“Fantastic hotel!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

Stayed at this hotel for 6 nights in June/July 2013. hotel was fantastic - excellent service, very helpful and friendly. Location absolutely perfect. Room was good - on the small side, but didn't matter at all as I spent all the time on the most amazing balcony overlooking the waterfront. Prime position!!

Room Tip: Must get a waterfront room with balcony

Fantastic views from balcony. Lovely friendly staff.
But/ Shabby room and breakfast extra . Price you pay is not a reflection of room you will get. Thought they where exploiting their fabulous position on the edge of the main strip by selling sub standard rooms with fancy names such as "superior double room" which is what we paid the extra for. The only thing superior about our room was the bill.
Still, the area really is a lovely place to visit and enjoyed our holiday but disappointed with the standard of the accomodation for the price charged.

Room Tip: Wouldn`t bother paying extra for a superior room. It may be better to just book a comfort room as...

The staff are very helpful and the hotel is well-positioned, right on the bay, but our room (at the top of the hotel) was small with awkward toilet and bathroom facilities (even though we are neither especially large nor clumsy!). Expensive for what it was, though we take some of the blame for travelling in this region in August. Parking can be a real challenge - be prepared to walk a long (very steep) way or pay top dollar for more convenience - and the public beach gets extraordinarily crowded in peak season.

Room Tip: Our room on the top floor was very small but had excellent views from its balcony.

My wife and I just spent 3 days here after touring Provence. If you want to avoid the craziness and crowds of Nice or St Tropez this is the place to stay. The front facing rooms have beautiful views of the bay. The staff was incredible. There are public beaches close by but for a better experience the front staff will reserve a place for you across the bay at a private beach in Cap Ferrat. They even provide complimentary 10 min boat transportation. Its about 25euro per person for the day. There are many restaurants around the hotel and you can have breakfast on your balcony.
We will definitely come back next year!

Room Tip: book a comfort or superior room to get a sea view.

Just stopped in for drinks so can't comment in the rooms. It was very hot and this was the only place we could find that had ac so spent a pleasant hour with a bottle of the local red. Very refreshing!

The authentic Cote D Zur experience! Stayed here with my hubby for 6 nights in Superior room, wonderful is all we can say! Staff absolutely friendly (esp. Joanne!), willing to help with every convenience, breath-taking views of the water from every hotel room balcony. Long fascinating history, and it is the place where other people come to have a drink and bite to eat due to great service and views.

We loved our stay at Hotel Welcome! Perfect for our honeymoon, we loved the views. The room was really large. The staff was incredibly helpful. I definitely recommend Hotel Welcome to anyone staying in the French Riveria.
