Reviewed hotels in villefranche and this one seemed a good price with good rating. On arrival the staff were friendly and courteous and made you feel immediately at home. The room we had was on the front and we could see cap ferret and the cruise liners that had stopped by. The room was quite chic and very clean, always... More

Very helpful and friendly staff, a family business. The room was nice and a good bed (we chose a quiet room without view but away from the busy street). A 10 minute walk to the beach and restaurants. We liked that it was a bit away from the other hotels, made it more relaxed and locals hung out at the... More

Great value for money - a charming place to stay in a beautiful town. Villefranche was the highlight of the French Riviera and La Regence was a great place to stay to experience it. Simple, no fuss, clean rooms and nice people. Handy bar/cafe downstairs with very friendly staff and a great atmosphere. Would definitely stay again, hopefully we will... More

We really enjoyed our stay an the La Regence hotel. Hotel brings out real french atmosphere and the staff/ owners are more than pleasant and helpful! In our point of view, its one of the most beuatiful regions in the area! All the best to the hotel and its staff!

Nice hotel with clean rooms, good sized bathroom and nicely decorated. The location is really good, just outside the old town of Villefranche and very close to the bus stop to both Nice and Monaco. The service was great and Thierry was very helpful throughout our stay, making some phone calls for us when a French speaker was required (thanks... More

The rooms in this hotel are recently refurbished, especially our bathroom looked very good and was comfortable. The hotel has a nice village atmosphere to it. The staff didn't speak much English but were very friendly and welcoming. The hotel also has a nice cafe on the ground floor where you can get breakfast in the morning. It is located... More

We stayed here for two nights after one week in Nice. When we saw the location we thought we had made a mistake. The twin beds room on the top floor was small but beautiful with a lovely view of the sea and cruise ships. Thierry and Betty were wonderful hosts and we wish we could have stayed longer. With...

Super nice people, easy going, good size clean rooms, & an easy walk to everything in VF. Great lounge/bar in the front too, parking really close if need be, ATMs and a cute little store/market just steps away. (FYI the double rooms have the best views).

After arriving at Villefranche sur Mer late one night and lugging our heavy bags up hundreds of stairs from the railway station and feeling stressed and tired, we arrived at Chez Betty to be greeted by the delightful Betty. We immediately felt at home and relaxed. Chez Betty is well located, comfortable, clean and run by a gorgeous family. I... More

My hotel room and en suite were both freshly decorated and very pleasant, with an excellent air conditioning unit which kept the room nice and cool. Betty, Thierry and the whole family team were warm and welcoming. It was always lovely to start the day with a little chat with them. The bar noise was unobtrusive - even during a... More
