Located in a picturesque setting on a small bay east of Nice, the hotel is a great base for day trips all along the Côte d'Azur by car or train. The hotel sits on the waterfront near excellent restaurants some of which feature live entertainment. The sidewalk dining is great for people watching and enjoying the Mediterranean character of the... More

The views are second to none! The stay couldn't possibly be any better. The staff are very attentive, kind and fun!! Will be back there again! The breakfast was superb and the service was excellent. The staff really was top notch from the reception to the maid service and the Wine Pier. Can't say enough!!

We hired the hotel yacht for a half a day, and the skipper was very professional , it was a highlight of our 4 week stay on France. We had... More

Everyone was exceptionally kind, from the accommodating reception to the bar staff that made fresh mint tea when I wasn't feeling well. I saw a VERY slightly larger room on the 1st (American 2nd) floor, but preferred (and chose) the (almost imperceptibly) smaller (and cheaper!) room ("Comfort"?) on the 5th (I believe) floor, which had a much bigger view of...

We have just returned from celebrating our wedding anniversary at Hotel Welcome. I had spent some time identifying a suitable destination on the Cote d'Azur that would be charming, reasonably buzzy, but not as developed as Nice or as intense as St.Tropez. Villefranche-sur-Mer seemed promising and the Trip Advisor reviews of Hotel Welcome persuaded us it would be the right... More

Villefranche has to be one of the most stunning places in Europe. The quays along the bay are dotted with small restaurants, quaint shops and there is a small beach that is arguably one of the best maintained. when the sun is shining, there is literally nothing like it. We stayed at the Welcome Hotel, well positioned on the quays... More

Stunning views from this historic, waterfront hotel. Our corner room 42 was quiet, had 2 balconies, and while small wasn't tiny. The well equipped bathroom was tiny and had great towels. While the room size and decor - trying to maintain the history of the space? - were not quite up to the standard for the price charged, it was... More

I've known Villefranche for many years and finally had the pleasure of staying in this hotel. Whilst other reviewers points are correct- it would have been nice to have coffee making facilities in the rooms, everything else was wonderful. The room was very comfy and tastefully decorated. We had a room with a balcony facing the harbour which was glorious... More

We used Trip Advisor and booked a four day stay at this great location. This was a Birthday celebration for my daughter from and with ME!! The view was ideal!! Although on the small side, our corner room was clean and welcoming. Staff was wonderful. There is no other place to stay when you are in this area!! Spring for... More
