This hotel is located near the highway and is within easy commute both to the shore and the mountains. It is situated in a lovely ,quiet location and the buffet breakfast is very nice indeed. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

the hotel is a standard average confort. Missing particular charme; it is ok to spend max 1 -2 night if engaged with company or affairs in the local area. The Car is necessary to move in the evening. suggested nice or antibes

Booked this hotel on Expedia for Antibes. Little did I know, the hotel was so far away from the city. We were there for two nights so wasn't insurmountable, but no dinner served, bus to and from Antibes was difficult, and the place served no dinner. You'll most likely need a car if staying here.

Stayed a week with the family and thoroughly enjoyed it. There's plenty of parking places, friendly staff, lovely pool and good food. It's set up on the hills north of Antibes - approximately a seven mile drive. It's sizable enough to have decent amenities but not too big to feel swamped. For us, it was just right with a bit...

First of all I do not recommend this hotel, especially not for families with children. It is in the middle of nowhere, ovepriced and not worthy 4 stars. - The rooms are small, almost tiny (we're a family of 2 adult and 2 children). - Doors squeeking loudly and fastens in the floor (very hard to open, not possible for...

We stayed 3 nights visiting Nice, Cannes and surrounding areas. The hotel is located in a quiet area. The room was good in size and comfortable. The breakfast and pool were good. The staff was friendly and helpful. We would stay here again.

Recently had two separate stays at the Novotel Sophia Antipolis while travelling on Business. The location is good in Sophia Antipolis - as good as a location in Sophia can be. It's pretty far from everything, so you definitely need a car. But with a car you reach all offices in the area within minutes and you can of course... More

Sophia Antipolis is an area of high tech industry, located in a wooded area above Antibes, so not an obvious place to pick for a holiday hotel. The businesses are generally low rise offices well spaced out amongst the trees. The advantage is that the hotels offer a reasonably priced alternative to staying in Antibes or Juan les Pins. At...
