... graves. Another 37,000 names of the missing, are inscribed on the walls of the Memorial. There was also at least a dozen other "small" (less than 5,000 graves) cemeteries he saw either on the way out to Tyne Cot or while returning via a different route. Hundreds of these "small" ones don't even get a mention on the maps available at the Tourist Office. We think we may have seen sufficient war cemeteries for a little while. Dinner was at an Irish Pub, Irish Stew and beer of ...

Belgium is a favourite so far! The town is beautiful - feels like we're in a storybook. Poppies are everywhere. There is evidence all over town of John McCrae's poem. Today we had a few hours of free time so Josh and I took in the Flander's Field Museum and sought out some Belgian chocolate - so good! The museum was fantastic - provided the stories of many nations and individuals involved in the war effort. ...

Very solemn day. We visited Vimy Ridge today - I've wanted to see this monument for a long time. More rain and really dark clouds set the mood for our visit. As we drove into the site we could see more fields sectioned as there were explosives still underground. The monument itself was absolutely huge. I was awestruck with it's immense size and placement on the Ridge. The view was beautiful. One can see ...

... as only fast food where we were staying. Drove all the way in and could not find parking so drove back to Rochin. Set the GPS to town centre Rochin but seemingly the town consisted of a supermarket and a pizza place! Great pizza! Need to make olive oil for pizza. Add olive leaves, chillies and bay leaves to olive oil. Add to pizza . . . . . C'est ...

... je dois dire que je n'avais pas vraiment la tête à faire du tourisme, et puis je n'avais qu'un vieil appareil photo défectueux avec moi alors en fin de compte j'ai très peu de photos.

Et puis, j'ai fait une réaction allergique violente, assez rapidement. Une réaction à l'endroit, aux gens, à la culture, à la mentalité. J'ai vraiment détesté tout ce que je voyais autour, et je n'avais qu'une envie, m'en échapper. Heureusement, les joyeux collègues ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews L'Hermitage Gantois Hotel Lille

    Fantastic place to stay in Lille

    from

    This hotel exceed all my expectations. It has been beautifully renovated and is stunning. From the moment we entered the hotel we felt special by the staff and the fantastic surroundings.

    The bar is I believe the best feature with its glass ceiling but all rooms are decorated encorporating the old building with the modern furniture and it has been done very well.

    I would also recommend having a meal in the restaurant as it is well worth it.

    Also hotel is in a good location for the centre of Lille and a short walk from the eurostar terminal.

    Amazing place full of character

    from

    This hotel certainly had the wow factor. They seem to have managed to combine modern minimalism and style without ruining all the character of the old hospital it once was. Packed with history, lots to see and explore. The food was interesting, with a very good choice for breakfast and the rooms were a delight. We couldn't fault the service and the hotel is within easy walking distance of most of the highlights of Lille. Highly recommended.

    Great stay

    from

    Stayed for a weekend in Lille- lovely city, nice atmosphere, good shops and restaurants.

    The hotel is impressive, comfortable and very well run. We ate in the bistro which was easygoing, friendly and with good food. The restaurant next door looked a little stuffy. Breakfast was overpriced for what it was. We initially thought drinks in the bar were (typically for hotels) pricey but then realised that everywhere in Lille was fairly pricey.

    Great hotel for a special weekend.

    Delightful Experience

    from

    We had a most enjoyable stay at the Hermitage. A superb conversion from an old hospital. Our traditional room was excellent. The bar, lounge and public rooms delightful. A visit to the library, museum and chapel not to be missed.

    We ate in the Bistro which was excellent value for money, with wine available by the carafe. We thought the buffet breakfast rather overpriced.

    Car parking is easy. Plenty of room on the street outside and the helpful staff will feed the meter for you. Alternatively valet parking in a secure garage is available for about €15 per day.

    Would definately return to this hotel although having visited Lille three times feel that we have exhausted the city attractions.

    Splendid place, relaxing, and highly recommended

    from

    We stayed in November 2004 (but posting this, ahem, slightly late).

    Very enjoyable stay

    from

    Have enoyed an excellent stay at the Hermitage Gantois. It is an extremely stylish hotel, bringing together both the old and the new very successfully. The bar is attractive and the rooms are very pleasant indeed. Strongly recommended. It is a very short walk from the town centre. The only weak point is the restaurant which, in common with so many hotel restaurants, tries to carry off things which it can't manage - and there are so many other good places to eat in Lille that it's better to head out. But apart from that, this is undoubtedly the best place to stay in Lille.

    Rather strange experience

    from

    This unusual hotel seems to have sprung into being in a rather unprepossessing area of a rather ordinary town in northern France, like a fully fledged pretentious boutique hotel appearing in the wrong place by accident. It has certainly been lavishly done up but the whole does not appear to be the sum of its parts. How come, in France of all places, there is no bidet in the bathroom? Let alone a WC which is in a separate cubicle altogether (and across the other side of the bedroom) and which has NO HANDWASHING FACILITIES in it at all! Utterly bizarre. Furthermore, the light switching arrangement seemed to follow its own logic which defied my own. The food was not up to much I'm afraid and I would definitely recommend that guests try to eat elsewhere - easier said than done, because the hotel is not in the best area of town for restaurants. Well, there aren't any actually. The overall ambience is nice, the staff OK but in typical french provincial style were more interested in finishing their conversations than checking the guests in or out. This hotel didn't really do it for me - but if I am told that it is the best hotel in town, then I wouldn't be surprised at all. Lille is not the centre of the world and french provincial hotels have a long history of shabbiness and eccentricity behind them!

    Birthday Surpirise

    from

    9 - 11 December 2004, my wife and I stayed here to celebrate her birthday and we had a fabulous time. The hotel is superbly decorated with a mixture of antique and modern furniture and the bar area is very comfortable. We found the staff very friendly and we were able to relax in lovely surroundings. We ate both evenings in the main dining room and the food and service was excellent. We will definitely recommend this hotel. The old part of the town is probably 10 minutes walk away and some of the shops are a delight. Highly recommended.

    A gem of a hotel

    from

    We stayed for three nights in the Gantois. It's a gem of a hotel - an unexpected delight in a dull town. The basic rooms (called traditional) are spacious, beautifully decorated and well equipped. The public rooms are lovely and the staff helpful and charming.

    There are 2 downsides 1) the food in the main dining room is disappointing - I would not eat there again and 2) it's quite a walk to the old town where the best cafes etc are located.

    Nevertheless, we think the Gantois is the best hotel in Lille and would be a find in any town.

    Terrific Find

    from

    L'Hotel Hermitage Gantois is a wonderful find. It appears to have been completely done up at the end of last year and everything is pristine.
