attended to by the hosts who made us feel so welcoming, that it was just like being at home. I have never been so sad to leave a guesthouse and return home. Also from a parents perspective they make...

This is a hard one, people. We stayed at this guesthouse on the strength of excellent reviews. First the good stuff!- excellent location, on the edge of the old town, with views of the sea and the sound of birdsong. - veranda with all day sunshine big enough to sit out and read with a glass or two! - a...

I've been visiting Madeira (and Vitorina's Guest house) for over 20 years, and this is still my favourite place to stay--perhaps now even more so, since it has been given a renovation. (All the lovely old Madeiran furniture is still there, but now fresh paint, and pristine.) It has one of the best locations in town, at the end of...
