Louvre-Lens Hotel & Restaurant by the museum near A26

If ever there was a romantic weekend break with wow factor, it’s this one… because tonight you’re sleeping at the Louvre! No, not at the Parisian one that everyone knows, but at the incredible state-of-the-art outpost in the Northern France town of Lens. Of course, you’re not sleeping at the museum itself but at the 4* Louvre-Lens hotel right opposite (far more comfortable!), a hotel near Calais (and close to Lille too) that’s part of a regeneration process, breathing new life into a row of old miners’ cottages. It’s intriguing to think what the miners who lived and toiled right here would have made of its after-life: a dog-friendly hotel with a contemporary décor, restaurant terrace and luxury sauna, all on the doorstep of Lens town centre, characterful in its own right for Art Deco architecture and an unusual locomotive shaped train station.

Once red brick but now with a makeover of evocative charcoal tones, the Louvre-Lens hotel near the A26 motorway has been wholly repurposed with designer flare to allow for its new identity as a luxury place to stay. Your executive room (with queen size bed, Sothys luxury products and the softest of robes…) would look at home in the pages of a luxury interiors magazine ‒ with its black palette and earthy exposed brick lifted by crisp white linens and contemporary touches. There’s more luxury besides: a Nespresso coffee machine, selection of ‘Mariage Frères’ refined teas ‒ and a bowl of sweet French bonbons!

And how about a relaxing sauna… but with a twist? Here’s one with a huge window (black, of course) looking out over the Louvre-Lens museum and surrounding lawns. And now you’re all relaxed, maybe you’re after somewhere memorable to eat on your romantic weekend break? Look no further than the Louvre-Lens Hotel’s own restaurant ‒ Brasserie ‘Le Galibot’ ‒ not just for its locally-inspired cuisine but for elegant features like the vintage mining lamps angled towards the tables ‒ glowing with stories. Maybe you’d prefer to eat outside ‒ since the terrace overlooks the workers’ gardens ‒ or even dine in your room: room-service is 24/7 and offers simple but tempting choices like a platter of cold meats or homemade mini-burgers.

After the Louvre-Lens Hotel’s generous breakfast, head on over to the Louvre-Lens museum just over the way. We’re sure that’s why you’ve come! Sleek and minimalistic, works of art are arranged chronologically and in a three-dimensional way to allow visitors to properly engage with – and journey through – 5,000 years of art and history. And there’s plenty more to discover right on the doorstep: there’s Lens itself, a 20-minute walk or €10 taxi away, or the nearby twin ‘terrils’ (slag heaps), one of the most iconic of Northern France’s sights on the UNESCO-listed mining heritage trail. Get ready for an invigorating (and calf-enhancing!) walk and embrace the horizon from on high. While you’re up there, don’t forget to take a selfie…. there’s a beer back at the hotel bar for anyone who does!
