We went for a Eurostar weekend in July 2012 and I booked directly with the hotel, getting a good discount for a corner suite which was huge and very luxurious with coffee maker, bottled water and lovely toiletries, as you might expect from 5 star. The bathroom had a roll top bath and large walk in shower with jack & jill basins, although the toilet was located elsewhere on the suite, which was a little unusual. The bed was huge and very comfortable. The hotel is five minutes walk from the International station and very close to the shopping mall, with the main part of Lille a few minutes walk away too. The reception staff were very pleasant and helpful with excellent English. The hotel is attached to the casino, which we did not have time to visit this time.
Our only gripe was that on the day we arrived the 'fresh fast food' restaurant closed, it seemed for good and the fine dining restaurant on the first floor was also closed, until some time in August, meaning dining was limited to the one (Bistro) restaurant was the only one open during our stay. This was where breakfast was served and the food was good both for breakfast and in the evening, but the menu was a little limited in choice.
Above said, we would not hesitate to return to the Barriere Lille in the future.
