The Experience

Civilised and convivial, the Cavendish is a joy, offering a drink on arrival and a complimentary bar in the evening. Set back from the bustle of Cannes, this splendid rebirth of a Napoleon III mansion displays Madame Welter’s talents. Subtle modern comforts and splendid rooms, some with a balcony or terrace, are the frame. Sensuous, exuberant, almost edible choices of fabric and colour are the order of the day.

Quirky old-fashioned charm enfolds it all. It’s like being a guest in the grand house of a grand homme, such as its namesake, Lord Cavendish. How attentive to offer leaf teas for breakfast, how attractive to dress the curvy Carrara marble staircase with candles at dusk, how delightful to slip between lavender-scented sheets at night.

Freshly baked croissants, cakes and crumbles, homemade jams and cheerful staff make mornings easy, especially if you’re headed to one of the events at the Festival Hall, ten minutes away.

Hotel Cavendish felt like a grand dame – a real sense of history. The lift (the old lady!) is a fun touch. My room was smart, up top with a balcony and a big marble bathroom. The free evening drinks and nibbles are a lovely extra. The location is on a main road, but wasn't noisy, and it's very handy for the train station.

Sarah, Bath

Once inside the hotel, there's a great feeling of friendliness and traditional values of generosity and discretion, epitomised by the complimentary open bar every evening, a great place to meet other guests (over free drinks). The original lift, staircase and fittings make Le Cavendish a special place to stay in Cannes.

Local points of interest from Christine & Guy Welter

  • Go for a walk on La Croisette, take a stroll under the palm trees and pretend to be a Star standing on the steps of the famous red carpet of the Palais des Festivals
  • Take a cruise to the Lerins Islands facing Cannes : Saint Honorat and Sainte Marguerite islands. Another way to discover the bay of Cannes, more true and authentic
  • Take a look at Le Suquet and the Old City : Forville food market, Saint Antoine street with famous terrases and restaurants, Place de La Castre with its amazing sight of Cannes, as far as the eyes can see !
  • Hop on the train (station less than 5 minutes walk from the hotel) to Nice or Monaco. Roam around the markets in Vintimiglia or San Remo : Italy being only 1 hour away ...
  • Visit Grasse, Fragonard museum and realize that fragrances created by famous perfumers are still made with flowers harvested less than 20 minutes away from Cannes
  • Go diving at the Cannes' underwater eco-museum, and discover Jason deCaires Taylor's impressive underwater sculptures
