Reviewed September 15, 2012

Very central location, within 5 mins of shops and restaurants. Room quite small but adequate if you are out all day. We had as all terrace with table. Breakfast adequate - fresh fruit, yogurts, croissants, ham and cheese, bread and home made jams. Friendly owner and staff. Free parking at front of hotel.

We spent one night during the beginning of the summer season. The hotel was almost completely empty. The room was comfortable and quite big, breakfast was very good. Service went from apathetic to good (stuff was preparing for the busy season).

We first stayed at l'Ecurieul in 2007 and returned this year for a mid-week ski break. The position for us is spot-on: close to the bus stop (for getting to and from Nice) and to both a drag lift and the main cable car (we havn't encountered queues for either), while not being on the (possibly a bit noisy) main square. Both times we've had reasonably sized, scrupulously clean rooms with pleasant views (once on the lower ground floor looking towards the ski area, once on the first floor looking the other way). There's a comprehensive self service buffet at breakfast, although the residents' menu at dinner is quite simple (but tasty and well cooked) and the wood fire makes the lounge a pleasant place to be after dinner or if the weather is against you. Taking advantage of the Pack Privelege promoted by the Tourist Office makes it excellent value and you don't even have to queue for your lift pass!

Nice simple rustic Hotel, the nearest decent to the base of Col de la Bonnette, typical alpine furnishings, friendly service and fair prices. Good food. The col de la Bonnette is open for a few months each summer and at 2802m high is well worth a hoon (see picture). Look out for the Marmots though, they're great for a bit of no strings attached holiday shenanigans, but before you know it they're on the blower at 2am in tears claiming to be up the duff...

Nice Hotel, friendly owner, I will definitely be back !

We visited for one night this week and found a very good welcome from a couple who work endlessly to do the best for their clients. The hotel room was not luxurious but had everything we needed and it was very clean and comfortable. We scouted around for restaurants for dinner but discovered that the one in the hotel was as good or better than most. They were welcoming to our dog and went out of their way to be pleasant.
