We arrived on a Friday afternoon for a 1 night stay. Having checked on tripadv and booking.com review scores, decided on this hotel. However, it is too over priced for what is on offer. The room is out of date but if the olden style is your thing...then that is ok. Carpet was a kind of rough synthetic material more... More

Having stayed at the Chalet RoyalAlp earlier in the ski season (only because we got a good deal), we recognized that Ecureuil was going to be a bit of a step down. That having said, it was quite a step. Overall, it's a bit of a mixed bag. I can see why people would stay here, but I'm not sure... More

This is an excellent place for simple and traditional Swiss accomodation in the wonderful town on Villars. Well placed for a the ski train up the mountain ( genuinely a three minute stroll) the accomodation was generous, clean, charming owner, simple breakfasts and great value in the face of the Swiss Franc v GB Pound onslaught. Dont go if want... More

We visited Villars for a wedding and just wanted somewhere quiet and comfortable for a long weekend. The hotel staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and the service was excellent. Breakfast in the room was a real treat. Having such a good sized room with a huge balcony was a blessing - because the weather was unseasonably bad. From talking... More

We stayed here with friends in January, really impressed. Huge room, very clean and well equipped. Ours on top floor had fantastic views over the whole valley and mountains with great south facing balcony. Kitchen well equipped. Breakfast delivered on the dot to our room every morning. Friendly owners. Would definitely go again. Heated boot stand in shared locker room.... More

Feel at home at this well run and well kept small chalet-hotel with extremely sweet staff and hospitable and friendly owner. Cozy, wood-pannelled rooms with plenty of space, a bit old fashioned in the good traditional Swiss way, but very well maintained and very clean and comfortable. Extremely good value with breakfast served in the room- there's a smal dining... More

I cannot rave enough about this cozy, clean, family-owned/run establishment. Gorgeous views, quiet, HUGE room, super-sweet staff and great price sums it up. Beds were so comfy, kitchen, dining area and living room perfectly sized and stocked. Huge bathtub to relax in. Great, long balcony to dine on. Their restaurant is nonsmoking which is refreshing if you've been through the... More

Stayed at Ecureuil for a ski trip this winter. The proprietor offers a clean, comfortable room for a good price. A few things to note: 1) Yes, the B&B has Internet access, but you can't get it from your room. You have to use an older Mac in the lobby, and the connection is slow. Expect to pay by the... More
