“The charm of Provence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2011

The Marcellin is a small - about 10 rooms - privately operated hotel a short walk up the hill from Beaulieu rail station, on a corner in a quiet part of town. Central Beaulieu with its many restaurants is less than five minutes by foot; the casino and beach front maybe five minutes more.

There was not a lot of space left after the queen-size bed was accommodated in our room but a window nook and a couple of other niches, plus a huge bath-room, made up for it. Everything was perfectly clean and the room itself decked out in the gorgeous, happy colours and patterns of Provence.

Breakfast was served in an antique-filled corner room which doubles as the owner's office and lounge. It's all very cosy and intimate: a beautiful little gem of a hotel to which I would happily return should I have the chance.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2011

We have just returned from a weeks stay in the Hotel Marcellin and can only say we were absolutely delighted with it. It's exceptionally good value for money with our bedroom being very pleasantly decorated and also having a large bathroom which was spotlessly clean. The photographs on the hotel's website are a very accurate reflection of the rooms. The position of the hotel is perfect, a five minute walk to Beaulieu train station with bus stops in both the Nice and Monaco directions within a couple of minutes walk.The main beach in Beaulieu is also only a five minute walk down the hill. The proprieters of the hotel were also very nice, exceptionally helpful and very pleasant without being in your face. I will definitely be booking a 2 week stay here next year.

Lovely, 2 star, modernised old-style French hotel. Very reasonably priced for the Riviera. Welcoming owners and spotlessly clean rooms. We asked for, and received, a biggish, quiet room, and stayed for 6 nights. Some other rooms looked compact but would suit single travellers or those overnighting.

Traditional French breakfast--we took it for convenience but you might prefer local bars.

Parking can be a problem. It is free on local side streets but you have to be patient and grab a place when one becomes vacant. The advantage, once parked, is that you can use the local bus (across the street) and train service (station about 5 mins walk) to all local resorts such as Nice, Menton, Monaco and Villefranche.

Highly recommended but be prepared for a little hassle when parking.(there is no hotel car park). Beaulieu is a gem with excellent restaurants at all prices. Would certainly stay again.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2010

We stayed for a bank holiday weekend. The rooms were simple, spotless and spacious. The couple that run the hotel work very hard to keep the guests happy. The location is good just behind the town. breakfast is simple (croissants and coffee) and needs pre-booking the evening before. This is to ensure the owners pick up enough fresh supplies from the boulangerie in the Morning. If you are after somewhere traditional to stay on the Riviera I would certainly recommend the Marcellin you can pay a lot more for a lot less in this part of the world.

My sister and I stayed at the Marcellin (we actually were renting an apartment which was not available until the day after our arrival) and were delighted. Mr. Henri, the owner/host, was charming and helpful and the hotel is quiet and well-situated Beaulieu. The only meal offered is breakfast which was delicious -- excellent coffee, juice, breads and condiments. The room was excellent -- a really good bed, well appointed, immaculate bathroom and comfortable and pretty furnishings. It is also an excellent value. Highly recommended.
