Having looked at the hotel's website and reading the reviews on this site we were expecting to be feeling pretty smug: it looked like a great find.
However, upon our arrival (at around 10pm) the night porter seemed most put out at having to show us to our room. This somewhat indifferent attitude was clearly infectious as all reception staff seemed to display similar symptoms. Maybe we were singled out as black sheep because we didn't partake in their overpriced breakfast (see below.)
Rooms are on the small size and basic. The walls - certainly in our room - were wafer thin so the comings and goings of other guests were more noticeable than we would have liked them to be.
As is common with most French hotels, breakfast is not included in the rate and, at €10 a person, we found it poor value for money. There are a number of excellent places in Antibes and you can get much more for your money there.
One thing to bear in mind is that, if you don't have a car, Anitbes is a 20 min + walk. Close to the hotel there is only a pharmacy, a small convenience store and a bar/restaurant (that we didn't venture into.)
In summary, it's a clean and basic hotel but please don't be misled by photos and reviews that make it seem anything more than that.
