What a great hotel this was! Nearly new, it's maybe a little out of the way but as we had a car that didn't really matter to us - we were in the city centre in just a few minutes. I know there is public transport nearby.
We stayed in an "apartment" room which had a huge double bed - 2m wide by 2.2m long! - as well as a double sofa bed. There was tons of room between the beds, and we also had a desk with chair, a phone (free calls to fixed phones across Europe) and a TV (which we didn't use). I believe most rooms also have an iPod speaker/charging dock.
The bathroom was functional - toilet, sink, shower - but spotless. The shower screen squeaked a little.
There was a small bar fridge and also a kjitchen setup in the room but the sink was not working (there was a sign). This included a small microwave oven and a kettle.
Half an hour's drive away, in France, there is a fantastic and very v ery huge supermarket - Carrefour - we went there and were amazed. You could easily get food for dinner here and cook it in your room.
We went to the (recommended) local Italian restaurant for dinner and it was pretty good. They also serve pizzas at the hotel - probably frozen, but they smelled great.
The (included) breakfast was good and quite extensive. They also do an early breakfast from 4.30am for early risers and people who are just getting back from big nights out.
The staff were friendly and gave good directions. They spoke good English.
But the best thing of all (especially for our kids) was .... the WII game unit in the foyer. They had a blast playing wii sports, while we had a drink from the bar (really a couple of fridges full of drinks - you could get glasses at reception). This was fantastic for them but would also be great for a group of friends or a conference group.
There is a sauna and fitness centre in the hotel, but we didn't check it.
Free parking was available in front of the hotel.
