Upon checking in we were immediately upgraded to a superior room which was appreciated. The bed was a super king and the room a good size. There was also a balcony which got the afternoon sun.
The location is fantastic - less than a minute's walk to the beach/croisette. A good selection at breakfast (pastries/croissants/fruit/cereal/yogurt/bacon, eggs etc) and helpful staff.
Our room was on the second floor, and although there was no noise from the street, we did get woken from the room upstairs, the walls are quite thin - this is the only negative point.
Overall, very good value hotel and will be staying there for our trip next year.
On a seperate note regarding Cannes, we hired a moped for approx 45 euro for the day and drove along the coastline to Monaco stopping off at Juan Le Pins, Antibes & Nice. I thoroughly recommend this if you dont want to hire a car. Another tip is to book the Cannesexpress shuttle bus to and from the airport - only 20 euro each way! Very reliable.
