The location is fantastic. We got the bus from the airport and it dropped us at the end of the road (look out for a restaurant called Cocodile) and get off there. The hotel is 15 mins from the old town and 1 min to the beach!
Hotel and Staff:-
The staff were very helpful and friendly. We couldn't check in until 3pm so left our bags in a side room. The hotel is nicely decorated.
Supermarket opposite which sells most things and is reasonably priced. We had breakfast included and it was mainly croissants, yoghurt, fruit, toast, cereal etc.
The room was nice but quite small. The wardrobe was so narrow it wasn't wide enough for a coat hanger! There was a small table too. The toilet was separate to the shower room. Both quite small but OK. I think we had a standard room. The TV had about 20 channels but only BBC news in English.
We ate in the old town, at Cocodile, Jardins du Capitole and the Davisto Italian nearby. All were fantastic but quite expensive! Most waiters can speak some English but its probably advisable to greet them and order in French where possible. A meal for 2 (just main course and only 1 of us drinking) usually came to around £60.
We went at the beginning of October and it was about 20 degrees C and sunny most days.
We would recommend the bus tour which is hop on hop off and about £21 pp.
We also went to Monaco on the train which was fun. Return ticket pp about £7 (there's not a lot of English at the train station so remember your phrase book!)
