An elegant seminar at the Grand Hôtel La Cloche Dijon MGallery
The Grand Hôtel La Cloche Dijon MGallery reflects the character of the Burgundy region: refined, tasty, surprising… Come and discover this destination hotel nestled alongside the wine route, combining the classic and the contemporary.
While the majestic framework of the Grand Hôtel la Cloche Dijon MGallery dates back to 1884, the edifice even retains some traces of the original Ostelerie de la Cloche, which stood here in the 15th century. Many famous guests, including Napoleon III, Ferdinand de Lesseps, and Grace Kelly have since shaped the history of this grand establishment. Since becoming an MGallery hotel nearly a decade ago, the Grand Hôtel la Cloche has lost none of its splendour. Quite the opposite! The only 5-star hotel in Dijon, it impresses its visitors with its classic elegance and modern touches.
Decorated with timeless materials such as granite and walnut, the hotel’s 88 rooms feature reproductions of works on display at the Dijon Museum of Fine Arts. That artistic theme runs throughout the hotel, culminating in the presence of imposing works such as the famous bear sculptures by Richard Orlinsky, a contemporary French artist.
… to the art of living!
That artistic bent is also reflected in the crockery. By no measure does the Grand Hotel la Cloche fail to live up to its name. Its restaurant, “Les Jardins by La Cloche”, has been lauded by the city’s residents. And rightly so! For Master Chef Aurélien Mauny serves up gourmet bistro-style cuisine to delight both the eyes and the taste buds. To that end, he has an absolute wealth of locally produced ingredients to work with… Speaking of local produce, the hotel recently opened “20 by la Cloche”, a magnificent wine shop that can be reserved for business events: an opportunity to organise a wine tasting experience that will be a highlight of your trip!
A luxurious setting to host guests
The Grand Hôtel la Cloche Dijon MGallery has spacious conference rooms. Each one is bathed in sunlight, and they offer a total surface area of 600 sq. m. and are fully equipped: fibre optic broadband, video projectors, an excellent sound system… The Rameau and Rude rooms—each one 70 sq. m. and both overlooking the hotel’s interior garden—can be laid out for any type of seminar. A U-shaped configuration, a classroom or theatre layout… The hotel’s teams are on hand to adapt the rooms to your needs. Suitable for smaller conferences, the 30 sq. m. Valentin room also overlooks the interior garden and is a quiet setting where your colleagues can focus on their work.
For large-scale conferences, there is the 120 sq. m. Napoléon III room. With enough space for 200 people, its crystal chandeliers and oak panelling and floors make it the perfect setting for a prestigious cocktail party. And lastly, something not many hotels can boast… A screening room with 17 cinema-style seats, designed for business guests! What better way to give your presentations some extra punch and make them a huge success?
And not just business conferences…
Between meetings, your guests will have the chance to relax at the “Spa by La Cloche”, with three treatment rooms, a sauna, a hammam, and a counter-current swimming lane. And this being Burgundy, naturally the hotel has splendid wine cellars, which have been fitted out for receptions of private groups. The perfect place to enjoy a meal specially created by the restaurant’s chef.
An immersive Burgundy experience to soak in during your incentive events. Right in the city centre, the hotel is the ideal starting point for a pleasant stroll through the so-called “city of one hundred spires”. By following the “owl trail”, you will discover the most beautiful buildings in this history-steeped city, which was once the capital of the Dukes of Burgundy. That same trail will also lead you to the Museum of Fine Arts. The tour then continues to one of the many vineyards surrounding Dijon. Climb on a bicycle or into a Citroën 2CV to take a trip along the legendary wine route. And to immerse yourself in this Burgundy art of living, nothing could be easier: Dijon is not far from Geneva and can be reached in less than two hours by train from Paris or Lyon.
