I stayed in this hotel for about a week while doing some business in the area. It is perfectly fine, although you will find nothing at walking distance. Fortunately a modern area, with several restaurants and bars, named CityCentre (it is not THE City Centre) is a 5 minute drive away.
My room was on the ground floor which can get a bit loud, especially during the weekend.
The internet connection is quite slow and you have to 're-authenticate' each device a couple of times a day, which is a bit inconvenient. There is no safe in the room so if you have anything of value (laptop, travel money, iPad) then you have to drop that off at the front desk.... every time. Very inconvenient. The fridge and airco in my room also made a lot of noise during the night, so I had to turn it off completely.
The dinner area and bar look like a McDonalds, so I did not make use of it (the food may be perfectly fine, I didn't try)
The desk in each room comes with a nice ergonomic Herman Miller chair, so if you have to do some work from your hotel room then that is no problem.
Finally, the shower could do with a bit of a fix up as it has come loose.
