3 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

We stayed at this hotel for four days during June 2015. The hotel is situated very close to the Monte Carlo road. Rather than being luxurious it is pragmatically furnished and makes every effort to ensure full use of its assets. Villefranche-sur-Mer is a town that is built on a virtual cliff face. Consequently there are many steps to negotiate... More

We flew into Nice and spent our first couple of days here at the Hotel La Fiancee du Pirate. It's convenient location on the Middle Corniche close to Nice, Eze, and Monaco makes it a perfect (and economical) base for exploring the French Rivera. We stayed in the family cabin located right by the pool - the beds were super... More

Pleasant, clean and family friendly, Pirate is a good choice outside of both Nice and Monaco. While not "5 star", which isn't what we want anyway, the staff is happy and helpful. With a pool, eating patio and chairs to lounge on outside your room, we used it as a home base for a little respite from out busy trip.... More

We have just returned from a five day stay at the hotel. Eric and Laurence are an absolute dream. They are extremely hospitable and nothing is too much trouble. The hotel is very clean and tidy and it was lovely staying somewhere that didn't entail rushing down for sunbeds first thing in the morning. Breakfast was fantastic and set us... More

We had a wonderful experience at La Fiancee du Pirate. Quite, clean, wonderful beds, great service and an exceptional breakfast. Wonderful views from the upper rooms. A nice pool. Our only regret is we didn't stay longer.

We could not have chosen a better hotel for the base for our Riviera visit. Eric and Laurence (owners) were cheery and most welcoming. Aurelia (receptionist) was very helpful and friendly. The hotel is located next to bus stops and we were able to get to Eze and Nice without driving. Parking is provided. The room was spacious, clean and... More

We stayed here for a week in April '15 and enjoyed it very much. Eric, the owner, and his charming assistant Aurelia, were constantly there to meet your requests and needs. The rooms are clean and well appointed for the price and include TV with BBC world, CNN and Eurosport. Located above the town on the higher of the two... More

As a fairly seasoned traveller, I find hotels tend to fit into predictable categories. Pleasantly individual or exceptional ones, however, are more rarely encountered and therefore always worthy of special comment. Definitely in this latter category is the quaintly named 'La Fiancée du Pirate' in the French Cote d'Azure port of Villefranche sur Mer, which nestles beautifully between Nice and... More

This fine hotel on a main road out of Nice in Villefranche was well kept, clean and inviting with a beautiful view of the bay. The coupled who owned and ran it were very friendly, helpful, and pleasant as was their night staff. Price was reasonable as was the price for the quite adequate breakfast that included crepes. Would definitely... More

We had a great time at this very friendly hotel. It's in Col de Villefranche - so on the road that runs around Villefranche itself, at the top of the hill overlooking the bay. Great views. This is a pretty expensive part of the world so to find a reasonably priced hotel, run by lovely people, in such a great... More
