Loved Villefranche sur mer and loved the Welcome Hotel! We stayed in the Jean Cocteau room. The view was amazing, in the morning the local fisherman brought his catch to a little stall out the front! The sunset over the bay was stunning. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful! Can't wait to come back and stay again.

We stayed here for three nights in early March. They are wonderfully kind and so welcoming. Our room was spacious and very comfortable with a king bed and a small loveseat and a comfortable chair. The balcony overlooks the bay and is a wonderful addition to the room. The bath was spacious as well and had L'occitaine products. The location...

Just a brilliant little hotel in a brilliant little town. I loved it. The rooms, views and overall ambiance of Welcome are truly exceptional. An easy walk to a sandy beach, good restaurants and the train station make it a perfect base for exploring Nice, Monaco and all the Cote d' Azure. Welcome? Wonderful!

We stayed here for a week in September and this was our second visit to this wonderful hotel and the second time around did not disappoint. As all the rooms face the ocean, every room has a terrific view. To start with breakfast on the terrace each morning is an energising start to the day and to come back after...

Well, before we started planning for a romantic 3 week vacation in France we understood through our conversations with other travelers and the research we conducted that life was going to slow down in this place. Like many times when we throw ourselves into new experiences or places it can take awhile before we open ourselves up and allow a...

We first "found" this hotel in the 1990s and were immediately captivated by the attitude of all the staff and management. We have visited a number of times since then and although the building and amenities have been updated the welcome remains warm and efficient. The location is stunning, located on the quayside at the foot of the "Old Town"...
