I booked for a party of 10 to stay in La Regence in early June for 6 nights. We found it very welcoming, well situated and reasonably priced for that part of France. It is situated on a quite busy road - the double glazed windows minimises the traffic noise - and it is only a short walk to the... More

I visited La Regence in October. I had to stay in Villefranche only for 1 night so I decided for the cheaper solution. People are warm and welcoming. The place is very easy to find, close to the center of the town and to the bus stop for going to Nice. The building and the rooms are nice, comfortable and... More

Betty and Thierry are welcoming and friendly, and the hotel's Chez Betty bar is an institution. The center of local social life in Villefranche, it attracts a lively and sometimes eccentric crowd of friendly residents. The rooms are tidy and clean and a good budget value in an area with steep prices.

I stayed for 2 nights at the end of September 2011. The host Thierry is fantastic, as is the beautiful Betty. Room was clean and staff were friendly and welcoming. No airconditioner but there was a ceiling fan which was more than enough. Had a good look around all of the accommodation options and this was by far the best... More

Excellent small hotel in a good location. It is a family-run botel and it is very good value for this area close to Nice and Monaco. We have stayed here many times and never have been disappointed.

It's only a short walk to the Port and the beach. Rooms are basic but very clean and the hosts are lovely & very helpful. Great value for... More

A wonderful little hotel with very clean and bright rooms. The location can't be beat, very close to Nice and other little towns towards Monaco. Within short walking distance to the Old Port of Villefranche and the beach. The price is excellent for the area. Thierry and his staff were extremely helpful and friendly, from the reservation to the departure... More

This is a great, small hotel located close to the water and old town Nice. Very friendly staff who enjoy making your stay a great one and full of knowledge of the surrounding area. We stayed in many small hotels like in this "category" during our time in Europe and this is one of the best! Rooms are very aesthetically... More
