A large group of friends and I travelled to Valenciennes where groups of us stayed at different accomodations (because we left it to the last minute to book, of course). A friend found Le Grand Duc and booked so my husband and I just copied him - and we are glad that we did. This accomodation is one that I have spoken about time and time again due to its quirky, artistic touch, the beautiful and spacious rooms available and the wonderful host Philippe. We stayed for a few nights and loved the fact that the tram stop was right out the front, if we wanted to walk to town it was only 20 minutes, we had everything we needed in the accomodation and we enjoyed a chat with Philippe as well, who was shared so much with us about where to go and what to see.
We found the price to be pretty good as well. If you're going to be out and about for most of the time but want somewhere nice to return to - this place is perfect. Make sure you enjoy some time in the beautiful back garden.More
