After researching practically all the hotels in Cannes, I eventually chose Le Grand due to its location, the option of a balcony and the reported size of the room. We stayed in a prestige sea view room which had an adequate sized balcony (8 square metres) with two wicker loungers and a small table. The room itself was large (37 square metres) with the toilet separate to the bathroom. Personally, I found the toilet very dark and a little claustrophobic, but you are hardly going to spend all day in there!
Unfortunately breakfast was not included in our room rate and we did not eat in the restaurant during our stay. We did order breakfast to the room one morning which was delivered promptly and was just as we ordered. We also had a drink one night in the very expensive bar (a glass of wine was actually cheaper than a cup of tea). My advice would be to buy a bottle of wine in the supermarket and take advantage of your balcony and sea view.
While the service was pleasant enough and the room was clean, I felt that the hotel lacked many of the luxuries which could be expected from a five star hotel (e.g. no water provided at turn down, no docking station etc.). As is common on the continent, no tea and coffee making facilities are provided. However, you can get good rates for this hotel which can make it worthwhile, which we did by waiting until close to our travel date.
