We stayed 3 nights in the top floor cabin room. The view from the private terraces was stunning and the room was very quirky. The staff were excellent. Super helpful and great restaurant suggestions each night. Private garage car parking was expensive but well worth it. The only thing I would improve was the air con in our room could... More

Our first visit to the Welcome was over forty years ago and even though we've only been back four times it really hasn't changed. Obviously it's kept up with the times but the gentile, friendly atmosphere is still the same. The family owners and the staff, some long term, have kept true to this seaside gem of a hotel. It's...

We stayed for 2 nights for my husband's birthday and things could not have been more perfect. Fantastic location, excellent service and an all round special time. The staff were so helpful on our last day - thank you! We will definitely be back to visit your beautiful hotel in such a special little town.

Stayed as family in two rooms. Beautifully decorated, although a little smaller than they seem in the photographs. Good air con and comfortable beds. Super staff, really nice and keen to help without being pushy. Can be quite noisy with local music and singing in late evening but rooms have good double glazing! Rail station is 500 m but there...

This hotel is very nice. It over looks the water. The hotel is a little old but very nice. It is super hard to have cars around because there is no parking. So when we arrived we had to go through the busy street. They need to have a proper entrance. Over all it is a little expensive but the... More

The room was lovely. It had an antique feel to it without feeling dated. The balcony was by far the most wonderful part of the room. Whether you had coffee in the morning or rose at night, it was a beautiful setting. I adored the flags assigned to each room, lightly blowing in the wind. The service was wonderful -... More

With my friends and my husband, we enjoy regularly going for a brunch at the welcome hotel. We have an exclusive experience as there are only a few tables on the deck and the staff is extremely friendly which is very appreciable. And indeed we have a beautiful view and are located in the old town of Villefranche! It's just... More

Hotel Welcome is a lovely hotel right on the water in Villefranche - away from the hustle and bustle of Nice. Spacious, clean and beautifully appointed with wonderful friendly and helpful staff. We loved it! A little pricey but the balcony was well worth it and the location was very convenient. Would definitely stay there again.

My husband and I have stayed in this magical and historic hotel almost every year since we first visited Villefranche-sur-Mer in 2001. Its location is charming and picturesque, right on the port with lovely views of the sea, the boats, the Citadel, and surrounding landscapes and buildings. Restaurants, shops, parks, the train station, beach, marina, and more are just a... More
