This is a great alternative to middle-of-nowhere hotels for travel to Sophia Antipolis. It is nearby (15 min. by car) and is in the middle of a nice village, with restaurants, shopping, etc. Breakfast (if not included) is relatively cheap (12 Euro) and just right-sized.
Having said that, it is not a business hotel and some things a business traveler might expect are just not quite there. It is in the middle of a pedestrian district - parking in the village is free, but you have to walk (with you luggage) for about 5 min. to the hotel. The bath is more of an older European home then a modern hotel. Some rooms can be quite small.
For me the trade-off will be worth it and I will be coming back here, but it may not be for everyone.

Nice easy hotel to find and a great location for me as it was very close to the office that I was visiting (a 36 euro Uber trip from Nice airport)
Welcoming and friendly staff I was checked in fast.
Room was basic and entirely functional, aircon worked well and was not too noisy
Wireless connection was free and but not lightning fast, you wouldn’t be streaming any video but fine for basic web access.
Restaurant was very nice and the food and staff were great. I only ate there once so I don’t know how often the menu changes.
I saw the outside area and swimming pool (no time to use) and that looked pleasant.
There seems to be a bus service down to Antibes which would be a good visit if you are there for more than a couple of nights, I am told that its stops later at night, so It might mean a taxi/uber back.
Overall a OK visit, rooms could just do with an update.
