I just stayed at the Fountains hotel on a business trip and was very disappointed. Rooms are very basic, furniture quite old and worn out, the best part of the room is bathroom (which is still very basic).
In my room (527) there was about 30 - 40 cm of free space between the bed and wall (on the other side to the window this was even less). The room had a view to the atrium, with an air-conditioning unit just outside the window (the same applies to all rooms in that atrium).
The choice of food (for breakfast) is poor, especially for vegetarians. But in any case, if you stay at the hotel for a longer time it can get pretty boring after two to three days.
In summary: try to avoid at any cost!
