“Adorable little hotel with charming hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

We were here towards the end of the season and it was by far the best place we stayed in the area. We were in the courtyard and although the room was small, it was delightful and spotless. The service was attentive and the breakfast delicious. Tommy the dog is very sweet (I'm not usually a fan) and it's hard to ignore those pleading eyes but you don't feed him because it's bad for him. We enjoyed the wine aperitif at our table in the courtyard before going out to eat the best ever pizza of my life (practically) next door (recommended by the host). Also enjoyed the classical, jazz etc music emanating from the private quarters at breakfast including the Puppini Sisters. My partner surprised me with one of their albums as a Christmas present!

La Jabotte was a quaint and cozy hotel. The patio area was artistic and charming, however no drinking or eating was allowed in the patio area. This rule seemed excessive. Breakfast included pastries, yogurt, and fruit. Our stay was pleasant,

Everything about this hotel is quaint and cute, from the little bedrooms all feeding of the courtyard to the wonderful accommodating hosts, who you feel are really living their dream. This hotel is filled with little touches. Each room being decorated individually by the resident artist (not all massively to my taste), to the freshly squeezed orange juice, fresh fruit, personal cafetiere and the artisan bread and croissants at breakfast. We had room 3 which was nice to be on the corner but could do with having a new mattress and wasn't so delightful when you had to get up in the middle of the night for the toilet. On the whole this hotel is perfect for that little bit of personal and friendly French touch you may be looking for in Antibes.

We stayed in the suite on the 1st floor, as all the rooms around the courtyard were booked. The room was nice, had a dressing room with arm chairs and wardrobes which provided some extra space for us to put suitcases and purchases etc. There was a small balcony, which we didn't really use, but there were a couple of chairs there for one to sit out. There were 2 issues with the room, firstly the shower was tiny and the tap was very easy to knock with your elbow, meaning that your nice warm shower could instantly become scalding hot or freezing cold and there was no shower curtain which meant that the small bathroom was covered in water when you finished showering, no matter how careful you were. When we were there (in August) it was hot and with no a/c, we had a fan which moved warm air around. Sadly the fan had a gentle squeak, which normally wouldn't be an issue but seemed to become louder and louder when trying to get to sleep.
Yves and Claude were helpful and provided good information on day trips and what to see. Breakfasts in the courtyard were lovely with fresh bread, jam and croissants. With Salis beach just a few moments away, the location is ideal, we didn't use our car all week, walking to the Marche Provencale in old Antibes, taking the train for trips to Villefranche and Cannes and going to the beach. There is plenty of artwork on show in the rooms, produced in the studio at the hotel and most of it is good to look at. The hotel dog is very sweet and it was hard not to give him some treats from breakfast, but everyone was asked not to for his health.
Overall it was a lovely experience and piece of tranquility just moments from the hustle of the beach and Antibes, but it could have been even better with just a few small improvements to the room.

Room Tip: Try and get a room around the courtyard, as they are far better value and you then have a table at y...

I thoroughly enjoyed my week stay in Hotel La Jabotte! The hosts Yves and Claude were so welcoming, very helpful, friendly and spoilt us! The rooms are very pretty, individually decorated by a superb inhouse artist, in little cottages which all open onto a beautiful garden where continental breakfast is served in the morning. The homemade jams are delicious! After spending the day on the beach, which is less than 2 minutes walk, (the hotel have beach chairs & mats for guests use) you return to the garden for a refreshing cocktail or two and plenty of delicious nibbles before heading into Antibes old town for a great selection of restaurants. The town is 10 min walk from hotel along the beach. Transport can also be arranged by the hotel to/from Nice Airport which is more cost efficient than attempting public transport or there is parking at the hotel too. I can not fault my experience at all. I definitely recommend it if u are travelling alone, as a couple or pals looking for a relaxing break- I will definitely return!

This little hotel is brilliantly situated, 2 minutes walk from the beach and just 15 mins walk into the Old Town. The attention to detail is superb. The courtyard garden where we took breakfast is a city gardeners dream, the place is aesthetically pleasing from the moment you come through the gate into the jasmine sented walkway until you leave and are given a little pot of homemade apricot jam! The breakfast was fresh and abundant (gorgeous croissants) and Yves and Claude speak perfect English (thankfully) and gave us 2 excellent restaurant recommendations. They also booked our taxi for us and were very helpful and knowledgeable about markets, opening hours etc. Rooms are cleaned everyday and fresh towels always left. The rooms are very small and there was no set of drawers in ours. If you were a couple with a lot of luggage, you may struggle to find a place for it all. And if you were of a "large build" you may struggle to fit in the shower. However, we spent no time in the rooms so it was a perfect base for sleeping. The ambience is quiet,respectful and relaxed. Like the sign that says they welcome other "chien gentil", the same could be applied to the residents. Lovely.

My husband & I spent 4 fantastic days here meeting up with friends from Australia. Our friends booked the hotel and it was a great surprise. Yves and Claude were the best of hosts serving delicious breakfasts in the courtyard, even better cocktails at 6pm and suggested excellent restaurants to eat at both good value and special. A dip in the ocean was 2mins away if you fancied before breakfast! Yves artwork was delightful. We purchased some lovely painted coffee cups & saucers as a reminder of our memorable stay in Antibes. We can't wait to go back.
