I recently stayed with my partner at the Five Hotel and Spa in Cannes for an extended weekend and had an executive room. The rooms were impeccably prepared, stylish and fit the norm for this category hotel.
The breakfast buffet was extremely well presented and I was delighted it was included in the room rate as some hotels do make you pay extra. The quality of the food was superior, like the staff that waited on us. The hotel has a friendly, open and expertly trained team. Some of them made you feel rather ‘at home’ and their level of English was fantastic given that the French have a bad reputation with speaking English.
The only aspect we found rather odd was that the Head of Kitchen (the chef?) was taking orders from clients and his English was rather poor. If you are striving to maintain your 5* status, why would you the chef do this? In addition to that, we heard him berate his staff (a young girl) while she was standing at the buffet. Frankly, there’s a time and a place for that and again – if you want to represent your hotel as a 5*, act like one. A good hotel is only as good as its team!!!!
I would like to give the breakfast a better than average (as everything else is very good!!!) ranking but watching the chef act that way, kind of made us feel bad for that girl.
Overall, we loved the hotel and will stay there again when we come back to Cannes!
