“A gem of a hotel”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

I stay in the hotel each year when I come to France for the Cannes Film Festival. I prefer to stay in Valbonne rather than Cannes, in large part because of the beautiful Hotel les Armoiries, and its owner/manager, Richard. Each year he treats me like an old friend, and I feel like it's a home away from home. The hotel overlooks the village square, and it could not be in a better position. The rooms are beautifully furnished, but it's the excellent service that distinguishes the hotel. For instance, I gave Richard a silk/linen shirt to wash - it was a special shirt for the Festival, and instead of sending it out to the laundry, he arranged for one of the staff to hand wash the shirt, then personally iron it. The shirt came back spotlessly clean, and without damage. That's the kind of service they give you at the hotel.

Twice a week the locals set up a market in the square right outside the hotel's front door, and it's fabulous to wander through and look at all the craftsmen/women and their goods.

I love this hotel, and I will be definitely coming back next year!

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the square.

The location of the hotel is fantastic, but the warmth of the welcome by Richard, the manager and the authentically 'French' atmosphere were the highlights of our stay. The room was cool and clean, and best of all - no duvet! It's so much better to have layers of blankets so you can ajust them during the night. You can easily catch a bus to Cannes if you want to visit the beach, but Valbonne is so much nicer. The hotel is right on the square, so it's best to request a room at the back. Good restaurants all around, and the manager will recommend one down a little side street where the staff speak English, and where the food is fantastic. It's a wonderful place for a visit! I can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Choose a room at the back of the hotel, away from the busy square.

This used to be such a great hotel just shows how bad things can go through a change of management ...

Room Tip: Please don't go there .. any of you who had romantic memories will be disappointed

We have stayed at the very old romantic hotel overlooking the village square of Valbonne. If you’re thinking of a romantic quiet weekend break, you’ve just found the ideal location. The rooms are not big, but every single one is unique: from turn of the century chic with heavy wooden furniture to light rooms with lime green bed lights and flower print curtains.

The Swedish (!) couple that run the hotel are very friendly and provide excellent service. They even made midnight sandwiches for us when we arrived from our delayed flight.

Can't fault the location of this hotel, Valbonne is beautiful.
Situated in the centre of the village directly on the square.
Stayed in the hotel for 4 nights with my wife visiting relatives during the christmas period. The first 2 nights were grim to say the least.
A very small room with poor quality bed/mattress and basic toilet/shower room.

After complaining we were given bigger room that had a reasonable bed.
We were told there is an on-going room refurbishment programme... ??

I wouldn't stay there again.. for me the most important thing in a hotel is comfortable beds and both rooms lacked this basic requirement.
We both had back ache after staying at this hotel due to the poor quality beds

The hotel could do with a good clean.. but then you could say that this place has a Rustic charm. It certainly does!!!
It felt like some clumsy DIY enthusiast had created the bathrooms..

I expected more for my money.

Les Armoiries has the most wonderful location in the centre of Valbonne, near Nice. It's bang in the centre of the village which makes it great for getting around -- but does also make it pretty noisy. We were there in November so the worst of the noise from the square outside had died down by 10pm, I can imagine it's pretty noisy in the summer when the square is packed with diners at the local restaurants until pretty late on. The decor is fairly old fashioned as was the bathroom, but everything worked fine and the staff were very welcoming and helpful. A good choice for a night or two.

Room Tip: If you're concerned about noise, ask for a room at the back, which are smaller I think but quiet...
