I was only here overnight and for a conference, but I found the hotel to be pleasant and friendly. I didn't pay for it, so I've no idea if it represented value, but I would have happily paid a fair price.
Several reviews have commented on the rooms being small - I didn't find this to be the case. I found the hotel had, if anything, too much space, which did mean at times it was confusing to find things through the twisty corridors.
The rooms were tidy, well presented, well lit. All were supllied with WiFi and wired connections which, over the University network, performed well. We did have some issues during the conference as the wifi kicked us out as we moved around rooms, then sometimes gave trouble re-connecting. But when it worked, it worked very well indeed.
The conference area, which doubles as the bar area, had soft drinks and tea and coffee on tap - I'm not sure if that specific to our conference, but it was most welcome.
The breakfast was excellent. As all buffet breakfasts do, it suffered a bit from "been standing there too long" syndrome, but it was all filling and the choice was great, even for a vegetarian and, as an extra brownie point in terms of the latter, the meat and non-meat products were entirely separate...first time I've seen that.
The catered buffet lunch was gobbled with gusto as I was busy, but was well above average, as were the cakes and buns supplied in intermissions.
Excellent impression and excellent venue....but I've no idea of the value
