When I was 6, in 1951, my Mother and I moved from Detroit, Michigan where she worked for the U.A.W., to Europe as she was offered a position with the Marshall Plan. We lived in Stockholm, Sweden and then Badgotesburg, Germany. We used to vacation all over Europe, but there is only one place that remains seared in my memory- and that is Chateau De La Tour. The incredible view of the sea, the surrounding villas, the palm trees and vivid flower gardens; the massive historic hotel with what I believe was a turret, still seen in the pictures, the patio and numerous friends from the U.S. who worked with my Mom joined us there for holidays. As a small child, I was shocked that we drank watered-down wine, not milk, as it wasn't pasteurized then; and my favorite: a marvelous cheese called "Petite Swisse" that came in a small wooden box-which I adored and have been searching for most of my life...to no avail. The owner at that time, was Monsieur Michelle, along with his wife. They were so caring and extremely loving to myself and the other children of our friends. The question below asks: when did you travel? No space for 1951. Just picked a random date.
Big and beautiful chateau with a cozy room with view to the pool and outside restaurant (a little expensive). Very good breakfast. Charming swimming pool with sun lougers. Small distance from Nice centre.
We didn't stay here from choice: my husband was hospitalised from a cruise ship for emergency surgery and our insurer put me in this hotel as it was very close to the clinic. I could not have been in a better place, with staff that looked after my every need in the difficult circumstances and a hotel that is exceedingly comfortable. My room was at the rear of the hotel, so no great views but it was spotlessly clean and housekeeping was excellent. Breakfast was set up in the garden every day and was of a high standard with hot items cooked to order. There is a good room service menu as well, that we used when my husband was discharged from hospital and joined me. The hotel has a nice swimming pool with plenty of sunbeds and whilst the grounds aren't extensive, they have made the most of what is s available. The location is up a fairly steep hill but this does provide a very peaceful ambience for the stylish and well-decorated hotel and public areas. It is rated 4* and I guess that 5* is not possible as it is just not big enough to be able to accommodate the required 5* fripperies. However, it is worthy of 5* and we would return without hesitation if we return to Cannes under happier (and healthier!) circumstances. We will always be grateful for the welcome we received and the kindness of the staff. Incidentally, we had good service in the restaurant and found the free wifi to be more an adequate!
We stayed in this hotel and found the staff very welcoming initially. The bedroom was very modern and clean. I liked that they provided us with a kettle and tea as most European hotels do not provide this. The hotel grounds are small but they had made use of the small space with pool and outdoor dining area. The only problem I had with this restaurant was that it's outdoors and it's too cold at night and in the morning to have breakfast there. The only other option was room service and I thought this was inadequate for a four staff hotel. Additionally, the staff did not inform us that a wedding was taking place and thus could only provide us with basic room service. I found this rather frustrating and asked for a discount but the hotel staff declined. I was disappointed with the service especially when one younger lady member of staff ages that they informed us in advance that we wouldn't be able to access the pool and dining area. So that was the last night of our holiday and by then I had enough of them dishonestly. For this reason I won't be visiting again.
We were looking for a hotel at a mor quite place in/near Cannes. We ended up at the Chateau de la Tour. In one word: marvelous Beautiful location. A very nice chateau with excellent rooms. You would expect extreme high prices, but compared to the hotels in the Centre of Cannes, it is very well priced. Staff is extremely helpful. Rooms are nice, clean, romantic... It is about 45 minute walk to the centre of Cannes. By car 5-10 minutes. A true piece of paradise.
This hotel is a lovely hidden gem! Myself and 2 friends had visited this hotel last week for 5 nights. There was nothing I could fault with our stay, the rooms were very clean and the décor was beautiful. The rooms were cleaned daily and all the hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating to everyone’s needs! The food was very pleasant although the breakfast could have been a little better with some more option but apart from the there was nothing else we could fault. With the pool area and the hotel grounds well maintained. I look forward to returning next year.
Having read some of the other reviews, our stay at hotel chateau de la tour was not what we expected. After a really long drive and pulling up in the car park we were really excited at what we saw. This was quickly dampened by a receptionist who didn't smile once, and the news that unfortunately the restaurant was fully booked and if we didn't want to go out room service was the only other option. This wouldn't have bothered us if the restaurant had have been full, it seemed there were staffing issues that night instead and they were only serving a few people because of this- disappointing that they would not accommodate something for two people who had clearly driven a long way! The service for breakfast the next morning was terrible. There were four tables in and the waiter simply forgot our order for tea and we got it 15 minutes later from another waiter- this was not the only bad part on this day but Breakfasts in fairness were much better on the other two mornings. The wi fi is appalling for a four star hotel. We stayed in many more remote places over our holiday with much better reception- something that needs to be addressed. The pool area and lunch at the restaurant was very nice indeed, and actually made the experience at the hotel much more enjoyable. This was the main plus point of the whole place but we would not stay there again.
We stayed here for 1 night - it's a very beautiful and charming hotel and appears to be relatively newly decorated. We had a big spacious room with a terrace. The staff in the hotel is superb - very friendly and helpful - we were allowed both early check-in as well as late check-out. Pool area is great with both lounge chairs and big lounge cabins. The restaurant there is ok - food was decent, but a very long wait between the meals and our waiter was definitely not as friendly as the hotel staff. Anyway, we definitely recommend this hotel.
The hotel is very nice! The reception is very friendly and the room is very cozy. The pool area is great too, however the restaurant service is really bad. The food is expensive and dont even think about asking a desert (they took an hour to let me know that they run out of ice-cream). It's a pity that such a nice hotel has such a bad food and beverage management.
We visited this hotel just for 2 nights but it wasn't enough. We arrived in the hotel in the nighttime and we were very excited from the first impression. The hotel has free parking, the reception is friendly and helpful, the room quite big and looks like a room from a castle (chateau). It's also very clean. The location of this hotel is very close to the beach, i think 10min maximum walking distance, 10 min by car from town center. If you want to discover Cote d'Azur i recommend this hotel.
