We had 3 brilliant weeks at The Gorgulho in January and made many new friends, most of whom we hope to meet in this hotel again in 2011. The rooms were cleaned every day by happy smiling staff. The food was excellent. The peace and quiet was priceless! Bear in mind this not a 5 star hotel but a damn...

My parents have stayed in this hotel 4 years running - and I decided to spend some time with them this year and stayed with them in this hotel. OK- the hotel may look a bit dated- however excellent value for money. Many of the staff have worked at the hotel for many years and they make the guests feel...

Spent 2 weeks here November/December. The hotel is a bit tired but everything worked and was clean. You wouldn't expect a 5 star hotel when you are paying 3 star prices. Our room was spotless, linen changed frequently, the bathroom was modern with plenty of hot water, beds firm but comfortable, kitchen tiny but adequate ( we brought our own...

This is definitely the ugliest building in Funchal. However, if you are on a budget, then this is not a bad stay. The location is very good and the rooms are clean. We just had breakfast and one evening meal, and the food seemed very good. The linen service is excellent and staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel really...

The general condition of the room was fair. The paintwork was chipped, tired and faded. the balcony was a dismal solid grey concrete monstrosity with louvre doors that were badly chipped, and had not seen fresh paint for at least 5 years, they were absolutely awful. The kitchen was ancient with a work surface that was blistered, cut through and...

We arrived at the hotel not expecting too much from the hotel, having read previous reviews but hotel far exceeded our expectations. Yes the outside is a bit dated but if it was painted like the others then you wouldn't know it is one of the older hotels in this area. You understand why they haven't painted it, as it...

This was our third stay at the Gorgulho. Other reviewers have noted the tired appearance of the exterior, which is true, but inside it is clean and comfortable. Very helpful staff. Great location, close to the bus stop, supermarket, Lido and park and several restaurants. There is also a relaible (not Timeshare!) Info Centre over the road, under the Monumental...

This was our third year at the Gorgulho and we would not stay anywhere else in Funchal, even though it is one of the ugliest buildings on the island! Staff friendly. Breakfast good. Ideal location. Our room was large with a beautiful sea view. We love to walk during the day and dine out at night and this hotel is...
