I stayed one night for business. As others have said it is in the middle of a business park but that's probably why a lot of the guests stay there! It cost me less than £15 to get back to the airport in a taxi - ask to be taken to the international train station, it's a lot cheaper and just 2minutes on the monorail into the airport.
I slept really well. Room was a good size and very comfortable. There's self-controlled air con/ heating and the windows open if you'd prefer fresh air. I didn't have an evening meal but the breakfast was very nice apart from the sausages were a bit cheap looking - the sort you tend to get in a chippy rather than a nice meaty banger! There's a bar and a restaurant as well as room service available but in the local area there doesn't appear to be many other options for eating. You'd need a car to get out and about.
Parking was free and there was plenty of it. There's free wifi in the rooms and even an ipod dock. Every room has an iron and ironing which I always appreciate - there's nothing worse than arriving somewhere late and having to wait ages for them to bring an iron up to your room. I couldn't find the hairdryer but apparently it's in a drawer in the wardrobe (not the most obvious if you ask me!!).
The only thing I thought my room was lacking was somewhere to put my bag down. There would be space for one of those foldup stands but I had to use the armchair. Also some biscuits on the tea & coffee tray wouldn't go amiss!
The leisure facilities look great but unfortunately i had an injured knee so couldn't try them out :-(
So all in all a good base if you're in the area and don't mind staying on a business park. I had a great sleep, didn't want to get up in the morning the bed was so comfy!
