This is a lovely location despite it being a long walk from the harbour - read some of the other reviews for details on that. We had a car for the 6 days we stayed and it was a perfect peaceful spot to come back to after a day on the beach and sightseeing. It is in a good location for access either East or West and great views form the Hotel.
The room was not in the main hotel but overlooking the pool. Very pretty, clean and well kept - a bit like a large beach hut, perfect.
We did not breakfast in the hotel but owners/staff were very helpful and charming. The friend I went with will be going back at some stage for a family event so it does get a big tick.
If you have transport, must dos are: visit old Eze Village late afternoon/early evening and have a pizza in the Italian restaurant that is in a passageway almost at the top; must have supper in Le Garçon in VilleFranche, in a square just up from the harbour; and visit Cap Ferat - you can do a walk around the peninsula which is lovely, Antibes is lovely; best beach is Plage de Passable, especially on a weekday, just don't eat in the restaurant (expensive and miserable service), take a picnic like all the locals do. Things I would not bother with are: Monaco, Las Vegas by the sea and less accessible; Nice - I am sure there are interesting things to see in and around but not particularly for a stroll around.
Hope that helps.
