We stayed for 6 nights and had a 3rd floor privilege room overlooking the old port - worth the extra money. It is a family-run hotel with friendly staff who appear to stay with the hotel and remembered us from previous visits. The room is delighful with full length opening windows. The location is ideal - only a few minutes walk from the train and bus stations, and the boat service to the Lerins.
Two mnor complaints. Half way through our trip they began to refurbish the rooms above and there was some noise problem when we wanted to use the room in the middle of the one rainy day. This is a difficult issue for hotels but I think they tried their best to minimise the disturbance.
Second - most places have stopped charging for Wi Fi. However, it is available free in the cafe below!
