We always returned back to carlton hotel, one of the best hotels in the riviera. One of the best service i ever had in the 5-star category. The staff is amazing and the room/suite is always very clean and comfortable. I love the champagne breakfast buffét! We will definately return again, and again.

With colleagues: Top suites Rooms on the backside urgently need facelift and maintenance Common places like breakfast, ball rooms top quality and nice style Price quality for suites okay, rooms too high

We recently visited this hotel for a long weekend. As a platinum ihg card holder I have to say this is the first hotel I have stayed in that has made no effort to welcome me on arrival, add my welcome points to my card or extend the courtesy of offering any additional benefits as is customary at ihg group hotels worldwide. That said, the staff were courteous and helpful and the hotel is stunning inside. The breakfast was disappointing particularly as the selection of fruit was minimal and the cooked breakfast was very poor. The pastries were excellent as one would expect. Service at breakfast was hit and miss and we regularly waited a long time for a hot drink. This was made all the more frustrating as the coffee machine in the breakfast hall was broken on the second day of our visit and not repaired or replaced during our stay! There were no complimentary drinks in the room - not even a bottle of water or a free pod for the nespresso machine. The rooms were very hot even in late October / early November despite the air conditioning at full pelt. The delivery of an iron required 2 phone calls and a wait of 30 minutes. We also waited for milk and an additional cup and this required more than one set of instructions. We were also very disappointed that the beach area was completely closed including the bar and the removal of all sunbeds. I was forced to sunbathe laying on a towel in dirty sand and alongside a load of locals who had ignored the private beach sign and were making the most of a relatively quiet spot for their kids to run wild. The beds were comfy and the housekeeping service was excellent. Our shower head was broken and this was quickly replaced. The concierge and porters were also excellent. On one evening we joined a drink and canape reception at the hotel and the food was superb. It is certainly a stunning venue inside the function rooms. Overall it was a good 4 star hotel. We would return only if the price was right.

I stayed at the Carlton for a business trip last week and I have to say the hotel has a nice wow factor from the outside. The hotel is old but has plenty of history and i guess that is their unique selling point. The lobby area is not as grand as you might expect compared to other hotels in this class however it is functional. My key observations are as follows: The rooms are huge compared to modern hotels with plenty of storage, so is the bathroom. The rooms were always clean too. The premium room with the ocean view are on the front of the hotel the other rooms with a partial view are on the side, please note there is a massive build project at the back (that they dont tell you about at checkin) that affected my sleep as they start quite early. Make sure you ask for a quiet room if you need one. Good quality blanket WiFi everywhere. I didnt use the gym facilities but i did see one there. The negatives about this hotel are the other additional costs...drinks and food at the hotel are dreadfully expensive especially the drinks. Cocktails are €30+ and food will set you back even more! If you don't mind paying the ridiculous prices then good for you but i would go to some of the nearby bars that are cheaper and offer better value. I didn't use the gym or the spa but i did see one there. All in all the hotel was lovely to stay at, good location, great service but its not as modern as you would expect, some of the additional charges are ridiculous but if you want to go back to the late 80's early 90's then you would like it.

Absolutely reviewed hotel, nothing special, contrary! You have nothing in the price which is astronomical! Wifi is not free (only for members of a hotel club), sunbeds on the beach are not free!!! You have to pay FROM 80, - Eur for each sunbed for every day? I really don't know what I actually paid for in this hotel? The only thing that was perfect was cleaning services and receptionist! The room was clean, the cleaners was perfect!!! Everything was beautifully balanced, etc. We bought the upgrade and got a room with a partial sea view. Unfortunately, the room was opposite the hotel, which was two nights party on the roof of the hotel, so we can't sleep for 2 nights, after these 2 nights we move on to the new room. The reception was very helpful. The other room was nice and quit. I understand classic style of this hotel, but the waste in the room is old! Exhausted. Breakfast was good. In this hotel you pay mainly for the name, otherwise I did not catch the main advantage, because you pay extra for all, even though you have already paid big money. Last time we chooses another hotel on the promenade. Carlton absolutely does not pay. I recommend choose another hotel than Carlton

