IDEAL TOURING BASE
Posted Jun 13, 2014 on Hotels
The Ubaye Valley and surrounding mountains are scenically one of the most spectacular in the Alpes Maritimes and the area offers attractions and activities for all the family, both in winter and summer. The Bel Air is an ideal base for one's stay, and while the welcome is great one must remember that one is staying in a two-star hotel and mark accordingly. Certainly, it doesn't live up to the 5 stars that many guests give it, especially when compared to hotels that cost many times the modest fees that this hotel asks. Luxury is sparse, noise insulation between rooms is poor, and the adjoining road makes for a disturbed night. But one cannot criticise the genuine welcome that one is given, which makes one feel very much at home. The room was clean, the bed was firm yet comfortable and the breakfast was very filling - just what one needs for a day in the mountains. Among two star hotels, the Bel Air is excellent and I would certainly return.
