Hotel Chateau De La Tour
Ranked #25 of 126 Hotels in Cannes
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 October 2013 via mobile

Had stayed here for 3 nights with 8 people in 4 rooms for a long WE in August. The hotel is charming and first class. Service is smooth and kind, and the waitress makes excellent coctails while enjoying the sun on the swimming pool deck. Location is good if you don't mind some walking to the beach or to town. Possible with a car as well but sommertime traffic in Cannes is tough.

Stayed: August 2013, travelled with friends

I have never been to Cannes before so I had no preconceived ideas. Chateau De La Tour is actually in the La Bocca region of Cannes, a 10 minute bus ride to Hotel De Ville (town hall) the centre of Cannes.
The hotel is situated in a residential area up a hill that is quite steep and would present a challenge to older or unfit folk on a hot day. Our room was tiny, in fact very tiny and not suitable for two persons on holiday. It was furnished with a double bed, one small round table and one chair and a footstool so if you wanted to read, listen to music or watch the TV you could only sit on the bed. There was not enough room for two suitcases and clothes hanging space consisted of a narrow cupboard like wardrobe with a few clothes hangers. The bathroom was also tiny although well laid out. Everywhere was kept very clean and tidy. The room was in fact more suitable for a person such as a travelling salesman who would only want to stay one or two nights. Our room overlooked the swimming pool area which doubled for outside breakfast and dinner space. We only had heavy curtains , no secondary nets or such like so there was a lack of privacy as we could be overlooked and even when the sun was streaming through the window in the early mornings we had to keep the curtains closed and have a light on in order to protect or privacy. The pool area looked nice and clean and well laid out but we chose to go to the local beaches which were great and were a ten minute walk down the hill, then taking a short cut through a private clinic across the road. It was easy to access Cannes centre which was a great experience and you had a choice of three buses at the low single fare of 1.5 euros. We never ate in the hotel as it is not our scene and we like to get out and mix with the locals. I have to say that the reception staff at the Chateau were fantastic and couldn’t be more helpful.
We plan to go back to Cannes soon as we loved it and the French locals who were extremely friendly and accommodating. Next time though, we shall choose a studio or apartment close to the centre of Cannes so that we get more living space and a better holiday experience. I am afraid that the Chateau De La Tour didn’t tick all the boxes for us this time.

Hotel chateau de la tour is truly a hidden gem of the Côte d'Azur. The staff are so welcoming- we knew in an instant we were going to enjoy our stay.

Everything was wonderful - from the clean and tidy rooms to the calm and relaxing pool area to the truly amazing breakfasts and evening meals. We have eaten in many Michelin starred restaurants and this was far superior.

We usually stay at the Carlton in Cannes but this hotel provided us with a wonderful family holiday where my wife could relax and my young daughter could have fun (and improve her french!) I hope to make this annual affair. C'est formidable!!!

We stayed in this hotel for 5 days after coming from Italy by our car.
This hotel has very elegant structure with nice forniture and cosy rooms. I chose it mainly because it has a comfortable parking for car, a very nice garden with pool equipped with luxury sunbeds and umbrellas and it is located out of noisy area of Cannes. Its location is very good only if you have a car otherwise you will find it a bit far from center by foot. However to be in nice residential area will guarantee privacy and silent nights. We asked for a double classic bedroom and we got assigned a first floor pool view lovely room. The only negative fact was its size which was a bit small (especially toilet) but its forniture and athmosphere were perfect to make it a lovely place for romantic vacation in couple.
We really appreciated the free pool with free linen for sun beds available for all guests.
The quality of our rest was high and price was very very reasonable considering it is Cannes.
We tried also breakfast one morning, and we found it tasty and well managed (even if no bargain price for 2). We didn't try restaurant cause we liked to explore Cannes by night, however it was always full of guests, many of them seemed some vips with their Ferrari.
Staff was polite and helpful, we found a warm ambient, we felt immediately at comfortable place.
Definitively we would repeat this nice experience.

Room Tip: first and second floors are very silent.

We booked 5 nights, but left after only 2 this hotel was so bad. The reasons for this included:

* Location: According to the website, this hotel is located in "one of the most prestigious residential areas in Cannes". If that is true, I wouldnt want to step foot in any of Cannes less privilidged suburbs. In the building next door were mangy dogs that barked constantly, a group of girls that sat smoking in the road and gangs of youths waiting at bus stops. The hotel is right next to the local hospital. The website also states that the hotel is situated "in the heart of a luxurious park", but said park does not exist, check the map. To get to the beach you have to walk down the main road then down a grotty side road. It's not a "holiday" experience, and was extremely offputting. Not relaxing at all. Other reviewers have said you do not need to leave the hotel grounds. The reality was that you wouldn't want to, the surrounding area was so unpleasant and rundown.

* Room: we booked a "large" Deluxe sea view room. According to the website these are the most luxurious in the property, except the one we were given looked nothing like the beautiful rooms depicted on the website. Our room (205) had two large leatherette padded wardrobes blocking the view of the sea from the bed and a large, tacky print of marilyn monroe above the bed. Not what we were expecting at all. When we complained, the manager only coldly and repeatedly responded that the room had been "recently renovated", as if this made everything right. The bathroom however was lovely. The AC unit was very loud.

* Pool: we were disappointed to find that the pool water was grubby, with dark murky patches at the bottom. We did not therefore use this facility. Moreover, water was often left in puddles around he pool so there were mosquitoes everywhere.

On the otherhand, the restaurant, at which we ate on both nights of our stay, was excellent and the food very well presented. On both nights the half board menu was the same however, so it would appear it doesnt change regularly so could be a bit boring for a longer stay.

Breakfast was somewhat disappointing with very limited selection and items often running out and not replenised until a guest pointed it out to staff.

If you dont plan to leave the hotel, Chateau de la Tour would probably be suitable for families and older couples.

We drove from England to stay at this hotel after finding it by accident online. It's not easy to find a good quality hotel in Cannes that provides complementary secure parking within their own grounds, but the Hotel Chateau De La Tour does just that! Situated within reasonable walking distance from Cannes and the beaches, it's an ideal spot for a luxury Mediterranean holiday. Mind you, there's really no reason to leave this hotel, as the swimming pool and sun loungers are excellent, with complementary hotel towels, we always found them quiet and with plenty of free space. But for us having booked half board, the restaurant service was second to none! The breakfast served in the poolside restaurant was a wonderful way to start the day, and the dinner was as close to fine dining as I've ever managed to find on the Cotês D'Azur. The service was professional yet personal, and the food prepared by the resident chef was 5 star and just couldn't be faulted. We loved every minute of our stay here and will certainly come back again and again! Keep up the good work all of you!

This beautiful hotel is located a bit outside the main city of Cannes, but still very close (about 5 mins by car). The rooms are lovely and the staff is outstanding. Service is some of the best I've experienced, even at 5-star luxury properties. There was a temporary problem with the aircon when we arrived and the owner upgraded our family to the adjoining villa the next day - the villa was amazing! Very large rooms, luxurious bathrooms (almost as large as the bedrooms!), full kitchen, living/dining rooms, and a private pool. We loved it! The original Dali art all over the villa was a nice touch and the decor was modern & fresh. The rooms at the hotel were also quite nice with very comfortable beds and views of the sea (w/ deluxe rooms). The breakfast poolside was very good and included eggs made to order. Everywhere in the hotel was spotlessly clean and the housekeepers kept the rooms perfect - so nice to return from the beach or sightseeing to this beautiful place! We had dinner at the hotel our first night and the food was wonderful. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a relaxing, luxury stay on the French Riviera!
