A rare find in Lille

We stayed at Le Champlain while on a city break to Lille, what a great find, spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable. Our room had everything comfortable bed, fantastic shower, coffee machine, flat screen TV and all our needs catered for. Breakfast could be taken in the room or downstairs in the... read more

We had a delicious lunch here at a very affordable price. The restaurant has a 'bib gourmand' appreciation from Michelin. It's small and cosy. Unfortunately the 'patronne' wasn't very warm-hearted. She didn't seem to do her job with pleasure.

We wouldn't consider stopping in Lille and staying anywhere else. Silvie and Denis delight in pleasing their guests. They have restored a period townhouse with extraordinary quality of detail, carved out four luxe suites and rooms with dining and sitting area on the ground floor. Within the rooms, quality is the definitive word from mattresses and linens to the lush... More

Stayed at the la Maison du Champlain with my wife for a few days, and also visited the restaurant. Denis and Sylvie are wonderful hosts, the rooms are fantastic and we both really enjoyed walking around Lille ( using recommendations that Denis gave us). Went to the restaurant for an evening meal, and it was just an incredible experience that... More

My husband and I went to Le Champlain for our 5 yr wedding anniversary. We stayed in Suite 4 and were blown away with the beauty of the suite and decor. Hosts were unbelievable, picked up from the train in a old black cab now branded Le Champlain, lots of information given to us about Lille and then the most... More

My wife and I have eaten here regularly for seven years in this family-owned and managed business, and it is the best restaurant of its type in Lille. M. Gaboriau's dishes are always highly creative and original - you never see them anywhere else. Two fixed menus are offered, le menu du marche and a fish menu; the dishes change... More
