Hostellerie du Nord Review

This sturdy white mansion, which began life as a coach house in the 17th century, is now a prim hotel, with small, white-wall bedrooms adorned with gilt-framed pictures and named after artists, including Cézanne (who stayed here in 1872) and Van Gogh—the Chambre Van Gogh, a junior suite, provides the wood-beam quaintest, if priciest, option. Rubicund owner Joël Boilleaut, whose wife Corinne presides over the hotel, is a noted chef and expects his diners to linger over the three-course prix-fixe lunch menu ($$$$, with coffee and a half bottle of wine thrown in) or four-course dinner banquet, when tuna carpaccio with fennel and spinach, and guinea fowl with licorice and apple, raise gastronomic eyebrows. The restaurant is closed Monday, Saturday lunch, and Sunday dinner, but a scaled-down bistro service provides a more than adequate alternative, with scallops and jugged hare among the healthy choices.
