“MORE THAN A 3 “CHIMNEY” HOTEL”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

We were welcomed by the owner, a very pleasant and helpful lady. (When I made the booking she enquired if we needed picking up from the airport!)

We stayed one night on the way out, one night on the way back.

The hotel is easy to find and the private parking is very handy.

There are some areas in the hotel which look old fashioned but this does not seem to affect the bedrooms.
Ours was very spacious; it looked like a suite. On one side there was the bed and a TV; on the other one a sofa with a coffee table and a desk. There was also a cupboard with more than you can expect: a fridge, a microwave, a kettle with tea, coffee, chocolate.
The bedding was comfortable and despite our bedroom overlooking a busy street, we had a good night sleep.

Breakfast was plentiful, with cheese, ham, yogurts, brioches, croissants, cakes, fresh fruit and fruit salad and a vast choice of marmalades.

We would definitely go back.

Visiting Lille with your car, consider this excellent small hotel. Returned after two years and found that the standards have been maintained. Eva, the Polish/French owner runs a freindly , well run establishment. Her breakfasts are to die for. Choice of fresh baguettes, breads,etc with top quality preserves,yougarts real fruit juice and exceptional coffee.
There is a charming sitting room with an expansive library of books and a massage chair to soothe away your aches and pains. Films are Eva's interest and the decor of the room reflects this
Bedrooms are tastefully decorated and with modern en-suite.
There is ample parking at the hotel.
Not suitable for the disabled as the stairs are a little steep.

The Hotel Du Centre is an unpretentious little hotel in the pretty village of Wattignies which is now a Suburb of Lille. I stayed there ten years ago on my first visit to the area. In those days it was a crumbling wreck of a place with creaky beds and showers that leaked all over the bedroom floor. The best that could have been said of the place was that the owner kept a decent bottle of brandy in the smoky bar at the rear of the building.

Invited there as a guest of the local hockey club I approached the place with more than a little trepidation. I needn’t have worried; the lovely Polish/French lady who now owns the place has transformed it into stylish modern establishment which still manages to retain its old world charm.
The pleasant roomy air-conditioned bedrooms are equipped with large flat screen televisions, excellent bath and showers, comfortable beds all tastefully refurbished to the highest standard.
The host is friendly and attentive without being intrusive making you feel at home within minutes of arrival.
Breakfast is a traditional French Petite dejeuner but of outstanding quality. A selection of the usual cereals fruit juices are available with top quality ham cheeses baguettes croissants and the most delicious fresh jams and of course coffee and chocolate.
The only fault that I could find (and this is due to character and design of the building) is that the staircases to the ten bedrooms are fairly steep which renders the place unsuitable for the disabled or infirm.
