      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Welcome Villefranche-sur-Mer

      A bright, delightful stay

      from

      We recently spent 4 nights at Hotel Welcome and had a delightful time. The location is lovely, right on the harbor, and our room (as most appeared to) had a nice little terrace just large enough for the 2 of us to sit out and enjoy the harbor scene. The room was good-sized and very nicely updated with a sparkling tiled bath. There is a long string of restaurants facing the harbor just steps away. Villefranche was a nice quiet base for exploring other parts of the Cote d'Azur.

      Fantastic location, friendly hotel staff and great value for money!

      from

      Stayed in this wonderful hotel over the Easter holiday 2004. We were welcomed by friendly and helpful staff. Location and the views are the best features of this hotel. Rooms are in good shape and well maintained. There is a large selection of execllent restaurants nearby (walking distance) and short drives to Monaco and Nice.

      Nice room, great room!

      from

      We loved the time we spent at this hotel. We had a room on the 2nd floor overlooking the water, so the view was incredible. We had breakfast there every morning, and found the food choices to be better than those at our other hotels in France. A glass of wine at sunset in the front room was a great way to start every night! I would definitely stay here again, and found it a better vacation destination than Nice.

      Best Place on the Riviera

      from

      We were breathless when we opened the windows of our room..stunning views of the harbor, the Citadel. Excellent and friendly staff...most accommodating. Start the day with breakfast delivered to your room....cafe and croissants on the balcony overlooking the bay...best way to start the day. Several wonderful sidewalk cafes right outside the front door of the hotel. And the restaurant (St. Pierre) adjacent to the hotel served one of the best meals I've ever had. I go to France every 6 weeks for my business, and I never tire of stopping by the Hotel Welcome for a visit. HIGHLY recommended.

      Fantastic

      from

      Fantastic hotel in a beautiful setting.Rooms aren't great , but that really doesn't matter if you have a sea view.Great selection of restaurants on the harbour.

      A Little Gem

      from

      We stayed at the Welcome this Christmas and New Year. Prior to our visit the hotel staff emailed us with information and couldnt have been more helpful. On arrival we found that the hotel is situated in a lovely position, Villefranche bay is delightful and we were well looked after by all the staff. The rooms are comfortable and the hotel wine bar on the quay is a great place to unwind after spending the day exploring the Riviera. Fantastic.

      Wonderful

      from

      After staying in Eze (an old favourite) we ventured down to Villefranche for a day or two intending to move on to Nice. Discovered the Hotel Welcome and stayed the rest of the holiday! A family hotel for 50 years, our family of 4 could not have wished for more. Brilliant location, excellent staff, and even though the 6th floor rooms are not the world's best (a bit cramped and hot), the rest of the hotel was fantastic. Try and get the corner room on 5th floor! Michael Douglas/Kathleen Turner enjoyed this property, so will you! Restaurants nearby are terrific (a little expensive, but hey, you're in France!).

      Definitely a drawcard that will bring us back. Email me if you need convincing! Tony.

      What a Welcome at the WELCOME!

      from

      Breathtaking views over the Riviera's most picturesque harbour; highly professional and nothing-is-too-much-trouble English-speaking staff; comfortable rooms ( most with terraces over the quay; plus an appetising variety of quayside restaurants withing staggering distance, make this a wonderful experience. Americans still make up a high percentage of the guests -- this place has been a favourite since Errol Flynn parked his yacht outside -- but everyone is, as the name suggests, made very WELCOME.

      Definitely a Welcome!

      from

      My wife and I stayed at the Welcome the week before 9/11. We had a corner room on the fifth(?) floor. Arriving late at nigth, we could only see lights all along the waterfront which were truly spectacular. However, when we arose in the daylight the next morning, all we could do was cry, the scene was so incredibly beautiful!!! I have a co-worker who also stayed at the Welcome and loved it as well. The hardest part seems to be finding the right road to get there and having to pay for parking. However, on our recommendation, a friend stayed there and had a small room that did not have the view and was not as exciting. So, you need to be sure what kind of room and what your view is going to be. But there is no question: we would go back in heartbeat!!

      Hotel Unwelcome!

      from

      Even though we had made reservations months in advance, my husband and I were shown to a garret room on the 6th floor with no elevator access. The ceiling height in the hallway and into the miniscule toilet room were sufficient only if you were under 4 foot 8 inches.

      Air-conditioning did not work upon arrival (the repair person told us he had been having problems with the unit while the front desk said the maid just "forgot to turn it on"). Front desk staff was surley. It is supposedly a 3 star hotel, however, the service and accommodations in no way lived up to the rating. All in all, a miserable hotel experience.

That's nice if you don't have anywhere to go but a problem if you do. Anyway we had a lovely lunch then headed down the beach to the stairs that go up to Cap Ferrat. We are heading to Beaulieu to find the SuperU market to buy some food for the apartment. With help from a local woman we found it after a ...
