(back to Hotels Tournai Homepage)


This 2000 year old town likes to flatter itself with its origins which in turn led the town through very different eras : from a Gallo-Roman to a Frankish era (it became a royal town during the reign of Childric and Clovis) to a French, English (it is the only Belgian town to have ever been under Henry VIII), Spanish, Dutch, French (Louis VIII granted the town the still existing urban structure), Austrian, French and period again (during the Revolution and the Empire), and then finally it became Dutch until the independence of Belgium.

Nowadays, Tournai is the touristic and cultural capital of a region in the middle of a vast junction of roads, rivers, railways and even air routes.

Overshadowed by its monuments, precious traces of 2000 years of history, the "Cité des cinq clochers" (the town of the five bell towers) welcomes and invites you to its multiple festivities, in the rhytm of the seasons, during which over and over again life pulses through this exceptional spot of Picardy at the borders of the Walloon provinces of Belgium.

The CATHEDRALE Hotel Tournai is the ideal hotel for both business and leisure travelers.
The completely renovated hotel has 60 bedrooms, all with private bathroom, color television with remote control, direct dial telephone and hair drier.

In addition, the hotel offers a restaurant, a bar and several meeting facilities for up to 200 persons.
