When arriving at Nice Airport, the bus ride to the hotel takes about 45 minutes. The hotel is on the hillside in Cannes and looks down onto a busy little square. Except for the ground level café, there are very few nice restaurants in the direct facility, so you need to walk at least 5 minutes to the main stretch of town by the water.
I stayed in room 340, which was a beautiful, elegant and spacious grand room with extremely large terrace (which could hold 5 people comfortably), overlooking the small square. The room did not had too much ornamentation, but just enough to remind me of an american federalist rotunda. Pleasant, creative design, such as the bed placed in the center of the room.
Small negative points: no night stand directly next to the bed, no mirror ''up close'' for shaving/tweeling.
Staff is very kind, especially the man who served the simple buffet style breakfast, which consisted of fresh orange juice, eggs, bread and croissants with a mix of jellies. The restaurant/lounge are very small, but it works well for the mellow/private atmosphere they have created. The main staircase and elevator are quite impressive; it made the room feel significant once you reach it. Also, there is a nice private hall shared by three rooms once leaving the staircase.
Le Cavendish is a great hotel with a reasonable price-quality proportion (190€ double), taking into consideration that it is not directly on the coast. Especially recommended for those conducting business trips or for couples wishing to get some privacy. A younger crowd might wish to be more by the water/shopping district.
