The location of this hotel is perfect. Right on the water below the old town. The staff could not be friendlier and more helpful. The breakfast is a little expensive but very good. Sitting in the breakfast room/wine bar is a great place to people watch. The only draw back is the size of the room. We had a superior... More

Having been recommended to this hotel right on the sea front at Villefranche we stayed for four nights from 24th March. Well managed with a real desire to please and in perfect English. Everything was good with very friendly and efficient service.Will go back soon.

My husband and I had such a great stay at Welcome hotel. Room was great on the 5th floor facing the sea. Bed and room was comfortable and very clean. The reception team was very attentive and so helpful with everything, they made our stay that much better. If you're coming to Villefranche you have to stay here!

Two couples callled for a quiet after dinner drink at 22.50pm. While serving another couple the barman told us he was finished serving for the evening. We left feeling like intruders and had our nightcap nearby.

We saw Villefranche for the first time from the train on the way back from Italy 3 years ago. The Welcome hotel ticked all the right boxes for a visit, sea views, a balcony, situated almost on the waters edge. Service has been excellent with friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast in the conservatory or even one day outside was good... More

My husband and I watched the movie Ronin again the other night and spotted the Hotel Welcome in Villefranche-sur-Mer. Despite this being one of my husband's favourite movies we hadn't noticed the lovely Hotel Welcome before, and this has prompted me to finally get around to reviewing this charming little hotel. We visited the French Riviera in June 2013 for... More

Nestled at the bottom of the hill and right on the water’s edge, the Hotel Welcome couldn’t be in a more romantic setting. This four-star hotel is a serious contender for five stars in terms of service, friendly staff, location, rooms, view….. All rooms have balconies and a view of the lovely bay. We splurged on the newly renovated junior... More

We've spent 30 years of summers in the South of France. In the '80's our love of the place meant that we slept at campsites and ate at fine restaurants, in the '90s we had kids so we stayed at self catering villas and apartments. However, Villefranche and the sight of the salmon pink Hotel Welcome against an azure sky... More

Villefranche is a charming little town with great walks food and proximity to the French Riviera. Just watch Bedtime Story with David Niven and Marlon Brando later rebranded as Dirty Rotten Scoundrels with Steve Martin and Michael Caine! The Hotel Welcome, being on the water captures all this magic and itself was featured in one of the James Bond movies,... More
