I booked 9 ngt trip to Nice france for My husband and I for the end of June with Fleetway at a fantastic price for flights and hotel inclusive. The Mercure Notre Dame hotel was situated just around the corner from fantastic shopping on the main Jean Le Medicin avenue and only a 5 minute walk from train station where you are only and hour fom Cannes, half and hour from monaco, a few more minutes into Italy and lots of beautiful coastal places in between. A 10 minute leisurely stroll to the old town of Nice and the beach (very pebbley). Been to Nice a few times but this hotel the best for the price. Fantastic hot and cold selection buffet breakfast. The rooftop pool was lovely (although unheated) but gorgeous solarium with bar alongside for drinks and lunch. The room was very nice and clean, (not huge but adequate) minibar, tv etc. The bathroom was excellent with body lotion , shower gels, shampoo every day (no need to pack those) The beautiful cathedral was on the corner lit up at night. There is always something going on in Nice, ideal for all ages,and beautiful weather and scenery. Eating out is not too cheap by my local town standards (South Yorkshire) We were given a free room upgrade on arrival without request as Fleetway guests and would highly recommend this hotel for its quality and position and fleetway travel for the arrangements.
