I've stayed here a few times for work and the first time was great. Every time it seems to have got a little worse for the same price.
The most recent time I visited, the bed I got was extremely uncomfortable in a very small, hot room. Opening the windows caused a lot of noise from the air conditioning to come into the room. This wasn't even in the height of summer, so I wouldn't like to be in that same room during a hot week.
I will say that the breakfast staff are extremely pleasant and the hotel as a whole does a very good job of catering to special requests. The check in times can be quite long and they don't seem to keep a record of your details from previous stays. The staff at reception can be a little inconsistent with the way they work as well.
I didn't get a chance to use any of the conference facilities of the hotel, but the included gym and swimming pool pass is an excellent extra and the hotel is in a good location for access to the nearby universities.
