This is an ideal place to base yourself for exploring the Cote d'Azur.
The hotel itself is very clean, and we had a corner room with plenty of space. I booked via their website and requested the green room, which they were able to provide, and it was quiet (even though it was on the corner of the main street).
We chose not to take breakfast (at E8.50) but instead had coffee and croissants most mornings at the cafes just down the road. There is also a nice market in the square where you can get fresh fruit and veges, and we did baguettes for ourselves a couple of times for lunch.
Beaulieu is a very quiet town, but as it is less than 15 minute's drive/train trip from Nice, is a far less expensive option than the city, or indeed places like Villefranche. Of course, that does limit your choice of dinner options if you want to walk somewhere, as the marina is pretty much all there is in Beaulieu (10 minute's walk from the hotel). But there are about 8-10 restaurants from which to choose, and we had pretty good food at the couple we ate at.
Our nicest meal, however, was from the pizza place just around the corner from the hotel on the main road, which we took back to our room. Yumm!
There is no parking at the property, but we managed to find car spots on the street on all four evenings (albeit, it always seemed to be the very last one!) within a block of the hotel.
The only other slight drawback is that the friendly owners have very limited English, but it is still better than my French, so we managed to communicate the basics!
The hotel is great value for this part of the world, and we would definitely stay here again.
