We requested an alternative room because our allocated room overlooked the carp park and we were awakened in the early hours by someone speaking very loudly there. We were given an alternative room which was very good apart from minimal wardrobe space. The public areas were rather cool and all the seating was scuffed. No complimentary nibbles were offered with drinks. Breakfast was limited and consisted mostly of various breads, pastries, cooked meats. The bacon & sausage were poor quality and the only eggs available were scrambled, no tomatoes. Not worth 19 Euros. The hotel was a few minutes walk from the concert hall, theatre, central Lille and the old town but inconvenient for the Metro.

A nice hotel full of character and in a good location with friendly staff. However, we were kept awake all night by our toilet that flushed by itself every minute and were so tired the next day had to check out early and return home instead of doing the sightseeing originally planned - very disappointing The hotel did not tell us at the time of booking that the roads would be closed during our stay so we could not park our car at the hotel or in Lille centre. We were told a few days in advance of travel but then too late to change our arrangements as they involved meeting other people.We had to leave our car at Calais and pay for the TGV.

Great hotel, booked a standard room which was lovely but did want something more luxurious so upgraded to a comfort suite for an extra 40 euros, was stunning room in traditional part of hotel. The set evening menu in the hotel was 33eur for a master chef esque four course dining experience with superb service. Piano bar and champagne cocktails hit the spot!! The opera house had an open day and is a magnificent building with finely painted ceilings with gilt surrounds. For a short stay the only thing you have to do is walk round Lille and drink coffee, wine and beer to appreciate it all. Would definitely use the hotel an visit again, so easy to get to on the eurostar.

We stayed one night on our way down to Alsace and one on our way back to the UK, in a superior room both times. The size of the rooms was great and the bed was good. Minor quibbles - on the way down the room we had smelt of cigarettes, on the way back everything was great though the carpet obviously needed replacing as it was stained in places. Regarding value for money, this was good compared to some other hotels we had stayed in but the bar was very expensive. breakfast was excellent though again a little expensive. Overall we would give the hotel 9.5.

Super conversion of the building. The inner courtyard area is beautiful but could do with some aircon due to the glass roof but not so as to put you off staying. It is in a great location for the old part of the town, the food in the resteraunt is superb. The staff are excellent

We only stayed there two nights and felt the price quoted for the room was expensive, two different prices for each night and having stayed there many times, I know they have bigger and better rooms than the one we got. Overall it is a good hotel and we stay there each time we go to Lille but forget about it in high summer as they have no air conditioning in the hotel and it is very uncomfortable both in the public areas and in your room.

The hotel and staff are faultless and we had an extremely enjoyable stay, however we were under the impression that breakfast was included and the room price was competitive. This was not the case as the rate was exactly the same for any one, and breakfast was extra.

Tried to charge us the full rate when we left on the Sunday! Luckily I had taken my booking form so could prove that we had a lower rate.
