“wonderful stay in Cannes”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

The location is great, very close to the train station and everything is within walking distance. The staff is professional and friendly. They responded to our needs with brisk efficiency and we liked their recommendation. The room is clean and has a relaxed ambience and the hotel has an antique charm and well maintained. My sister and I stayed there for 2 nights and very pleased with our stay. The staff makes you feel at ease from the minute you arrive at the hotel.

The service is first class and the charm of a turn of the last century hotel has been preserved while providing the amenities of this century. The bird cage elevator that runs up the center of the spiral staircase gives you a sample of the grandness of 19th Century luxury.

An example of the service: I had been on the road for ten days and was down to one change of clothing. I called down to ask where I could leave my laundry and within three minutes the front desk clerk was huffing at my door--I'm guessing she had run up the four flights. Now, the laundry service was expensive but couldn't be helped.

The continental breakfast was top notch--the best I had while on a month long tour of Europe. There is an open bar happy hour in the early evening. I did not take advantage of this--I wish I had--but the lounge area is comfortable and warm.

I stayed in one of the rotunda suites and while being costly the view from the wrap around balcony was worth the expense. Boulevard Sadi Carnot was being reconstructed while I was there that made the stay noisy--not the hotel's fault--but they said it would be completed by the end of October 2013.

When you check in, you are asked to sit at an antique desk and the clerk makes you feel at home while explaining the hotel's amenities and giving you pointers for your stay in Cannes. There is absolutely no hint of the legendary French arrogance with the staff and it seemed that they were doing their best to prove the stereotype wrong. I can't say that other places in Cannes were successful but Le Cavendish succeeded.

I plan on staying here the next time I visit.

Room Tip: The rotunda rooms are worth the extra expense. The mattress is extremely comfortable.

Dear Guest,

Many thanks for your very nice comment. I like your conclusion on the fact that our staff is making the stereotype of french arrogance wrong ! Yes we are all french and yes we love welcoming guests and pampering them. And believe me , we know some restaurants in Cannes where the owners are as nice as we are at Le Cavendish. This is why it is very important to ask at reception for our tips in the city : these are our local adresses where we personally go and appreciate cuisine and service .
Looking forward to welcoming you back in Cannes . Final lay of asphalt on the Boulevard this week ! Roadworks are mostly completed for a superb entrance in Cannes .

The staff are very warm and friendly, the welcome drink is a nice touch, as is the free bar downstairs between 6-9 to have a few drinks before going out to dinner, the restaurant recommendation was A+, the name was something provance, sorry but my french is horrible. The rooms are on the small side but very clean and quiet at night, the bed was comfortable. We arrived on sunday so we were able to park on the street and did not have to pay the 25 euros for the parking garage,

Room Tip: try to get a room higher us as you will here less street noise and get more light in the room during...

This was an amazing hotel. We loved the employees and was greeted by the Manager who even left us a welcome card and fruit basket. While it is a few blocks from the water, its worth the walk! The room was great and had a very comfortable bed. We loved the breakfast as well as the cocktail hour. The breakfast was better than any continental breakfast we have ever had, and the manager even serves you drinks! Next time we come to Cannes, we will definitely be staying here!

The hotel looks elegant and you are given a warm welcome by the staff. In fact all the staff were warm and hospitable - very helpful. The room was comfortable, pleasant and clean. I would definitely stay there again. The breakfast was plentiful and varied and the food was good quality. We also enjoyed the happy hour which seemed to last most of the evening. As we were not leaving until the evening on our departure date, the hotel stored our luggage and let us use their facilities after we had finished on the beach. All in all we had a very good experience.

Excellent location. The rooms are clean, a good size and have a great small balcony. We found the hotel incredibly helpful to Americans by offering us sit down map tour of the area just as we checked in. Highly recommended for a reasonable place to stay near all the action.
