If I was judging this place by the staff only, it would get top marks. They were very helpful and friendly throughout my stay. It is a beautiful hotel and very close the the Canne la Boca train station (you can't hear it but it can take you to Cannes, Nice, Monaco etc). We were initially put in a room that had just been painted so I asked to move and they put us in a beautiful room that really made our trip special. A great place but unfortunately had very few quests when we stayed so there is no night life at all in the restaurant or bar. Maybe a bad time of year.

Room Tip: Room 3 was beautiful. As big as the ocean view ones on the top floor but way cheaper

... for those who want to enjoy the sea and not the crowds on the beach. The hotel is uphill from the beach (10 min walk along a quiet street) and as it is on the outskirts of Cannes, the beach is almost deserted in mid-September. But it is a wonderful beach - sandy throughout, perfectly clear water (and warm even in end-September - +22C), showers every 50 meters. The only thing you may need to buy (if staying on the beach for the whole day) is an umbrella (EUR 15), as this part of the beach is purely public - so no sunbeds or umbrellas are provided. However, for those not minding a lot of sunbathing neighbours, these are easily found 200m towards the city - but at a price of EUR25 for a pair of sunbeds and an umbrella. The hotel provides beach towels free of charge, and also has a nice swimming pool.
The hotel itself is a boutique-type (some 30 rooms altogether), and is very well run. You really feel like you are in a village - such a nice escape in the evenings after touring busy, crowded cities of Cote d'Azur! At that, it is just 10 min drive by bus from the centre (20-25 min walk). Bus stop is halfway to the beach (4min), and buses run every 15 min (EUR1.50 one-way). Another way to get to Cannes centre and easily explore the entire Cote d'Azur (from Frejus and St Raphael in the West to Antib, Nice and Monaco in the East) is by TER from Cannes La Bocca TER Gare (train station). It is only 5-7min walk from the hotel. TER trains run very frequently (every 30 min on average in the mornings, evenings and on week-ends, ~ every hour during working days). Cost of DayTravel ticket (hop-on/hop-off type, unlimited number of trips in 24 hours throughout the entire Cote d'Azur) is just EUR 15! With such a deal you can forget about hiring a car. Just not worth it!
The hotel is also easily reachable from Nice airport - either walk 10 min to Nice StAugustin TER station and travel to Cannes LaBocca station, then 5 min walk to the hotel, or get on a Nice-Cannes extress bus (stops at Terminal 1 and 2, runs every 30 min), and when in Cannes take either Bus #1 or #2 (stops are 30 meters from where you get off the express), or a taxi (EUR 10).
To summarise - we found this hotel perfectly located to enjoy all the bustling cities of the Cote (by TER), have a relaxing beach-sea vacation as well - and at the same time to be away from the crowds when you want to have a quiet night.

We arrived at 8.30pm & were greeted by a helpful staff at Reception who patiently explained the room facilties, restaurant services for dinner & breakfast. What a great change to the arrogant Italian hospitality!

Rooms were small were were tastefully furnished to blend into the Chateau's environment. The toilet was separate from the bathroom, there was free WIFI & tea/coffee making facility.

We opted to have the 3-course set menu at 39 Euros, & were again greeted & served by the friendly maitre'd & waiters. Our group had Salmon Gravalax or Pate for entrees, Duck or Mullet Fillets for mains & the Souffle for dessert. We thoroughly enjoyed this dinner which was set beside the pool facing the manicured garden.

Breakfast was just superb with freshly made thin crepes, eggs to order, bacon, French breads, pastries & yoghurts, freshly squeezed fruit juices & aromatic coffee. All staff were helpful & friendly.

When we packed & left 2 days later, the lady at Reception came to the car to bid us farewell. What a great difference from the Italian hosts of the past 10 days!

Yes, I did read the negative comments in relation to this facility, but was glad we had a most enjoyed weekend. We will certainly return to the Chateau.

Chateau de la Tour represent a traditional hotel, almost as owned by a family. Been there several times for business. Although the location is not a good one (if you want to attend any event in Palais de Festival), the hotel is very near to the Plage du Midi, and the surrounding area is very nice. The breakfast is very good and also the staff are friendly and helpful. The pool is relatively big and located in the middle of the garden. The view is relaxing and peaceful.

Had stayed here for 3 nights with 8 people in 4 rooms for a long WE in August. The hotel is charming and first class. Service is smooth and kind, and the waitress makes excellent coctails while enjoying the sun on the swimming pool deck. Location is good if you don't mind some walking to the beach or to town. Possible with a car as well but sommertime traffic in Cannes is tough.
