The staff at the front desk were very nice and accommodating. There is a free on-site fitness center which is good for a workout (cardio or weights or classes) when you are on business or vacation. This I liked very much. The rooms are a bit average in look and feel and could use a refresh - especially the bathrooms. It wasn't dirty or anything like that.
The thing that bothered me was that they expected you to pay a lot 30GBP for 3 days for WIFI - highway robbery - as it wasn't the fastest connection I'd ever experienced. I understand they will do away with this in 2014, but that's too little to late for me - who pays for WIFI anymore? Especially if you are travelling for business, it is a job requirement that you can connect each morning/evening just to do your work/email. I did try the two "public" computers in the lobby but one was not operational and the other one wanted me to pay. Not sure if the Ibis (close by) has free WIFI but it is worth a check.
