« Nice pleasant stay »
Situated about 25 min drive from Nice airport, the hotel is away from the hussle of the main city. The hotel is modern, clean and inviting. Check in process was easy and getting around the hotel is simple.
It's best to have a car if you're staying at this hotel as most locations (Valbonne, Mougins, Cannes, Grasse) are about a 10-20 mins drive away.
The rooms are nice and clean. Bathroom was large with rainfall shower and toilet was separated in its own cubicle. They provided a cot bed for our 2 year old which she seemed to enjoy.
Pool is nice, little chilly once the sun goes down and not a huge amount of sunbeds available.
We didn't eat at the restaurant, only ordered drinks and fries which were decent but a little pricier given it's a hotel.
Other thing to be aware of is booking a taxi. We decided to leave the car back one night so we could all drink in Valbonne. They ordered a taxi for us which ended up being a chauffeured vehicle who charged us €35 for the 10 minute journey. We had to wait 20 mins for it too. Best to avoid and try to Uber it instead or use a metered taxi instead.
Also, we had asked about a late check out prior to booking and was assured it was 2pm. However, on the final day we double checked only to be informed that it would cost an extra €20 per room, which was not disclosed to us at the time of enquiry.
Overall, good for a short break.

« Fantastic stay!!! »
We stayed for six nights at the hotel and it was really amazing. We are a family of four and always look for a spacious family room where we all fit (as the kids are still small for us to stay in separate rooms) and Golden Tulip definitely delivered. We stayed in their junior suite with big terrace and it also came with a kitchenette which was really convenient.
Hotel is located about 30min from Nice and closest beach and we had a car so if we wanted to head into the city it went pretty quick. They have free parking and plenty of space to leave your car. They also have a lovely pool, tennis court and space for the kids to roam around. The interiors are stunning so modern and fresh which you can't find at many hotels in this area.
The rooms are gorgeous and really fresh. The shower is so big and amazing!! Beds comfortable and the sofa bed kids slept on was also super comfy. They also offer free wifi throughout the hotel with hassle free log in.
We dined at the restaurant once and were not overly impressed with their dinner buffet however other guests who had breakfast at the hotel enjoyed it. We opted for restaurants outside the hotel as we wanted to explore the area instead.
The staff is lovely and they speak English really well. My son lost his Nintendo Switch in the hotel and they were really quick to find it and return to us - he was really happy! There is a Nespresso coffee machine in the room as well which is a plus however only four capsules are for free if you want to have more you will be charged 1 euro per capsule.
Definitely a hotel I would recommend and a place we definitely will be back to!

« Good, very good »
We had meeting in the area so decided to spend a few days and nights here before flying out of Nice a few days later.
Turned out to be a great decision - as although this hotel is not really a holiday location as such ( well, not for a beach holiday ) as it is in the middle of the business area, you'd never know it. But its an excellent choice if you're looking for a base for visiting the Cote d'Azur. All the well known tourist places like Nice, Cannes, Antibes, Mougins, Grasse are within a 30 minute drive.
The staff, the room, the not-really-expensive restaurant were all excellent, and especially the bed which was about as good as it gets. And special mention of the towels ( yeah, I know....) which were huge and good quality compared to normal hotel towels, plus the massive and free issue pool towels.
And a nice touch was to allow us to stay until a 15.00 check-out for just an extra €20, so we were able to enjoy four or five hours around the pool and then a refreshing shower on a very, very hot day before the evening flight from Nice.
Add the good size pool, a tennis court, the nice gardens and the outside dining area, and depending on the price you pay, and the Tulip could be an absolute bargain for the combination of its high quality rooms and facilities, and its location.

« Great value 1 year old »
Location is not near main tourist hotspots. Reception staff were excellent and spoke English. Helpful and friendly. Simple, modern facilities and very efficient. Nice spa area. Highly recommended since other hotspots for tourism was expensive and very old properties. Bed was excellent firmness. Pillows were soft. Temperature control was very good. Space was limited but we'll designed. Bathroom was excellent. A small outdoor area is available. Great value for new property. Clean and well design for limited space. Modern decor. Excellent responsive staff. Get away from the tourist rip off areas. Yes you will need to drive around but better than feeling you wasted your time and money in regular tourist areas.
