“Great hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

We spent two nights at this small hotel in late June. The rooms are big, clean and have a fantastic view of St Paul de Vence. Beds are very comfortable and it' s absolutely quiet so you can have a good night's sleep. The couple who owned the hotel were very nice and friendly and served a superb breakfast every morning. The pool felt great after hot days in the sun. When we were there the guest were couples, so there were no screaming children in the pool! This is one of the best small hotels we have ever stayed in.

Room Tip: Choose one with a balcony. They have the view!

We spent the last night of our Anniversary trip at the Hotel Marc-Hely. Excellent accommodations in a nice, quiet setting. One of the most comfortable hotel beds ever! Good A/C, modern bath with great shower/water pressure. The rooms have a balcony with table and chairs, gorgeous views to St. Paul de Vence, and surrounding hills. Very nice pool with chaise lounges and attractive landscaping.

We opted for the morning breakfast and ate on the outside patio, and would recommend it, especially if you're catching a flight, as we were. Great coffee, delicious baguettes, croissants, juice and more. The Nice airport was an easy 15 minute drive from the hotel (a Sunday morning)
Also, the hotel is close to town and there are a number of good restaurants for dinner.

The owners, Christel and Adrien are wonderful!

Room Tip: There is no tip - because all the rooms are superb at this property.

This 3-star-family-hotel is very cosy, clean rooms with a balcony and a view to the village of Saint Paul, nice pool in a small garden, 15 min from Nice airport as well as from Cannes. We only stayed for 1 night on our way back from Var, but will surely come again. Enjoyed the dinner in St Paul and breakfast in the hotel garden. Nothing too much and nothing lacking.

View to Saint Paul de Vence directly from the balcony -priceless, rooms - excellent bed and very nice furniture, bathrooms very nice, pool just about right, garden with small terace 4 breakfast extremly nice and cossy. It a place u can relax and enjoy the view quietly, very close to Nice, St Paul (it's a must to visit both at daylight but also during the evening). Owners are living there also, they are friendly and warmfully, they gave all information from the beggining about all restaurants nearby (opening & closing hours) places of interest and other very usefull info. I would definetly recommend this hotel to all interested..

Spent 2 nights in July 2012 revisiting this lovely hotel, the first time since the current owners took over. The location is fantastic with great views towards Vence and Haut du Cagnes. Our room was comfortable, but buried in the basement of the building, so we did not get the great views from our bedroom window that one can see from the other floors. The host were absolutely charming and could not have been more helpful. The pool area was immaculate with adequate loungers. The breakfasts were very good indeed. Although not buffet style but served individually, there were great touches such as the small bowl of fraise-de-bois served with the excellent selection of whole-meal and white bread baguettes, croissants and pain au chocolat. Their restaurant recommendations were also excellent.

Room Tip: Ask for an upper floor to appreciate the views

Marc-Hely is a well run hotel that gives an excellent value. We were there for our engagement and found it incredibly romantic. It is quiet, new, clean and very comfortable. The rooms have a spectacular and stunning view of St. Paul de Vence and the mountains.Adrian and his wife as host and hostess are as good as they come. You should plan on having a car (parking is no problem). The location is actually quite central as well: Grasse, Gourdon, St. Paul de Vence, Nice and the rest of Cote D'azur are all less than an hour away. We will be back to south France one day, and if Adrian is still running the show, plan to stay there again.

Room Tip: We choose a 2nd story unit to get a "higher" view.

Good points:

1.) Extremely comfortable king sized bed. This was probably the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in, in a hotel.
2.) large bedroom with TV, tea and coffee making facilities, seperate bathroom and toilet.
3.) the bathroom had a large basin area and bath and shower. Lots of nice toiletries too.
4.) Stunning views of the scenery from balcony.
5.) balcony area with table and chairs.
6.) external shutters provided a black out in bedroom for a great nights sleep.
7.) friendly and helpful reception staff who speak excellent English
8.) Great location - within 10 miles of the centre of Nice and only 15 to the airport.
9.) La Colle sur Loup is a lovely little area close to the centre of Nice with a very pretty and quaint town centre and lots of nice restaurants.
10.) room was spotlessly clean and had a new and fresh look and feel to it.

Bad points:

1.) The pool was small so not really suitable for swimming but still enjoyable to cool off in on a hot day and enjoy the scenery.
