Perhaps you’re lucky (or hard working) enough to stay in stylish and unique properties around the world, or maybe you simply save all of your annual leave and money for that one summer holiday. Either way you want something that’s a little different; something exciting and special.
Le Cavendish Hotel in Cannes, France could just be the place you’re looking for. Well, in particular, the beautiful suite on the top floor.
It’s not just the beautiful French glamour that it oozes effortlessly. There are lots of hotels in France that manage to do just that (check out Hotel Le Tremoille if you don’t believe me). It’s not the thoughtful and kind staff who speak English, though that’s obviously appreciated. It’s not even the adorably vintage lift that looks like it should be in a museum or on your Insta-feed. If you head into the bijou restaurant/bar area during the afternoon you’ll see what some of the fuss is about.
Free Cake and Bar
During the afternoon you’ll find complimentary cake (yes, really!), as well as a huge selection of teas and coffee. Better than that though, between 6pm and 9pm you’ll find a free bar. Yes, you heard me correctly. A free bar stocking premium brands, wine that actually tastes nice (let’s raise a glass to French wines) and you can help yourself to as much as you like. There are also branded soft drinks for those who prefer the sinless option. If you’re lucky you’ll find hotels with complimentary mini-bars (there’s one of those in the room too), but to find a hotel with a complimentary bar offering proper sized drinks is pretty amazing.
Obviously, this means 6pm-9pm is popular in the hotel. There are only thirty-four rooms, so the idea is to create a friendly atmosphere, particularly for those travelling on their own or in couples. What better way to meet new friends than over a free drink or two?
That’s not what all the fuss is about though. Back to the room…
A Very Unique Room
The suite on the fifth floor at the front of this boutique hotel is a rotund one. Forget square or weird L-shape rooms, this one is round. It spans the front part of the pretty hotel. Better yet, the generous balcony sweeps all the way round the room as well. It’s definitely unique, but in a charming, elegant way. The property used to be the home of Lord Cavendish. Born in Nice, the British Aristocrat was the chemist who discovered hydrogen. The design remains in-keeping with it’s history, but it’s been dressed in pretty lilac paint and modernised in a classy, stylish way.

My video doesn’t do it anywhere near the justice it deserves, but I hope you get the idea. Personally, I think you should try it out for yourself. That bar has your name allll over it.
Rooms won’t break the bank. They start from 99Euros a night. You can find out more here.
Big thanks to Le Cavendish for hosting my stay.
