As previous reviewers have said, it's a converted army barracks, the rooms are spacious and there's everything you need from a hotel room, but it all feels 'cold' and impersonal and looks as though it's been done on a (tight) budget - things not finished off properly etc. Perfect for a cheap overnight (if you get a good rate), and if you don't want any fancy food, the Courte Paille on the little industrial estate is only a 10-15 minute walk and serves good steaks.
We also thought it very strange that there was a kitchenette in the room, and (very unusual for France) tea/coffee/sugar and plastic(!) cups, but no kitchen items - in fact no way of heating water to make tea or coffee! We got chatting to the guy on reception and commented on this, and he said that there had been stuff when they first opened, but it's pretty much all been stolen - he said the French are notorious for taking anything that's not actually fixed down! Anyway, he happily lent us a pan and proper cups so we could have a hot drink, and although he didn't ask us to return them, we did next morning.
Breakfast was a pleasant surprise - we weren't expecting much, but it was better than many places we've stayed, and a very reasonable price.
This was the second time we've stayed here, and would happily do so again. It would make a good base for staying a few days and exploring the area without spending a fortune - as long as you remember to take some kitchen equipment with you!