Elegant architecture, incredibly beautiful, perfect location, perfect cleanliness, delicate, famous ... but I must tell you the truth ... so much fame that no could you let see the defects, but to me this does not happen. A room with a beautiful ocean view, but nothing functional. A bath divided in two; the toilet bowl room, 2 by 3 feet, in front of the bathroom, on the other side of the hall, where you sit with difficulty; if you ate a lot of junk food, you could die in your own gas chamber. Terrible, a dwarf room, not functional. Also, due to the chef's fame, the first impression upon entering the hotel was a pervasive fishy odor, uffffff. Unforgivable. Even the five stars would cover their noses. We will say that in reality they are three, by their fame, four stars, but never five.

I remember wanting to go to this hotel when I first watched ‘French Kiss’ back in 1995. So in 2006 my husband and I went to visit and ate at their Beach restaurant which was divine. We didn’t stay as my husband thought it was too expensive to stay there. I went back to Cannes this year to celebrate my milestone birthday with some friends. I would have stayed at the hotel but realising that everyone had different budget allowances, so we stayed at an AirBnB instead. However, as we were celebrating something very special, I decided to have dinner at the hotel’s restaurant with my friends. And boy did the hotel staff pulled every stops and made it a special night for us. Granted it was a little bit quiet for Cannes that evening (it was a Friday) as Cannes is very much a ‘seasonal’ town, but who cares, we were made to feel extremely special. The food was all round amazing – I loved my octopus dish – and we are talking big chuncky pieces of octopus. They even churned out ‘hundreds’ (well, not literally, but a lot!) of macaroons! We left feeling stuffed, feeling extra special and glad we went there to celebrate! Thank you to the restaurant staff who made the extra ordinary effort to make us feel welcome and happy – you are the best! Merci! Next time when I’m back, I will actually stay at the hotel for a week – or maybe even a month!

We had booked a long weekend at this hotel through Voyage Prive. The Carlton us a very imposing and grand looking building situated in a perfect location mid way along La Croissette. The views of the promenade and sea beyond are not obstructed by anything other than the occasional palm tree. We were made to feel very welcome on arrival, swift check in and escorted to our room and shown the facilities We had booked a deluxe room and had been upgraded to a much bigger executive room, with a side sea view if you stood very close to the window. We were disappointed not to have a full sea view, that said, we hadn't booked one. On a number of TripAdvisor reviews when people have complained about their rooms the hotel has always responded indicating if they were aware of preferences they would do their best to accommodate. So we thought we would give it a try and ask to move. Reception were brilliant, found us a room on the second floor with a full sea view, not as big as the exec room but the view was fantastic and made the weekend for us. Yes the room wasn't modern and had a slightly shabby genteel feel and the toilet was in what could best be described as a cupboard but this hotel is about so much more than ultra modern facilities. I could have spent hours sitting in the bay with the doors open watching the comings and goings both on the promenade and on the water. The service was fantastic from the receptionist who changed our room to the concierge who made our restaurant bookings and organised taxis, to the waiters on the terrace at breakfast, they were all brilliant. We didn't have dinner in the hotel just breakfast and early evening cocktails on the terrace. Breakfast was a superb selection of hot and cold, beautiful pastries and a celebration of all things fig. Overall a great hotel, yes it is expensive but so is every other hotel on la Croissette. The location, history and service make this a special experience. We hope to return very soon

Of course... Carlton have very famous exterior but time change now and for top brand must be more actual. Carlton hotel just big name now. Nothing more. Tired interior... for this price can be better. And for supporting famous name need be better too. In any case- good service and great beach restaurant

My wife and I stayed 2 nights at this hotel in Oct., 2017. The hotel is located near the middle part of the nice beach in Cannes. Though with long history, the lobby of the hotel was still looking fresh and grand. However, the furniture of the rooms were a bit old (my friends staying in other rooms had the same view) and in fact, the chair in my room shook slightly while I sat down. The staff of the hotel were friendly and helpful. I did enjoy my stay there.
