“Very nice stay but, unfortunately, some noisy neighbours!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2010

Visted Lille, for a weekend break, with my Mum. We got a great deal on the Novotel including breakfast and the hotel is very close to the grand place. The room was spacious enough with a double bed and a double bed settee so ample room for us. We had a safe, tea/coffee and a separate toilet...which is always good! The room was quite modernly decorated, it and the bathroom were very clean. We didn't have the best sleep, on the first night, and we had noisy neighbours who sounded like they were having a conversation in our room at one point!! Breakfast was very nice, with all the usual continental fare and some bacon and scrambled eggs which I didn't try. I stuck to the breads and cheeses and crossiants and pastries. The coffee was very good to get you going in the mornings.
The shower was very good and the Tv had enough channels to keep us entertained if we spent time in the room....we managed to find Formula 1 on a French channel, which was quite amusing!! We did have a few drinks, in the hotel, but the bar was pretty highly priced...as they usually are!! We did not have dinner so cannot comment.
A nice touch was the free internet available in a corner of the bar area which I used a couple of times...you get 20 mins free login anytime. The hotel staff were all friendly and as helpful as they could be.
We enjoyed Lille but I could only spend a weekend there, not enough to see for longer stays in my opinion. We had fantastic weather and ate and drank in some really nice places.
I would stay at the Novotel again!

Stayed one night at the Novotel Lille Centre Grand Place. The room was fairly spacious,clean and complete with tea and coffee making facilities (and mini-bar). Despite getting a room on the main road, it wasn't too noisy (double glazing), which was nice. The bed was comfortable, but I didn't get on with the pillows at all. They were far too soft for me.
The bathroom was good, clean and quite modern,
Breakfast is good with a selection of pastries, jams, cakes, as well as scrambled, eggs, bacon, etc...So a good selection to suit all tastes.
The location is great - everything is only 5-10 minute walk away.
I would stay there again, even for a leisure break.

Novotel Grand Place is pretty much what you would expect from a hotel chain. I stayed with my friend and goddaughter aged 11. The location is not bad, about 20 minutes walk from the Eurostar station and not far from the town centre.
The foyer is bright, open and modern and my goddaughter was suitably impressed by modern toilets downstairs including the electronic dustbin and the sink with changing coloured lights! The room was fine for this kind of hotel. The pull-out sofa bed that I had was comfortable enough. The toilet was separate from the bathroom which was clean and modern.
Breakfast is more than adequate with a good range of cereals, breads and danishes, yoghurt, fruit salad, cold cuts and cheeses as well as sausages, bacon, mushrooms and scrambled eggs. As with all these places, don’t leave it too late to come down to breakfast or you may find the offerings sparse. We also tried the Novotel Cafe (aka the breakfast area in the evening) which is pleasant enough. A wide enough menu although I did find it a bit pricey (16 euros for their Novotel hamburger, 11 euros for ricotta and spinach ravioli!). I think the very few clientele that did use the Novotel Cafe in the evening attest to the high prices!
Best value items in Lille? Flunch (restaurant) in town and the zoo (which is free!).

My mother and I went to Lille for a short break for her birthday and chose this hotel as a last minute change due to its location (when Eurostar booked us initially in a hotel further away from the town centre without clarifying that to us).
I booked for 2 nights and was told it was a 'superior room' with a double and a single bed. Location was good for Lille (the reasdon we paid more to move), but for the price and description one would expect two proper beds or a large double. We had asked for a two beded room but instead found a small double, and then a pull out sofa bed. That to me was not a proper single bed! Fine for a small family, but ror two adults who don't want to sleep in the same bed, this meant one of us had to take the sofa bed. Eurostar did not make that clear in our booking and neither is it clear on the Accor website. We were told by reception that in the hotel all the rooms had the same set up. For £120/night one would expect more. I slept badly on the sofa bed, and was exhausted by the time I got back to the UK and subsquently fell ill. Otherwise the staff and general ambience of the hotel were fine, but the bed set up tarnished our trip.

Disappointed with this hotel, as it has a fairly good location (I would have preferred to stay further north in the main action but it was only a short walk) but apart from that it feels like you are staying in a quickly and poorly built building, which has no soul. Each morning we were woken up by people just getting up and having showers or walking down the corridor. The room was stuffy and hot and hard to regulate temperature and the bed was two small single beds pushed together. Overall the hotel was average, I would suggest staying somewhere else

We had to stay for one night in Lille,from saturday to sunday, and chose the Novotel Lille Centre hoping to get a certain standard, but we were disappointed. We stayed in Ibis hotel before (not in Lille)and heard that the Novotel was much better, in the same Accor group but we didn't find such a big difference.
On the good side, the location of the hotel is very good, near the grand place and le vieux Lille so you can walk easily but it is not, in my view, a three stars hotel. The rooms are quite large but the access to the bathroom is very uncomfortable, especially when you are two, through a glass double door too close to the bed. The colors of the decor are grey, beige with a touch of orange but the all thing quite tired. The curtains are not well hanged, some of the hooks missing and it looks very depressing. The lobby is not welcoming and we even didn't want to sit in the restaurant for breakfast. We will not go there again.
