To put this review into context you have to understand this this region is very expensive. We paid €150 per night (3 nights) for sea view rooms and I can tell you, this is very reasonable for this area in high season.
Having booked the hotel I was impressed to receive an email direct from Nicole at the hotel. Nicole was really helpful in advance of our travel. Throughout our stay Nicole could not have been more helpful and was a pleasure to deal with.
We had two rooms, one on floor one and one on floor two. You can see from the pictures that the view was really nice - I was confused by the recent review I have read saying otherwise. As expected the rooms were pretty small but were nice, clean and comfortable. We didn't have breakfast at the hotel but Nicole did supply ample tea and coffee for us to enjoy each morning on the lovely hotel patio. We did walk into Monte Carlo and it took about 30 minutes, very hilly though so better off taking a taxi (€20) or getting the bus which only costs €1.
We visited the local Roquebrune village and it was so lovely. Well worth the time. During the day we eat at Fraise et Chocolat - really nice, and on the evening we eat at the amazing Au Grand Inquisiteur. If you go to the Village then book a table. You will not regret it!
We got a taxi a couple of times to go into town as well. On one occasion we had really uncomfortable night. The taxi driver in a black Jaguar recommended a good value local restaurant with excellent food. The place, La Difference, was in the middle of nowhere. Within minutes of us being seated the taxi driver reappeared, was shown to his table and was lavished with food. Our food, cold and expensive arrived sometime later. We very much felt that the taxi driver had taken us there so he could get his free meal. We could not recommend this restaurant.
Overall we had a lovely few days, the hotel was nice and Nicole was a great host.
NOTE: I am having problems uploading photos will will try to do so later.
