We went to Lille to go shopping for the weekend. We made reservations for a 'gastronomic package', which included breakfast and a 3 course dinner.
The hotel itself is wonderful, we were really surprised by the enormous roof construction and the beautifully renovated building including atmospheric lighting and use of original materials.
Entering the room (standard), we were delighted by the space we had. The bathroom was almost the size of my bedroom at home. Everything in the bathroom is marble, which gives it a kitschy look and gives you really cold feet unless you put towels on the floor. The room itself is decorated in a modern style which i really liked. There are coffee and tea making facilities and there is a flatscreen television.
After a day of shopping we went for dinner at the restaurant. We had no choice except for the main course. The entree and dessert were fixed.
As an 'amuse gueule' we had mixed crab combined with ratatouille. That's when we realised this menu wasn't going to be as 'gastronomic' as presented. The combination was just horrible and so was the main course: mediterranean vegetables (zucchini stuffed with blended mushrooms etc) with duck (topped with fried bacon). A true summer-winter combination, but expecting a good 'game plate', we received something which seemed to be improvised (in order to get rid of the leftovers).
After dinner we went to have a drink in the (expensive) bar, we paid 24 euros for two fresh cocktails. But, being a hotel bar and looking at the amount of drink you got, the price was fair.
Overall we were very pleased with our stay, except for the restaurant food.
