Just back from a great 3 night stay at this belle époque hotel in the heart of Cannes. It’s our third stay in as many years and we don’t normally revisit places so this is one of our absolute favourites. The hotel is on a busy main road a few hundred metres from the sea front but is amazingly sound proofed throughout so that only emergency vehicle horns get through the walls and windows. We get a warm and friendly welcome every time we visit and the staffs are in the main people who have looked after us before which speaks volumes for the owners and their HR approach.
The vintage lift takes you up to your room (310 in our case) and there is everything you need to make yourself comfortable. Bath and shower with top of the range gels and conditioners etc plenty of fresh towels, replaced each evening, and a big bed. Two windows which open onto a reasonably quiet street below with electronic shutters to block out the light if you need it. Aircon is welcome in the hot summer months and the room has a light airy feel. Flat screen TV and plenty of cupboard/wardrobe space. Safe in room.
Drinks in the evening at the small bar on the ground floor are FREE and this encourages you to mix and chat with fellow guests. A great idea and one that sets the hotel apart from any other we have stayed in. Canapés are served along with crisps and nuts. There is no restaurant at the Cavendish so an evening meal is always taken out in the town or elsewhere. No problem and one is spoiled for choice in Cannes. Breakfast is served in the same place as the bar and it is always excellent. Fresh bread and croissants etc are available along with an array of fresh fruit, cereals and other delights. Homemade marmalade and jams are on hand to round off a super morning feast.
We like to use the hotel’s arrangement with the Plage Du Festival on the Croisette where you get a couple of comfy loungers and a brolly in the front row of the beach. Drinks etc are of course on hand when it gets hot and you can eat at your loungers or in the restaurant attached to the beach.
All in all a great place to stay and we thoroughly recommend it.
