Le Cavendish Boutique Hotel

11 bd. Carnot, Cannes, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, 06400, France

Lovingly restored by friendly owners Christine and Guy Welter, the giddily opulent former residence of Lord Cavendish is a true delight, playing up both contemporary style and 19th-century elegance. The downstairs bar is cozy for the free drinks and nibbles served daily from 6 to 9 pm, and a copious buffet breakfast is included in the price when you book through the hotel website. Guest rooms are done in bright swaths of color ("wintergarden" greens, "incensed" reds). Beauty, conviviality, and even smells—sheets are scented with lavender water, and fresh flowers line the entryway—all work in harmony. Exclusive online deals sometimes cut rates in half; there's an airport bus that stops outside the door.

PROS

  • genuine welcome is a refreshing change from the notoriously frosty reception at other Cannes palace hotels
  • complimentary drinks and snacks each evening
  • the only Cannes hotel that serves breakfast until the last guest has eaten

CONS

  • even though rooms all have double-pane windows, the hotel is on the busiest street in Cannes, so ask for a room in the back
