EXCELLENT LOCATION

Posted Nov 11, 2013
Pros: LOCATION OF HOTEL EXCELLENT CENTRAL, BUT ON A QUIET ROAD. ROOMS SOUNDPROOFED, TEA & COFFEE MAKING FACILITIES IN ROOM & A VERY COMFY BED.
Cons: ALTHOUGH THE LOBBY AREA IS VERY NICE, ROOMS COULD DO WITH A LICK OF PAINT. NO SATELLITE CHANNELS ON TV. RESTAURANT NEEDS MORE VARITY OF FOOD/CHEAPER.
Location: THE HOTEL IS A 15 MINS WALK TO THE BUS/TRAIN STATION, 10 MINS TO THE BEACH & PLENTY OF EXCELLENT & REASONABLE RESTAURANTS.
HOTEL IS VERY GOOD TO SAY ITS A 3 STAR, HAS ALL AMENTIES & ALTHOUGH ROOM WAS QUITE SMALL IT WAS EQUIPTED WELL...IN FACT WE HAD BOOKED A STANDARD ROOM BUT WERE GIVEN A SUPERIOR ROOM ON THE 3RD FLOOR WITH BALCONY...BONUS! MENTON IS A VERY NICE TOWN TO STAY IN HIGHLY RECOMMENDED WITH TWO BEACHES PEBBLES & SAND, YOU WILL FIND PLENTY OF PLACES TO EAT & REASONABLE TOO. GET ON THE TRAIN & YOU CAN BE IN MONACO WITHIN 10 MINS, NICE 15 MINS OR TRY VENTURING INTO ITALY 25 MINS & YOUR IN SAN REMO.....ITS EASY & CHEAP!

Central Menton hotel close to the beach.

Posted Sep 9, 2013
Pros: Just the central position.
Cons: The food for a start and the willingness to help, from some of the staff.
Location: The town is lovely and there is a cathredal, a beautiful church, lovely small and intricated cobble streets to visit, in the old town.
The hotel is in a good central position- near the bus and train station and near shops, restaurants and the beach. The hotel is functional and clean. The staff is friendly though I found the receptionist ladies much more willing to help with all my enquiries than not the two gentlemen who were there during my staying. I thought they both were rather lazy. Breakfast is uninteresting and on some mornings some of the foodstuff that was supposed to be there wasn't. I complained at the manager who was very polite and rectified the problems by the morning after but offered no refund. I only had one evening meal at the hotel because the food was less than average, was presented badly and very expensive for what it was. I had much better meals in Menton and in the towns around. I was off my meal anyway as soon as I sat down because I saw a waiteress chewing a pen in the dining room in full view...!! So I thought that if that was allowed in the restaurant I didn't want to even think what they were doing in the kitchen...!!

accessibility for disabled

Posted Aug 27, 2013
Pros: location
Cons: if they continue to list the hotel as disabled friendly then they should reserve one space on the street for parking as the garage is not accessible.
Location: location is good,,,near to the beach and great for the shoppping area and good access for evening activities.
i booked this hotel as it claimed to be disabled accessible. There was parking, however, even as a wheelchair guest you needed to be reminded that disabled parking was only with reservation and it should be said that even in the case you have a parking it is in an underground garage with a narrow winding staircase taking you to the hotel lobby. The staff had no information about the wherabouts of the nearest handicap parking on the street and did not seem to care one way or the other. There was no assistance with luggage in spite of the fact I had to push my friends wheelchair while leaving my car double parked! The room was accessible and the bathroom shower as well. However the curtains were falling down and the place had a strange air refreshener smell. It was doable for 2 nights but i would not go there again.

It is difficult to fault this hotel. My party of 8 had everything they required. It is very conveniently situated for beach and old town. The staff are cheerful and welcoming. Good value.

Basic - would not return

Posted Jul 21, 2013
Pros: Location is good.
Cons: Breakfast service(or lack of), room decor dated.
Hotel is in a good location, within walking distance to the beach in Menton. Rooms very disappointing - very small, decor dated. Bath with hairs which had clearly not been cleaned properly, however there was a good AC unit in the room. We stayed for 2 nights and had breakfast in the second. What a shambles! The breakfast room was a mess. There was no one to greet us and show us a table. When we found a table, it was a scramble to find cutlery. I used the serviette as a plate to butter my croissant. Fruit salad comprised of warm tinned pears, and yoghurt was just awful. Reception staff friendly and accommodating.

Highly recommended, cannot fault

Posted Jul 18, 2013
Pros: yogurt in the breakfast
Cons: nothing really
Location: 7 minutes walk from the station, 5 minutes from the beach
Great location, 7 minutes walking distance from the train and the bus station. Very close to the beach and the center of the town. Rooms are great, clean and minimal design. The bedsheets have natural feel to them than the usual polyester feel that you normally get from hotel bedding. The staff is friendly and speak English. The breakfast is minimal as is the case with most French hotels, but better that way than wasting food. The yogurt they have is lovely, enjoyed having that with prunes every morning. The bar on the top floor is good though there was no one to serve when we went up one evening. I am sure we could have called the service, but were happy just to look at the views from there. There is a good wine bar just next to the hotel. Overall, highly recommended, cannot fault.

Ideal for a couple

Posted Jun 26, 2013
Pros: Small and friendly, centrally located.
Cons: None
Location: Well located in centre of town
My wife and I have been going to this hotel for the last 6 years and have always been well looked after. Staff are friendly and very helpful. It may be an older hotel but rooms are clean, have air conditioning and a reasonable size. A roof terrace allows for free sunbathing which saves going to the beach. Well located in the heart of the town with easy access to shops and restaurants. Free WiFi is available although reception in some rooms can be patchy but fine in the lobby or sun terrace.

short stay for 40th wedding anniversary

Posted May 19, 2013
on the wholes this hotel met most of our requirements. Our room was to the rear, so was quiet and didnt get too hot, though one night we had to use the air contioning and this unit was basic and did not have many settings. Also the hair dryer had a low setting and took ages to do its job, and the electric cable had never been cleaned as it had it's own layer of fluffy hair. Breakfast was as expected, though there seemed a total lack of teaspoons, but a good selection of tea bags. Also any spare croissants where left in reception and these became a regular stopping point after a long day out. there,s an excellent roof top patio with bar and sun loungers, ideal for a relaxing drink at the end of an hecktic day, however watch out, they offer a happy hour price list, which one bar staff would'nt honor even after we protested the issue, which is poor staff training or just poor staff as the same person had asked us to pay twice for one lot of drinks the day before. if you want an hotel a short walk from the shops and sea front then this one fit the bill.

Great hotel for those who need everything nearby.

Posted Apr 17, 2013
The hotel was excellent, the bathroom was clean & adequate with a good shower & towels. The breakfast was good with most things available. The staff could not have been more helpful, My wife is 77 & I am 84 so the help was much appreciated
