We only had one night here en route to Calais to catch the Shuttle home. This brand new hotel is set walking distance from the Eurostar station so great for getting there from England. It was only finished 2010 and has a lovely brand new feel to it.
The rooms are done to a very high standard with free wifi and TV and are, as you would expect from a hotel which is a glass triangle, ultra modern. The bed was probably one of the most comfortable I had slept on in a hotel.
There are two restaurants. One buffet and one a la carte - the one we went to. The food was absolutely first class. The waiters spoke good English and were so passionate about what they were serving it made the whole dining experience more special.
We went briefly into the Casino to look around and had a drink. There was a night club as well, but we were too tired to go (and too full after a 7 course taster menu!).
All in all, highly recommended but too far from Lille town centre unless you take the car for sightseeing.
