I've stayed in this hotel numerous times, as I'm working in Utrecht a lot of my time.
The hotel itself is geared towards congresses, as many hotels in and around Utrecht. In this hotel, this is managed well and it doesn't impact on the other hotel services. The hotel is located just of the A12 motorway, takes 15 mins to the center of Utrecht by car. The sound insulation is good, so no motorway noise in the rooms. Don't go for the view, unless you like car-spotting.
The reception staff are friendly and always at hand when you need something. They should do something about their doorcards though, I regularly have to return to the reception due to faulty cards. I've alerted the hotel to this and they promised to replace all cards asap, so hopefully this will be resolved soon.
The rooms are spacious (I generally take the deluxe room, which has a bath and minibar) and clean. The hotel offers wireless internet through a third party, meaning you have to pay for it (approx €13 for 3 hours) and for that money, the wireless reception is not good enough. To me, this service should be free anyway, I don't understand why hotels geared towards business travelers take the easy way out and go for third party hotspots, as it definitely impacts on my choice for a hotel.
Anyway, the breakfast at the hotel has a good selection of hot and cold foods and the breakfast room is nicely decorated. The biggest plus is the restaurant manager who is responsible for the breakfast. He is a very friendly guy, always ready to help you with a smile, so you can start your day in a good mood.
The restaurant itself has very good food, a lot better than what I expect from hotel food. I used to stay in the Mercure Utrecht Nieuwegein before, but I changed to this hotel, for a large part because of the better restaurant in Bunnik. Compliments to the chef, who puts creative and tasty recipes on the, regularly changing menu (the right balance between creativity and taste, that is, not the 'trendy without taste' concoctions that you see often)
In general, this is a good hotel to stay in for business people who don't need to be in the city center.
