“Wonderful friendly hotel”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

Beautiful well run clean and welcoming hotel in a lovely area across the road from the beach with wonderful views a short walking distance from a number of restaurants. Staff more than helpful. A perfect way to relax.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a sea view.. perfect.

This hotel is a good walk from town (20mins or so) and set on the noisy promenade road opposite a tiny pebbly beach.
Sleep quality was ok but A/C a little noisy, room clean but decor a little old. We had a ground floor sea view room although the noise from the road spoils this.
Car parking is an issue, we parked ours on the side of the road although apparently there is a pay parking a short walk from the hotel.
Service was efficient and to the point but not exactly friendly.
Breakfast ample with a good choice.
Train station 15 mins walk with frequent trains to Monaco, Nice etc although on our visit there was a general transport strike across France which made our planned evening visit to Monaco impossible (taxi fees to Monaco are excessive).
Probably wouldn't choose to stay here again but the old town of Menton is worth a visit for a few hours.

I'm not one for writing reviews but the service at this hotel was the best customer service I have ever experienced & I felt I had to write a review. From the moment we arrived the reception was more than helpful, the rooms were spotless & up to date & even had a lovely little sunbathing area. The hotel was in a perfect position for Menton or getting to & from Monte Carlo, with the Monaco/Airport bus dropping off just yards up the road.
My friend fell ill & had to be rushed to hospital, the staff at the hotel were fantastic, I asked for the room to be cleaned & it was done within the hour...they even ordered pizza & drinks for us for when we returned from hospital as my friend was too unwell to leave the hotel.
If you're wanting to see Monaco without the expensive hotel cost this hotel is perfect.

Room Tip: The Airport & Monte Carlo bus stops just yards from the hotel. When telling the driver which ho...

This hotel was a joy. Right across from the promenade, Medeterranean,and pebble beach. The hotel was clean, well appointed, great breakfasts, bar, gardens, outdoor restaurant with excellent seafood. Ask for a room with a balcony. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. 10 minute walk to the old town or the Cocteau Museum. Another restaurant on the water a few steps to the east off the pro evade

We loved Menton and the Prince de Galles hotel was exceptional. We could nearly jump into the Mediterranean from our balcony overlooking the sea. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast fantastic. Both Menton and the hotel tick all the boxes, its on the French Riviera but without all the glitz of Cannes or Nice. There is also a local bus that takes you to Monaco, Eze and Nice all for about 2 euro. There are lots of beachside restaurants to walk for dinner.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a view, you won't regret it.

We left today our 5 days vacation in this hotel.
Our room was perfect as requested, with any noise, really beautiful.
The staff was amazing, the receptionists, the restaurant crew , all of them were very kind and helpful.
The hotel is 1 km distant from the centre of Menton but with a beautiful promenade.
The restaurant was really perfect.
Definitely nothing to complain about this beautiful hotel behind the beach.

Firstly, this hotel is lovely. It is right on the sea front, the staff are wonderful and the hotel offers far more than many others.They will provide you with fresh beach towels daily and tea/coffee making facilities for your room. The towels in you room are changed daily and the bedding a couple of times a week. The rooms have very effective air-conditioning. We had a mountain view room; very spacious and we heard very little noise from inside/outside the hotel. My daughter is working in Menton in another hotel and she said that it is one of the best hotels in Menton. Some points to note: ask for a renovated room, they are lovely, the ones that haven't been renovated yet are clean, but old and tired, they are due to be done with the next year. The receptionists are very friendly and helpful and speak English. All in all a lovely stay. It is a 20 minute stroll into the centre of Menton, it can seem a long way if you are weary but it is a lovely walk along the seafront. Would definitely return.

Room Tip: Ask for a renovated room. The sea views at the front of the hotel are wonderful but the rooms at th...
