The hotel is stylish having enjoyed a recent makeover yet had character. The staff were friendly and helpful, the breakfast good if a bit expensive.
Was just able to squeeze in one night weekender with my wife, so flew to Nice and looked for place with the character of the old Riviera and picked Menton - 35 minutes from Nice Railway Station. However a great tip: you don't need to get a bus from the airport to Nice train station and then travel on the hot train where you often can't get a seat - there is a bus that goes from the airport T1 and has a request stop just by the door of this hotel So this really is a very good choice logistically for a quick break.
The location of the hotel has advantages and disadvantages. It is across the road the from the stunning beach, yet rooms are not noisy with windows closed/the ac works fine. You do need to know it is is a 15 minute walk from the heart of Menton. however it is a wonderful walk along the beach promenade and means it doesn't suffer the noise of the bars and restaurants closer to town.
