Great hotel with bar opening onto the main road running through Villefranche. Used by the locals and a great place to watch the world go by! Thierry, the manager is friendly and welcoming, and is easy with speaking English. Rooms are quite basic, but very reasonably priced, comfortable and clean. You have to be prepared for the noise from the...

Warm and welcoming, great location, very clean rooms! My sister and I enjoyed a very pleasant stay here. The staff are super friendly and spoke some English (because my French is not very good). I highly recommend this cozy hotel. Merveilleuse!! Très bien situé , très propre, personnel très sympathique.

I stayed at "La Regence" hotel also known as Chez Betty last October. I am planning to return in the next month. The location is perfect for visiting the South of France. The views are breath taking and the proprietors really care about you and your stay. I love the ambience and the charm of this little gem. Staying here...

Right in the centre of Villefranche you can enjoy a drink in the large bar (didn't stay at this place for accommodation), great friendly service. Nicely displayed interior with overseas currencies/notes etc displayed on the walls from all over the world, English not a problem. About a 10 minute walk to the beaches and Train station, Monte Carlo 20 minute...

I have stayed at La Regence (known locally as Chez Betty) before and return as I love the local personality, the easy accessibility to the Nice to Menton #100 bus and access to restaurants and promenade. A few years ago the guest rooms were all renovated in grey and white with blue accents...and very comfortable. This year the bar on...

We liked the price, the room, and the bar below the hotel. It was a cozy room but it faced the street. For a road that hadn't seemed loud during the day, it made up for it at night. The cars honked, trucks rattled, and engines revved seemingly all night. The next day we looked for ear plugs but couldn't...

Always a warm welcome at Betty's Bar. A family run hotel that is perfect for the seasoned traveller. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the bar is a friendly place to sit and chill out. and you are in a good place to travel out to the attractions of the French Riviera.

Basil Fawlty has nothing on her. To be clear this is a pension, not a hotel. You check in at the bar while the barmaid is serving beer and coffee to customers. Quite garrulous, no English at all and no concession to non-French speaker I asked for an iron + ironing board, a service offered by the “hotel” she then...
