In the midst of an overcrowded and hectic setting (the Cote d'Azur), a wonderful haven of peace. We met several staff - all of them wonderfully friendly and helpful; it was clear that they all took enormous pride in what they offered. Our room was (I think) standard rather than superior and was fairly small but had been cunningly designed to maximise storage. Provision of a kettle, mugs, tea etc was something we had rarely experienced in France before. We faced the road (which of itself was fairly quiet) but the double glazing kept out all noise. The air conditioning worked very well - quiet enough to keep on at night. Breakfast was excellent - good coffee, a lovely selection of bread plus the usual selection of fruit, jams, etc. There is a boulangerie a stones' throw away and a range of restaurants are about 10 minutes walk at the marina. The building itself is full of character and we loved the décor, especially the models and pictures of sail boats. Anything not to like? Well, there IS a car park but the site means it is quite small and is gated. Important to note that you really need to book your space but it's also really good that there is no charge - at other hotels in the area we had been charged quite a lot for car parking. On arrival, we missed the gate and sailed into a gated compound next door from which we had to extricate ourselves! Best as you arrive to pull onto the pavement outside the hotel, report and get the code for the gate. And there is no lift. We had to get two suitcases up to the second floor and were not offered any help. A small matter - but once you are installed, just enjoy a lovely time in a lovely place
