The Midland is an old style grand hotel from the railway era. The staff are particularly welcoming. Whilst registering I was offered a glass of wine, as a thank you for booking. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The restaurant was as shown on the Hotel web site and I found the food tasty and well prepared. Throughout my stay... More

The food was absolutely lovely and the service was fantastic. The staff made all of us feel special, especially my mum and my mother in law. A huge thanks to all at The Midland, in particular Clem, Liz and Matis who made the day one to remember.

Held my mum's 80th birthday party here last night. The staff were very professional and attentive, especially the events managers Kate and Gary, but also the bar staff and receptionists.

We stayed one night at the lovely Midland Hotel but all wished it could have been for longer - 4 adults and one toddler. All our rooms were excellent and the overall friendly welcome and standard of cleanliness everywhere were particularly noticeable. On arrival, when we were all tired after a long journey from Wiltshire, the bar-staff bent over backwards... More

Coming from the South of England I was ignorant of the history of the mills around Bradford. A trip to nearby Saltaire and a walk around Bradford was enlightening and enjoyable. Staying at the historic Midland hotel added to the pleasure. A lovely welcome from the reception staff and a free glass of wine sipped in the comfortable seats by... More

The hotel was fantastic, the rooms were fab, the service was great, the location was epic right smack in the middle of shopping central :) the only thing I have a problem with was the food menu..
