There were a dozen of us staying at the Ellington, and no-one had complaints. I had a deluxe room, in which the bed was extremely comfortable and noise was not a problem. Plumbing was fine with good bath/shower and plenty of hot water. Some rooms are around a central courtyard which I imagine could be noisy if a group like ours was sitting out late. Reception staff were helpful, although our bags were dropped off in the morning and we were told they would be moved into a secure area but they were still there when we returned after four hours - fortunately without any problems.
Location was excellent for walking to the old town for eating out or to the station for trips to Monaco or Cannes. Neither was particularly near, but the location was central and everything could be walked within 15 mins.
An arrangement is in place with a private beach, which is around 10 mins walk away, but be warned you still have to pay for loungers etc.
Breakfast was well presented with Cereals, Fruits, breads, cheese, meats, croissants, pain au chocolate etc etc. The hot breakfast was not voted as the best, but perhaps the French don't feel a Full English is their forte. There was scrambled egg and bacon etc. available.
Bar had happy hour 6-8pm with reasonable prices. Courtyard was very pleasant to sit out in to enjoy your drink, with comfortable chairs.
All in all a very good hotel for a city break in Nice.
