L'Hermitage Gantois, Autograph Collection
A black and white marble-floored gallery overlooking the Cour d'Honneur shows temporary modern art exhibitions at L'Hermitage Gantois, while the small museum houses a collection of curious pieces dating from the hotel's days as a hospice. Books about Lille can be perused in the armchairs of the wood-panelled library just off the Grand Salon, while benches in the shade of an ancient glycine tree provide a pleasant space to relax in the Cour des Soeurs courtyard during summer.
The hotel has a conference space also suitable for cocktails parties, banquets, and weddings. The oldest part of the hotel, the Salle des Hospices, dates from 1460, and can accommodate up to 200 people in an elegant setting with chandeliers, stained-glass window, high vaulted ceiling and a rare 15th century fresco.
L'Hermitage Gantois is a non-smoking property and provides complimentary wireless Internet access. Valet parking (surcharge), offsite parking (surcharge), and street parking (metered) are all available.

Where to Eat
Restaurant de L'Hermitage Gantois - The restaurant is a bold mix of old and modern, with an original vaulted ceiling painted red and gold, a polished black marble floor, crisp white tablecloths, black, white and gold crockery and fresh flowers. Meat and fish specialities dominate the menu and sample dishes include Veal's Liver with Conserved Shallots and Creamed Horseradish Sauce, and Crab Brandade with Shellfish Oil and Crunchy Langoustine Tails. Open for buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Estaminet Gantois - The Estaminet comprises two rooms: one on street level with a beamed ceiling, tiled floor and wood-panelled zinc bar, and the second in the vaulted cellar with brick walls, discreet lighting and period features. It serves regional favourites such as Moules-Frites (mussels cooked in white wine served with French fries), Grilled Rib Roast and Chicken Liver Terrine. Open for lunch and dinner.
L'Hermitage Gantois Bar - Formerly a courtyard, the bar is overlooked on three sides by the historic buildings that comprise the hotel. The atrium roof and glass façade let in natural light and, teamed with the leather sofas and easy chairs, give a modern feel to this area. The bar serves breakfast and afternoon tea as well as light snacks and a range of drinks. Live piano music is played every evening and guest artists appear on Saturday evenings.
Breakfast is served daily in the breakfast room.
