“Superb location, lovely hosts, excellent value for money”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

We stayed 4 nights in Cap Ferrat for a wedding, during the peak season. We really cannot emphasise enough what a fantastic location this is if you don't want to drive or catch taxis (which is not easy). It is central (but quiet) and one can walk to the public/private beaches easily; the many restaurants within 5 minutes; a superb Boulanger 1 minute away; and the lovely Cap Ferrat peninsula walk/run almost on the doorstep. The accommodation is basic, but very clean - however, since this was a wedding with friends, we didn't spend much time in the room, hence it was perfect. Many friends stayed in much more expensive hotels in Villefranche and Beaulieu, but L'oursin was the cheapest and certainly best located. The host (mother and son) were charming and very helpful. I absolutely recommend this hotel if you want a basic, clean, no frills hotel in a truly beautiful (and otherwise very expensive) location. A bargain.

Room Tip: One at the front if you don't mind paying a bit more.

We stayed at this charming hotel, and enjoyed the wonderful hospitality of the owner and her son. The lovliest people ! She even gave me a souvenir, an heirloom piece, I was very touched. I would highly recommend this hotel in the French Riviera. The room was very large and very comfortable

Their website is artfully crafted to make it seem like a quaint cute gem but really it's kind of dumpy. Good news is you are staying in an amazing and expensive part of France for pennies, but when it's 90 degrees out, it would be nice to have air conditioning. Also, this room was so small, I couldn't open my suitcase all the way, there's not enough room! I side stepped over to the window because the doorless mini fridge blocked the path. There was a bouquet of smells such as cigarettes, old vase water that needed to be changed and perhaps dog pee (?)
When I turned down the sheets, I discovered several hairs from a mystery person.

  • Liked — friendly staff, location, free wifi
  • Disliked — smokers, no ac, mini fridge doesnt work, bad lighting, smells weird
