    Individual guest reviews

    • Situation near old Lille and gorgeous hotel. The building is beautiful, staff is nice, breakfast is OK and rooms are perfect, food excellent and restaurant service second to none.

      Location was great, not more than a ten minute stroll to the centre, the beds were a little hard for my liking.

    • Very convenient for the city centre, good car park facilities and nice posiiton by the canal. Allroud unusual special place and the building inside was beautiful. The staff were fantastic and the Receptionist was friendly.

      Well no view and old town. Poor value for money and room small. Loud muzak in bar, the pillows were also not very comfy and the breakfast was very limited.

    • Central bar area is lovely, breakfast well below standard for a 4 star hotel and food is very good and the design of the building interesting. The staff are the most helpful we have come across, the rooms are fine, comfortable and quiet, restaurant are amazing.

      The location is not the best and bathroom floor not clean. Drinks are expensive too, a beer at 6 euros, and a gin and tonic at 12 euros.

    • Restaurant area is particularly attractive and design of hotel is unusual and sympathetic to the original building. The interior is interesting and the staff are helpful and polite. The bathrooms are large and the shower was lovely and powerful, breakfast buffet has a great selection to cater for all tastes.

      The really smart shops, from galeries lafayette, tend to be in the old town and the rooms are mediocre. The drinks from the bar are very expensive.
