We (couple in early thirties) stayed there for four nights and enjoyed our stay very much. Ok the hotel has not been fully renovated for a number of years but has plenty of charm and still looked good (in our eyes). Our room (€115) on the second floor was average size for a hotel room (not too small) and was decorated very nicely, carpet looked newish and very clean - nice furnishings too. Had a safe in the fitted wardrobe and also (a big plus in the heat) a fridge to store your own drinks. The bathrooms was probably the most noticably dated thing but did not detract at all from the enjoyment of our stay.
The exterior of the hotel is clearly lovely and the atmosphere calm and relaxed.
Jean les Pins is very easy to reach by public transport - bus from terminal 1 at Nice Airport costs only 1€ to Jean les Pins! Cannes, Nice, Grasse and Monaco can all be reached easily on the train.
Due to Euro exchange rate Brits may find the Riveria quite expensive. Many restaurants seem rather over priced even without this added factor. One tip for a light dinner would be La Creperie on 17 Rue Dautheville (Tel. [--]) - they have a wide range of very interesting savoury pancakes for about €8-9 and sweet pancakes from around €4. Another restaurant we'd recommend is La Forge in Antibes (10 Rue Aubernon, tel. [--]) - we found all the dishes we had on the €25 Menu to be excellent quality and value. Nice place with a relaxed charm - probably best to book ahead if you want to sit outside.
