“Wonderful hosts!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2013

When we first arrived we were a little unsure about the positioning of the hotel....the distance from Villefranche, also the room was a little on the small side. But after spending 4 nights there, these small concerns were 'put to bed' by the hospitality of the hosts...in particular Frank. Nothing was too much trouble for him. He even gave us a lift to the train station for our journey home!! Local information, quieter beaches, Frank is a font of knowledge. Yes its a good 10 min walk to Villefrache and a couple of fairly steep banks to cope with, but we would return to this hotel in an instant.

Stayed July 2013, travelled as a couple

We stayed here for 5 nights and found it a wonderful experience. Franck and Joelle are very, very friendly hosts, and so are Mira their 11-year old golden retriever and (Deschis?) the little tabby!

We had the room facing the courtyard with a double bed and an extra single bed with ensuite bathroom. The bathroom is somewhat narrow for 2 persons but it isn't exactly small. Hot water pressure is rather low though! The bed was really firm and nice unlike what we'd mostly experienced before during our 3 month European vacation.

The room is always kept clean and although our room was just next to the garden nothing ever crept in. On a windy day you might wish to shut the door as leaves and debris can get through the door.

The trains run past the property directly but it was never loud enough to bother us. It stops in the early evening and then starts again at about half past five in the morning. Not an issue - we just slept peacefully throughout out stay.

Note that the property is a 15 minute walk to/from Beaulieu train station and Villafranche Sur Mer town. Bus 83 will take you directly to Èze but you'll need to catch this bus further away from the train station at Le Plage near the local harbour. This might be an issue for some who are not into walking too much. Buses to Nice and Monaco are convenient - just on the main road outside the hotel.

Joelle and Franck made me most welcome, from the moment i arrived to when i left. Two of the nicest people i have met in a long time, nothing too much trouble.
The room was clean and everything i could have needed, i had the budget room so the toilet and shower room weren't ensuite however that was not an issue and only used by me. The room has shutters which im sure helps to keep it cooler and though previous reviews have commented about the train noise it certainly wasn't an issue to me.
I had the breakfast which is 8euros and theres as much coffee or tea as you can drink, cereal, croissants/pain au chocolate all that is needed to start your day. You can sit in the garden or the conservatory area to eat and there a bar if you want a drink of an evening
You are close to Beaulieu and Villefranche and bus can take you into Monaco or Nice, so plenty to do or the beach if you want something more laid back. I'd say the beach was better at Villefranche but does get busy.
I shall be going back as suited me.

The location is great, you can go walking to the beach. The bedrooms are small, but comfortable enough for a beach resort. The brakfast is superb. It's very complete and it's served at a very nice brakfast room, besides a glassyard and a small garden. The hotel has a very friendly and relaxed character due to its owners personality. Franck and Joelle are incredibly nice and helpful. They really make you feel at home. I can't imagine a better place to go for its price. I would definitely recommend it, simply wonderful!!

My husband and I LOVED our stay here! Im surpeised its called a hotel as it seemed more like a B&B. The owners were some of the nicest we've ever had the pleasure of meeting. Helpful, friendly and laid back, they helped make our stay as relaxing as possible. The hotel was very clean too, which is always a plus. We stayed in the room by the garden and even though the train was passing a few times a day, it didnt bother us at all. When we stayed it was €10 for breakfast and I would say worth it....typical French, baguette, croissant, cheese, fruit, coffee, tea etc.
The hotel common areas were decorated with furniture that looked to be from Asia and the rooms were quite comfortable and relaxing so I had no problem taking my laptop and a glass of wine and just hanging around as it was a bit rainy when we visited. We dont live too far away and so we will surely stay here again.

Having stayed in this little gem the last 3 years and looking at flights for this year i thought i should put my "love" in print.
if maybe a little tricky to find at first,the Hotel Patricia is in a great location to either base yourself for exploring the whole area or just for walking around Villefranche,Beaulieau and Cap Ferrat.
The rooms are basic but very clean, owners are a delight and breakfast a joy to eat in the garden.

Room Tip: the "balcony room" has a "sea view"

This hotel is located (ideally) between Cap Ferrat and Villefranche-sur-Mer. You can walk around the beautiful coastline to the Old Town in about 20 minutes. This hotel reflects its owners, Frank and Joelle who are warm, friendly and welcoming hosts - but they also run a very professional hotel with parking and a superb French-style breakfast. If you get the chance go for the room with the balcony. It overlooks the lovely cool courtyard (where you can take breakfast) and beyond to the Bay. Lovely comfortable bed dominates the room. The hotel is difficult to find, but just ring and ask Frank - he'll tell you how to get there, no problem. And as the last reviewer says, its an affordable price for this part of France. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and would we go back? You Bet!

Room Tip: The room with the balcony for its wonderful outlook.
