It is like a homely heritage hotel. Our room was on the second level and it was spacious, with a view to the mountains. We liked the little table in the room that allowed us to chill out and have a snack. We were also pleasantly surprised to see the room tidied and with a piece of chocolate left for us when we came back after a walk around town! (it was only a few hours ago that we checked in!)
Bathroom was spacious and clean too.
The hosts are a jovial elderly couple, and Danielle was so enthusiastic to have us here that she came down immediately to pick up my luggage! A very kind gesture which I have to refuse! (We couldn't bear to make her carry our heavy luggage though!)
The hotel is well placed near to the bus station, about 5-7 min walk away (bus gets us to St Paul de Vence) and there were small cafes around for a breakfast or lunch. As for dinner, we chose to have it at the hotel after seeing great reviews on Tripadvisor. We told Danielle that we wanted roast chicken for dinner about 2hrs in advance so she could prepare it. It was beautifully roasted by Danielle in the restaurant & the chicken was juicy and tender. Definitely worth a try!
It is not a luxurious place, but definitely recommend for someone who enjoys a homely welcome and who likes to experience the heritage of Vence!
