A city-centre, 15th-century, five-star hotel in Lille, with breakfast, a tapas plate, guaranteed room upgrade and late check-out, plus festive availability
Named by Condé Nast Traveller as one of the best luxury hotels in Lille, L'Hermitage Gantois was the first five-star hotel to open in the charming city of Lille in northern France. A listed building since 1923 and built in the 15th century, it would be hard to find a hotel in Lille boasting more history, romantic charm or character than this one.
To say that this former medieval hospital has character is an understatement; the place is filled with wood panelled walls, beamed ceilings, ornate fireplaces, marble flooring and stunning original tapestries that bring its 15th century origins into the present day. Furnishings are suitably elegant and impressive to complement the architecture and the quirks of the building with contemporary design favoured in the bathrooms and the modern glass-roofed bar.
The hotel also has a pretty courtyard garden, a relaxed brasserie, a piano bar housed in a stunning glass extension, a spa with steam room, a library and an elegant gourmet restaurant. With a location in the heart of Lille, between Grand Place and Hotel de Ville, you're within easy walking distance of the sights of the city - just a 10-minute walk from the old town and the Palais des Beaux Arts is just 500 metres away.
