I read many review of this hotel before booking for a weekend getaway with my boyfriend, and noticed that several reviews mentioned finding the staff to be unfriendly. This could not have been farther from my experience.
For the entire duration of our stay, every single staff member was very friendly to us -- they were welcoming and made us feel at home, were helpful with giving us the bus and train schedules and helping us plan some excursions, and added a very positive dimension to our visit.
The room was charming (designed to resemble a boat), had views of the bay, a balcony with two chairs and a table, and was very clean and very comfortable.
The location in Villefranche we found convenient because it was near the train station, and near restaurants.
Instead of the 18euro / person hotel breakfast, we walked 3 minutes to a charming café behind the hotel (les Palmiers, 3 Place Amélie Pollonais) where we enjoyed a delicious and inexpensive breakfast with the locals.
Our favorite dinners were at Ristorante Pizzeria Marechiaro, where we enjoyed practicing our Italian with Italian waitstaff, and La Grignotière, where we enjoyed a romantic evening on our last night with delicious fish and seafood.
Would definitely return and stay in the hotel again.More
