“ups and downs”
Reviewed 18 July 2011

Owners extremely helpful and friendly eg supplying us with beach mats and parasol. Hotel is quaint, very basic with small rooms and our stay of five nights was too long. for quality of accommodation. Ten minute steep walk to rocky beach and it is closer to Beaulieu than Villefranche....still a very enjoyable time - lazy breakfasts in the rustic garden - i will return

We stayed for 3 nights in mid June. The hosts were lovely and helpful. They even drove us to the train station at the end of our stay. This hotel is more of a bed and breakfast than a traditional hotel. Our room was very small and the bathroom was added into the bedroom. It was very inexpensive and I think a great value for the price. A couple of things to note: Get good directions about how to find it. We had alot of difficulty and took almost 3 hours with baggage in tow to get there. Be warned that the trains run right behind it. It did not bother us, but I had earplugs for nighttime. Ask Frank and Joelle for ideas about where to go and eat. They gave us excellent suggestions and called and made dinner reservations for us.

Room Tip: There is a room with a balcony that you can ask for.

The hotel is very simple but clean and pleasant. We found the hosts extremely helpful, as other reviewers have noted. They helped us take the bus and train and gave us directions to Eze and to the airport during a time when some of the roads were closed for passing dignitaries. They even gave us a Michelin map.
They spoke good English. They were also very easy to correspond with by e-mail.
Breakfast was extra, but very good, including a large round of brie cheese.
We stayed in the room nearest the front door and didn't even hear the train. The walks to Villefranche and to Beaulieu were both easy (the hotel is between the two towns). We were told we could have a fan if we needed it, but it was cool enough we didn't. (We actually stayed in May, but I'm just now getting around to write. It's such a nice place I wanted to say something about it.)

Room Tip: room nearest front door has no train noise,

The room was very, very small and nothing like what was on their website nor the pictures they posted as you entered the hotel. The only place to open your suitcase was on the bed, there was barely room to walk at all. The commuter trains sound like they are coming right through your room. They run until 11:30 and start again at 6:15. The one window in the room you could only open half of it as the hinge is missing from the other half. Our room had electrical power from two souces and it went out three times in a short period which they couldn't figure out and we just didn't use those lights, a little inconvenient. We were to stay two nights but we left the next morning. The room was clean and the couple are friendly but I wouldn't recommend it nor stay their again.

It´s cheap, it´s clean, breakfast is good, free parking, free wifi. The owners are a very nice couple who gave us many tips about the region. You can walk to Cap Ferrat or drive to Nice and Monaco easily. It was excelent for us, no problem at all!!

My husband and I, along with my brother and his wife, stayed at the Hotel Patricia for three nights. It was the first three nights of our 16-day journey through the country of France. There was no better way for us to start our vacation. At the Hotel Patricia you are made to feel more like a guest in someone's home rather than a guest in a hotel/motel. The service is very personal. Even though some visitors may feel the rooms are small, what is most important to us is how very clean the rooms and ensuite bathrooms were. We were very content with our accomodations and would stay here again if we found ourselves in the part of France again. The breakfast each morning was wonderful. We enjoyed our evening walks from the Hotel into Villefrance-sur-Mer for dinner. This is a great location for any time spent in the French Riviera. Very centrally located, but not in the hustle and bustle of the larger city of Nice nearby.

Room Tip: Best room: 2nd floor w/balcony

We've just returned from a super-relaxing 8 days at this lovely little pension. Franck and Joelle (along with their adorable retriever Mira!) run a friendly, laid back and stylish little B&B in the charming French Riviera resort of Villefranche. They're helpful and informative and carry all the usual leaflets and info on local attractions that you will need. The continental breakfast is excellent and can be taken in the pretty enclosed garden complete with lemon tree. They even have a small bar and welcomed us with a couple of very welcome cold beers when we arrived! Our bed was very comfy and the room, which had ensuite toilet and shower, was well appointed and spotless and was cleaned/beds made every day. There's no aircon but at that price what do you expect? It didn't affect our sleep anyway as the room was cool enough and there is a fan in the room if you need it. It's a pleasant 15 minute walk into the old town of Villefranche but an even shorter walk into Beaulieu Sur Mer which we found had the better beach. Equally nearby is St Jean Cap Ferrat. The train station at Beaulieu is 10 minute walk away and has a good sized supermarket right next door. Loads of places to eat and drink in Beaulieu and Villefranche. Three handy tips when eating in any of the restaurants - 1. ask for 'une carafe d'eau' to get free, chilled (and perfectly tasty) tap water instead of expensive bottled water, and 2. for wine, ask for 'un pichet du vin rouge/blanc/rose' to get the house wine which is always decent, rather than the more expensive named and bottled variety - pichets come in small and large sizes up to 1litre. 3. most restaurants do a 'menu' - set priced with either one or two courses which are better value than eating from the carte. The whole area is very affluent, gorgeous and fascinating. Nellcote, the house where the Rolling Stones recorded Exile on Main Street, is literally round the corner on the next street down. We saw the most jaw-dropping fireworks off Cap Ferrat one night to mark the annual Venetian Ball and lost count of Bentleys, Rollers, Aston Martins, Ferraris etc but you really don't need that kind of money to have a wonderful time on the Riviera if you stay at this place! Perfect in every way and we really hope we can go back soon.
