We had 5 nights in this lovely hotel, well situated for all amenities and bus/trains. Staff were all highly efficient, very accommodating and friendly. The breakfast was more than adequate, in a pleasant breakfast room.

Don’t expect high-class accommodations, but this place offers everything real people need; cleanliness, friendliness and acceptable rates. Plus, it has a fine Japanese restaurant that serves delicious Sushi and great tasting traditional cuisine.

We are expats in Switzerland for many years and still cannot get enough of mountain chalet style. We loved Ecureuil for traditional décor, for spacious rooms, for peace and quiet despite central location. Train/bus station , mountain train, shops and restaurants are a few steps away. Perfect for skiing and for summer hiking as well. Our friends had a room... More

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 The room is out of date but if the olden style is your thing...then that is ok.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.

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

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
