Once again stayed here for ease of visiting my son at university. From reception to the cleaner in the lift staff are friendly & helpful. Defiantly recommend as a base for Bradford. Great location with cinema, restaurants & cocktails :)

I have stayed in this hotel on numerous occasions with groups of various sizes and have never had reason to write a negative review.

When we had trouble finding the entrance to this hotel we phoned. Although we could see the builiding as we circumnavigated the block several times we could not find the hotel entrance.

Staff were once more outstanding, its not the price but the attentive and honest staff who make us come back. 3 times I have had to leave my wife alone. The staff have always ensured she had somewhere to put her bags and even a place to sit and have a cuppa.

I know what to expect from Holiday Inn Express but I can honestly say this felt like more of a Travelodge. I've stayed at nicer Travelodges, and were it not for the free toothbrush and breakfast I could easily have said I was in one!
