We liked this hotel. The view was beautiful. It was close to easy transportation to Nice and Monaco. Also the old town, sights and beach were within easy walking distance. It was laso very pleasant to sit outside the hotel in the courtyard.

I stayed here two nights with my husband and daughter. We had a beautiful view from our balcony although the room was quite small even though we had a suite. The traffic noise from the road next to the hotel can be quite loud at night. The hotel staff was very helpful we were five hours early to check in due to our flight being so early in the morning and they still allowed us into our room. Free gated private parking was very convenient. The residence's lobby is not manned 24 hours a day so if you need something after 7 PM you're not going to be able to get it from them. Overall this hotel was fine for our first trip to Nice. If you're traveling on a budget and are only staying there a couple of nights it is worth it.

Mostly positive experience travelling with our six-month-old baby for his first holiday.
With the exception of one very surly member of the bar/breakfast team, all staff encountered were extremely friendly and helpful. Overall, the hotel is definitely child-friendly - a cot was provided for our room, buggy storage at reception was offered, etc. It's worth noting however that the location is not hugely advantageous if you have a small baby - everything in Villefranche is really only accessible via steep staircases or along bumpy/cobbled and sometimes disappearing pavements! Otherwise, the location is amazing with all the town's main sites, best restaurants, amenities as well as the bus-stop and railway station to travel elsewhere a very short distance away.
Noise levels were generally family-friendly other than Friday/Saturday nights when live music in the bar definitely permeated our windows and deprived us of sleep. If possible, ask to be nearer the Reception end than the bar end to minimise this.
No score is offered for value for money but the cost of the room seemed excessive for the facilities provided - especially given that breakfast was not included. 2/5 on that front - perhaps because there seemed to be a big yachting event happening and those guys are used to paying extortionate fees for everything?
Room cleanliness was generally good but not 5/5 due to the rather disconcerting pair of (used?) male undergarments we found on the floor next to the bed!

Booked through Expedia, tried to change the booking with the hotel and told to perform this via Expedia which I did, all ok.
On arriving at the hotel told I had a problem with my booking; however provided the Expedia communications and received a 64 Euro credit.
The way the staff at the hotel spoke to me was very rude.
