But I did go many times in the evening for some snacks and hot chocolate. I wish I had booked this hotel before my travels. I will make sure to book next time it's in a perfect location and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The bar and lounge areas were very clean and on the whole the hotel... More

We made a point to get off the boat to eat breakfast in France. There were many restaurants but few open this early for breakfast. So we decided on the hotel and were glad we did. Our family enjoyed a quiet breakfast, but delicious! Then we left for the day to visit other nearby cities, before heading back to our... More

This engaging hotel is in the most beautiful location in the still unspoilt Villefranche. As so many of the resorts have lost their character Villefranche and the Hotel Welcome remain as they did during my first visit in the late 70's! The staff are wonderful, helpful and accommodating. The rooms are beautiful, immaculate and understated, the beds comfortable, but I... More

It's not cheap, but if you love Côte d'Azur you simply have to try this. Unforgettable, still sympathetic and not posh in any way. Excellent service, tasteful furnishings and above all, an unforgettable view in the morning over the bay. We'll be back and will recommend this to all our friends.

My second visit. Beautiful location right at the water's edge. Wonderful staff who go out of their way to help without being intrusive. Excellent breakfast. Villefranche is relatively unspoilt and the ideal spot for those who want a quiet break on the Cote d'Azur away from night clubs and neon lights. My only complaint is that on this visit I... More

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights in August. Firstly, Villefranche is an ideal place to spend a few nights on the Côte d'Azur. Picture postcard bay/ harbour, right at a train station, small sandy beach with crystal clear water, and a handful of restaurants and cafes to try out. The staff at Welcome were absolutely top class. So... More

Coffee was fab and well priced, 8 euro for 2 cups, lovely waitress and most amazing uninterrupted view of harbour... Bliss.... Went back this evening for 2 vodka/ tonics... It came with... More
