Recent guest reviews

superb service , good size room, very clean, excellent balcony facing the sea, very quite , good size bed,super size bathroom,the location of the hotel was the best part as it is at the end of the center so it is only a walk away from it

Hotel is old but partly renovated. NO FREE parking despite the fact that they have three garage that are empty all the time! ridiculous !! Most disapointing fact was that the room was half ready when we arrived late in the night !! one of the beds was without blanket !!!!!! UNACCEPTABLE !!! The reception staff was rude at the check in ! Terrible experience! never again !!

I decided to go for 3 nights to the south of France, I found a promo in Groupon that seemed reasonable for a 4-star hotel (over 300€...) My partner and I arrived around midnight a Friday to a Saturday after long 5h road in the car. From the outside the hotel looks big and quite fancy, it is located really close to the sea which gives a nice feeling. Once in there, a lady in reception was nice although she seemed to be new, she was completely alone in the night as every night. We got out room (N 210), which according to the information on the website is a 230€ per night room, is not the basic one but one of the nicest ones. It has a balcony with a pretty view to the pool and the sea. Our first impression going through the old elevator and walking the room halls is that doesn't seem a 4-star hotel since the beginning, the installations are a bit old, seems at some point it was a 4-star, but not anymore. When we entered the room it looked nice, small details like the windows were not really clean, but nothing to make a big fuzz about (I'm not that kind of clients anyway). Then I went to the toilet and got a huge horrible surprise, there was a big black cockroach on the floor. I am an animal lover, including insects but cockroaches take my cool out. I called the lady in reception who didn't know much how to react. Two nights after the morning reception guy gave me a "free cocktail" ticket... (wich ended up being just a glass of wine, or beer...). That same last night, when I went to the room and used the toilet once again, I found myself surprised again to see ANOTHER cockroach... this time it didn't seem like an exception. The hotel is not a 4 star for sure, the place is nice anyway and the breakfast is good, although it shouldn't keep using the "4-star" symbol on their name.

This hotel is well located just in front of the sea. The restaurant is wonderful with original and tasty food. The staff is charming and helpful. The rooms are trendy and clean. I would definitely recommend it.

Had read the reviews on here so my expectations were not high. Booked for a congress in town but most decent places were 200 euro plus, this was 140 including breakfast. Its a 20 minute walk from the airport shuttle in a quiet area. On check in Francois was great with a nice welcome and as a platinum member a good upgrade. The pool looked inviting but too cold, the beach is a few minutes across a bridge over the railway (great idea that building a railway along a seafront!!!!). A bit odd not allowing you to have an iron but have to take your stuff to an ironing room , like a youth hostel! All the staff very nice, breakfast was a good spread through the bacon and eggs , like others have said were cold and looked as if no one was touching them so I guess they just go to waste.The bread and cheese and pastries were good though. 6 euros for half a pint of beer (1/3 froth) is crazy until we met some pals in town and it was 13 euros for half. Overall enjoyed my stay at the holiday inn, Cannes.

I just stayed at the Holiday Inn hotel in Cannes...even though they claim to be a 4* hotel it's barely a 2* Cleanliness wise no problem the hotel is clean! But the breakfast is very poor! They tell you the breakfast is until 10;30 so i got down at 9:50! 10:05 they come and ask me if i will eat anything else because they will remove everything??? By everything i mean the Croissant and eggs which are the only things available!!! Is this what you call 4*??? I requested some cucumbers and tomatoes since you have no vegetables in the morning and the person serving there told me sure they will bring right away! After 20 minutes of waiting i left and that same person just smiled knowing that she didnt serve me the vegetables i asked for and brought a check of 15 euros for 1 croissant and 2 eggs! What a disaster...i didnt say anything to the hotel because i dont like such situations but if youre looking for a 2* hotel maximum this would be ur choice..but dont expect to see anything of a 4*!

Last time I stayed I made some fairly swingeing comments about the dining. Well we were not going to take the risk again so we did not eat in the hotel. When I asked about breakfast the receptionist said it was now €20 a head. This is a ridiculous price and when I told her that at one Crowne Plaza where we stay it is €8.80 a head, she just would not believe me. I do not believe €20 a head is justifiable anywhere for breakfast - there is only so much you can eat and I have had better IHG breakfasts at other hotels that I had at this one on the previous occasion. If we had a room upgrade it was certainly not obvious. The room was just about the same rather small room we had the previous time. It had a nice outlook but was certainly cramped. The bathroom and toilet were again separate and not what I would advocate but we were able to have a cup of tea in the room before we left in the morning. Parking at the hotel is dire. There were about 4 spaces only. One facet of interest to me about this hotel is that I am almost 100% certain it has been built on the very site of a large family mansion which I stayed in over 50 years before for a summer holiday on a French exchange visit. We used to play croquet on the lawn!

Location maybe not fantastic but not that bad... although breakfast was below any level. Tomatoes with temperature close to zero. No taste. You try to have breakfast around 10.00 and there were epmty plates. No minibar in the room. No single bottle of mineral water. Try to call reception. I tried 5 times. Never picked up. Try another place...

i give it to the staff and view from the room. - Those made this a great quick stop in Cannes. Hotel is just cross a road and rail road tracks from the narrow beach. The noise from the train is somewhat bothersome if you are sitting on the balcony. (doors closed no problem). There is some obvious tear and wear on the hotel, but its clean and well kept. The pool is nicely lit at night time, and seems inviting (but its not heated). Did not use restaurant, but I am sure its pretty good. Rooms are little on the small side, but that did not bother. Overall nice one night stay. - Would stay again.

I stayed at this hotel in 2014 and it has had a face lift since then to the rooms and common areas which has improved my rating to 4 stars. Clean and bright hotel. Staff very pleasant and very helpful.
