Enjoying water front views, and located in beautiful village. The staff made our stay very memorable , enjoyed the breakfast and the good coffee.
Many good restaurants in the village. We hired the hotel yacht for a half a day, and the skipper was very professional , it was a highlight of our 4 week stay on France.
We had adjoining rooms for our children, which worked well for our family

Everyone was exceptionally kind, from the accommodating reception to the bar staff that made fresh mint tea when I wasn't feeling well. I saw a VERY slightly larger room on the 1st (American 2nd) floor, but preferred (and chose) the (almost imperceptibly) smaller (and cheaper!) room ("Comfort"?) on the 5th (I believe) floor, which had a much bigger view of the water, including the coming and going of various boats and ships (and more diffused street noise). It did have a much smaller balcony, but that was OK for me. The front of the hotel receives full hot summer sun in the mornings, so the late afternoons and the evenings are best for relaxing on the balcony and taking in the views, and all you have to do is drift downstairs to a nearby restaurant for dinner at 7, then head back up to your balcony to watch the moon come up over Cap Ferrat. Heaven. Good to know when arriving: "Octroi" is the name of the bus stop if taking the 100 bus from Nice. Get off the bus and head downhill and always towards the left (so you end up on the left/east side of the old fort, NOT the right/west). I believe the 81 bus (?) is another good option (less crowded). Buses along the coast are frequent, but when I was there there was a train strike, and the buses were utterly mobbed (sometimes so full they wouldn't even stop to add more passengers), and everyone was pushing quite rudely to get onto the buses when they did stop. No fault of the hotel, all this, just fair warning about the reality of buses when under duress. To get back to the normal 100/81 bus stop from the hotel involves walking up many steps and somewhat steep streets, so you should be able and prepared for that if relying on buses. And be aware that buses don't run late from Nice back to Villefranche, so it is safer to dine in Villefranche! The train station is a mostly level walk away, perhaps 10 minutes, but there are also some stairs to get up to the actual tracks. Stairs are a fact of life in this little hillside town (except to the nearby public beach or to the more expensive restaurants that line the waterfront). I found my balcony view so interesting and calming that it was truly hard to think of leaving to go see anything else, but if you are up for a walk, the Rothschild villa across the bay on Cap Ferrat was interesting, the (included) audio commentary very good, and the gardens were beautiful. Loved the quaint Villefranche waterfront much more than Nice. Just wonderful.

Room Tip: The smaller rooms ("Comfort", I believe) on the higher floors are almost as big as the lower down rooms (that are quite a bit more expensive), and the full bay view on those higher floors is absolutely phenomenal. But the balconies are much smaller on those higher floors.

We have just returned from celebrating our wedding anniversary at Hotel Welcome. I had spent some time identifying a suitable destination on the Cote d'Azur that would be charming, reasonably buzzy, but not as developed as Nice or as intense as St.Tropez. Villefranche-sur-Mer seemed promising and the Trip Advisor reviews of Hotel Welcome persuaded us it would be the right place to stay despite being a little more expensive than we had planned. It all turned out to be so right - Villefranche is indeed charming, always something happening on the water, the beach is clean and the water clear if you want to swim, and the old pedestrian area is full of atmosphere and a good number of interesting restaurants, and there is a beautiful walk round Cap Ferrat if you feel so inclined. The Hotel itself is delightful, and the staff just the same. Our room, like nearly all the rooms, overlooked the bay, and we had a balcony which was perfect for soaking up the atmosphere. The bar staff even brought cocktails up to our room with no fuss at all. Before our trip I had liaised with both Charles and Julien about the booking and recommending restaurants and they had been so helpful; whilst we were there we met them, and Olivier, and everyone was so pleasant to us. We realised it is a family run hotel - and it really shows - on our last day they were able to allow us an extended checkout, having carefully checked when the next guests for our room were to arrive - it was so clearly run by people who cared about their guests, and they were so good about helping us with the transport problems we encountered on our last day. The breakfasts were also lovely and fresh and served in the sunny 'conservatory' area which overlooked the bay and boats and we felt privileged to be sitting there as people walked by. We felt really comfortable in the hotel and felt it was in the best position in Villefranche - just a stroll away from the quayside and the beach and the interesting pedestrian old part of the town just behind the hotel, and with the most wonderful views. We will definitely be going back!

Villefranche has to be one of the most stunning places in Europe. The quays along the bay are dotted with small restaurants, quaint shops and there is a small beach that is arguably one of the best maintained. when the sun is shining, there is literally nothing like it. We stayed at the Welcome Hotel, well positioned on the quays with the most spectacular views of the bay. our first impressions - the desk staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms were small, but nice. However, there was no coffee making facilities in the room, there was no restaurant in the hotel and unfortunately, the hotel seems to have no internal sound insulation, which means you can hear guests conversations next door, the opening and closing of their wardrobes, their visits to the bathroom and it is particularly bad at night, as all the hotel sounds are amplified. You definitely need to bring earplugs, as the cobblestone road outside the hotel encourages cars to rattle, particularly the early morning trucks and vans, guaranteed to wake you up every morning at 6.am, assuming you get to sleep in the first place... The buffet breakfast is simple and can be dependent on a little bit of luck, as sometimes they have more than yogurt and baguettes, such as scrambled eggs and tiny sausages, other times not. The coffee is good and once you get past the feeling that the breakfast waiting staff are serving out a sentence by working there, it can be enjoyable to watch the comings and goings on the quayside while sipping your morning coffee. Its not a bad hotel, but with just a little effort, it could be fantastique!

Room Tip: Bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper, as the hotel appears to have absolutely no internal sound insulation, meaning you have no option but to listen to hotel guests in conversation, moving furniture, opening wardrobes, visiting the bathroom and so on.

Stunning views from this historic, waterfront hotel. Our corner room 42 was quiet, had 2 balconies, and while small wasn't tiny. The well equipped bathroom was tiny and had great towels. While the room size and decor - trying to maintain the history of the space? - were not quite up to the standard for the price charged, it was still worth it. After all, it's the Cote d'Azur.

The lobby and bar area were nicely done and I especially loved the paintings on the elevator doors and walls. There was even turn down service and candies on the bedside tables. Those were impressive touches one rarely experiences any more.

The staff was TERRIFIC, breakfast on the quay delightful and good, and although expensive having the staff take care of the parking was a luxury.

Do not miss the stunning chapel across the street with Jean Cocteau's paintings.

Villefranche sur Mer is the perfect location: small, intimate, manageable, easily walkable. Would we stay here and at the Welcome Hotel again???? ABSOLUTELY!

Room Tip: Our corner room 42 had 2 balconies and was quiet.
