TravelPod Member ReviewsWindsor Hotel Funchal
We stayed in a 4* Windsor Hotel, located in the center of Funchal. That was the only advantage about the hotel :) the hotel is nothing like 4*, maybe it was 15 years ago, but certainly not today. Yes, i did check reviews and photos before booking, but on arrival it is nothing like in a photo. However, that did not spoil our holiday. As long as I have a bed to sleep, toilet and shower, I am happy. The breakfast was included, but we only tried it once. There are many better places to have your breakfast for few Euro.

We came back to a Spanish night in the restaurant and the food was better and very enjoyable. Then into the Astor Lounge for a Mediterranean Quiz. We were only allowed a team of four so we palled up with Judy and Roger. We didn’t win but it was fun trying. It had been good to walk on dry land again and Funchal was ...
... the various groups waiting for the coach. It was easy to spot our fellow passengers; all were over 70 and had large amounts of luggage. We were told we were on Coach 3 and it would come about 9-30. 15 minutes later she was back with the news that the bus was delayed and it would now be 10am but she reassured us that the ship knew about the delay and would not leave without us.
After what seemed an interminable time we were loaded on to the 3 buses and set off for Tilbury. This ...

We had the Captain Cocktail Party to look forward to and as I was getting ready for this noticed that the earrings I wanted to wear were missing, along with 1 other ear ring. We searched high and low and ...
