We stayed here for three days at the beginning of August. It does look old and tired from the front but inside it is clean, modern and welcoming. The bedroom we stayed in was very modern and clean, large and was lovely and quiet. I also had a fridge was handy! The bathroom wasn't huge but it was big enough and the shower was great! If I stayed again I would ask for a room at the front of the hotel as ours was on the back and the view was of trees and a fence! - I guess you get what you pay for though! The views from the front were beautiful and far reaching!
Breakfast was lovely, (there was always a great smell of something sweet baking in the hotel!), continental and lots of choice. The only thing we found with breakfast time which let the hotel down was that when something ran out you had to search for someone to replenish it (and this certainly wasn't the only hotel which we stayed in during our trip which let itself down in this way).
Hotel du Baou is off around 25-30 minutes out of Nice which at our age is what we wanted, although it was nice to drive into Nice during the day!
With the Hotel as our base we visited the lovely village of Villefranche, also Monaco and got the Italian border only to find that we'd forgotten our passports but nevermind1
