Hotel Le Pre Catelan

Reviewed June 21, 2013

Just back from a brilliant short break at an equally brilliant Hotel. Le Pre Catalan is one of the best B&B hotels I've ever stayed at, this visit was my 4th or 5th. Never tire of the place, the staff are excellent, very welcoming, it's almost like visiting family! Settled for a Continental Breakfast this year, as opposed to Buffet Breakfast. The Continental was far more than I could have hoped for, Baguette, Croisant, Cake, Cheese, Yogurt, Fruit Juice, Fresh Fruit and of course Tea or Coffee. What more can one ask for? Hopefully will go again next year!

We stayed at Le Pre Catelan for 4 nights in June 13 and absolutely loved it. We were welcomed by a very friendly and helpful gentleman who helped us land on our feet in a new town with recommendations of what to do and see. The hotel is a 5 minute walk to all of the beaches and restaurants, etc Juan Le Pin has to offer, and has a lovely clean pool with comfy deck chairs if you don't want to go out. It only does brekky, but what a cracking breakfast it is! You can have all you can eat and drink (multiple coffees in my case), and the 'chamber maids' are really friendly. Most speak English. Each room is themed, and the whole place has a really interesting feel with antique furniture from all over the region.

My friends and I have just returned from a four night break at the Pre Catalan Hotel. It is a lovely hotel, close to everything in Juan Le Pin. The hotel is clean and has lots of charm in a central but very quiet area. The pool area is lovely and taking breakfast in the garden was the perfect start to every day. What made our stay extra special was the hotel owners and staff, they were all friendly and very helpful. We are definitely going to return to this hotel very soon, we all had a wonderful time.

As part of a tour of Southern France (St. Tropez to Monaco) we stayed 3 days in this hotel. Hotel is perfectly located for trips to Cannes and Nice, as well as Antibes and Juan-les-Pins are definitely worth it. Cannes and Nice are real world with a fantastic atmosphere, where you can do anything. Well pricey, do not expect cheap. Antibes and Juan-Les-Pins are tourist towns where shopping is fine. During the day, go to the beach, evening cocktails and good food, pretty cheaper than the aforementioned cities.

The hotel was really a disappointment. At the reception we were helped good and friendly. Parking fee of 13 euros per day was a disappointment, especially if you already paid 125 euros per day. Breakfast will take another 10 to 15 euros per day extra, we have not done. Sufficient bakeries and coffee shops. The rooms are dramatic, very small. Small beds, we did not sleep a wink. very small and dated showers.

The area we will definitely come back to, but we skip this hotel.

Room Tip: Look for an other hotel if you like to sleep. :)

Dear Mr Scherbeijn,

You say that you were dissapointed with your room:

You made a reservation on a online travel agency for a" classic standard doubleroom".
The description of this room (we juste have 2 classic rooms at le Pré Catelan) mention that you are booking the smallest and cheapest room of our hotel with a 140*190 french bed and 11 meters square available.

Upon arrival et le Pré Catelan you say that our reception was helpful and friendly. If the room you booked was not convinient and if you wanted a queen size bed, why didn't you ask them if a change was possible? A Superior room with balcony and a queen bed was available for only 25 euros supplement per night !

If you think that during the last weekd end of the Cannes Film Festival and during the "Grand Prix de Monaco" week end the price of 125 euros was to high, you had better reserve in a 2 stars hotel less expensive or choose another location away from Cannes area.

Our hot and cold English buffet breakfast is 15 euros and is offering a large hot and cold choice.
You had also the possibility to ask for a continental breakfast at 10 euros.
Our parking is not free. It's clearly specified in all web sites where you can find le Pré Catelan .
If you think that it is easy to park outside for free with no risk up to you!

To have what you want, it is always easiest to speak directly with the hotel reception. Friendly and helpfull, they will always do their best to find a solution and offer something suitable.

Disappointing that you were unable to speak with us, we would have done everything to make your stay comfortable and nice!

The owners and staff at this hotel are particularly friendly and helpful. The hotel is delightful and the architecture has some features of Art Deco styling which appeals to me greatly.

The location is superb, being in a quite road but with the beachfront and local shops and restaurants within just a few minutes walk. Antibes is about 15 minutes walk and whilst we did have a car, we did not need to use it at all during the evening.

The hotel represents good value and the bedrooms have safes and refrigerators.

We would not hesitate to recommend Le Pre Catelan and would certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: We visited with friends and both rooms faced onto the garden and had balconies. There was no traffi...

My husband and Iloved this hotel, we stayed for five nights in September and were extremely lucky with the weather which was beautifully warm. This meant we were able to eat breakfast (good quality and plentiful) each morning in the garden, which was a lovely start to the day.
Our room was quite spacious with windows on adjacent walls which made it beautifully light, the air conditioning was efficient and quiet. There were guests in adjoining rooms but we didn't hear them which was great.
The location of this hotel is terrific; we took a train from Nice St Augustin ( the little known airport station) to Juan les Pins and then it was less than 10 minutes to walk to the hotel. It is in a quiet, leafy little road about two minutes from the bustling centre of Juan. A public beach is about five minutes walk away and we 'hired' beach towels from the hotel, they are also able to offer a discount on one or two of the nearby private beaches.We discovered that walking to Antibes old town was simple following a route starting through the back gate of the hotel.It took us about twenty minutes gentle strolling to a restaurant next to the Picasso museum which saved on taxi fares or car hire. If you do have a car though there is ample parking in the hotel.
The only negative thing was the mosquito bites I got through sitting in the garden one evening at dusk without repellent, but that was hardly the fault of the hotel.
We recommend this lovely little hotel and would definitely return.

This hotel is heavily decorated - if you can't stand run of the mill chain hotels, Hotel Le Pre Catelan is for you. We enjoyed the shabby chic surroundings. Although the hotel itself and the rooms seem a bit worn, we found it charming.

Also, it appears to be clean. We staid three nights and the room and bathroom were immaculately done.

The garden is a big bonus - so pleasant to sit under the trees and relax. The garden also offers some peace and quiet in an area where you expect a lot of traffic noice due to the hotel's central location.

The breakfast is good. All in all you get value for money at Le Pre Catelan.
