                        Overall good but very expensive for the type of accommodation provided.A seperate hairdryer in the room with a mirror would be an advantage.

                        great location. fantastic building, was clearly a spectacle in its day

                        rooms were of shocking quality. did not match up to the pictures on the web. staff tried their hardest to move rooms but were in-effective, because al the remaining rooms were terrible. Not competitve on a world stage. would not return

                        The room, very clear with the sea view, the big bathroom, the express breakfast formula

                        absence of glass or curtain to close the bath (to avoid too much water outside when using it)

                        Hotel Westminster was a beautiful hotel with lots of character and very elegent. The location of the hotel was perfect - right on the sea front. The bedrooms were very modern and tasteful in a traditonal type of way. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. It was also in a central position and handy for all transport and restaurants etc.

                        It was well located. The linen was clean.

                        The hotel is in need of refurbishment. The room was very small and it had a really bad smell . We complained about the smell and a maid was sent to spray the room but it didn't help. The air conditioning sounded like a noisy fridge and the sound proofing was terrible which considering it is located on a busy road meant we did not get a good nights sleep . I would not stay at the hotel again and I am sure one can find better in Nice!

                        We are English speaking and had some difficutlies with departures from the train station at Nice. At the last minute we needed to book air travel and your staff helped us translate and confirm reservations on line. Without their advice and help we could not have completed this transaction. The other thing is that BOTH employees who helped us were trainees. That speaks very well of the quality of personnel the Wesminster hires. I would not hesitate to recommend your hotel to others who are travelling in Nice or the area.

                        space in room was limited for 2 people

                        Good location by the Promenade Anglais, and central in Nice at the same time.

                        1) We were highly disapppointed at the size of our double room. It was far too small, due to a previous division of good rooms. This does not keep Westminster as a four-star hotel any longer. 2) And the hotel direction had managed to set å rather huge mini-bar with a television upon it right at the entrance so that this installation blocked passage with luggage. The minibar should be instead in the right corner by the bed. The flat-screen TV should hang on the wall, instead of dominating the tiny place. 2) What also met us right in the entrance, was a huge, grey metallic floor-based aircondition from the 1970-ies. It was noisy, and it did noot keep the rooom cool in July either. There have long been modern, non-noise air-cons available to hang high on the walls (over the wardrobe in this case). With the rather high prices the direction asks for rooms as Westminster - why have they not installed these years ago? 3) Inside the wardrobe we met a cheap, unstable and unfitted installation. 4) We checked the average room-sizes in the hotel from the drawing of our floor which was on our door. Almost all of them were on our size. In the brochure however, which the direction also had placed in the room, they state that the hotel 'will offer you spacious, comfortable, modern and luxurious rooms'. We believed this, but it simply was not true.

                        Excellent food, 50+ tv channels including 12 English (BBC1,2,3,4,ITV1,2,Channel5, cbbc, bbc News, Sky News, cnn, cnbc) and high speed wifi and wired internet in room. Very convenient location. Effective air conditioning in room.

                        Older style hotel, room a bit tired, noisy air con unit in room.

                        Large spacious room in a fabulous location with views over the mediteranean sea. Large and very comfortable king size bed. Very Clean with quality linens.

                        Old hotel that has seen grander days. Is very tired and in need of some tlc. Hairdryer in our room was broken. Walls in rough shape. No shower curtain resulted in a very wet bathroom.

                        The location of Hotel Westminster is perfect for beach, shopping, restaurants, and access to the old town area.

                        The shower in our room was poorly located and designed. As you entered the room the glass enclosed shower was directly to your left, next to the entry way and before the sleeping area. The glass door to the shower was difficult to open, perhaps to create a seal to prevent water from overflowing from inside the shower. This did not work! Everytime the water was turned on the base of the shower leaked all over the carpeting in the entry way. We needed to use bath towels to soak up the water that escaped. The carpeting was always damp. In addition, the grey carpeting near the bed had a stain, as if bleach had spilled on it. This, along with the damp carpeting, made the room less appealing.

                        Great location, good Nice hotel right on the foreshore.restaurant in the Hotel was excellent. There continental breakfast while complimentary is unfortunately dismal.The shopping was excellent with some first class quality shops just near the hotels.

                        They need to review their continental breakfast.Cereal is considered continental by most. Cereal is considered full breakfast at Westminster.

                        Some areas are a little dated however the hotel appears to be being re- freshed on a floor by floor basis.

                        I liked the location of the hotel ,they have their own beach and all of nice is easily reached by foot!

                        For a hotel in that price range I would have liked to have some bedroom slippers a magnifying mirror in the bathroom.my bedroom was not made up until the afternoon.
