We stayed 8 nights at the hotel, paying euros 95 in Sept, then 85 in Oct. The hotel doesn't have its own car park, but we never had any problems after 5pm each day in finding a space outside on the road. The location of this hotel is everything, in that the view from the balcony is just lovely (we had a double sea-view room on the 2nd floor). The breakfast (at euros 8.50 per day) is a simple but more than adequate buffet, consisting of fruit juice, fruit, cereal, bread rolls, cheese, croissants and jam. The room was basic but clean; shower facilities were ok, the only downside was the bed which was a bit hard for us. The hotel has no lift, so if you are elderly or infirm you may find the steps up to your room tiring, but Villefranche is quite hilly with lots of steps which is fine if you have good health. The hotel is located in the Port of Darse, so overlooking the boat harbour, and is a pleasant 10 min stroll into Villefranche Sur Mer where you'll find quite a lot of restaurants and a few shops. We had quite a lot of lovely meals in Villefranche, with higher priced meals and drinks on the front. Would recommend that you go and explore and find restaurants where locals eat and where the food is better and more reasonably priced. Villefranche Sur Mer, like most of of the Cote D'Azur strip are just busy and touristy so expect that things aren't cheap. Would recommend you visit Menton Garavan and Menton (which are easy to get to on the train from Villefranche).
