After having been at various hotels throughout Europe, it was very refreshing to finally find a great hotel. From its location facing the ocean, near the center of town, to its friendly staff, to the beauty and comfort of tis rooms. The bathroom is very spacious and luxurious. You could sense the attention to detail when you enter the room. This could easily be a 5-star hotel. I was planning to stay only for one night, but after being in this hotel, I decided to extend my stay 3 more nights. It was wonderful! I was driving a brand new car I picked up in Europe, and having on site, secure parking was a plus. Make sure to ask for an Ocean-front room as the view of the ocean in the morning is amazing. Also, breakfast is great, either inside or at the garden, even if you may have to share it with a few birds ☺. Please, don’t forget to order omelet for breakfast, they make the best omelets in town. I would definitely stay again at Napoleon, and recommend it to friends.

Room Tip: Ask for an Ocean-Front room, and don't forget to order an Omelet for breakfast!

This was our second visit to this lovely hotel. Again chose to have a suite; it was a different one this time but just as wonderful as the first one we stayed in. The rooms were spotless and very comfortable.

The hotel is very welcoming and the staff both charming and efficient. A taxi was again organised by the hotel reception to collect us from and return us to the airport.

Guess what - we've already booked our suite or 2014!

We spent a night here and everything was just great. Would highly recommend. Staff in particular fantastic - very helpful, friendly and professional. Lovely modern, well equipped bedrooms and bathrooms too. With regard to previous comment on Trip Advisor - asked about the beach restaurant it doesnt actually belong to them - they sold it off a couple of years ago. I would however agree with previous comment that the hotel is on the outskirts of Menton near the marina - about 10 minutes walk to the prettiest part of Menton however - the old town. There is a bus stop just outside the hotel if you need to go any further. Very close to Menton Garavan station.
All in all - highly recommend. Small/medium hotel very well run.

Many thanks for the great review - and for pointing out that the Napoleon Beach no longer has anything to do with the hotel.

Our partner beach this year (and most probably next!) is the Festival Plage - reviewed elsewhere on this site.

Thanks again, and I look forward to welcoming you again to the Napoleon in the future!

We have stayed here and found it a perfectly pleasant hotel to stay in. However, this time we just stopped to have lunch at their beach restaurant and were most disappointed by the poor standard of the meal. My wife's portion of pasta was minimal and she got one scallop in a scallop and mushroom pasta. I got sand in my prawns and very dried-out calamari. Certainly poor value for money as well as being poor quality. Try the other restaurants nearby instead.

Your impressions of the Plage Napoleon are, unfortunately, similar to ours.

We sold the beach restaurant in 2011, and the experience we have had with the new owner led to us breaking commercial ties with them at the end of 2012. Unfortunately, they have so far retained the name. This will hopefully change in the near future, eliminating the obvious confusion with the hotel.

In 2013, we have had an agreement in place for hotel customers with the Festival Plage, which has been a real success. Our customers get a discount at the beach, and, more importantly, the ability to reserve via the hotel, and sign for their bills at the beach and its restaurant. We have had very good feedback this year with regards to service, quality of food and value.

I do hope that you will visit the hotel on your next time in Menton!

Stayed here for 3 nights. Clean. Friendly staff and family owned. Generally well maintained and most ocean facing rooms have been refurbished. Daily breakfast is nice - especially in the small back courtyard. Popular with tour groups, so one may encounter a periodic rush in common areas. Located about a 10 minute walk from the city center. There is a marina directly in front of the hotel which adds to charm, but necessitates a walk for beach access. Pool is very small, located in front of the hotel and not really an asset.
Menton traffic is insane in summer, so it's best to visit here in the off-season.

Room Tip: Ocean facing rooms are far superior to those in the rear of the building.

Hotel was well located with plenty of restaurants within a short walk. Staff friendly and helpful; rooms clean and fairly modern. Free parking in public car parks across the road (very limited spaces on site). Our room was small (had difficulty accessing the wardrobes positioned at the foot of the bed) and bathroom was very small. The 'over the bath' shower was not efficient - bathroom really not big enough for a bath, would have been better if it had just a good, walk-in shower. Free mini bar providing water and fruit juice - great idea. A lot of noise from the school/college at the back of the hotel. Our small balcony overlooked the area that the students gather in before/during/after sessions - l was awoken by this every morning. Breakfast was OK - fairly limited choice of foods on the buffet. Loved the freshly squeezed orange juice though. Ventured in to the pool once - was very cold. Pool area quite small and next to the busy road so a lot of traffic noise and limited seating available.

Room Tip: Select a sea view room if you want to avoid the student noise and have greater privacy, though you w...
