Firstly the location is ideal, a short walk to the public beach (opposite Hotel Martinez) and across from Rue D'Antibes. Secondly the accomodation is kept at an impeccable standard, the rooms are classically decorated and are a size ideally suited for a family. It offers a fully functioning kitchen and comfortable sofa beds that our 2 children enjoyed. Breakfast was lovely and the open bar from 6pm - 8pm was a wonderful surprise, a great way the either wind down or spoil yourself before dinner. Lastly and the best character of Villa Garbo is the staff, manager Johan supported by Elena and Chantelle take real pride in welcoming you as a house guest rather than a customer giving the property a sense of a home away from home and an air of relaxation and exclusivity. They went above and beyond to make us feel part of the 'family' providing local knowledge and assistance no matter the time. We would absolutely visit again for it would feel like seeing old friends.

Last week we stayed at Villa Garbo for 6 nights and we really enjoyed it a lot. We had a one-bedroom suite with plenty of room, a nice layout and a very nicely finished interior.
The staff was classy, very friendly and extremely helpful. The hotel also provided parking space for our car, which is a big plus in Cannes.
The concept is not a classical hotel but a villa with a range of apartments. Only breakfast is provided as a meal. In this Covid-19 era of course it was not served buffet-style, but we could order classical things, all very nice.
An interesting touch is that at night they serve included drinks from 6 to 8 pm. We invariably had these and also the breakfast on the terrace outside. The only drawback is that the garden is close to a main road with a busy roundabout and that you could hear traffic noise all the time, outside only, not in our apartment. Actually this is the case for most hotels at de Côte d'Azur.
We can only recommend this place very much.

This was our second stay at this lovely boutique hotel. Very central for Le Croissette and the main shopping, restaurant areas.
Lovely room with small kitchen area.
The staff were helpful and on hand for all our needs.
It is a very safe place to stay as it has a gate for entry with a key fob and so no outsiders can wander in. All Covid rules were being applied and you could have your breakfast delivered to your room or sit on the terrace which was perfect in the early morning.
They will organise a lounger for you and a towel at one of the many places on the beach.
Thank you Johanne and all your staff for a really relaxed stay.

Villa Garbo would not honour booking as promised beware booking here

753469611

We had stayed at Villa Garbo a few years ago and had another booking booked with them which was pre paid but due to the sudden bereavement of my Father in law we had to postpone our booking. We telephoned the hotel a number of weeks before our arrival date and the owner promised us that we could take our booking in the future when we were ready to travel abroad again.

When some time after we contacted the hotel they firstly ignored our emails and we even had to email their sister hotel Le Cavendish to even get any response at all.

The owners Mr and Mrs Welter informed us not very politely that they would not honour our booking and made it very clear and wanted to charge us an even higher rate for any future booking.

We were extremely surprised and disappointed by such poor customer service especially due to the circumstances on this occasion and as previous customers to their both hotels.

We would not consider staying at this hotel again as the owners have no care whatsoever for customers.

Here we had the best service in this hotel like it should be. The house is great and very nice, enough space to stay. All the guest supplies are special and the bed is perfect as well as the furnishing, technical equipment and the special Breakfast with homemade cake, fresh squeezed Juice, delicious tea etc.
Very unique is the friendly and professional way like the staff and the host are!!!
This made our stay in CANNES very special and we will never forget and will come again.
Also I do not want to forget that you have in the Appartement a nice small kitchen.

This boutique hotel is located at the end of the main shopping street in Cannes, Rue Antibes. Johan- the manager can't do enough to ensure you have everything needed during your stay. Thanks to him and his team this has been a flawless experience - as last time around. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a smaller family owned hotel with a sentral location in Cannes.

The apartments were spacious, clean and well appointed. This family-run Villa/B&B is charming and the service is out of this world.
Everyone bends over backwards to serve and please you.
Beautiful breakfast and a cocktail hour with wine and beverages each evening at 6pm are included.
Location is convenient to shopping and the beaches.
Highly, highly recommended!!!

After a few nights in Nice we wanted to stay in Cannes and found this little boutique hotel. We were greeted by the Manager Johan, offered drinks and a detailed guide to the hotel and Cannes itself. The apartment was lovely, and at turn down the sofa bed was opened up for my daughter. There was plenty of space, lots of lovely touches that I won't spoil for you! But rest assured, you won't be disappointed.
Villa Garbo is on a busy roundabout, but the double glazing means there's no noise, the air conditioning works perfectly - a nice touch is that the bedroom can be a different temp to the rest - and it's a very short walk to the sea.

The hotel suite was fantastic ..very comfortable and elegant .Breakfast very fresh and staff very friendly . You feel as though you are at home . Location is close to the Croisette and especially the main shopping street Rue d’antibes . Definitely a nice alternative to the bigger 5 star hotels on the Croisette as service is more personalised .

Thank you for the wonderful stay we had in your hotel, with all of you. We had a very good time in Cannes not the least because of your great efforts to suggest and reserve excellent spots for us.
The rooms were spacy and quiet in spite of the central location.

Cher Armand, Nous vous remercions pour votre demande. Une réservation effectuée directement sur notre site vous offre le petit déjeuner ainsi que l'open bar le soir. Une cuisine toute équipée est disponible dans votre chambre pour cuisiner si vous le désirez mais aucun repas n'est servi à la Villa Garbo. De nombreux restaurants se trouvent à votre disposition en sortant de la Villa Garbo car nous sommes en plein centre ville et donc très bien situés. Nous restons à votre disposition pour toute autre demande. Bien cordialement, Johan WELTER Manager
