This really is a hotel of contrasts; on the one hand it proudly displays its Provençal decor (perhaps even a little too much so) whilst on the other its guest rooms ooze charm and are very low-key. The swimming pool and the views from the rooftop of the hotel are outstanding, but on the downside, the only form of catering provided is a single vending machine.

    Location 9.27 /10

    The Best Western Cannes Riviera stands just a stone's throw from Cannes city centre. It is just opposite the entrance to the TGV station, which rather spoils the landscape, but then that's the price you have to pay for having the station at your doorstep!

    Accommodation 7.95 /10

    As you leave the communal areas to make your way up the corridor to your room, you'll get the rather bizarre feeling that you've suddenly switched hotels.
    Leaving the Provençal decor of the lobby and other communal areas behind, the classy, low key grey walls and red carpets take over. The same goes for the guest rooms, which feature white walls and just a touch of colour (blue or burgundy red) in the bedspread, curtains, and piping on the headboard and furniture to brighten the place up a little. Warm and mellow, the guest rooms were renovated as recently as 2009. The furniture has been carefully chosen and the bathrooms are done out in the same colour scheme as the bedroom, creating a sense of unity. Facilities include either a shower or a bathtub, and whilst the bathrooms on the whole are not exactly spacious, they are nevertheless perfectly functional. The 63 guest rooms have views of either the train station or the terrace and are equipped with a flat-screen television broadcasting international channels and a safe but no mini-bar.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    The first impression you get of this hotel (or should that be village?) when you first set foot inside is rather extraordinary, and perhaps a little kitsch. It has to be said that there is an amazing contrast between the outside, which looks a tad depressing with all the TGV rails running by, and the inside, which is designed in the style of a Provençal square.
    Of course, the transition between the two isn't quite so dramatic, with the light decor and little archways of the reception area serving as something of an air-lock between the two separate worlds. In fact, only when you see the plaque reading 'Place du Village' ('Village Square') on one of the pillars will the penny drop. Then, as you move towards the marble staircase and the lift, you will find yourself gradually approaching the heart of the Provençal village. A glance upwards will reveal a series of yellow ochre and red reconstructed façades, ceiling tiles painted to represent a blue sky, and pretty green shutters.
    Once the initial impression has passed, the next thing that'll strike you as you leave the village square behind is how extraordinary and perhaps a little random this place is. In fact, although all of the communal areas are harmonious in terms of style and colour scheme (pale pink for the walls, burgundy red net curtains and upholstery fabrics, and a clear Provençal theme), the gallery of very brightly-coloured Naive paintings dotted all around the place are as eye-catching as a colourful Picasso amid otherwise purely Norman surroundings.
    Once you've gotten over this discovery of a harsh chromatic design, the true nature of the Best Western Cannes Riviera shines through. Whatever you make of the modern Provençal-style decor, you have to admit that the relaxation areas are particularly spacious and comfortable, including the lounge area near the bar that is bathed in blue light.
    The breakfast room is also of a comfortable size and again features a Provençal-style decor. It opens out onto a beautiful terrace where you can start the day with breakfast al fresco surrounded by olive and palm trees. Having said that, the real jewels of this hotel are to be found up on the roof and down in the cellar. If you take the lift up to the top floor of the hotel you can step out on to the rooftop where you'll find the hotel's 20m² swimming pool and a panoramic view across Cannes. With a setting like this, who needs sunbeds for a quick-fix tan!
    Back down at reception, meanwhile, take the stairs down to the wine bar below. Although it isn't used all the time, the vaulted stone cellar is certainly worth a peep. It is also available for private hire and is often used for wine tasting sessions.

    Food and drink

    In terms of dining, the Best Western Cannes Riviera serves breakfast only. It consists of an international-style buffet of cheeses, cold cuts, Viennese pastries, fruit, hot drinks, yogurt, etc. and can be enjoyed in the breakfast room, out on the terrace, or even in the comfort of your own room at no extra cost. The hotel bar is open 24 hours a day but does not serve any food. If it's just a quick snack you're after, the only option available to you within the hotel is the vending machine on the 6th floor.

      Far from the images of rental apartments from our childhood (very kitsch and soulless studio apartments), the Villa d'Estelle has combined the advantages of a hotel (reception, room service, etc.) with the freedom that a fully equipped apartment has to offer. An ideal solution for families or groups of friends, the immaculate low key decor will appeal to many a guest.
